From a micro-political-do something now, point of view the government must think they are justified in bolstering Abbas. Just think, if this didn't happen maybe Moshiach would have come on the ninth of Av. But, G-d saw the people were not ready...so many more must die...more despair, frustration, suffering, mourning... At some point in the future the soon to be Palestinian state will obtain weapons of mass destruction...and may I naively ask...who will they target? Who will supply them? Who will profit in the process? The American Jews who send billions to support Israel have a question...how are you spending our money, to what end? Do you think supplying these rifles is in everyone's best interest...please explain, with historical evidence...not a gambler's addiction excuse please...
