    "In March, the World Bank projected that by the end of 2006 Palestinian poverty and unemployment levels would rise to 67 and 40 percent, and personal incomes would drop by 30 percent" This deepening financial crisis and rise in the poverty level is a crime against humanity and the Palestinian people by Israel and the US. The Palestinian people committed no crime by selecting Hamas as their leaders in a free and fair election instead of the corrupt Fatah govern- ment . Shame on Israel and the US for their Collective punishment against the Palestinian people. They are playing with innocent lives. According to Dr. Alice Rothchild report who led an American-Jewish medical delegation to Gaza last summer and found the Palestinian people were already devastated by five years of a military operation: "We witnessed the devastating consequences for the civilian population of years of Israeli military operations. The check- points, closures and the severe restriction on movement and economic activity have contributed to rising unemployment, poverty accompanied by unusually high rates of infant mortality, acute and chronic malnutrition and inadequate outpatient and hospital care. Her report is at: http://www.vopj.org/conflict22.htm Thus it seem Israel and the US are pushing the Palestinian people over the edge and we must all demand that they end their reckless action now! Outraged, Dutch
