    ... in Gaza for the Palestinians living there. All it involved was for the loafer Palestinian leaders to get out of the way and allow elderly Jewish women with real humanitarian concerns and organizational skills to get the job done with all the vast sacrificial aid pouring in from the West. In this scenario no corrupt Palestinian leaders would be able to confiscate the incoming cash for their personal gain, no more Swiss bank accounts would be opened in these charlatans' names, no more monies would be siphoned off for futile terror activities against Israel, no wooden signs would be posted beside the roads promising this facility and that and then stay as undeveloped sites as thieving Arafat did, and not even one dollar would be left over to purchase even one unnecessary Kalashnikov bullet. Palestinian soldiers could then just patrol their border with Israel dressed only in Bermuda shorts and sandals and carry only pocket combs for personal grooming and have no trouble with Israeli soldiers warming up chai and handing out baklava treats at friendly get-togethers. All this sounded really boring for the militant Palestinians though as it was much more sexy to instead to try and mimic fictional Hollywood macho blockbusters in real life.
