    Neither the US nor Israel want to see the PA fold for lack of funds, so the money will keep flowing. By the way, you can dismiss Nabil al-Arabi’s announcement yesterday that Arab funds will be forthcoming. The Secretary General of the Arab League has no discretion in the matter – he is merely a gofer. At best he was speculating or dreaming or more likely making poses for the Arab press. The Arabs WILL NOT donate any money to Palestine until they are sure that it will become a fully independent sovereign state. Right now all they see is Israel gobbling up the West Bank, and they expect what remains will become a dependency of Israel’s. They have NO plan of pouring money into that. No one in his right mind waters somebody else’s garden. So get used to it. Get used to it. The cost of the PA will ALWAYS be borne by the West, who created the problem to begin with.
