    Israel provides palestinians with 99% of their electricity but most palestinians never even bother to pay their bills but the Israeli government turns a blind eye and consiinues to give them power. Of course as Israel Electric looses so much money by writing off palestinian debt so they need to make up the losses elsewhere and the way thats done is increasing bills for Israelis. We should arrange for Egypt or Jordan to start providing power to palestinians not only will it mean we won't have to pay their bills but also no palestinians means less strain on the system so there is less need to build new power plants. let the palestinians enjoy their sewage. They want a state so let them show some initiative in power generation and cleaning up sewage.
