    One idiot doesn't excuse another! Your numbers for PNB should examine separately the period between 1967 and 1987, then examine what happens to the Palestinian economy as a result of the Intifada, then check again to see what the Oslo years have done (1994-2000), then again examine the Intifada al Aksa years. Had you done this honest comparison, you would have discovered what we all know: when there was no violence, the Palestinian economy was more thriving than that of Egypt and Jordan. The Intifadas mark the decline of the Palestinian economy, not the fact of being occupied by Israel. The Intifadas brought about the fencing-in of Gaza, and later the West Bank, and the construction of the Erez checkpoint: before that, there was free passage from the Palestinian Territories into Israel. Surely Mr. Stroessler you remember that. And how do you not remember that Israel authorized twice the construction of a seaport in Gaza: Palestinian violence stopped the works.
