Palestinians Ransack Gush Katif Greenhouses
Arnon Regular’s article in Ha'aretz is very revealing. Apparently, some 200 dunams of greenhouses in Gaza were overrun by dozens of armed Palestinians.
International donors had purchased the greenhouses for the benefit of the Palestinians. According to Palestinian sources, two militias affiliated with Fatah were hired by the PA to guard the greenhouses, which were all under cultivation. But instead, the guards decided to rob them. They used bulldozers to break the iron supports of the buildings' frames, then swarmed over the equipment inside, which included piping and irrigation computers. The damage to the greenhouses, meant to provide employment for hundreds of Palestinians, is irreparable, the sources said.
I wish I could say I’m surprised. As the saying goes, the Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. I fully expect to hear spin any moment making this Israel's fault.
