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.

Again. Pretty soon there won't be any greenhouses left in the region.

The local ethics seem to be a tad unsophisticated:
- if it is alive - kill it
- if it can be stolen - steal it
- if something is standing buldozer it
I can see some charities collecting for the Palestinians now.

BTW where was the Israeli security to protect those precious greenhouses?
Shame on you Israel!!

I'm getting mighty fed up with these morons. Let 'em starve. But that won't happen because aid will pour in to save them.

The worst part is that some NGO will step in and make sure that no one goes hungry. The Palestinians are well aware that Western do gooders will always take care of them. Why work when you can get it by begging?
The best thing that could happen is that all Western aid finally stops bailing out the Palestinians. Make them responsible for their own lives. I don't want to see my money help little Palestinians grow up to be homicide bombers.

Hi,

I recently installed the Israel_Radio toolbar and thought you might also find it interesting.
It has lots of useful features and seems to be well-liked by a large number of users (including my self).

To find out more about this toolbar and download it, go to:

(I use Firefox 1.5.0.1 ... no brag, just fact.)

Welfare is a form of slavery and the continued economic mess feeds the cult of death.

This is a little off subject esther, but I thought you might be interested in this.
Hamas has called Israel hypocrites because Israel is cutting off aid to Palestine. Hamas claims that they were fairly elected and that Israel is being hypocritical for denying aid. Why would Israel help aid a government that has Israel's destruction as their number one priority?
Hamas must think that Israel is made up of morons.

So true, Gindy.

Felis, oh you know it!

I'm with you, AOW.

IW, I'm with you too!

SA, neato! I will definitely check it out!!

Beak, sure seems that way.

AC, feel free to go off-topic anytime! You are on target. It's sheer lunacy. But of course they think Israeli's are morons. After all, what more can you expect from people who are descended from monkeys and dogs?

Why do people even expect "normal" behavior from them? They are terrorists, blood-sucking terrorists.
