Two failed statesI mean any comparison between Iraq and "Palestine" is so absurd that I feel slightly embarrassed by commenting on it, but is it REALLY too difficult for this terrorist supporter and his accomplices to understand that the Palestinian Arabs ELECTED the terrorist scum and therefore fully deserve what they get (or rather: not get) whereas the Iraqis did NOT elect Saddam?
The financial and political siege of the Palestinian Authority is supposed to harm only Hamas. But in Palestine, as in Iraq, it is ordinary people who suffer.

"A massive fiscal squeeze on the Hamas-led government has led to warnings that the Palestinian people could become residents of a failed state even before they achieve independence," says an Agence France Presse report this morning.
The EU and US claim that their financial and political siege of the Palestinian Authority is supposed to harm only Hamas and spare the people. We have heard this sort of thing before. The UN sanctions that led to the deaths of a million Iraqis through the 1990s were also supposed to harm only the government. But in Palestine, as in Iraq, it is ordinary people who suffer. The report goes on to note that:
"Teachers have begun to stay away from school. Hospitals have reported that nurses have been also been absent. Masked gunmen frequently storm public buildings to protest against non-payment of salaries. The extent of the crisis was underlined in new UN report into the impact of a freeze in direct US aid and EU receipts of 607 million dollars a year, which said the Palestinian Authority could end up a 'failed state'."

Of course it is an entirely different topic and I'm not going to whine about the criminal idiocy of the Western states not to remove Bubba Saddam earlier, not to mention those (my own one included) who actively supported him. But "Palestine"? It sooo easy, isn't it? Stop killing Jews, start behaving like civilised human beings and the money will flow. (Not that you deserve it!)
Yes it IS that easy!
