Human rights activist: The Palestinian Authority has been given enough money to equal 15 Marshall Plans -- with nothing to show for it

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent
 

Over the last 20 years, various countries, including Canada, have invested over US$30B in the emerging Palestinian state, with little to show for it. Calev Myers of the Jerusalem Institute of Justice explains why.

"The international community made a terrible mistake in 1994," Myers says.

"In order to push for two states for two peoples, they recognized Yassir Arafat as the legitimate leader of the Palestinian people and helped him create the Palestinian Authority."

Before Arafat came to power, much of the money for Palestinian health care and education came from private NGOs.

But starting in 1994, he asked international governments to give him the money directly to build infrastructure.

Instead he shut down clinics and left building projects abandoned.

The money disappeared. Where did it go?

Besides ending up in Palestinian leaders' bank accounts, Meyers says it is also given to Palestinians "sitting in Israeli prisons for carrying out violent crimes against Israelis."

These terrorists are even paid on a sliding scale depending on how brutal the crime was.

So what is the solution? Myers offers some suggestions for change.

He forgot to mention all of the underground tunnels leading into Israel from the Palestinian territory. They were also paid for by international relief payments. Time to cut off the funding for the Palestinians.

forensic auditing …. imagine if this was done everywhere, the only people that would be found innocent are those that pay taxes, not those receiving or giving it…

We all knew this was happening but still, the figures are shocking. As is our tolerance of such abuses.

Giving money to foreign governments is stupid. If they can’t make it on their own, let them all die… problem solved !

From what I have learned in my Economics 101 class, apparently free trade helps economies.
Given the restrictions at the borders in Palestine, I would expect this to have had a significant impact. Unless, we don’t believe in free trade being good for an economy. Also, bombs and incursions probably don’t help either.

Absolutely right Dale. This leftist and Islamist alliance is something to behold isn’t it.

When ole Arafat died he had over 3 BILLION in his personal bank account . . . a hard worker and saver?
contrast that with the crazies on the left railing about a CEO making a million a year.
Then there was ole Chauvez . . . the socialist killed by Cuban Healthcare . . . he had a couple of Billion as the folks in Venezuela lined up for groceries.
When is the Postal Union going to comment on their fellow travellers?

You would think at least one western bureaucrat in charge of administering the aid to the Palestinians would incorporate some sort of mechanism around transparency and accountability and with some sort of sanction related to misuse of funds. That’s government and bureaucracy for you. I mean governments really do suck at almost everything they do.

$30B dollars…hmmm.

How about a global search for “arafat” and “yassir” for the last 30 years for all Swiss bank accounts?

Bet you find your $30B very quickly.

What?
They’ve built miles of tunnels.

Assad is building a new 13million dollar mansion, drives a Benz so we know where some of it is going. Anyone stupid enough to to give. Money to Pals deserves to lose it.
Hamas has stolen money for years in Gaza.

I suspect a lot of that money went to western pro-palistinian lobbying efforts
