the only reason Israel’s economy exists is because of American aid (Taki)American generosity towards Israel is important and it is welcome with thanks. But Israelis are working very hard to make a living. Does Taki know that Israelis are Number Two in hours worked by person? There is only one people who work more hours than us, the South Koreans. Israel has a strong export economy. Taki is wrong, malignantly wrong. In fact, Taki is right but mixed up Palestinians and Israelis. The 5 million Palestinian nation produces nothing and are living mostly from US food aid (pic) and UNRWA United NAtions Refugee Assistance - since 1948 (sixty one years of living off foreign generosity). Each Palestinian born receives an UNRWA Refugee Card - even if he/she is sixth generation removed from the original refugee. The Card entitles him to be feed all his life, to receive education and housing, and so on. Enormous "camps" house the descendants of the 1948 refugees, all maintained by the UNRWA, that is, the American taxpayer. Since no one is protesting, America is slated to keep maintaining these parasitic exploding refugee populations forever.
I travel much in Samaria and each Palestinian village I see many large USAID signs: here a school, there a village water supply system, all paid by the American taxpayer. All the wastewater treatment plants of Samaria and Judea were built by the German and Nordic Foreign Aid. Unfortunately, none is being maintained and operated. Rich Saudis also build much in the Palestinian Areas: hundreds of magnificent mosques with tall minarets, and madrassas, religious high schools.
