Ruthie Blum, who has been putting out some great stuff, has an article in yesterday’s JPost, “Israel and the UN-PA complicity.”:
In it, she writes about the statement by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon regarding the imperative to “strengthen Palestinian institutions, economic and security prospects.”
Responds Blum, “So many billions of dollars, euros and shekels have been spent on this endeavor that everyone has lost count by now. Yet nothing has changed other than the methods employed by Arafat’s successor, PA President (sic) Mahmoud Abbas to remain at the helm, while working towards the destruction of the Jewish state through a war of attrition in the street and international arenas.” (Emphasis added)
Please see her article in full for examples of how the PA functions, as provided by a new MEMRI report on “Incitement to Terrorism by Palestinian Civil Society Organizations that Receive Foreign Funding.” Among the organizations named are the Palestinian Bar Association, the Popular Art Centre, and the Shabab Al-Balad Youth Forum.
