  • Palestinians “Not Willing to Give Up Their Misery,” Israeli Historian Says
    The Palestinian leadership should sign on to the U.S. economic development plan and worry about their political status later, Hebrew University of Jerusalem historian Gadi Taub told France 24. Palestinians are wrong to reject the $50 billion U.S. blueprint to rebuild the Palestinian economy. “This is five times more than what it took to reconstruct Japan after World War II,” he said. “If they stop sinking money into terror tunnels and corruption, they can have Singapore in Gaza.”
    “I think the one asset the Palestinians are not willing to give up is their misery. They have a leadership that is keeping them at a state of perpetual victimhood….If it was Zionism, we would have taken the money, built stuff with it, and then tried to move on to other goals, not give it up in advance.”  (France 24)
