We can't let the Palestinians pay the consequences of electing a terrorist government.
The European Union is to lead international efforts to restore the flow of foreign aid to the Palestinian people. The plan, decided on at a meeting in New York of the so-called Quartet of Middle East peace brokers - the EU, US, Russia and the UN - aims to bypass the Hamas-led government.Of course they won't pay money direct to Hamas, but will that make a difference?
- All staff that they pay, will sooner or later be Hamas supporters. Hams will sack exisiting staff and push in their friends. Thats how things are done in such countries.
- The small amount of money that they raise themselves will be easier to spend where they like, if we pay some of their bills.
- Palestinians will feel free to vote for such nasty parties, secure in the knowledge that we will continue to pay the bills.
