Uncle Sam to give Israeli settler families 1 mil each to relocate
Jane S. | 14.07.2005 08:22
I read in the papers today that Ariel Sharon has just asked the United States for an extra ,200,000,000.00 to cover the cost of relocating Israeli "settlers" away from the Gaza Strip.
Okay. I got out my calculator.
If the U.S. gives Sharon 2.5 billion dollars to help move 9,100 settlers, that's 1,758.24 each! For a family of four, that's 7,032.96 per family. How come we aren't giving almost one million US dollars per family to the poor displaced settlers in Rwanda? In Columbia? In Haiti? In Darfur? Or in Iraq?
And what about the people in New London, Connecticut that the Supreme Court recently kicked out of THEIR homes? Are they getting one mil per family too?
And what about me? Give me 1,758.24 for every member of my family and we will settle anywhere! But preferably in a condo on the Riviera.
PS: My friend Rich just pointed out, "Maybe because leaving Gaza was part of Bush's road map, he promised to pay for the withdrawal." But the BBC says that Sharon is requesting 2.2 billion dollars EXTRA. What does that mean? That the settlers are getting MORE than one million dollars per family? That I should ask for a condo on the Riviera AND a condo in Hawaii too? Help me out here. I'm confused.
PPS: If it only costs -- let's say -- ,000 per settler to move them, does Sharon get to pocket the rest?

do the math
nothing is cheap these days. Also the israeli govt have to pay for the demolition of and removal of rubble from the current homes. It should be noted that this is at the request of the palistinian authorities.
...because these people are Americans anyway.

The request is 'extra' because the US gives Israel bn a year anyway, although this was increased to bn for 2001, to help them 'fight terror'( how does one fight onself, I wonder?).
We in britain continue to support apartheid Israel in other, less obvious ways -
Fr'instance, who knew that the Met buy their ammo from Israel?
Pentos, you support israel you spoon. The technology on your computer was no doubt engineered in Israel and when you get old and frail and diagnosed with some unfortuntate disease the cure will no doubt have been researched in Israel.............better switch your computer off and make a note to your doctors.....
This will probably we deleted by the mods but...............
..................the Palestinians are recieving £2billion from the G8 thats a hell of a lot more money than the average Rwandan will recieve.
