So the Palestinians have duped the West into believing that the Arab population in both the West Bank and Gaza, are greater than what they actually are. That would be a startling admission if not for the fact that the Palestinians have been duping the international community for decades, this is just one more example of their dishonesty and contempt towards those who have been supporting them over the last 50 years.
“Congress today will be presented with a new study that documents the Palestinians have inflated their population numbers by over 50 percent and that almost $3 billion in United States taxpayer funds may have been provided as aid to the Palestinians in part based on fraudulent data. “American tax dollars and other international humanitarian aid have been based on inflated population numbers which have been accepted without question by governments and aid agencies. Our researchers pointed out that money has been spent to help Palestinians who were double-counted, never born or not present in the West Bank and Gaza,” Bennet Zimmerman, head of the new study, titled “Arab Population in the West Bank and Gaza,” told WND.”
We now have a situation in the Disputed Territories, where a terrorist government is in control in spite of the fact that the Oslo accords forbids the participation of any party that refuses to recognize the state of Israel. Hamas should never have been allowed to become a part of the democratic process. This however, was a case of the Quartet duping the Israelis into believing that a signed agreement would be faithfully adhered to, and not abandoned for political expediency.
Most importantly, the population deception by the Arabs should be seen as a slap in the face by the world’s governments, and should serve as a reminder the need to hold the Palestinians and their government accountable for their actions. Enough is enough. KGS
