Canada is Right to Suspend All Assistance to the Palestinian Authority
By David Holcberg (Jerusalem Post, March 27, 2006; Daily Kansan, April 3, 2006)
Canada is right to suspend all assistance to the Palestinian Authority. It should have done so long ago. And so should the United States.
Through the years, Western governments have given billions of dollars to the Palestinians. This drain on Western wealth has been used to promote anti-Semitism in Palestinian schools, mosques and media--and to finance suicide bombings in Israeli streets, restaurants and malls.
The election of Hamas--an Islamic terrorist group committed to the destruction of Israel--demonstrates that not only the Palestinian leadership, but also the overwhelming majority of Palestinians deserve no aid. What they deserve is to suffer the consequences of electing terrorists to rule them.
