The biggest welfare scam in history.
Since 1993, the world has been the victim of the biggest welfare scam in history.
I'm referring specifically to the Arab League's and Gamal Nasser's creation of of a "Palestinian" Arab nationality to justify the unremitting attacks on the Jewish state of Israel. Billions of dollars in aid money have been given to the "Palestinians; yet, they are still dispossessed and poor, or so they say, and victims of the "greatest genocide" in history by the Jews of Israel. You hear this constantly in America on college campuses,
More welfare money is always needed by the leadership that spends it on themselves.
and now even in mainstream media, particularly by those lovely folks in the International Solidarity Movement, a gang the Israeli government somehow can't stop within its own borders.
Most Israelis know about the "festering wound" of Arabs who were displaced by the War of Independence in 1948. Many were put into refugee camps after the war by other Arabs to sit until the Jews would be driven into the sea at a later date. Others among the Arabs made lives for themselves, but still claimed they were "refugees," and, by 1964, the official front of the PLO was organized under the Egyptian Yasser Arafat.
Arafat was a whiz at Palestinian math. He got all the Arab League to give separate passports to "Palestinians" and to not let them assimilate. For good measure, he got them to make every "Palestinian" tithe to Arafat's PLO. After all, when Palestinian mathematics makes numbers appear and disappear at random, more welfare money is always needed by the leadership that spends it on themselves.
And organize he did, creating liaisons with the Soviet Union's KGB and training worldwide terrorists, which also brought in money. UN and American foreign aid money that came in was invested wisely and developed into what British intelligence has claimed is a daily profit margin of $5 million (US) per day, even today. At the height of the Oslo Peace Process, the PLO was getting $155 million dollars a month from the US, the UN, the EU and the Arab League, not to mention private NGO funding, for the 3.2 million Arabs who lived in the West Bank and Gaza. But by Palestinian mathematics, that wasn't enough to create a country. Nope, not nearly enough.
Palestinian Arabs have their own unique sense of mathematics. It isn't limited to just how much money they actually have to make peace and feed their people, it's also based on their need to complain about how they are suffering to keep the welfare scam going.
Oh, yes, and they need more money to buy more guns and other weapons.
Dennis Ross, who negotiated at Oslo for the US with the Palestinian leadership, once picked up a flier handed out by "Palestinians" and members of the ISM at UC Berkeley that said Ehud Barak only offered 93% of the West Bank and Gaza and that Arafat had to walk away. Ross explained they were offered 100% of the territory discussed, 97% outright, and 3% in a land swap to guarantee Israel's security. Today, if you look at maps distributed by the "Palestinian-led" ISM on US campuses and in US churches, the Israelis have really offered only 34% of Judea and Samaria and the Palestinians don't even count Gaza. You see, they say it's still occupied because the Israelis control the borders to prevent the importation of those guns.
Those poor, poor Palestinians just have problems with math - except when it comes to stealing money. Suha Arafat had a great grasp of math when Abu Ammar succumbed to AIDS. And we of the world should all take comfort that our tax dollars and foreign aid money was well used by the Palestinians after his death.
But you know, somehow it's never enough according to Palestinian math. Hamas, since taking over the Palestinian Authority, was receiving more foreign aid to the PA then ever

before, but they screamed they had none. Abbas needed 86 million dollars for guns because, according to Palestinian math, he had only five bullets per terrorist (in that case, Israel met his needs without questioning his math, as did President George Bush, who also has trouble with math).
Census totals by the PA itself revealed they were wrong about the actual numbers of Palestinian Arabs in the territories anyway, and that the number may have been one million over the mark to request additional aid money. Go on the Internet and read how there are four million... no wait, five million... no wait, seven million... no wait, 10 million Palestinians... no wait, 11 million Palestinian refugees worldwide who must be allowed unconditionally to return to their "homes" in what was once "Palestine (but is now Israel).
Pay up with those welfare payments or we'll kill you, too, is an absolute theory in Palestinian math.
Of course, the normal Malthusian paradigm of increasing populations in the world can be easily disproven by Palestinian math, even in the Palestinian Authority. As the Palestinians undergo "genocide" by the Israelis, somehow their population only increases, while the population of Israel decreases slightly or remains steady. Even if the population density of Gaza is no worse than that of San Francisco, world-renowned Palestinian leaders like Saeb Erekat can claim that Gaza has "the most crowded living conditions in the entire world."
Poor Saeb, a victim of Palestinian math, no longer appears on national US television after he mathematically explained that the town Jenin stood no more and its people wiped from the map by the IDF. It seems only 58 Arabs were killed, among them 48 armed terrorists, along with 23 Israeli soldiers. Erekat's niece, Noura, has taken over with Palestinian math as an aid to Dennis Kucinich in Congress.
But the best example of Palestinian math is the Palestinians unswerving claim to all the land of Israel. Visit the website www.palestineremembered.com, where you can see a prime example of Palestinian math at its best. Take, for example, the Israeli community of Kiryat-Gat in the Negev. Allegedly, by Palestinian mathematics standards, there were 5,400 Arabs who lived in the same spot in 1948 and that it was called Al-Faluja. But Palestinian math now claims there are 33,000 Palestinian refugees from that village who must return. And that's only one village, mind you.
Maybe we Americans should start grabbing up property and land in Europe and Asia,
The only math worse than Palestinian math is US and Israeli math.
because many of us were driven out of those locales, too, due to wars. There are over 220 million of us today who should have the non-negotiable right to return. Think about it, we could take Paris, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo, and the UN might even help us and give us all that aid money while we work on the scheme. Maybe there is something to Palestinian math....
The only math worse than Palestinian math is US and Israeli math. In the US, we can't figure out that by funding the Arabs with more dollars they will use them against us one day, so we keep throwing greater numbers at them. Israeli math is even worse, since we can't figure out that each time a Jew is murdered as part of the result of Palestinian math, it results in a subtraction of the Jewish population worldwide. Israeli math only understands diminishing returns, whereas Palestinian math only allows for growth at the expense of Israeli mathematic paradigms.
It all just doesn't add up, does it?
Perfectly reasonable results in 60 years with a high birth rate.
And a low infant mortality rate. And no war. And good living conditions and decent healthcare. But the Palestinians have NONE of these. Remember? They're oppressed.
Secondly, what you term as "perfectly reasonable" would have to assume a population growth of almost 4% per year (worldwide population growth was 2% in the 1960s, has currently slowed to estimates of 1.5% and might reach 1% by 2015). And now it starts to look perfectly unreasonable. Especially if we are to believe these are an oppressed people with all sorts of problems that they face every day outside the norm of the rest of the world.
It is widely reported that there were 700,000 Palestinian refugees in 1948 and over 4M today.
That’s an increase of 6x during the period.
5,400 inhabitants of Al-Faluja in 1948 x 6 = 32,400 or slightly less than the 33,000 they claim.
In addition, it is remarkably silly to look at worldwide population growth today and apply it to Palestinians over the last 60 years. They have had a much higher birth rate than the world average throughout this period. Although it is has dropped recently, it is still estimated to be about 3% annually.
They blow up so fast...
Thats an increase of 6x during the period.
5,400 inhabitants of Al-Faluja in 1948 x 6 = 32,400 or slightly less than the 33,000 they claim.
So, if it's 3% then you arrive at significantly less than the 33000 they claim. Of course, to take the 6X growth of Palestinian refugees at face value is very um...er...charitable of you. The Palestinians are a political football for the Arab states. They don't want to care for them. They don't want to take them in. They want to use them for capital. One might think it's working with you.
The infant mortality rate among Palestinans is presently about 18 per 1000, just about what it was in the US in 1973.
Yup. That's about right as the US of A was suffering through its own genocide in 73.
Are you asserting that Palestinian healthcare is equal to ours of the '70s? And if so, is that good evidence of an oppressed Palestinian state?
I am agnostic as to whether the reported number of Palestinian refugees, either in 1948 or today, is accurate.
I notice you have posted no actual numbers yourself, just claimed that the numbers in the article are inaccurate.
As I pointed out, Palestinian birth rates have recently dropped significantly. They were much higher over most of the past 60 years.
What US genocide in 1973?
“Palestine” is not about Islam. It’s all about the money.
