They both can't wait to get back to visit Israel and want my wife and I to go with them. Neither wants to step foot in Egypt ever again. My younger daughter actually cried upon landing in Boston after flying home from Egypt - she was so glad to be back in the US.
As my Army daughter says, the Egyptians have had Egypt for over three thousand five hundred years and it is a smelly shithole. The Israelis have had Israel for sixty years and it is a garden.
Helen Thomas obviously wants Palestine to remain a rat infested shithole because wherever the Jews land, things flourish. Wherever Palestinians go, a shithole emerges surrounded by eruptions of death and violence.
For a more graphic comparison, look at the Google image below of southern Israel and the Gaza Strip. Guess which side is Gaza.
The blue area is obviously the Mediterrean Sea. The green rectangles and circles are in Israel. You see the same land formations while flying over America's Mid West. These are farms.
The sandy gray rubble is Gaza. The US pours almost a half billion dollars a year into Gaza and the West Bank. Other nations pour additional hundreds of millions of dollars.
Since the signing of the Oslo Accord in 1993 and the establishment of limited Palestinian self rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1994, the U.S. government has committed over $3.5 billion in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians. Since the death of Yasser Arafat in November 2004, U.S. assistance to the Palestinians has been averaging about $400 million a year.
During the 1990s, U.S. foreign aid to the Palestinians averaged approximately $75 million per year. Despite more robust levels of assistance this decade, Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Hamas’s heightened role in Palestinian politics have made it more difficult to implement effective and lasting aid projects that serve U.S. interests.
Palestinian leaders basically steal this money and use it to stay in power. Arafat had over a hundred million dollars in his private bank accounts - that is the reason for all the confusion surrounding his death: his wife and other arab ghouls were fighting over the cash.
And you wonder how they afford all those thousands of rockets they fire at the Israelis?
I guess Helen Thomas hates green.
