Richard Baehr on the aid to the PA

5. 7.4 billion promised in aid to the Palestinians in one day. That even beats Ron Paul's one day haul. A few things we know about these pledges and how the money will be used: the Arab countries will not send the cash, and nothing will change within the PA. This is welfare, pure and simple. When the UNWRA counts 20 million Palestinians as refugees in 50 years, the bureaucracy will be many times bigger, and there will still be millions in camps.
