Why the Palestinian Authority is Failing

If you ever wonder why the PA is now pushing Statehood and essentially causing all sorts of trouble, you need look no further than this Bloomberg news story:

…Last week, both the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank identified the authority’s financial crisis as a danger to the state-building program which Fayyad’s administration has led over the last two years.

In the last three months, the authority has twice failed to pay salaries to its 150,000 employees on time  and in full.

The success of the state-building plan was one of the reasons cited by Palestinian officials for their decision to go to the United Nations, despite U.S. and Israeli opposition…

The story, itself, is about how Saudi Arabia is pledging $200 million to the PA – missed in the story, because it is an MSM report, is the real issue:  the Palestinian Authority has 150,000 employees.  There are 4,000,000 or so Palestinians…to put it in to American terms, this is the equivalent of us having 11,250,000 federal government employees; right now, there are about 3,000,000 federal employees.  Even if you add in the military, you get nowhere near the proportion of government employees to population of the PA.

What this tells us is that the PA is nothing more than a con job…a way for corrupt oligarchs and appartchiks to latch themselves upon a population and live well.  All that talk of Palestinian Statehood?  All the rancor and blood and gore and mess?  Nothing but a means to an end – and the end is a bunch of people who don’t do a lick of work getting fat off of others.  I’m deadly serious here…we are not faced with a movement of national liberation, but by a group of thugs who want money they didn’t earn.

The main thing to remember about the state of the world today is that in all lands there are people who have figured out how to gain un-earned wealth.  Our liberals think in terms of rich people like corporate CEOs and the like…and they actually do have a bit of a case, but they blow it by not realizing that the corporate CEOs are only a tiny number, at most, of all those living off those who produce wealth.  Here’s a small list of those living off the work of others:

Activists of various stripes (some call them “community organizers”, race-baiting grievance-mongers, Wall Street gamblers (as opposed to actual investors), college professors who let others teach their classes, union bosses, trial lawyers, education administrators, most welfare recipients, layers of corporate and bureaucratic paper pushers who do nothing to help an actual person, most of the people manning NGOs, departments of higher education which don’t produce things like doctors and engineers, probably well more than half the people on disability…and a host of dictators and hangers-on around the world which have fastened themselves on various populations.  They don’t work; they don’t earn their positions (gaining them by favor or by blood); they don’t do anything worthwhile for the whole, human race…but they live well; always vastly better than the general run of the population they live amongst.  The Palestinian Authority is just another one of the scams…a put on using the words of liberation and nationhood to sucker fools in to handing them money and power…and using theft and murder to maintain themselves and gain more.

It is high time we stopped falling for this nonsense…the Palestinians could have State-hood next week with generously drawn borders and massive amounts of financial aid to build their economy…but as long as the Palestinian leadership is made up of thieves, murderers and con-artists, we’ll get nowhere.  They don’t want a functioning State for the Palestinian people to live and build in…if that started up, there’d be no place for the current leadership.  So, they’ll just keep up the wickedness (and why not?  It got their leader a Nobel Prize and themselves well paid sinecures in government) and hope that we keep being suckers, forever.  Same thing with all the other people causing mayhem, misery and murder around the world…they are just after personal power and wealth that they cannot earn in a free society by offering something useful to their fellow citizens.  The sooner we wake up to what they are and start laying stripes on their backs, the quicker we can have peace.

And then we can turn to the con artists in our own land…no need to be quite that harsh as they haven’t actually murdered anyone…but it is high time we stopped kowtowing to their pretensions and their whines and started demanding they pull their weight.  The world will always be a place of sorrow and trial…but no need for us to make it worse by allowing others to take advantage of us.

        Iranian Ambassador: U.N. Vote On Palestinian Statehood Is a ‘Step Towards Wiping Out Israel’

        “The Palestinians must…prevent the Zionist Entity from depriving them their rights.”

    ” At the Bureau’s training ground in Quantico, Virginia, agents are shown a chart contending that the more ‘devout’ a Muslim, the more likely he is to be ‘violent.’ Those destructive tendencies cannot be reversed, an FBI instructional presentation adds: ‘Any war against non-believers is justified’ under Muslim law; a ‘moderating process cannot happen if the Koran continues to be regarded as the unalterable word of Allah.’” ”

    the PA is a creation of devout muslims trying to follow the koran…empowering them would do nothing but increase the violence…besides…a nation on welfare is not likely to become independent…

    if they dont have a means of support what makes anyone think they should become a nation of thier own….that would contradict common sense and that is why they go to the UN…because the UN actually has no clue about what is right or wrong…its an emotional hotbed of politically correctness being used to exploit the very power the we have placed under the UNs stewartship

    “missed in the story, because it is an MSM report, is the real issue . . .” Mark Edward Noonan

    Just for clarification, exactly what does MSM mean? Does this include FOX NEWS, the WSP and Washington Journal and radio talk shows? If these forms of media are not MSM, what are they?

    • Luckee September 20, 2011 / 11:07 am

      Sunny, most people know that MSM means Mainstream Media or the traditional news sources. ABC, CBS, NBC, the NYT, LA Times, etc. Then we started to get cable news programs like CNN, MSNBC and Fox. I understand that cable networks are not included in MSM. Ithink it has to do with where most people get their news and not many get their news from cable stations. I do not think of any cable network as MSM but I do think Time Magazine is, and Newsweek, and the old networks.

      I don’t think radio talk shows qualify as this is a pretty new phenomenon, I am not sure if they are considered Alternative Media or if that is just internet.

      Luckee pretty much got it – the MSM is the “old media”…what was dominant from time immemorial until the rise of cable news, talk radio and the internet.

      its boiling down to professional reputation…the term “MSM” is getting to be a slur more or less…its the part of the media that has been heavily influenced by government and wealth…

      you find it everywhere where they consistently omit facts…instead of giving both sides of the story in full…they spin liberal poppycock and omit to include any explanation of opposing viewpoints…resulting in a bias that affects the readers opinions…

      they should actually remove all immunities to those libtard wanna be journalists…if they cant provide a professional service…they should not have the immunities that professional journalists enjoy under our constitution…
