John Kerry To Prop Up Palestinians With $4 Billion Of US Taxpayer Money
John Kerry has been busy. Speaking at the 2013 World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa held in Jordan, Secretary of State Kerry unveiled a plan to boost the Palestinian economy. The plan involves $4 BILLION in new funding and would seem to carry the endorsement of many foreign leaders.
The idea is that this brilliant plan will buy peace in the Middle East, or at least part of it. Here is an excerpt from Secretary of State John Kerry’s address at the latest World Economic Forum on Sunday:
This group includes leaders of some of the world’s largest corporations, I’m pleased to say. It includes renowned investors and some of the most brilliant business analysts out there – and some of the most committed. One of these senior business leaders actually just celebrated his 69th birthday in Jerusalem at the Colony Hotel after spending a 14-hour day in the West Bank trying to figure it out.
When others ask them, all of them, why they’re here, doing this on their own time, the unanimous answer is: “Because we want a better future for both Israeli children and Palestinian children.”
Their plan begins with encouraging local, regional and international business leaders to, and to encourage government leaders in various parts of the world. I raised this issue with the President of China, with the Prime Minister of Japan, with all of our European leaders, and everywhere – with the Brazilian Foreign Minister a few days ago, with the New Zealand Foreign Minister. All of them have on the tip of their tongues the idea that we can make peace in the Middle East and need to, and all of them are committed to be part of this effort in order to change life on the ground.
The fact is that we are looking to mobilize some $4 billion of investment. And this team of experts – private citizens, donating their time – are here right now. They’re analyzing the opportunities in tourism, construction, light manufacturing, building materials, energy, agriculture, and information and communications technology.
This group will make recommendations to the Palestinians. They’re not going to decide anything. The Palestinians will decide that in their normal course of governance. But they will analyze and make recommendations on a set of choices that can dramatically lift the economy.
The preliminary results already reported to me by Prime Minister Blair and by the folks working with him are stunning: These experts believe that we can increase the Palestinian GDP by as much as 50 percent over three years. Their most optimistic estimates foresee enough new jobs to cut unemployment by nearly two-thirds – to 8 percent, down from 21 percent today – and to increase the median annual wage along with it, by as much as 40 percent.”
If John Kerry were sincere about wanting a better future for all children, perhaps he should stop arming Palestinian terrorists and demand that Palestinian schools not teach hatred. Maybe encouraging the Palestinians not to locate active military units among the civilian population and fire rockets from positions next to hospitals, schools, and Mosques – hoping for collateral damage that can be used for propaganda.
Bottom line …
Notice that the politicians on both sides of the aisle have kept us energy dependent on the Middle East forever. And, that only by becoming energy independent can we tell these Muslim terrorists to kill each other and leave us in relative peace.
No amount of money can buy Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize to secure his legacy. When the terrorists are finished killing the infidels, they will turn on themselves – as they have done since the twelfth century.
