JERUSALEM, Feb. 13 — The United States and Israel are discussing ways to destabilize the Palestinian government so that newly elected Hamas officials will fail and elections will be called again, according to Israeli officials and Western diplomats.
The intention is to starve the Palestinian Authority of money and international connections to the point where, some months from now, its president, Mahmoud Abbas, is compelled to call a new election. The hope is that Palestinians will be so unhappy with life under Hamas that they will return to office a reformed and chastened Fatah movement.
Here's an idea.. let's starve the people to the point where they get so desperate they will have no other choice but to see our side of things. now that's affective foreign policy. What do you think Condi? it's worked great in other areas of the Middle East.
sounds good to me Mr. President. Once the Palestinians haven't eaten in a couple of months they will surely call for a new election that we will no doubt be able to influence this time.. i don't know how that last one got away from us. can you pass the popcorn?
uhhh...... Why do you think young men join terrorist organizations in the first place? Here's a guess, they are starving, desperate and pissed off at Christians and Jews...
