Palestinian Authority Requests $5.8 Billion in Aid Through 2010

Anne Lieberman at Boker Tov Boulder adds up the tote for the post-Oslo Palestinianthon. In passing she notes how PA leader Muhammed Dahlan recently admitted that of some $10 Billion Dollars of international aid received by the Palestinians since the 1993 Olso Accords, about $5 Billion Dollars has untraceably disappeared. Caroline Glick, quoted by Ms. Lieberman, has written:

"Since its establishment in 1994, the PA has received more aid per capita than any other group of people in the world has ever received - more than the victims of genocide in Sudan or Rwanda, more that the victims of the tsunami in Asia, more than the Iraqis or the Afghans - more than anyone."
