'Palestinians' doing well under Netanyahu

In American politics, we are always told that "it's the economy, stupid." Elections are decided based on the economy, with voters answering the question, "am I better off than I was x years ago?" If that were the basis for 'Palestinian' voting, they would have to be pleased with the results that the Netanyahu government has achieved.
Economic growth in Judea and Samaria jumped 7 percent this year, the International Monetary Fund said in a recent report. Arab building in Yesha is also reportedly undergoing a boom. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said he is focusing on boosting the economy of Yesha Arabs.

Previously, the World Bank, had said the local Arab economy had contracted by 13 percent in the eight years between 2000 and 2008.
Hmmm. Give them a state and that economic growth will come to an end.

The Palestinians should want Israel to annex them rather than creating duplicative bureaucracies, institutions, etc. If they could see past their Jew hatred, they would find cooperation with Israel would give them both a better life and more freedom. Perhaps that's why their rulers want to make sure that prospect never happens.
