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