Ban Ki-Moon's numbers game

At the World Economic Conference in Davos, Switzerland today, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon appealed for $613 million in 'emergency economic aid' for the 'Palestinians' in Gaza, over and above the billions of dollars in 'economic aid' they have already been promised this year.
The money we are asking for will provide basic lifesaving aid: food, water, sanitation, health care and shelter, Mr Ban said in Davos, Switzerland, according to a transcript of his remarks.

It will help to remove the debris of war, including unexploded ordnance. It will finance emergency repairs for basic infrastructure and provide psychological help for the victims.

The appeal is based on the report by a UN assessment team Mr Ban sent to Gaza after his own visit on January 20th. The money is intended to meet the immediate needs of the Palestinians for up to nine months, the UN said.
Of course, that's not enough money for the 'Palestinians.' Never is and never will be.
The Palestinian delegation at the Arab League summit on January 19th asked for as much as $2 billion, including $500 million in emergency medical aid and equipment.

Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah pledged $1 billion at the conference while Qatar offered $250 million at a separate Arab meeting in Doha.
But Ki-Moon is much smarter than the 'Palestinians.' You see the number 613 is a very special number in Judaism.

Carl - with all the tragedies and suffering people in this world, what is it about the Palestinians they deserve help above and beyond all the others? Clue me in please, for I haven't see one good reason why they are worthy of all this munificence showered upon them!
