Ready for 'statehood'?

You will recall that about ten weeks ago, the World Bank told us that the 'Palestinian Authority' is not ready for 'statehood,' while the International Monetary Fund told us that the 'Palestinian Authority' was ready. The International Monetary Fund may want to rethink that issue. If 'Palestine' were to become a state tomorrow, it would have no economy, and would be totally dependent upon the generosity of the nations of the World. Most of the World has apparently tired of financially supporting the 'Palestinians' with handouts.
The Palestinian Authority is facing a financial crisis because funds pledged by donor nations are not arriving on time, Prime Minister of the West Bank government Salam Fayyad said Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference with Japan's representative to the Palestinian Authority, Fayyad said the slow delivery of promised aid was putting pressure on the government.

"The financial crisis continues until now, to varying degrees, and has continued alongside the work of the Palestinian Authority since mid-2010," Fayyad warned, saying the government was facing a serious shortfall.

"We need to see an acceleration in the receipt of aid that has been committed," he added, stressing that the Palestinians "are not asking for anything more than what we need."
Maybe Fayyad needs to stop the unproductive payments to terrorists in Israeli jails and consider building an economy that can sustain itself. Of course, since Fayyad is about to be fired anyway, he may not be very interested in building an economy for the long term, and his successor will be even less likely of being capable of doing so.

What could go wrong?

The bitter joke is the anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic meme promoted by the Palestinians and prevalent in the west that Israel is some hand with cup out beggar state dependency and "Palestine" some hallowed state from times immemorial.

The Palestinians lack a recognized government, full control over their territory and true independence. But I suspect that won't matter.

The world wants to stick it to the Jews.

What could go wrong indeed
