'Palestinians' seethe: Israeli companies win contracts to reconstruct Gaza

The 'Palestinians' are seething. The United Nations put out contracts to bid to reconstruct Gaza, and the contracts were won by Israeli companies.
More than three years after Israel inflicted widespread damage on the infrastructure of the Gaza Strip during Operation Cast Lead, an offensive aimed at curtailing relentless Hamas rocket fire into Israel, two Israeli companies won bids issued by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to construct water plants in Gaza, London-based daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported Thursday.

Osama Kahil, deputy head of the Palestinian Contractors Union, told the daily that a number of Israeli companies have contacted contractors in Gaza offering them half of the bids’ revenue to execute the projects.

“It is unreasonable for the Israeli occupation to be rewarded for its destruction of Gaza’s economy,” Kahil told Al-Quds Al-Arabi. “It waged a relentless war on our livelihood, and now our markets are being opened to its companies.”

Kahil said his union sent letters to all contractors in Gaza, warning them against cooperation with Israeli companies.

“A sense of morality and patriotism will not allow anyone to cross these red lines,” he said. The Palestinian Engineers Association also declared that it would “legally and nationally pursue” members who work with Israel.
So who tells them to bid unrealistic prices? Heh.

Well, fine, then. Angry at all the huge graft and theft opportunities are lost, are they? Cancel the reconstruction projects and let the Gazans wallow in their own squalor and self-pity.
