I Did the Math

22 08 2013

Sub AD 120912_PA-Answer-To-Peace-Offers-Billboard_7_2012Several Palestinian news stories intersected for me yesterday. First, I read a story on Israel National News about the Palestinian Authority: Jailed PA Murderers Make $3,400 a Month. Terrorists in Israeli prison receive twice or three times the salary of normal PA government workers.

Then, I saw another story on the same site: U.S. Giving PA $148M. The article suggests that it was the price the US paid to get the Palestinians to show up at the peace talks.  The astounding last line of the short report shocked me. “Since 1994, the year that followed the signing of the Oslo accords that created the PA, the Authority has received about $4.3 billion.”

So I wondered how many Palestinians live under the PA West Bank government. I did a simple search and found this article at the site of another Israeli paper, Haaretz. How many Palestinians actually live in the West Bank? The story quotes two sources of population estimates. The PA count is about 2.5 million, but a more realistic count is a million less, at 1.5 million.

The American-Israel Demographic Research Group has been trying for eight years to prove that the Palestinians have managed, with great sophistication, to inflate their true population by 1 million people, and that the real figure currently stands at about 1.5 million people.

(UPDATE August 23 – The numbers in the next paragraph were wrong. The corrected numbers are in red. Please forgive my poor math.)

Let’s do the math using a mid-range of 2 million Palestinians. 4.3 billion dollars over 10 years means 2.15 million dollars (corrected amount is $2,150.00) total for every Palestinian man, woman and child. Then divide that by ten years and you have $215,000.00 per person (corrected amount is $215.00) each year. A family of 5 multiplies that number by 5. Ten family members = 2.15 million dollars (corrected amount is $2,150.00) a year! And this only figures what the US has given, not including the EU, the UN and all the Muslim countries.

What is wrong with this picture? Do you really think the Palestinian leaders want to change the playing field to make peace with Israel? Keep in mind that the people live near the poverty line.

“Thus will I accomplish My wrath on the wall and on those who have plastered it with untempered mortar; and I will say to you, ‘The wall is no more, nor those who plastered it, that is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for her when there is no peace,’ ” says the Lord Yehovah. Ezekiel 13:15-16

Pray for the real peace of Jerusalem, the Messiah! Jesus, the Son of God. Yeshua ben Yehovah!

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
