    This is CRIMINAL and the UN has NO business politically or financially supporting the PLO to take more land!!! Sinister.

    Where does it say that money is going to the PLO? I agree that the money should be used for its intent, which is to address the poverty in the area, and not to pay for t shirts and bumper stickers, or to fund Hamas. But to imply that the money is financing the PLO is incorrect.

    It's doesn't say PLO. It says a Palestinian campaign. Not remotely the same thing.

    Don't ask me. That's your job to find out, since you made the claim. You said it's the PLO. But the story doesn't say that.

    [​IMG] There is nothing to "find out".


    The PLO aka the Palestine Liberation Organization is the political movement behind the establishment of the Palestinian state and has a committee in Gaza that has been negotiating with Israel regarding the Gaza pullout. Also recognized by the United Nations as the representative of the Palestinians.

    Where in the story does it say that the PLO received the money in question? No where. It says money was used to fund a campaign of t-shirts and bumper stickers. You have failed to make a connection. If you can make a conection, then great, I'll buy it.

    I really don't understand why people are so prideful that it's not in their nature to say "the story doesn't say, but I suspect the PLO is running the campaign". Are some so afraid to think they might possibly be wrong about their original assessment??

    Me thinks a gnat is being pursued.

    Doesn't matter if it is the PLO/PA, Hamas, or Palestinian Jihad - the ideology and end goal to eliminate Jews is the same.

    LE, I already stated that I find this funding offensive. There's no arguement there.

    I'm making a clear point that a pervious poster named the PLO, despite the fact that the story does not mention the PLO at all.

    I’m sorry my friend but perhaps your pride is leading you to post again and again about something you claim you don’t even know the answer to. Why is this so hard for you to understand?

    If the PLO is the representive of the Palestinians and recognized by the United Nations as such, then who else could it be - a non Palestinian group. Obviously not. There are other branches of the PLO including interim and umbrella organizations but the PLO is the recognized representative of the Palestinians including the Gaza pullout.

    How do you know that Palestinian Jihad didn't receive the money? How do you know that Hamas wasn't using the money?

    You don't. The story doesn't say. So for you to say the story says the PLO received teh money is wrong. It's something a liberal journalist would do, quite frankly.

    The PLO may very likely have been the recipient of the money. But without more info, we simply do not know for sure.

    Here is some information for you to read from my original post. I’m beginning to think you have some other issue. This is getting ridiculous. :rolleyes:

    Here is a link that mentions the PA which is an interim of the PLO.

    The PA is not an interim of the PLO. They're separate bodies. I believe there are folks in the PA who were or were involved in the PLO. But it's incorrect to say that they're interims or imply that they're synomyms. That's like saying our tax money goes to the Democratic Party because there are democrats in the federal government. Although, I'm sure there are a few here would would very much like to compare the Democratic Party to the PLO (did I really say that out loud??? :eek: )

    The PA's role here has not been questioned, and, as I said, I disapprove of it. However, you have not established you claim that the PLO received the money in question.

    The PA is an interim of the PLO. It's a known fact. My claim has been established again and again but you refuse to read or perhaps you just don't understand.

    Obviously you not know who this man is? If you just read my original post you can solve your great mystery.

    Not so. The PA is the elected body of the Palestinian people. The PLO was formed as loose federation of Arab militants and mercenaries who desired to establish a palestinian entity. They were not and are not now populus elected. Oh, and Ahmed Qureia is the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority. I think most folks are aware that he joined the PLO in the late 60's. He had quite a few runins and disagreements with Yassir Arafat over PA policy when Arafat was PA leader. He credits Israeli PM Ariel Sharon for having once saved his life.
