Palestinians Resume Rocket Attacks on Israel, Rewarded With $242 Million

Just imagine how much money they'd rake in if they acted like human beings. Even more shameful, our own Secretary of State is there to aid in this perfidy.
International donors committed 242 million dollars on Tuesday for security infrastructure in the Palestinian territories, a German government source said on the sidelines of a conference here.

The money will be passed to the Palestinian Authority over the next three years and will be spent on grassroots measures like putting more police on the beat and building police stations and courthouses to create conditions for a viable Palestinian state.

Delegations from more than 40 countries and international organisations attended the conference in the German capital, including US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad and Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni.

It was due to be followed in the evening by a meeting of the Middle East Quartet -- the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia -- as a truce between Israel and Hamas entered its sixth day.

"Every link in what we call the chain of security must be intact and unbreakable. To ... invest in a future state the Palestinians must have confidence that their police, courts, penal system are dedicated to upholding the rule of law and respecting human rights," Rice said at the opening of the one-day conference.
Hu much longer must this sick joke go on? And since when is maintaining law and order a grassroots measure?


Meanwhile, after being re-armed with $242 million in money for weapons the children, the Pali terror gang resumed doing what comes naturally: Trying to murder Israelis, which bring us this immortal headline from MessNBC:

Palestinian rockets fired at Israel despite truce

Uh, not to quibble, but when rockets are fired, there is no truce. Then again, this is MSNBC, so expect nothing less than abject stupidity and leftwing nitwittery.
Militants in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip fired at least two rockets into southern Israel on Tuesday, breaching a five-day-old cease-fire.

The attack came hours after Israeli troops killed two Palestinians in a West Bank raid. The victims included an Islamic Jihad commander. The militant group later claimed responsibility for firing the rockets, saying the attack was intended to avenge the Israeli operation.

The West Bank is not formally part of the Gaza truce. But the Israeli raid could be seen as violating the spirit of the cease-fire.
Yes, and their reportage could be seen as violating the spirit of journalistic responsibility.
