«The Palestinian Authority, largely funded by the U.S. and other countries, now employs 180,000 people who are not ready to sacrifice their jobs for another intifada»
This is a statement by Abdul Sattar Kassem, a Palestinian political science professor at An Najah University in Nablus.
«There isn’t the morale, motivation or the leadership for another intifada. People aren’t sure what it would achieve. They think they have more to lose».
The Arab Palestinian professor claims there is a huge work force, funded by the United States and European Union that are scared for their jobs.
«We don’t feel the occupation as much» he added, and noted that the Palestinian Authority, largely funded by the U.S. and other countries, now employs 180,000 people who«are not ready to sacrifice their jobs for another intifada».
Palestinians and Israelis point to a weak, fractured Palestinian leadership that has disavowed violence, tight Israeli control in the greater part of the territories, and a budding West Bank economy that has led many Palestinians to conclude that the price of another intifada would be too high.

This is really amazing. Its not at all strange that Hamas wins the «elections». They gain the votes from all the Arab Palestinians who are not employed by Washington….
