The International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Thursday urged international donors to increase funding for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to aid “Palestinian reform efforts,” indicating the new Fatah-Hamas unity government.
IMF mission chief Christoph Duenwald said the PA is “doing a commendable job” of managing its economy, but that the global donor community needs to fill a “sizable” gap in funds for the PA, reports AFP.
It is worth noting that as of March, the PA had reached a staggering $4.8 billion in debt.
“Against the background of rising political uncertainty, the economy of the West Bank and Gaza is weakening,” said Duenwald. “Unemployment, particularly youth unemployment, currently at 43%, continues to rise from already high levels.”
In his call for funding, Duenwald said “continued donor support is vital at this time, as is a comprehensive easing of Israeli restrictions to underpin the Palestinian reform efforts.”
The IMF is now behind the Hamas and PA Government. This is the most important fact and is the key to understanding the abductions of the 3 Jewish youth and of the abduction also of the Palestinian Arab youth. The background is being ignored by essentially Jew and Israel hating commenters on blogs like the Irish “The journal” (please understand that many of these commenters on these “Irish” blogs are not Irish)
So the question is why the IMF which along with NATO its armed wing is so intent on preserving the descendents of Hajj Amin el Husseini. same reason as why they promoted the Islamist Savage Izetbegovic in Yugoslavia in the 1990s, who hosted Bin Laden in Bosnia and began the process leading to 9-11
Consider that the whole of the capitalist system is in deep crisis. There is mass unemployment in Europe. There is also mass unemployment in America because many of the population especially youth have no contract in work, but work day to day, month to month. Big moves to disable protest are being taken by the Spanish PP government.
The capitalist governments in Britain have over decades allowed the influx of big numbers of Muslims who have not and will not integrate into British social life but instead demand Shariah Law living. That breaks down parliamentary democracy and is a step towards Fascist Rule (where parliament does not rule)
Meanwhile in America the Obama Government is at this very moment signing for millions of ilegal immigrants to be made legal. This changes a country very quickly and most of all it makes a joke out of laws and regulations, laws and regulations which were laid down by “parliamentary democracy”, in this case Congress.
Capitalism in a deep crisis will do ANYTHING to survive. This extends to spy snooping on all of us and to making war on its competitors, especially on the China and Russian Empires.
And in that context what capitalism in crisis is doing is creating Alliance with the strongest fascist forces at present on earth, which are those of Islam…the Jihad! With ISIL! And our report from Aaron Klein shows that is what the US and EU has done.
We cannot yet know who was behind the abductions of the past week. But stirring it up between Jew and Arab and destroying the Jews while keeping Islam as a Fascist battering arm may be the main aim
So this article is very important. We Trotskyists on http://www.4international.me say that the Jews in the world MUST HAVE their Homeland which is Israel.
We believe that there are many Arabs, and many Palestinian Arabs, who can be won to this concept also. This also applies to the Arab youth and the Arab women but not exclusively them either…all Arabs.
Many Arabs can see that “Palestinianism” is in fact Fascism and so can see this form of Fascism as the weapon of the capitalist ruling clases of the world. Yes this article is important and it raises the vital question…what is in it for the IMF?:
