from AFP (thanks to DW:
PARIS (AFP) – France will hold a special conference of donors for the Palestinians at the end of the year which will be co-hosted by the Mideast Quartet special envoy Tony Blair and Norway, a joint statement said Wednesday.
“France will host a major donors’ conference for Palestine at the end of the year at the request of (Palestinian) President (Mahmud) Abbas,” the statement said.
“Tony Blair and Norway will co-chair the conference with France,” it said, adding: “Tony Blair in his capacity as special representative of the Quartet and Norway as chair of the ad hoc liaison committee (AHLC).”
“This conference will aim to mobilise the donors … to provide political and financial support to the Palestinian Authority by creating the capacities and the conditions for building a viable Palestinian state.”
Kouchner added that a meeting has been organised by Blair next week in Jerusalem to give out invitations to the donors’ conference.
“A state is not a negotiation about territory, it has also got to be about what that state does, the nature of that state, how it runs its security, its social, educational and health systems, encouragement of the private sector and economic development,” Blair told reporters.
“It also means changing what is happening on the ground so that…the prospect of jobs and prosperity, particularly for the Palestinian people, as well as security for the Israeli people can come about.”
* Briars comment:
Tony Blair is a pathetic loser in the same frame as Neville Chamberlain. The entire emphasis of the Palestinian state is hatred and murder. It’s a mob of gangsters bent on destroying Israel and filling their own coffers in the process. This is like donating money to a herd of junkies. It will be used to buy more drugs. In this case it will be used to buy more ammo to destroy Israel. Tony Blair is a coward, an opportunist, a misguided, spineless traitor and should go down in Western history as such.
