Aiding and abetting Islamic terrorism. “Â£19m in aid to Gaza” means aid for Hamas. Read the Hamas charter, here:
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
There are no words. NewÂ UK government groveling to Islamists; the British government is attempting to placate Muslim pressure groups in the UK by saying, “Look at us, you’re not going to catch us being soft on Israel, we’re as furious and condemning as you are.”
The money, to be spent on healthcare,Â education and other services, (?) will be announced by International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell on Sunday.
It will go to the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), on which about 70% of Gazans rely to meet their basic needs.
The support comes amid heightened international concern about Israel’s blockade of Gaza after the violent confrontation on an aid ship this week.
But the money is part of a five-year Â£100 million funding arrangement with the UNRWA that was entered into in 2006.
Mr Mitchell, who has confirmed the latest tranche of support, reiterated the Government’s calls for Israel to allow aid into Gaza.
“The humanitarian situation in Gaza is both unacceptable and unsustainable,” he said.
“The UK is committed to helping those people affected by this crisis and that is why I am today providing Â£19 million to help meet their most basic needs.
“There is an immediate need for unfettered access to Gaza if the humanitarian situation is to be improved, to allow the economy to get back on its feet, and to give the young people of Gaza the prospect of a better future.
“I call on the government of Israel to open the crossings to help end this humanitarian crisis.”
“Humanitarian crisis” here
Arabs in general and Falestinians in particular are by nature experts at displays of suffering.
We con the world!
On an international scale the Fakestinian Arabs are no 8 in obesity.

- Who cares about Gazans? Not the flotilla!
- Hamas refusing aid from flotilla (UPDATED)
- Amnesty International official ties himself up in rhetorical knots
“But there is a larger issue here. What exactly is the humanitarian crisis that the flotilla was actually addressing? There is none. No one is starving in Gaza. The Gazans have been supplied with food and social services by the U.N. for 60 years in part with American tax money.”

“But there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza at all!”
â€“Monica Crowley, Fox Business Network (6/2/10)
“But there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza; if anyone goes without food, shelter or medicine, that is by the choice of the Hamas government, which puts garnering international sympathy above taking care of its citizens.”
â€“Daniel Gordis, New York Times op-ed (6/3/10)
“I just had an expert on, a congressman, Mike Pence, from Indiana, who is an expert on this issue as well. He said, look it, there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. People are eating in Gaza. There is medical aid. You are talking about paper, crayons and olive trees, and placing basically your volunteers in a potential situation where they could be hurt or even killed.”
â€“CNN’s Drew Griffin, interviewing Free Gaza’s Greta Berlin (6/2/10)
“If you walk down Gaza City’s main thoroughfareâ€“Salah al-Din Streetâ€“grocery stores are stocked wall-to-wall with everything from fresh Israeli yogurts and hummus to Cocoa Puffs smuggled in from Egypt. Pharmacies look as well-supplied as a typical Rite Aid in the United States…. Gazans readily admit they are not going hungry.”
â€“Janine Zacharia, Washington Post news article (6/3/10)
“Even though Israel has managed to stave off a humanitarian crisis by allowing the entry of food, fuel and medical requirements, to the world it was engaging in a policy of collective punishment.”
â€“Martin Indyk, Time column (6/14/10)
Such assertions echo Israeli talking pointsâ€“such as Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon’s claim (Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs,Â 5/29/10), just before the assault, that the flotilla was “a provocation intended to delegitimize Israel. There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
