While the EU and Arab leaders castigate Bush for refusing to deal anymore with Arafat. Take a look at what is happening on the street in Gaza and ask yourself who is REALLY out of touch with events in Palistine? These pictures were taken Monday the 1st. I got them strait off the wires, but funny they never made it into any news broadcasts...

Since violence broke out in Sept. 2000, many Palestinian workers have lost their jobs in Israel because of security restrictions and unemployment is more than 50 percent in the Palestinian areas.

A Palestinian worker holds pieces of bread while chanting "we are not beggers" as thousands of Palestinian unemployed take to the streets in Gaza on Monday to protest against the failure of the Palestinian Authority to afford them with jobs or financial assistance July 1, 2002. At least 10,000 workers joined the demonstration, including those who lost jobs in Israel as a Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation began in September, 2000 and whose profession was crippled by continued Israeli closure on the Gaza strip.

The PA's unannounced non-payment of July welfare benefits is puzzling as even the US has only threatened to cut aid, it hasn' done so yet and the EU has catagoriclly refused to cut aid. Aid from Arab states isn't in question so...what is Mr. Arafat doing with all the aid money?

So thats how that dirty SOB funds the boatloads of illegal arms shipments and explosives into the region...and all this time I thought he was using the money for medical supplies and food for the martyrs...errrr, uhhhh...i mean people he loves so dearly... Its about time some of the Palestinians are begining to see the truth. Too bad it took them decades of hardship and violence. They seem to be a pretty thick-headed lot though...I'm sure it will be a few more decades before they are really willing to do something about it.

Here is a article, filed a day late, from the AP that trys to downplay the protests.

Arafat fires security and police chiefs: [url]http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=540&ncid=736&e=1&u=/ap/20020702/ap_on_re_mi_ea/palestinian_dismissals_2[/url] Trying to eliminate competition? And can he actually remove them when he is trapped in his building again?

According to rumours reported by Yedioth Aharonot and Ma'ariv, at the beginning of the Intifada, most of the funds that USA and EU sent to Palestinian Authorities are in Israeli and Swiss banks. In the PERSONAL bank account of Mr. Yasser Arafat, of course...
