Sweden pledges $209m to Palestinians
Sweden will increase its aid to the Palestinians this year and in 2008 to more than $200 million dollars, the government said on Monday as a large donors' conference opened in Paris.
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said the Scandinavian country would increase its planned aid to the Palestinian people over the next two years by 90 million kronor ($13.7 million) to 1.37 billion ($209 million).
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas at the conference urged the international community to step up support to the Palestinians or risk a "catastrophe", as he appealed for $5.6 billion in aid.

OMG! We are activelly supporting a murderous fanatical regime and we plan to extend the "aid" to them! I... I... I... i'm out of loss of words!
How the friggin' frugg (that's a FUCK for you sensitives) are the palis going to support theselves? When the Israelians had control over the areas they could support themselves by constructing- amongst others- large computer controlled greenhouses. Constructions that in a matter of days after the palis got controll of them was plundered, ruined and later used as fronts for building weapons smuggeling tunnels in to Israelian soil.
How stupid are we? The palis in the Gaza strip could right now be setting up a midterrenian paradise beach resort and just gobble in the tourist money. But noooo. Why should they do that when all they have to do is fire off some more quassam rockets in to Israel, aimed exlusively for civilian residences (because they can't even get that right!)- and by doing so get rewarded with even more "aid" from Europeian countrys.
Well I'm all for it- in a way. Let's "send" them a couple of hundred Excaliburs flying in instead. Thats the kind of "aid" I want to see being given away. 166000 dollars worth of it every time!
The palis did not get 5,6 billion- they got 7,4 billions instead. HO HO HO!
