    Ramallah, West Bank — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has announced a new million-dollar scholarship program to help Palestinian students enroll at Palestinian and American universities.

    Mrs. Clinton announced the Middle East Partnership Initiative during a visit to this Palestinian town last week. The four-year program will support about 10 scholarships each year for disadvantaged students to attend four-year courses at Palestinian universities. The program will also offer 25 “opportunity grants” to enable promising but disadvantaged young Palestinians to apply to American-accredited institutions in the United States or the Middle East, a State Department official told The Chronicle.

    Once funds are approved by Congress, Mrs. Clinton hopes to begin the program in the 2010-11 academic year. The money is in addition to $900-million in aid to the Palestinian Authority announced by the secretary last week at the donors’ conference, in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

    Anything that actually ends the Palestinian-Israel conflict (and giving the palis decent education on emptying their refugee camps as very important for that) may be a worthwhile monetary investment, given how much the USA currently invests in Israels military.

    why do you think education changes their philosophy?

    the people who did the 9/11 bombing lived and worked here and were educated.

    let me know when the investment in Israel comes back at us to blow up two buildings in NY.

    That depends. Are the Palestinian schools or other ME schools going to be vetted for connections with terrorist organizations or philosophies? Are the students going to be vetted for connections to terrorist organizations or philosophies to see if we will be training chemical engineers to build better bombs and chemical weapons for Hamas and al Qaeda?

    Too bad that money isn't being spent on American kids.

    So now we are the police and the educators of the world.

    Wasn't it Obama who said the country with the best educated population will have the greatest success in the world?

    too bad he wants to educate our competitors as well.

    Well.. given how blind support for israel has a knack for pissing off muslims that we are busy shitting on for your zionist sake... Say, anyone hear any good jokes about israel begging the US to attack iran lately?


    I have to say, it's fucking hilarious that you people are so brazen about your racism as long as the subject is muslims. Let someone make the same comment about money laundering 101 and Advanced Ponzi schemes at Hebrew U. and you silly fuckers would be screaming antisemite faster than it takes Ravi to eat a large pizza. by herself.


    Sad, really. Not that princess minds when it comes to stereotyping arabs.. Hell, thats the prerogative of the chosen.. or so sayeth a burning bush..
