    So how are things going for the rest of the "Oppressed", "Genocided", "starved", and "cleansed" 'Palestinians'?
    Quite well with (US/EU/UNRWA) money and other Foreign investment - even better than in Prosperous Gaza.

    Pessimists say that the challenges faced by the Palestinian economy -
    including the separation between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip -
    are too great to overcome. But investment in the region is climbing.



    With Five-star Hotels, Booming High-tech companies and a modern, New city under construction near Ramallah, the West Bank is preparing for the future.
    Local entrepreneurs speculate that if the Palestinians ever gain independence, their country could become a leader in the region.

    "Foreign investment"

    Globalist code word for "You do not own your country."

    A waste of good money better spent on zambian refugee camps, of course.
    Which palistanis, of course, happen to have never had anyway.

    Ridiculous. Japanese firms have investments in the U.S. The world is a "global village" now.

    OK, but that is a drop in the bucket compared to our overall economy. Fayyad's plan is to have any business of size to be foreign owned. Almost all of the profits made in Palestine will leave the country.
