The stateless Arabs - who, rather than build a state themselves, demand that one be awarded to them (oh, and btw it must have as its capital the capital of the Jewish state) - have the strangest way of going about things. Think about this little newsbit for a minute:
JERICHO, West Bank (AFP) – Palestinian customs officials on Wednesday dumped tens of thousands of dollars worth of Dead Sea beauty products into dumpsters as part of a boycott of goods made in Israeli settlements.
"This destruction ... is in keeping with the decision of the Palestinian leadership to prevent the import and sale of products produced in the settlements," local official Munthar Erakat said.
Officials set the value of the destroyed products, including shampoo, face cream and hand lotion made from the mineral-rich Dead Sea, at 55,000 dollars (38,000 euros).
Shopkeepers in the Palestinian oasis town of Jericho near the Dead Sea said local authorities had been raiding their stores in search of the products.
The products were manufactured by Dead Sea Cosmetics under their popular Ahava brand....
Who is hurt by such an action, but they themselves? You destroy $55,000 worth of cosmetics taken from the shelves of Arab shopkeepers, and who is out the $55,000? Not the evil Israelis, but the poorpalestinians.
And this was not even a spontaneous act of anger, rebellion or resistance. It is official policy. How stupid can you get? How self-destructive. But then what could be expected of a people who don't mind blowing themselves up as long as they can kill Jews in the process?
Yeah, give them "economic opportunity." They will throw it in a dumpster. Give them a state. They will destroy it. They literally can't help themselves.
