Aid and Comfort

The Hamas-Fatah power struggle has descended into the gutter over the past few days, with both parties trading allegations about the involvement of their members in homosexual relations and adultery.  --from this news article

Arafat famously had a taste for young blondes, but the young blondes in question were young blond German boys (at work was that well-known phenomenon, the sexual attraction offered by The Other, observable as well in the behavior of Frenchmen, such as Gide, who found favored catamites among Moroccans, and then elsewhere in the Maghreb). It is annoying to think that the P.A., and the P.L.O., and for that matter every other "Palestinian" group and leader, carries on -- in every sense -- because funds have been furnished by long-suffering Western taxpayers. So it was your tax money and mine that bankrolled the services rendered to Arafat by those blond German boytoys, and a great many others (see Orianna Fallaci for more on Arafat's personal behavior and brutta figura). Looking today at the "Palestinians," with their Lesser Jihad still unrecognized for what it is by those busily preparing for that absurd, dangerous, and utterly wrongheaded "Two-State-Solution" Conference to be held in Annapolis in November, and realizing just some of the ways that your tax-dollars have been put to work (that apartment Suha Arafat has on the Avenue Foch, or thereabouts, that modish haute couteur picked up after viewing those defiles on the Avenue Montaigne, that billion she made off with, and of course the sums those blond German boys, and many others, also must have made off with), do you think you've been getting your money's worth? Are you pleased with the decision of the American government, or of those governments in Western Europe, to keep shelling out hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars so that those petty lords of "Palestinian" misrule can continue to buy those apartments in Paris and Cannes, and send their children to school (it's all paid for, completely, by you the Western taxpayers), and to buy those season tickets to brothels, with girls or, as the case may be, boys? Happy to have kept Arafat auprès de ses blond(e)s, où il fait bon fait bon fait bon?

When does foreign aid become aid and comfort for the enemy? When the aid comes from Infidels, and is given to Muslims. Always such aid is taken without gratitude by the recipient, while the Infidel donor becomes more and more convinced that the aid must continue to be given, lest the Muslim recipient become angry, and turn on the donor.

That's when.
