Arabs renege on Jerusalem pledges to PA

Once again, Arab nations have promised much to their Palestinian Arab brethren - and delivered nothing.

Last March, the Arab League very publicly pledged to give a half billion dollars to the Palestinian Authority to combat the "Judaization" of Jerusalem.

It was always unclear exactly what the money would do, exactly. Chances are the PA would have used it for whatever it wanted to. However, a Jerusalem PA official says that $50 million is needed monthly to effectively combat this "Judaization."

That is a moot point, however = because yesterday's Al Quds al Arabi (quoted by Firas) reported that exactly zero has been distributed to the PA so far by the members of the Arab League.

As usual, the supposed Arab love of Jerusalem doesn't extend beyond the anti-Israel slogan stage.
