UAE to build housing for Gaza terrorists

From Ma'an:
Gaza's housing minister said Thursday that the United Arab Emirates has donated $50 million to build a housing project for Palestinians released from Israeli jails.

The "prisoners city," which will be located in central Gaza, will be named after the UAE leader Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, minister of public works and housing Yousef Subhi Al-Ghariz said.
Why exactly should former prisoners - most of whom were convicted on terrorism charges - need special housing?

The fact that the "moderate" UAE is prioritizing this project in Gaza shows that the larger Arab world still supports and rewards terrorism.

UPDATE: Elder of Lobby half-jokes: "Having lived in Israeli prisons they got used to higher living standards than those available in Gaza."
