Remember the wacky Palestine Quiz and the fun we all had getting everything wrong?
Now here’s a bonus question:
Which country stuck its neck out and tried to borrow to borrow $100 million from the IMF to give to the Palestinian Authority to prevent its potential collapse?
b) Saudi Arabia
c) United States
e) None of the above
Answer: e) None of the above.
It was, in fact, Israel. For the sake of peace and security no-one on earth has done more to build the foundations of a Palestinian state than its neighbour, Israel. The thanks it has received both from the Arab world and the laughingly named International Solidarity Movement is as miserable as Israel has been generous.
