Especially considering that the International Red Cross has declared there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza, let alone the West Bank.
Elder of Ziyon Based on data from the Global Humanitarian Assistance 2011 report and their country population data, here is a chart showing – of the top 20 countries/entities that receive humanitarian aid – how much they get on a per-capita basis:
In absolute terms, Sudan receives the most aid and “Palestine” the second most (the gap is narrowing in recent years.) But on a per-capita basis, the Palestinian Arabs receive about 9 times as much aid as the Sudanese do, and of course far more aid per capita than any other people on the planet.
Keep that in mind when the next mall, five star hotel or seaside resort opens in Gaza or the West Bank. Or ask yourself whether Palestinian Arabs deserve 39 times the aid per capita that residents of the Congo receive.
