$1 Billion for Gaza

I asked some questions yesterday about who will help rebuild Gaza. Saudi Arabia is first on board with a pledge for $1 Billion. Kuwait has offered up a mere $34 Million, but it's a start. Hey. I wonder if Chaney's company could help out?

Here's some interesting notes from the article:

"Now Hamas knows what Israel does when it is attacked. Also the world knows what Israel does when attacked, and even accepts it."

The world "accepts it"? Does she read the papers?

At the conference in Kuwait, even leaders of Arab states friendly to the U.S. lashed out at Israel for using excessive force. "Our weaponless families in Gaza are facing an atrocious Israeli aggression targeting innocents and demolishing all pillars of life," said Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Ahmad Sabah, calling Israel's offensive a "crime against humanity" and a "blatant violation of the simplest principles of human rights."

I guess he didn't get Livni's memo.

"We support the right of people to resist the occupation," he said. "But a resistance is responsible in front of its people . . . for the victims and suffering it leads to."

The reverse of what many say about Israel.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
"This is the outset of the victory and the resistance would complete it with making more achievements in the future," the news agency quoted the president as saying. "The occupiers' withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, removal of the Israeli blockades from the besieged area and reopening of the border crossings would pave the grounds for a complete victory."

He missed the victory speech from Israel.
