My Mideast Punchlines: nice “work” if you can get it…

An audit has found that the EU largesse is paying Palestinian civil servants in Gaza who haven’t worked in six years! Some 65,000 civil servants and members of the security forces in Gaza stopped reporting to their jobs in 2007, when Hamas seized the territory from Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, leaving him with only the West Bank.

Abbas decided at the time to keep paying their salaries, on condition they stay at home and don’t work for the Hamas government…

The auditors recommended halting EU payments to Palestinian civil servants in Gaza and using the aid instead on the West Bank.

Small FistWhere it will go straight into the pockets of 65,000 civil servants who are also not working because there aren’t enough government jobs to go around. Nice “work” if you can get it.
