The Orthodox Christian Church in Chile is growing, often by converts into Orthodoxy.

With beautiful dancers like that, it is no wonder why.

004 – Cost Effectiveness

From the Jerusalem Post:

‘Evacuating small settlements could cost NIS 250b.’

By TOVAH LAZAROFF 04/30/2013 06:28


The evacuation of isolated West Bank Jewish communities outside of the settlement blocs could cost the government more than NIS 250 billion, the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip said on Monday.

NIS 250 Billion (New Israeli Shekels) is about US $70 Billion.

This is what it would cost to remove some of the smaller settlements in Judea and Samaria (what the world calls the West Bank). That would be just a fraction of the cost of a creating a Palestinian state. The real cost of creating a Palesitnian state would approach a trillon dollars.

The Two State Solution is dead 

Blame the Arabs or blame Israel with its settlement expansion. Does it matter?  It is dead.   There is no way, Judea and Samaria can be evacuated, even if one were to ignore the threat of settler violence which would follow implementation of evacuation.

A Better Solution 

Israel would do better to offer each young, unemployed, and landless Palestinians US $100,000 per person to leave for South America, along with travelling papers.

$70 Billion would allow 700,000 Palestinians to leave Judea and Samaria.

That is almost half of the up and coming young Arab generation in Judea and Samaria.

A young family of five, who are living in a small apartment, could be given $500,000 (5 x $100,000) to leave for South America.

In South America, $500,000 could buy them a nice house in a major town, as well as a business, and a car, with money left over to put in the bank.

Why South America?

002 – Cost to Uproot Settlers

Evacuating small settlements could cost NIS 250b – JPOST – By TOVAH LAZAROFF 04/30/2013

The evacuation of isolated West Bank Jewish communities outside of the settlement blocs could cost the government more than NIS 250 billion, the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip said on Monday.

NIS 250 Billion is roughly $70 Billion dollars.

It would cost $70 Billion just to evacuate the small settlements in Judea and Samaria (the contested areas).

Even that would not be enough to bring peace. It would still leave Judea and Samaria filled with large settlements that no Palestinian could accept.   When other other costs are added in, the numbers rise to the hundreds of billions of dollars (in US dollars), up to a trillion dollars.

That is even ignoring the violent settler backlash which would occur.

The cost of evacuating enough settlers in order to make the Palestinians happy would be prohibitive.

I am not going to get into a debate here about who is right or who is wrong. At this point, it is meaningless. It is too late to correct, now.

Okay the Cost is Prohibitive, but what about the large Number of Arabs in  Judea and Samaria?

Venezuela Criticizes Israeli Attacks on Syria

http://www.telesurtv.net/articulos/2013/05/06/venezuela-rechaza-energicamente-los-ataques-de-israel-contra-siria-3163.html

El jefe de Estado venezolano, Nicolás Maduro, durante un acto como parte de su Gobierno de calle en el estado Miranda (centro), destacó que Venezuela es “un pueblo de corazón abierto, y por eso rechaza los ataques de Israel contra Palestina y Siria”.


The Chief of the Venezuelan State (president), Nicolas Maduro, during a Government event from street in Miranda State (center), declared that Venezuela is “an open-hearted people, and therefore rejects Israel’s attacks against Palestine and Syria.”.

I do not know what Palestine had to do with yesterday’s Israeli attacks on Syria, but the President just threw that in there for good measure.

This is coming from Venezuela, by a President who was hand picked by Hugo Chavez to succeed him. Chavez had set up a government policy which was very hostile to Israel.

Apparently, Mr. Maduro, is following in Chavez’s anti-Israel footsteps.

You would have to expect this from a Venezuela under a Chavista president.

Ecuador – under a government similar to Venezuela’s – also criticized Israel.
