The Palestinian's New Racket - Counterfeit Medications!

To understand the Palestinians, all you need to know is something about the Mafia.

Protection rackets, embezzlement, hijacking, drugs, prostitution, no-show jobs...the Palestinian Authority's leaders have used all of them to line their personal pockets and to divert money into private slush funds like the $1.5 billion Palestine Investment Fund. That will continue as long as the UN and gullible western donors continue to ante up.

Their latest racket has a real touch of genius to it, I have to admit.

In response to the so-called 'humanitarian emergency' in the Palestinian occupied areas of Gaza,Judea and Samaria (AKA the West Bank) lots of valuable drugs and medications have been donated by groups like OxFam, the International Red Cross, the EU and the UN and of course, the American taxpayer.

Apparently,it's been recently discovered that for years, senior Fatah officials controlling what passes for the Palestinian Authority health system made a bundle by systematically stealing these valuable medications and replacing them with worthless placebo pills!

The placebos, which had no medical value whatsoever, were sent along to clinics and hospitals, where they were given to patients,without anyone saying a word about it.

The real stuff was taken to warehouses in Ramallah and Shechem(Nablus) for sale at premium prices on the black market.

And as I said,it's apparently been going on for years.

This is just another in a long line of scams perpetrated by the various functionaries of the Palestinian authority over the years. Sufah Arafat's $20,000 per month hush money and her luxurious villa in Paris isn't coming out of thin air.

Just as a useful contrast, here's how the 'brutal Zionist occupiers' treat Palestinians in need of urgent medical attention - as opposed to their own rulers.
