Politics, not charity

"Based on a call from the Israeli-Palestinian organization Alternative Information Center, we Swedish NGOs would like to support their message that emergency and humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip is counterproductive without political demands. This message is instrumental at this very moment when many countries are rushing to pledge funds for the rebuilding of Gaza in upcoming donor conferences." (Thanks Marcy).

These are NGOs after my own heart. The greatest threat to Palestine is that it would become a humanitarian issue rather than a political issue.
