In the "Do Ya Think!" Dept.

The Palewhinians must have a great brain trust working for them, because now that the Israelis have given into world pressure and gave the Gaza strip to these terrorists, they realize that they are going to be a backwater slum.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Rival visions for the future are being offered ahead of January elections in the Gaza Strip, where many residents fear that with the pullout of Israeli settlers, their land will become an impoverished backwater isolated from the rest of the world.

One vision is offered by the militant group Hamas, which has distributed posters depicting a masked gunman crushing the roofs of Jewish settlements and trampling the Jewish Star of David. Another Hamas poster shows the Israeli parliament building in flames.

Billboards sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA), in contrast, offer up promises of a reconstruction effort alongside images of children at play next to a field of dandelions and a rainbow in the colors of a Palestinian flag.

Neither vision addresses the greatest fear of Gazans -- that the Israeli disengagement will leave them physically and economically isolated in a region just double the size of the District of Columbia.

There are still no assurances that border crossings to Egypt and Israel will be opened, that settlement activity will stop in the West Bank or that sufficient financial assistance will arrive from abroad.

They got the land that they were whining about, and now what are they going to do with it? The Gaza Strip is going to become a haven for terrorists and just another Arab slum. They have no initiative to help themselves, they expect everything handed to them on a silver platter and they expect Israel to give them all of it's land. Yasser Arafat and the rest of the PA leadership have been telling their people lies and giving them false hope for decades, and now that reality is sinking in, they now are in a slum of their own making. No sympathy and no more land, live with what you got and make the best of it. Whiners!!
