For “reconstruction and rehabilitation in Gaza” — that and nothing else. “Saudis Pledge to Cover Over Half of PA War Costs,” by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz for Israel National News, January 20 :
(IsraelNN.com) The economic cost of the three-week Gaza war to the Palestinian Authority totals more than 1.9 billion US dollars, according to PA estimates. Saudi Arabia has pledged to pick up more than half of the tab, with other states offering financial assistance to Hamas as well.[…]
Saudi Arabia pledged to provide the PA in Gaza, under the jihadist Hamas regime, with one billion dollars. The funds, Saudi King Abdullah said, are to go towards the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Gaza.
Perhaps the Saudis are sincere in their desire that this billion goes to nothing but “reconstruction and rehabilitation.” Then again, perhaps they already “donate” separate billions to Hamas to further the latter’s terrorist activities, thereby fulfilling their own duty towards the jihad — jihad al-mal, the “money-jihad,” which Bin Laden recently reminded Muslims of.
According to the Saudi monarch, “One drop of Palestinian blood” is more valuable than all the money in the world…
Except, of course, when “Palestinian blood,” especially that of women and children, is not just “dropped” but splattered everywhere whenever Hamas members utilize them as human-shields.
