Palestinian and Israeli Gardens

In my article The Difference Between Israelis and Palestinians I pointed out that in Israeli fairy tales the story ends with peace between natural enemies while in Palestinian fairy tales the story ends with the death of the Jews and Israel wiped off the map.

Today I would like to point out the difference between Palestinian and Israeli Gardens.

The photo here is of Mount Tabor in 1912 when the Ottoman Turks were in charge; a desolate, barren, inhospitable desert. However from Biblical times until their arrival, Mount Tabor was entirely covered with vegetation. When the Turks arrived, they began to deforest the land and overgraze the plains with their animals.

[A bit of trivia:] Between the Arab on horse and Mount Tabor (in the distance) is Jezreel Valley where the Battle of Megiddo was fought. In Christian Eschatology, this part of the valley is believed to be destined to be the site of a final battle, between good and evil, known as Armageddon.

When the Jews regained control of Israel they began to reforest the area. Today, most of Mount Tabor is covered with pine trees.

Here is what the area around Mount Tabor looks like now:

"But wait, Bernie," some of my readers may complain, "It's not fair to judge poor Arabs who had no help with the land as Israelis had from philanthropic American Jews."

Let's examine that notion: in 2005 Israel with­drew from the Gaza Strip, leaving millions of dollars of hydro­ponic veg­etable grow­ing facil­i­ties and ware­houses as a goodwill ges­ture from American Jews to the Palestinians (1). Those facil­i­ties would have pro­vided the Pales­tini­ans with tens of thousands of jobs and would have fed all of Gaza.

How did the Gaza Palestinians treat the more than 3,000 greenhouses?

I am an atheist, but I have to admire the Jewish settlers who farmed in Gaza because they treated the land as a gift from God. The Palestinians treat their own land as a disease-ridden step-child (2). They are a scourge upon the Earth as well as upon mankind.

This article is dedicated to all the idiot Jews who believe one can make peace with locusts.

Khaleej Times, 19 Aug 2005, US Jews buy Gaza greenhouses for Palestinians

American Jewish philanthropists contributed $14 million to buy former Gaza settlers’ greenhouses for Palestinians, a news report said yesterday.

Without the funds, the Jewish settlers would have destroyed the greenhouses to keep them out of Arab hands as they were forced out of Gaza Strip, the New York Times said.

The greenhouses provide jobs for 3,500 Palestinians and had been a lucrative market for fresh produces for Jewish settlers.

The Times said Mortimer B. Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and a real estate tycoon, last week got a request from former World Bank head James D. Wolfensohn to raise money in order to save the greenhouses. Zuckerman sent out word to Jewish organisations in the United States for help.

Within 48 hours, he received $14 million. Wolfensohn, who contributed $500,000 of his own, is the international envoy to Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza.

He represents the sponsors of the so-called road map for Mideast peace — the United States, the European Union, Russia and the UN.

The Gaza pullout is part of the quartet’s peace plan.

MSNBC, 13 Sep 2005, Looters strip Gaza greenhouses

Palestinians looted dozens of greenhouses on Tuesday, walking off with irrigation hoses, water pumps and plastic sheeting in a blow to fledgling efforts to reconstruct the Gaza Strip.

...

Palestinian police stood by helplessly Tuesday as looters carted off materials from greenhouses in several settlements, and commanders complained they did not have enough manpower to protect the prized assets. In some instances, there was no security and in others, police even joined the looters, witnesses said.
