Charitable Giving

A Gaza "charity" affiliated with Hamas has offered a whopping $1.4 million to anybody who captures an Israeli soldier.

One would think that, given all the poverty in Gaza and all the reconstruction and rebuilding that needs to be done there, a charity could find better and more immediate uses for nearly one and a half million dollars. Alas, it seems like many of these organizations are more interested in provoking and prolonging the conflict with Israel than they are with bettering the lives of Palestinians. Go figure.
