Israeli Americans Contribute to Palestenians

Amazingly, a small group of wealthy Israeli Americans, led by NY Daily News Owner Mortimer B. Zuckerman, known more for pro-Israel and anti-Palestenian activism, raised $14 million US to purchase the lucrative greenhouses to prevent them from being destroyed as planned by militant Jewish Settlers being evacuated out of the Gaza Strip.  Thanks to Chuck Currie for bringing this to our attention.

These greenhouses will be turned over to the Palestenian Authority intact, offering 3500 jobs and a small export economy.  The Israeli government already paid $55 million for the land and buildings, but $14 million was needed to pay for the equipment which Israeli law prevented the government from buying (from the Jewish Settlers).
