Someone please tell me why our U.S. government continues to provide aid (see: “U.S. pledges $212 million to help Gaza rebuild,” Monday, Oct. 13) to rebuild Gaza?
Hamas and Israel continue to fight, as they have always done. When they stop, for brief truces, the U.S. runs in and rebuilds the infrastructure. Why?
This is, according to the article, the third time in less than six years that war has broken out. Each time, the U.S. gives a whole bunch of money to rebuild.
Here’s an idea: Let them spend their own money and manpower to rebuild. Have both Israel and Hamas split the costs of rebuilding.
Maybe if they don’t have the U.S. government to enable them, they will learn something. Probably not, but it’s worth a try.
Maybe our government will learn something. Probably not.
