Many Palestinians fear Gaza withdrawal

From WorldNetDaily...

Israel this week is taking with it hundreds of foreign workers who will be evacuated from the Gaza Strip along with the few Jewish residents still remaining, while leaving behind thousands of Palestinian employees, several of whom told WorldNetDaily yesterday their lives are now in danger....

...close to 2,000 Palestinians who also worked in Katif will not be permitted to continue working in Israel.

The Palestinians workers, who had traveled every day from Gaza City and Khan Yunis into Gush Katif and had become friendly with their Jewish employers, told WND their lives may now be in danger by area militants who had long considered them "collaborators."...

The workers say they fear the general domestic consequences of Israel's Gaza withdrawal.

"We know once Israel leaves, Hamas is in power. A lot of the Palestinians in Gaza are really upset about this because life won't be good for us," Mahmoud [a greenhouse worker] said.

With Hamas swiftly gaining ground in Gaza, recently winning local legislative elections, analysts have pointed to worrying signs the terror group will attempt to impose an Islamist regime on Palestinians in the area.

Hm. I wonder how many Jews feel safe working in Palestinian controlled areas? Kind of puts the sides into perspective when so many of the Palestinians themselves fear Israel's withdrawal.

...meanwhile in Saudi Arabia...

Paper cups with Hebrew writing disturbed both employees and medical staff at King Khaled National Guard Hospital on Saturday. The catering subcontractor for the hospital coffee shops began using them on Saturday after their usual supply ran out.

“We were shocked and angry,” said an employee. “How can Israeli products be allowed and how did they enter this hospital?” he asked.

The Filipino employee who works in the Al-Musbah coffee shop asked: “Why is everybody mad about the cups?” He was told: “Because they are made in Israel!”

According to hospital officials, the matter is being investigated and action will be taken.

Yet Liberals still insist Israel is in the wrong. Unbelievable.
