Furious Palestinians turn against their own

THE Arab Spring appears to have reached the Palestinian territories, with growing protests directed at the high cost of living.

But, as with other protests in the Arab world over the past two years, the protests are broadening.

Israel's military occupation of the West Bank and the performance of the Palestinian Authority are also being targeted.

While most demonstrations in recent weeks have been peaceful, on Saturday night one took on a more destructive tone.

At a major intersection in Ramallah, near Jerusalem, youths blocked roads with rocks and set fire to overturned garbage bins, mattresses and piles of wood.

The trigger for the demonstrations has been the inability of the PA to pay full salaries to its 150,000 employees this month.



A major target of the protests is PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who is more popular among Western leaders than among many of his people. Mr Fayyad, a trusted point of contact for leaders such as the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is blamed for cutbacks to entitlements and rising prices.

The former economist with the World Bank and International Monetary Fund has overseen a crackdown on inefficiencies and corruption in the PA. He has been praised by the IMF for making changes to the Palestinian economy, just as criticism of him has grown among Palestinians.


So, the Arab Spring has finally hit Palestine, with the Palestinian people rising up against their Prime Minister, who just so happens to be deeply involved with, and fully trusted by Western Nations, as well as being involved with the World Bank. He has altered the Palestinian economy which which seems to have angered the people.

Perhaps this Arab Spring will be beneficial for the people of Palestine, because as it looks now, their Prime Minister sounds like a puppet for the Western World...

Thanks for fixing it. Sucks that it doesn't show the full story though (well, for me anyway).

Here is the picture in the article, displaying Palestinian people 'rioting:'
