I ask because the rumors (at the time of Arafat’s death) were that Arafat had hundreds of millions$ stashed in Swiss bank accounts. His widow was given a “severance” package that was quite hefty. The real question is: the Palestinian Authority has been given billions, by the EU and the USA-where is all the money? When I see pictures of rioting palestinian youths (in the Gaza strip) I am struck by how poor the place is…everything is run down and broken, and a lot of these kids are in rags. So where DID all of this money wind up?
