Arabisk Nihilisme i Gaza

Da Israel begik etnisk udrensning mod de jødiske landsbyer i Gaza-striben var et af de få lyspunkter (for araberne, vel at mærke), at en gruppe amerikanske rigmænd købte mere end 3.200 højteknologiske drivhuse af de fordrevne jøder for en klatskilling (14m $). Da de var ved at blive fordrevet var der ikke rigtigt så meget at handle med.

For araberne i Gaza-striben, derimod, var det en fænomenal handel. Ikke bare fik de som oprindeligt aftalt jorden gratis, de fik nu også adskillige tusinde drivhuse, der på årsbasis producerede for mere end 100 millioner $ grøntsager oven i hatten - igen helt gratis.

Pr mellemøstlig sædvane skal misundelsen imidlertid spille ind, så siden den etniske udrensning har forskellige arabiske bander ødelagt flere hundrede af drivhusene:


The Palestinian Company for Economic Development, which is in charge of thousands of greenhouses that used to belong to Morag and other settlements in Gush Katif, said the attack, which took place on Friday, was the latest in a series that began almost immediately after the settlements were evacuated.

The company revealed that hundreds of greenhouses and other agricultural installations have been sabotaged over the past few months, expressing its outrage over the recurring phenomenon. The company issued an urgent appeal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and Interior Minister Said Siam to intervene to halt the attacks on the lands belonging to the former settlements. ..

Friday's attack on the greenhouses, the biggest since the Israeli withdrawal, was carried out by dozens of gunmen belonging to a number of families living in the area. PA security forces opened fire at the attackers, killing 21-year-old Rami al-Masri and wounding four others.

The security forces managed to regain control over parts of the greenhouses, PA security sources told The Jerusalem Post. They said the attackers caused heavy damage to most of the greenhouses before leaving the area.


Lignende ting er sket før i historien. Iraks Hængende Haver forfaldt efter den arabiske erobring i 630erne. Nordafrika var Romerrigets kornkammer indtil den arabiske invasion omtrent samtidigt, og Cyrenaica var kendt som Middelhavet Have indtil den arabiske Banu Hilal-stamme invaderede området i 1000-tallet. Ingen lader til at lære lektien. Måske undtagen jøderne i Israel. Bemærk hvordan Israel er en del grønnere end omgivelserne:
