    That’s the Syrian appeal for $6.5bn aid sorted then.

  2. Why do't they help their fellow Arabs, who live in poverty?

  3. Anonymous says:

    Is the Arab, living in the PA, Abu Mazen? After all, Arafat left $3b. Should Mazen have less? "Schnorring" by Arabs is a good profession.

  4. Basha Kline says:

    You know, an arab can only wear one schmuttah at a time and stand in one spot at any one time – same as everyone, so how can they stand by and watch their co-horts live in schmutz?

  5. And yet, Bill Gates gives more to the world's needy than all of them combined. At least Gates completes the pillars of faith that are truly important.
