NAZARETH, Israel (AFP) — The din of earthmovers and a cloud of dust rise over Mount Precipice as workers scramble to get ready for a papal visit that Israel hopes will bring in tourist dollars and rave reviews.

The Jewish state is pumping some 10 million dollars (7.5 million euros) into preparations for Pope Benedict XVI’s May 11-15 visit to the Holy Land that will bring tens of thousands of pilgrims to Israel.

It also hopes the papal trip will help polish Israel’s international image in the wake of the Gaza war …

“We are working under a lot of pressure to finish it in time,” says Ishai Soker of the non-profit Jewish National Fund, owned by the World Zionist Organisation, which is financing the project together with local and national authorities …

“Many people, including among the clergy, were not pleased with the visit coming at this time,” says Odeh, referring to calls for Benedict to shun Israel to protest the war on the Gaza Strip that killed more than 1,400 Palestinians …

The Sound of Money Flowing Out Of Your Pockets Towards "Israel"

February 28, 2007

EDITOR’S NOTE: Those who followed the Israeli massacre on Lebanon this past summer may recall Miri Eisin as the the very sincere young woman who relayed how regretful the Israelis were that women and children were “accidentally” killed during the Israeli bombing of homes in the civilian populated village of Qana. Mrs. Eisin has now returned to announce that “Israel” is seeking for the US to pick up the tab for their Kabbalistic 33 day-long slaughter of innocent civilians in Lebanon.

“Israel” is also looking for more cash to cover the cost of removing “Jewish settlers” from the West Bank land they illegally occupied. I was under the impression that we already paid for that. Apparently it wasn’t enough. The “settlers” must need new swimming pools, automatic weapons or something else much more important than relief for Hurricane Katrina victims, body armor for US troops in Iraq, or food and clothing for the growing poverty class in the U.S.

Israel negotiates new US military aid deal

JERUSALEM (AFP) – An Israeli delegation has left for the United States to negotiate a new aid deal from the Jewish state’s main ally and donor, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s spokeswoman said Monday.

“A delegation headed by Bank of Israel chief Stanley Fischer left Tel Aviv overnight for Washington to negotiate a new deal to fix the amount of annual military aid from the United States for Israel for the next decade,” Miri Eisin told AFP.

Israeli officials are also hoping for extra aid to compensate for the cost of last summer’s 34-day Lebanon war and the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in August-September 2005, she said.

Israel withdrew troops and settlers from Gaza after a 38-year occupation, but it continues to be an occupying power under international law as it controls borders and de facto daily life in the coastal strip.

The existing military aid accord between Israel and the United States took effect in 1998 and expires this year.

“Military aid granted to Israel by the United States is currently 2.4 billion dollars per year, and is devoted entirely to purchases of equipment and armaments and to research projects in the US,” Eisin said.

The Israeli delegation also includes officials from the finance and foreign affairs ministries and the army, she said.
