The Palestinian government are finding it almost impossible to scrape together the $100 million that the EU and America no longer send their way. Strangely enough, the Saudi's, Syrians, Iranians and all the other loudmouth regimes that constantly bewail their plight are flinty-eyed when it comes to coughing up actual dollars for them. They pledge fifty million bucks here, twenty million bucks there, but the money never seems to appear in the bank! Weird!
But the funny thing is, there's one thing you can always get the Saudi's to part with huge sums for- a stupendously large mosque. Virtually every European country including Britain has had planning permission sought for stupidly large mosques. The one in London is planned for Newham, a few hundred yards from the main London 2012 Olympic site.
This kind of penis-extension building is meant to demonstrate in physical terms what every muslim all over the world is programmed to say- that islam is the worlds fastest growing religion. Sadly, its more likely to turn out to be what the rest of the world has come to associate with muslims, especially arab ones. There will be a lot of talk, a lot of posturing, a lot of 'bigging up', then NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.
And by the way, muslims- there are 2.1 billion Catholics in the world. That means there are a billion more Catholics than muslims. Woe betide if you should ever stir THAT beast.
