Beyond cheek and arrogance
I receive news and analysis from various Israeli sources by email, and i got this a few hours ago, and thought i'd share it. It's a sponsored advertisement sent to me by Debkafile:

FIDF vows to continue to support Israel's brave soldiers at this fateful time

In response to the endless rocket-fire that has been raining down on Israel's civilians, a joint operation of the IDF and the Israeli Security Agency brought about the targeted killing of the head of Hamas' military wing. Simultaneously, the IDF has launched Operation Pillar of Defense and mobilized its troops across the country.

The brave soldiers of the IDF are always able and ready to carry out the mission of defending the Jewish homeland. We are in constant communication with the IDF and responding directly to their needs by distributing toiletry kits, snack packages, undergarment kits, field towelettes for basic hygiene, and “break from the battlefield” kits. You can help the soldiers by providing any of the above wellbeing needs, as well as by donating to the SPIRIT R&R Program for combat units and the DIGNITY Program for soldiers in-need.

Our soldiers are facing difficult and strenuous times, and their wellbeing needs will continue to grow as this operation continues.

FIDF is the official organization raising funds in the United States on behalf of the IDF for its soldiers.

To stand by our soldiers and help, donate any of the following items

Snack packages - $18

Undergarment kits - $22

Toiletry kits - $36

Field towelettes for basic hygiene (a package of 10) - $50

“Break from the battlefield” kits - $720 (Each kit includes an LCD TV, cable box, speaker, supplies for hot beverages, and board games)'

___________________________________________________

Can you believe this shit? Friends of the Israeli Defence Force are asking for donations for these items? Besides the fact that the IDF's annual expenditure on defence is $15 billion (figure courtesy of the Institute for National Security Studies, Tel Aviv), not to mention monetary support from America of $3.7 billion (for the year 2012), to ask people to cough up $50 for 10 fucking bum wipes is beyond fucking cheeky. Fucking TVs and speakers and shit? Dafuq? Talk about priorities.

WTF

RE: Beyond cheek and arrogance
It would be very interesting to know how much revenue this brings in and if it goes on bum whips and TV’s

Says nothing about it on the web site Dodgy

RE: Beyond cheek and arrogance
That's not surprising. I've had a look round the web and can't find any figures for this either. However, you can see a rundown on what the donated money has paid for in 2011: http://www.fidf.org/page.aspx?pid=285 there are some financial and policy documents available to read at the bottom of the page (pdf), although i haven't checked them out myself yet.

btw, whist i can't give a link to my exact email, here's the link from the email: http://www.fidf.org/pages/support-our-brave-soldiers

good point sj... the world does fuck all when Palestinians have to resort to eating grass out of desperation because they're being starved, not unlike how the nazis began starving the jews in Warsaw (see parallels here: http://www.arabworldbooks.com/arab/hutcheson.htm ), but as long as the soldiers get their tissues and television...

RE: Beyond cheek and arrogance
I have a very strong feeling that any time money changes hands by cash or by the mail, there are some hands in the mix that are cramming a part of that money into their own pockets.

This sounds a lot to me like it may have been written by someone (or a group of someones) trying to set up a stream of money so that they can syphon(sp?) off a portion for themselves.

There is just nothing sacrosanct when it comes to people lining their own pockets.

I love to read stories about when people get caught stealing - especially if they are stealing from little old ladies who can hardly afford to spend any money but are sending money to causes they believe are worthy.

I especially love to read about postal workers who don't deliver a portion of their mail but instead stash it at home and then open it up in the middle of the night looking for cash. They deserve to be given to the mob and let the mob rip the bastards apart.

well, it's not as if isreal is in dire straits... with their annual income, foreign aid from the us... and the donations they collect from fund raising operations... they do alright.

but, to be honest... i stopped caring about the whole isreal-palestine issue a while ago... if they can't be bothered to settle their own differences then i can't be bothered to interrupt the porn streams long enough to notice.
