You know I know just how the poor old corpulent and caring King of Qatar must be feeling after his very generous (this Cat thought) offer of paying to rebuild all sorts of bits of Palestine that the Israelis knocked down and blew up recently was rejected by the Israeli Prime Minister, and that rejection was odd because at first he sounded interested in taking the money – quite naturally of course, free money these days is hard to come by isn’t it?
Just think, if the Prime Minister had said “no thanks” to the American’s offer of paying for a missile shield, the average American tax payer, who quite rightly, has no interest in building a missile shield in that part of the Middle East would be just a little less financially hard pressed currently.
Actually I too have been trying to do my bit for peace in the world and recently spent a not inconsiderable amount of my ‘hard earned’ paying for translations of the Koran into Yiddish and the Torah into Arabic ready for the newly translated versions to be distributed to the warring fractions of the Middle East only to be told to shove them “somewhere dark!”
Forgive this simple Cat and the large and learned monarch of Qatar for believing that by being kind we could both show people that there is a better way other than violence. Not only that if the Israelis didn’t like what the money was spent on they could soon get rid of it couldn’t they with a few well placed as well as some disastrously place missiles aren’t they always blowing up something or someone in Palestine anyway?.
Frankly I don’t get it do you? The chubby and jovial King of Qatar and The Cat offering Israelis something for nothing and they turn it down, I think it goes against the religion doesn’t it?
