As we can now call the World Bank – it’s running interference for Hamas, and the Brit expat who covered up the UN’s Dollars for Saddam fraud is cheerleading Wolfowitz’s attackers.
The Bank just took time from sandbagging Wolfowitz to condemn Israel for defending itself:
The Palestinian economy can’t recover unless Israel dismantles a network of obstacles that has carved up the West Bank into a dozen enclaves and restricted Palestinian access to more than half the territory, the World Bank said in an exceptionally harsh report Wednesday.
Israel’s web of physical and administrative barriers to movement goes at times beyond Israeli security needs and is aimed at boosting Jewish settlements, at the expense of the Palestinian population, the bank said.
The bankers know perfectly well that if Hamas and Hezbollah recognize the State of Israel and stop launching terrorist attacks on it, Israelis will be only too happy to stop sending their kids to flush out murderers from the West Bank hellhole.
But that won’t make the Palestinians any richer, since they’re as corrupt as the World Bank.
Speaking of which, here’s Soros’s front man (my ellipsis):
Mark Malloch Brown spoke Monday to a crowded auditorium at the World Bank’s headquarters, warning that the bank’s mission was “hugely at risk” as long as Paul Wolfowitz remained its president…
Mr. Malloch Brown…was until last year Kofi Annan’s deputy at the United Nations. In that position, he distinguished himself by spinning away the $100 billion Oil for Food scandal as little more than a blip in the U.N.’s good work, and one that had little to do with Mr. Annan himself.
…Mr. Malloch Brown would almost surely be a leading candidate to replace Mr. Wolfowitz should he step down.
The bank presidency would be a neat coup for Sir Mark, and not just because the post has heretofore gone to an American.
He also stands for everything Mr. Wolfowitz opposes, beginning with the issue of corruption. Consider Mr. Malloch Brown’s defense of the U.N.’s procurement practices.
“Not a penny was lost from the organization,” he insisted last year, following an audit of the U.N.’s peacekeeping procurement by its Office of Internal Oversight Services. In fact, the office (could not account for) $310 million out of a budget of $1.6 billion, and who knows what the auditors missed.
If Wolfowitz is forced out, the President should stop handing US taxpayers’ dollars to Terror’s Bankers.
