Oil Embargo

What goes around comes around. Payback is a b**ch. No matter how you say it, the principle is the same - you reap what you sow. The Paleosimians are about to find that out the hard way. Much like the way their sponsors in the Middle East have done to the US in imposing oil embargos in the past, now the Paleosimians are getting the same treatment ... but for a good reason this time: they can’t pay their bills so they get no gas. This should slow down some of their ability to run around bombing and killing Israelis. The pressure is mounting on these savages. Stay tuned. This could be highly entertaining ....

Israelis Stop Fuel Supply to Palestinians
May 10, 2006, 9:35 AM EDT

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP)—The Israeli company that provides fuel to the Palestinian areas is cutting off supplies due to growing debts, Israeli and Palestinian officials said Wednesday, a move that could deepen a humanitarian crisis in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The head of the Palestinian petrol commission, Mujahid Salame, said he expected gasoline supplies to run out by Thursday. “If this happens, there will be a humanitarian crisis,” he said.

He said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was in touch with American and European diplomats in hopes of pressuring Israel to ensure the flow of fuel to the Palestinian areas. Dor Energy has been the sole provider of gasoline to the Palestinian areas since interim peace agreements were signed in the mid-1990s. Company officials declined comment.

Salame said the Palestinians owe about $26 million to Dor, but he accused the company of taking a political decision aimed at punishing the Hamas-led Palestinian government. Israel has stopped about $55 million in monthly tax transfers to the Palestinians, demanding that the militant Islamic group renounce violence and recognize the Jewish state. The tax money has been placed in escrow.

Last month, Israel used this money to pay Palestinian debts owed to government-run companies like the Israeli electric company. But Asaf Shariv, a spokesman for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, said Israel would “absolutely not” bail out the Palestinians this time. Dor has cut off supplies twice before this year—only to be paid at the last minute by the Palestinians.

Israeli economic pressure, along with a cutoff in aid by Western donors, has left the Hamas government unable to pay its bills and thousands of civil servants without salaries. Western powers agreed Tuesday to restore humanitarian aid to the Palestinian areas, as long as the money doesn’t reach Hamas. But it remained unclear when the money will begin flowing.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
