Palestinian PM denied Gaza entry (BBC News)
« on: December 14, 2006, 14:06:18 »
I don't know much about the situation, but... but since when
do you carry tens of millions of dollars with you ? Isn't there
any way of doing a transfert (electonic or else) ?

Israel will allow Palestinian PM Ismail Haniya to return to Gaza from Egypt
but without tens of millions in donations, Egyptian and Israeli sources say.

The money would be left on the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing, they said.

Likely the money will go through one of the tunnels after paying off the owners!

Palestinian PM allowed to return

Quote
Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya has returned to Gaza
from Egypt after being stranded at the border for several hours amid chaotic scenes.

But he crossed the border at Rafah without tens of millions of dollars
 in donations, which Israel says go to the funding of "terrorist operations".

The money was left on the Egyptian side with Mr Haniya's aides.
