Compensated emigration on the cheap

By: JoeSettler

It’s estimated that the direct and indirect economic cost to Israel for the 51 day Gaza war was in the area of $3 billion dollars. It’s broken up between military costs, and economic damage.

I only mention that number because of an interesting article I read in Makor Rishon this weekend.

Assaf Gibor interviewed some young men (in their 20s and 30s) in Gaza who wanted to leave. They want to move to Europe, to start new lives and families there, away from Gaza, Hamas and war.

One man gave broke down the costs. He needed $12,000 to make a new life.

$5000 goes to pay the tunnel smugglers to get him out of Gaza and into the Sinai. Another thousand more to get him from the Sinai to Alexandria in Egypt. And two thousand dollars more to pay off a former Syrian woman named Um-Salim who helps Syrians (and now also Gazans) sneak into Europe via boat.

The boat goes out every Thursday with 300 people on it.

Once the boat reaches Italy, and the passengers reach shore (whether by docking or swimming), they head over to the local Red Cross office, they then get sent to jail for a short period of time, and soon after that, they are set free to go look for work and life in Europe.

At $12,000 a person, you could smuggle a million Gazans into Europe, and it would be far cheaper than what the European Union is going to waste in rebuilding Gaza, just so Hamas can get it all destroyed, when they attack Israel again. And the EU wouldn’t even notice the minuscule spike in new immigrants.

You’d need a lot more boats, but you get the idea.

When at least 70% of Arabs want to leave the Land of Israel (including Gaza), relocation is a concept seriously worth exploring.

There are financial solutions that would bring real peace. Just no one wants to talk about them.

    That a lot of effort to go too, Sugar.

    For me nothing is too much trouble when I want something badly enough. 😉

    Blue Jeans??

    Levis or wranglers?

    Buttons or zippers?

    Love challenges.

    As Cowboys in Texas say, ” yawl gotta rope em before yawl can tie em”.

    Was never great at roppen but I was great at wrestling them to the ground then tying em. Called the technique shock an awe.

  5. honeybee Said:

    who wants a horse anybody can ride.


    Do you choose them or do they choose you.

    Truth? I think they choose me but let me believe it was me who did the choosing. I don’t have an ego problem on that score whatever works.

    I’ve been compared to a Mule and a wild Mustang. When I want something I usually get it. I have patience in pursuit, at least I did. 😉

    Story of my life I always chose the wrong women

    Do you choose them or do they choose you. You sound like a ” hand full”, but who wants a horse anybody can ride.

  7. honeybee Said:

    Were you agile enough to avoid the Dentist ????

    Yeah but not for long… Next week 🙁

    honeybee Said:

    The only thing I ever threw at a man was myself !!!!!!!

    Did they catch you? Or you them?
    Story of my life I always chose the wrong women, but it was never boring, I got the bruises to prove it and I don’t mean the physical ones.

    Been away for a few days and have to catch up.

  9. @ yamit82:
    It appears you were right again about barbie as he was again the last to post on a thread ended today with the 2 last posts at the last moment(“Israel’s defense would benefit from converting 10 million people to Judaism”).
    but I have retrieved some of his BS and will shortly continue to expose the buffoon as soon as I can locate his Pauline butt.

  10. @ bernard ross:

    I can’t bring myself to be surprised, sad or sorry. If you want to know what they would do to us if they could see what they do to each other.

    Tanchuma, Shoftim 15: “‘When you go forth to battle against your enemies’ (Deut. 20:1)… What is meant by ‘against your enemies‘? G-d said, ‘Confront them as enemies. Just as they show you no mercy, so should you not show them mercy.’”

    Women are less violent and would be less resisted.

    My ex wife Z”L ( zichrona livracha ) is proof that once again curious is clueless not only about Arabs but especially Jews.

    My wife when she was pissed at me would throw anything handy like pots and frying pans but not just those. I got to be quite agile learning to duck. Sabra Women!! Be careful of them 🙁

  13. CuriousAmerican Said:

    Getting out men means nothing. The Arabs will compensate by multiple marriages, and the breeding will continue.

    YOU HAVE TO GET WOMEN OUT.

    Sorry, Arab women are fat like and ugly.
    Nobody would want them.

  14. CuriousAmerican Said:

    I estimate about $100,000 per female to get them out … LEGALLY

    the 12,000 deal looks better to me than your deal, and what better place than europe where they believe Israel should learn how to live with these killers.

    $5000 goes to pay the tunnel smugglers to get him out of Gaza and into the Sinai. Another thousand more to get him from the Sinai to Alexandria in Egypt. And two thousand dollars more to pay off a former Syrian woman named Um-Salim who helps Syrians (and now also Gazans) sneak into Europe via boat.

    It looks like 10,000 of the 12000 has to do with getting out of gaza to catch the boat in egypt to europe……perhaps the price can be reduced to 2,000 if it can be arranged to leave directly from Gaza, osunds awfully cheap to me.

    and their kids….

  15. Getting out men means nothing. The Arabs will compensate by multiple marriages, and the breeding will continue.

    YOU HAVE TO GET WOMEN OUT.

    PAY THEM THE WOMEN TO LEAVE.

    I estimate about $100,000 per female to get them out … LEGALLY … and set them up in either South America or Arab countries, though I doubt Arab countries will take them.

    Women are less violent and would be less resisted.

  16. Assaf Gibor interviewed some young men (in their 20s and 30s)

    Bring out men will do nothing. The remaing women will be picked up the remaining men who now get to have multiple wives. Will not stop breeding.

    YOU HAVE TO GET THE WOMEN OUT IF YOU WANT BREEDING TO STOP.

    Pay for WOMEN to leave legally, NOT illegally.

    Get them visa, and enough money to set themselves up LEGALLY.

    It will cost more than $12,000 but it will be worth it.

    At $12,000 a person, you could smuggle a million Gazans into Europe, and it would be far cheaper than what the European Union is going to waste in rebuilding Gaza, just so Hamas can get it all destroyed, when they attack Israel again. And the EU wouldn’t even notice the minuscule spike in new immigrants.

    Are you suggesting that the EU pay to have Arabs smuggled into their own continent?

    That is illogical. And yes, the EU would notice if 6 Million Arabs landed in Europe in a short time span.


    THE IDEA IS RIGHT, BUT NOT THE METHOD.

    YES, PAY THEM TO GO, but focus on the women.

    Do not pay to have it done illegally, but pay to have it done legally.

    That will cost more.

    I estimate $100,000 per female to get them out LEGALLY, and to set them up either in Arab countries (not likely) or in South America.
