Who paid for Palestinian violence?

Here is a revelation that is food for thought, from an article in the Beirut Daily Star:
Under such circumstances, a resumption of foreign aid not sufficient to arrest a further deterioration in conditions...Under conflict conditions that have prevailed since September 2000, and despite the doubling of foreign aid to an average of $1 billion annually between 2001 and 2005...
You read it right:
"...doubling of foreign aid to an average of $1 billion annually between 2001 and 2005 "
Think about it please. When the Palestinian Authority refused the Clinton bridging proposals, openly broke its word to abjure violence, funded suicide bombers and sent them to Israel, stepped up incitement and built tunnels to smuggle in arms, the reaction of the donor countries was to double their aid to to the Palestinian Authority. Not content with the intrinsic reward of 72 virgins that awaits every Shahid, the wise men of Washington and Brussels saw fit to subsidize the "Intifada." Of course, none of the funds can be proven to have been used for suicide bombings. They were used, to be sure, to pay the salaries of Palestinian police who fired on Israeli soldiers and of officials like Yasser Arafat, Marwan Barghouti and Mohamed Dahlan who organized and paid for terror, and to pay their travel and office expenses, as they went about drumming up support for the Intifada. They were used to put pita and olives and ful on the tables of Palestinians, so that other resources could be used for the holy task of jihad against Israel.
When Germany declared war against the west in 1914, and again in 1939, Britain instituted a crippling sea blockade, and the allies froze German assets. That is the normal way in war. But the Palestinians have conducted a war deluxe, funded by European and American taxpayers.
While it might have been thought, in the first year of the Intifada, that this generosity would prop up the position of moderates in Palestinian society, it should have been clear very soon that this was not the case. Nonetheless, the West continued to subsidize suicide bombings and terror and incitement until the Hamas was elected, and the PNA officially declared itself in favor of terror and genocide. Then the funding stopped for a bit, and it is now transmuted into another mechanism, that unofficially provided the same funding, for peaceful purposes, so that Palestinians can continue their suicide bombing on a full stomach. We would not want malnourished suicide bombers, would we?
Egypt was the gift of the Nile. The Palestinian violence that began in 2000 was the gift of foreign donors. Yes, every time a suicide bomber exploded in an Israeli super market, every time a rocket killed a kid in Sderot, American and European taxpayers had a part. The suicide bombers, the rockets, the incitement on television, all this was made possible through their generosity.  Who paid for Palestinian violence? Who  is paying for it now? You did, dear American and European friends.
