How do You Say "Chutzpuh" in Arabic?

Remember a few months back, when Israel gave the Palestinians in Gaza their dream of a Jew-free society? Remember there was some controversy over millions of dollars worth of greenhouses that produced hundreds of millions of dollars of insect-free produce for both export and domestic use? Remember that instead of destroying the greenhouses that were built and run by Israeli entrepreneurs, Jewish philanthropists paid 14 million dollars to donate these greenhouses to the Palestinians so they could build a productive economy? Remember how some of the greenhouses were trashed in the post ethnic-cleansing celebrations?

Well guess what. Despite their ingenuity in bomb building and death dealing, the Palestinians aren't having much success replicating Israeli results in vegetable growth. What's their solution? According to this article, "Palestinians Boot Jews, Now Beg Them for Help", from WorldNetDaily they are asking for help from the accursed Zionist Crusader pigs, uh, I mean from the Israelis.
Earlier this month, the Palestinians now running the greenhouses reportedly told the Israeli-Palestinian Economic Cooperation Fund they failed in their efforts to grow bug-free produce.

Now the Palestinian owners have asked the United States Agency for International Development, which has been involved in reconstruction efforts in Gaza, to hire former Jewish Gaza greenhouse owners as consultants for their declining vegetable businesses.
What has the response been from the former greenhouse owners?
Asked if she would serve as a consultant for the new Palestinian owners of her former greenhouses, Tucker said, "Probably not. We see the terror coming out of Gaza, coming out of the neighborhood I used to live in, and it's just horrible. Hamas has taken over different parts of Gush Katif and are firing rockets into Israel. I am not saying the Palestinian farmers are involved, but it seems they are not doing enough to stop the terror."

Haderi, who says he already has been asked by U.S. AID to consult on greenhouse technology, said, "I am still thinking about it. It's a very difficult decision."
No, I'm not gloating over this turn of events. I am hoping that the Palestinians use this experience as a "teachable moment" and begin learning how to live in a peaceful society next to Israel. But I predict that they'll fall back on their old, yet highly successful trick of blaming the Jews. That one works every time.

I felt pulling out of Gaza was a mistake, fearing it would become a base for Hamas to further their aim of wiping Israel off the map. It happened and for a while I had some hope that maybe the Palestinians would take this opportunity to better themselves but it doesn’t look like this will happen.
