CAIRO (Ma'an) -- The Organization of Islamic Cooperation summit in Cairo this week will recommend its members donate to a financial "safety net" for Palestine, according to a draft statement ahead of the conference.

At a preparatory meeting of senior officials on Sunday, a statement was prepared calling on Islamic nations to donate to Palestine under the OIC banner.

The funds will go towards Palestine's strategic plan to develop the city of Jerusalem, which was approved by the group in August 2012, according to the statement published on PA news site Wafa.

The Islamic Summit, which will be held on Feb. 6-7 in Cairo, is also set to hold a session on Israeli settlement activities in Palestine.

Last year, the Arab League last year pledged its own "safety net" to cover around $100 million in monthly expenses of the PA, when Israel seized tax revenues in the aftermath of the UN vote for Palestinian statehood.

- IF the Organization of Islamic Cooperation summit wants to "donate to a financial safety net for Palestine", - THEN all that is required is to donate, rather than to meet in Cairo and recommend that members donate, - AND Israel will happily forget about Palestine's government collapsing, while using Palestinian taxes to pay Palestinian electric & water debts !!!

Since we are in the process of annexing the State of Palestine, the OIC's money for a planned Palestinian financial "safety net" won't amount to a hill of beans for any Palestinian use in Jerusalem. The OIC would be so much better off spending in Jordan/Palestine. J/P is doing what is right by absorbing Palestinian refugees fleeing from hell in Syria (hundreds of thousands so far). The State of Palestine will never be using any of its monies for developing Jerusalem for its own sake.
