PARIS (AFP) -- President Francois Hollande announced on Thursday an 11-million-euro ($14.8 million) aid package to the besieged Gaza Strip, where an Israeli military offensive has left more than 700 people dead.

An adviser to Hollande said the humanitarian aid, eight million of which will be given to the Palestinian Authority and the remainder to UN bodies and NGOs working in Gaza, was approved after a meeting with non-governmental organizations working in the strife-torn region.

The NGOs "highlighted the gravity of the situation, the scale of the humanitarian needs of the civilian population and the difficulty of humanitarian workers in getting to the victims," Hollande's office said.

France is an ally of Israel and has historically maintained strong economic and political ties.

Maybe france should first stop supplying israel with money and weapons of murder before sending blankets to cover the dead in Gaza! Too little too late.

''11-million-euro ($14.8 million) aid package to the besieged Gaza Strip'', for more concrete and steel bars for protective tunnels. To protect the Hamas military and political wings. And to embezzle from the poor homeless Arabs to buy luxury homes in Qatar. Who is kidding who?

France is a stupid country. How about spending those 11 million euros on fixing the streets and buildings damaged by Arab rioters in the Yvelines, Sarcelles, and compnesate their owners for the burnt cars by Arab rioters all over France?

France should use the money on paying the benefits on its unemployed masses and to fix roads, streets, building, and to compensate owners of burnt cars by Arab riots in Sarcelles, Yvelines, and all across the country. It should pay the victims of recent murders of Jews by Arabs in France.

France should make the funds available only on the condition that Gaza disarm.

You cheap-skate,lily-livered,low-life scum-bag,Hollande! You think that a handout of EU 11 million in "aid",1 month too late & AFTER THE FACT of 67yrs of Israeli-Zionist brutality,racism & MASSIVELY DISPROPORTIONATE MILITARY ATTACKS on ALL Palestine is going to let you off the moral,ethical hook? Sacre Bleu,you helped drive that hook DEEPER into Palestine's neck! Give me Hollande's BLOOD-money check & I'll shove it right up his cowardly,Nazi-arse-lickin'French "derriere"! SCUM-BLOOD-MONEY!
