1. Thats only a FRACTION of the story
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (07.15.14)
Of eye watering blatant corruption, BILLIONS in 'lost and unaccounted' aid money, proceeds from arms smuggling to terrorists in Sinai and Jordan, money laundering - they have bled Gaza DRY until there is nothing left
2. So, why is the world still sending money?
tiki ,   belgium   (07.15.14)
Don't their own citizens deserve it more than terrorists leaders from Gaza (and let's not forget Abbas). Scandalous!!!!!!!!
3. Corrupt Arabs
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.15.14)
Does this come as a surprise to anyone? It shouldn't. Corruption and graft are second nature to Arabs. Second to violence, that is.

6. Hamas Millionaires
Rick S. ,   USA   (07.15.14)
I've had my suspicions about where all the money is going. This article certainly answers many of my questions. Haniyeh & Mashsal both look like con artists who have no problem stealing from their people. No wonder they are opposed to any accord with Israel. They are getting richer by the day at the expense of their people.
7. no wonder God is so pissed at those who try to destroy Israe
goog ,   merica   (07.15.14)
It's just became cleared why he is going to come from heaven to fight them himself, killing all by the way. Not only are they terrorist but crooks too. We all know what lairs they are, which of the ten commandments don't they break? whose blood do they not rejoice from spilling? Oh snap little israel is going to rule the whole of the ME maybe the whole world.

Jose Rey del mar ,   El Salvador   (07.15.14)
Don't forget Suha Arafat in Paris. Talking about corruption in such a poor and troubled country.
10. Compensation $$$$$ from Hamas.
Roland ,   london England   (07.15.14)
For destruction over the years for lives los,t wrecked, and disrupted from their leaders Swiss Bank Accounts.Since this is a nebulous figure,confiscation of their leaders assets should be well in order for those who put in claims.
11. Maybe if they resurrected "Che" the Useful Leftist Idiots of
tom ,   tel aviv   (07.16.14)
the Western World would throw themselves back at him, as the beacon of their misguided narcissistic self righteousness, but for the moment it seems, the "Palestinians" are hard to beat....So they'll keep on receiving the money.

15. The proof
Deborah ,   Jerusalem   (07.17.14)
You dont need ynet's numbers tomsee how much they steel. The inteligent people can see their character asking their people to stay where the arms are hidden to use them as shields, their jihad is in their vacations while they send their own to kill
16. PLO
Anon ,   AnonAlso   (07.16.14)
It was also known that Arafat and the rest of the PLO boys were stealing huge amounts of aid money. How did so many of them become multimillionaires?

Birdi ,   Israel   (07.22.14)
Did it ever cross your mind that the Gazan citizens are petrified of their leaders?
20. Hammas fight not for wealth, their fight for Allah
nining ,   jakarta, indonesia   (07.22.14)
Hammas fight their land is the fact. They r not looking for wealth. They want the right of nation is admitted by all nation. If hammas doesnt fight, whose gonna fight for palestine rights of nation?
21. hamas
Dr. Mary Shafir ,   Israel   (07.22.14)
If the world leaders give millions to Hamas again, Hamas will understand that firing rockets at Israel is a good business.
22. #20 you didn't read this article
Deborah ,   Jerusalem   (07.23.14)
Please for your own good SEE reality and don't follow terrorists leaders if you love your wife (or wives) and children. Allah doesn't want them to be used as shields. While your leaders are getting rich
