Hurricane Katrina destroys New Orleans, causing many deaths, and billions of dollars in damages. Recovery estimates reach the hundred billions, and may continue to rise even higher. Israel’s delegation in Washington prudently decides not to raise the issue of resettlement costs (a measly one billion) of Gaza evacuees.
Meanwhile, Bush signs off on a 100 billion dollar plan to put four guys on the moon for 7 days in 2018?
