Do People in Israel's Gov't profit from the Disengagement? Sadly, people do.

I wish I could say I was surprised. Corruption is one thing. But corruption that could destabilize your own country and will probably result in innocent deaths? Aren't there some lines you don't cross? Apparently not.

Eival Giladi, in charge of Disengagement, for the Prime Minister, Maintains a Personal Financial Stake in the Palestinian Economy in Gaza
by David Bedein.

As head of the coordination and strategy team in the Prime Minister's Office, HaArtez on June 4th, 2005 described Giladi as "one of the architects of the disengagement plan. Giladi is the thinking man in the Sharon administration, the behind-the-scenes advisor to the advisor and ultimate mystery emissary, Dov Weissglass".

Giladi, meanwhile, has found a way to supplement the meager income of an Israeli civil servant.
Giladi has been named as the pioneer of a business venture for Palestinians in Gaza: The Portland Trust.

Giladi has been placed in charge of the Portland Trust's $500 million business development fund, which would help Palestinians moved 150,000 housing units in place of the Katif homes and farms that Giladi is about to destroy.
