Now that is a Super Sunday

Federations across the land are super jealous of the fact that international donors are promising $7.4 billion dollars to the Palestinians. That is a lot of money. According to NPR's Morning Edition:
Palestinian supporters raise $7 billion at a donors' conference in Paris. The money, pledged by the international community, will help create a Palestinian state. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice calls the conference the "last hope" to salvage the Palestinian government from bankruptcy.
This infusion of cash may help the government of Palestine pull its act together or it may just get lost in the bureaucratic system set up by the PA. Time will tell. But still this is serious money.

While no one really expects much from these new rounds of talks, the international community is putting some power (and money) where their collective mouths are...
