Why Intel has decided to bother with this hot potato is beyond me.
Intel, the world’s largest semiconductor company, announced on Monday that it plans to set up a technological center in Gaza aimed at providing Palestinians with training in the technological information field.
The project is estimated at USD 1 million, and the staff will be comprised mainly of Palestinians.
ANERA Director Peter Gubser said he believes that despite the difficult security situation in Gaza, Intel’s willingness to invest there will encourage other American corporations to follow suit.
Perhaps an infusion of technology is exactly what Gaza's budding Qassam rocket industry needs.
Then again, in 1993 after the "Jericho and Gaza First" Olso accords were signed, Intel donated office furniture to the Palestinian Authority in Jericho.
Its a shame Intel's making the same mistakes again...you would have thought they learned the first time around.
