Their Arab brothers should fund Palestinian Hamasistan, not us
The United States Congress has blocked nearly $200m in aid for the Palestinians, threatening projects such as food aid, health care, and support for efforts to build a functioning state.
Yeah, because only the United States can fund “food aid” and “health care” for terrorist monsters! Hamas has plenty of Arab brothers, flush with petrodollars. I’m sure somebody else can pick up the slack. If the actual goal is to build a “functioning state.”
But guess what? Here’s a little fact the New York Times won’t mention. The “Palestinian people” already have a functioning state. It’s called “Jordan.”
Mahmoud Abbas and his Hamas cronies aren’t interested in “peace,” not in the conventional sense anyway. Their idea of “peace” is the silence we’ll hear from the U.N. when the last Jew is stuffed into an oven. Why are we sending our tax dollars to help terrorists destroy Israel?
There have been persistent demands in Congress to withhold up to $600m – the average amount given by the US in bilateral assistance to the West Bank and Gaza every year since 2008 – in the next financial year over the issue.
Good. There are 22 member states in the Arab League. Let ‘em pass the hat. I’m sure they can come up with $600 million. If, you know, they’re committed to peace.
What does this mean? That 38% are Israel haters (Politico) A slim plurality of Americans believe Israel’s actions against Hamas
