Bush plans overhaul of US foreign aid system Washington Financial Times
President George W. Bush’s administration is drawing up plans to carry out the biggest overhaul of the US foreign aid apparatus in more than 40 years in an attempt to assert more political control over international assistance, according to officials and aid experts.
The proposed reorganisation could lead to a takeover by the State Department of the independent US Agency for International Development. USAID was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, managing aid programmes, disaster relief and post-war reconstruction totalling billions of dollars each year.
Stop funding terror, like Bolton said in his speech last night to ZOA. We paid 22% of the cost of that UN map of Palestine sans Israel, WE PAY 22% OF ANNAN'S SALARY. Fire the spineless snake. He has more blood on his hands than a bariatric surgeon.
This is not a conflict between two sides with legitimate grievances and competing interests. It is a conflict, at its core, between a nation that asks only to live in peace with its neighbors and a racist, hate-filled group of nations and peoples who seek only the destruction, the annihilation, the extermination of all Jews from the Middle East.
Joe Farah weighs in on No Jews allowed;
I'm still waiting for the international outrage.
I'm still waiting for my colleagues in the news media to jump on the story.
I'm still waiting for Americans to recognize the way the story illustrates the root cause of conflict in the Middle East.
As I prepare this column for publication, not one other news agency in the world has reported on it.
Why is this story so significant?
Because it so perfectly illustrates why we continue to have conflict in the Middle East between Arabs and Israelis.

UPDATE: Abu Mazen's bloodlusty days go back a long way...........Abbas and Arafat will always have Munich.
Naomi Ragen shares Information about the PLO's new head, who funded the Munich Massacre of Israel's Olympic athletes. From pioneering attorney Nitsana Darshan Leitner,
Its no wonder that, as the NY Times editorial suugests, the sympathetic Palestinian character in the Munich film"sounded like Abu Mazen," -- it probably was Abu Mazen, see below press release from 2003. Abu Mazen funded the Black
September attack on the Israeli team.
ISRAELI CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP ACCUSES ABU MAZEN OF HAVING FUNDED 1972 MUNICH OLYMPIC MASSACRE, CALLS FOR PROBE OF PALESTINIAN PM's ROLE
Letter to German and American Leaders Alleges that New P.A. Prime Minister Financed "Black September" Terror Attack Which Killed 11 Athletes Including U.S. Citizen
The Israeli civil rights group Shurat Hadin has announced a campaign to convince U.S. and German law enforcement agencies to open an investigation into the role of newly-appointed Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Abu Mazen in the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany.
On September 5, 1972, a squad of heavily armed Palestinian terrorists attacked the dormitories housing the Israeli Olympic team and murdered a coach and weight-lifter David Berger, who was an American citizen. The terrorists then took nine Israeli athletes hostage. While the terrorists and their hostages were transported to the airport, the German police botched a rescue attempt and all nine of the athletes were murdered.
The director of Shurat Hadin, attorney Nitsana
Darshan-Leitner, sent letters
this week to U.S. President George W. Bush and German
Schroeder containing new information indicating that that
Abu Mazen (whose
given name is Mahmoud Abbas) provided financing to the PLO's
terrorist group, in order to carry out the notorious
terrorist attack at the
1972 Olympic Games.
While recent newsmedia profiles of Abu Mazen have
Palestinian leader's alleged "terrorism-free" personal
history, the Shurat
Hadin charges that in 1972, Abu Mazen, then a high ranking
provided financing for the terrorist attacks being
perpetrated by Yassir
Arafat's PLO faction Fatah under the nom de guerre Black
Shurat Hadin is basing its information on published statements by the terrorist who masterminded the the Munich attack, Mohammed Daoud Oudeh ("Abu Daoud"). In his French-language autobiography, Palestine: From Jerusalem to Munich, Abu Daoud describes the role of Abu Mazen in providing the funds to carry out the Black September Olympic attack.
Furthermore, in an interview with journalist Don Yaeger of Sports Illustrated Magazine in August 2002, Abu Daoud reiterated his charges that Abu Mazen supplied the money for the deadly attack. In his memoir Abu Daoud states: "After Oslo in 1993, Abu Mazen went to the White House Rose Garden for a photo op with Arafat, President Bill Clinton and Israel's Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.
"Do you think that ... would have been possible if the Israelis had known that Abu Mazen was the financier of our operation?" Abu Daoud writes. "I doubt it." Today, the Bush Administration seeks a Palestinian negotiating partner "uncompromised by terror," yet last year Abu Mazen met in Washington with Secretary of State Colin Powell."
Abu Daoud's allegations have been confirm by sources within the Palestinian Authority, according to Shurat Hadin.
Attorney Darshan-Leitner's letter to President Bush states: "Under your leadership the United States has declared that it will no longer maintain contacts with those tainted by terrorist pasts. It appears that the new Palestinian leader, on whom the United States and Israel are now pinning their hopes, was also involved in murderous attacks perpetrated by the PLO's Black September. If proven true, Abu Mazen's role in the brutal killing of the Israeli athletes and American citizen David Berger must preclude his involvement in the negotiations between the United States, Israel and her Arab neighbors."
Both Germany and Israel still have the legal jurisdiction to prosecute those involved in the Munich Olympic killings.
