Why in G-d's name are the American people being forced to pay for the arms, education, and munitions of our avowed enemy. Why are we giving another 150 million on top of the previous billions to Islamic jihad. The is aiding terror states. This is inviolation of the Bush Doctrine. This blood money will be used to wage war on the west. Poll: Palestinians Support Rocket Attacks and Want Peace Talks to End What the f**k is wrong with our leaders?
Condi makes Neville Chamberlain look positively Churchillian. In yesterday's Atlas post, CONDI"S LETHAL LEGACY I wrote,
Condi has nothing on Iran as they race to build a nuclear arsenal. No plan. Gotz. She's got nothing on the NORKS as they race to nuclear arm Syria and Iran and who the hell knows who else. She's got nothing ............so her leagcy will be the funding and arming of Islamic jihad under the auspices of a bloody, deadly, "peace" process. This headbanging has gone on long enough. How many Jewish kids, rabbis, believers have to die before the deadly reality of not backing Israel but backing our mortal enemies sets in?
The Jews are not the problem. Nuclear armed Islamic regimes are the most frightening of all possible futures.
The US is transferring $150 million in aid to the Palestinian government in coming days, the Palestinian Prime Minister announced Wednesday.
The payment is part of a total of $550 million the US pledged to pay to the Palestinians over three years, part of a total of $7.7 billion in pledges from international donors made at a conference in Paris in December.
And what of the episode at Allenby crossing: Rawhi Fattuh, advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, caught attempting to smuggle more than 3,000 cell phones; driver takes blame.
In his speech today, President Bush said, "Because we acted, Saddam's regime is no longer paying the families of suicide bombers in the Holy Land."
Thank Gd and President Bush, he's right: Saddam is no longer paying the families of Palestinian Jew-murderers for killing Jews.
But the United States IS.
Thirteen days ago, Palestinians viciously slaughtered eight of our innocent sons inside the Merkaz HaRav yeshiva in the heart of what Bush calls "The Holy Land." And today President Bush is writing the Palestinians a check for $150 million dollars.
Is this not terribly clear?
So let's get this completely straight. When Palestinians killed Jews, Saddam would pay their families as much as $25,000. We considered this to be evil and America opposed it... militarily.
Less than two weeks ago, the Palestinians killed eight Jews - with the support of 84% of their populace - and today George Bush and Condi Rice and our Congress are giving them a gift?
150 million of our tax dollars?
What is that, almost $20 million per dead Jewish boy?
Or is it $250,000 per round of ammunition used?
Western-backed Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said it was "the largest sum of assistance of any kind to be transferred to the Palestinian Authority by any donor in one trench since the Palestinian Authority's inception."
Fayyad, who signed the agreement with U.S. Consul General Jake Walles, told reporters the U.S. contribution "was coming to us at a time of great need and it will help our efforts..."
Walles said the United States had pledged $550 million at a donors' conference in Paris in December last year that would be allocated for budgetary support, development projects and humanitarian assistance. "We're going to continue to implement the other aspects of our pledge," Walles said.
They're going to "continue to implement" this travesty?
With 550 MILLION of our tax dollars? Oh no they're not.
Jake Walles and Condi Rice and Salam Fayyad and Abu Mazen can call it whatever they like; Saddam probably thought he was in the business of "humanitarian assistance" too. But if it goes to the Palestinians while they're killing Jews in Israel, to me it's blood money, pure and simple.
There is no question: I'd sooner let Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid divvy up the money for earmarks in America any day, than bear responsibility for further enabling the Palestinians to kill and maim our families and our children. With impunity. With American money, our money. I cannot imagine anything more horrific.
If anyone can tell me how the U.S. is different from Saddam Hussein in this instance, speak now, because I'm ready to join with the opposition, the liberals who want to impeach Bush for their own reasons, in a desperate bid to bring attention to my own outrage, alarm and despair.
