Obama lifts freeze on $192 million aid package to Palestinian Authority: “Important to the security interests of the United States”

It is? In what way? “Obama lifts freeze on $192 million aid package to Palestinian Authority,” from the Times of Israel, April 27:

US President Barack Obama has lifted a ban on financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.

Obama stated that the aid was “important to the security interests of the United States.”

The US Congress froze a $192 million aid package to the Palestinian Authority after its president, Mahmoud Abbas, defied US pressure and sought to attain UN endorsement of Palestinian statehood last September. The presidential waiver means that aid can now be delivered….

The AFP news agency quoted White House spokesman Tommy Vietor as saying the $192 million aid package would be devoted to “ensuring the continued viability of the moderate PA government under the leadership of [Palestinian Authority] President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.”

Vietor added that the PA had fulfilled its major obligations, such as recognizing Israel’s right to exist, renouncing violence and accepting the Road Map for Peace.

Oh really? They’ve done all that, and yet still retail genocidal rhetoric about destroying Israel? Quite a balancing act.

    “Obama lifts freeze”

    I’m not surprised. The only thing that surprises me….is that it took him so long to do it.

    “the aid was “important to the security interests of the United States.””

    Yeah, right. Now thell’have more money to educate their own young with murder. Now they’ll have more money to send out suicide bombers (murderers).

    That’s why I love the following Scripture (and it includes thugs like obama)

    THE PROPHECY

    Isa 14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone – in his appointed times.

    Obama is determined to destroy this nation! He is determined to bankrupt this nation.

    My problem is with his record why is he running for a 2nd term, and why is the media still in love with him?

    And then there’s that big question, why oh why hasn’t he been impeached? Why have we the American people allowed him to destroy this country?

    Why couldn’t the Palestinians get any Muslim countries to give them aid that doesn’t consist of weapons, ammunition, and explosives?

    Considering that the PLO/PA NEVER has lived up to its “Oslo” obligations,the PA should be TERMINATED,since it was created out of “Oslo”.
    $192M to prop up a GENOCIDAL “Authority” that HAS NO RIGHT TO EXIST after abrogating ,countless times,the “accords” out of which it was CREATED.

    I must have missed that memo- when exactly did the PA and/or Abbas recognize Israel’s right to exist?

    How exactly is funding terrorism important to the security interest of the US?

  6. says

    Oh crumbs.

    If it were up to me, neither the PA nor North Korea would ever get a dime. Were I President, I’d tell the PA they need to start recognizing Israel’s right to exist and saying it IN ARABIC; and as for North Korea, I’d tell them that we’re willing to nuke Pyongyang and Wonsan withing 24 hours if they get out of line, and if their population starves, let them eat Communist Party cadre. Yes, when there’s someone as Hell-bent on trouble as the Kim family (and I don’t mean the guys running the grocery or the pastor at the Presbyterian Church with the funny lettering in your town) or Hamas, they should not get a penny of the American taxpayer’s money.

    So with taxpayers money Obama is bribing the PA to be peaceful? More likely it’s just an Obama theft of sucker American dollars to fellow Muslims. Obama has no right to do this without making clear the American security interest, which he can’t. He wouldn’t condescend to us lowly infidels to even try.

    Your money unduly taken to aid the death-to-America Muslims of the PA. Can it really be possible that this (possibly non-American) and surely un-American Muslim will be re-elected president?

  8. says

    Hey add another $192 million to $15.3Trillion or whatever deficit. Nobody will notice. Did Americans elect a foreigner as its President whose only aim is to bring America down to level of Somalia!

    A new black and white rodent has appeared on Palestinian television, and it’s not the Mickey Mouse you’re used to. This one teaches children about AK-47s and Jihad on behalf of the Islamist group Hamas.

    A children’s show which airs each Friday on al-Aqsa television, a station run by Hamas which broadcasts in the Palestinian Territories, now employs a singing, squeaking, dancing mouse named Farfour to connect with young viewers. But despite having a name that means “butterfly,” Farfour is clearly a Mickey Mouse rip-off. The only difference being that this rodent is doing his best to transform show viewers into rifle-toting Islamist Mouseketeers.

    This is how your president spends your hard-earned tax money – a large amount towards izlumic hate propaganda television geared towards toddlers teaching them to hate jews and infidels. You should be furious!

    Obama is well known for supporting Islamic terrorism and supporting PA in their quest to cleanse the Holy Land of its Jewish influence. So we give them almost 200 million to do what? Attack Israel with rockets and other forms of terrorism? I wonder what happened to our gov’t proposal to stop supporting countries that discriminate and promote terrorism. If the PA is not guilty of that who is? It is time for the US congress, both democrats and republicans to stand and freeze again money out of American taxpayers pockets sent to those who would not only destroy Israel, but the US as well. It is time to start impeachment proceedings against Obama and his band of merry men (and women). I’m sick and tired of his arrogant assault on the US laws and Constitution.

    A BRIBE TO REVIVE PALI-ISRAELI PEACE TALKS?

    Leave it to this screwball, dumbass Nobel Peace Prize winning loon to perpetuate the Palestinian jihad against Israel by rewarding their annihilating hatred of Jews with a gift of $200 million. But after Obama avoided a politically damaging hostage crisis with Egypt by shelling out $5 million in ransom for Sam LaHood and 18 Americans it could be that this $200 mill is a bride to revive Pali-Israeli peace talks before Election Day. The Palis surely know that Obama’s reelection will give him more “flexibility” to come down hard on Netanyahu and Israel.

    Mr. Obama needs to be impeached as a traitor (http://www.petition2congress.com/6519/impeach-mr-obama/). He uses taxpayer money to establish/respect Islam and gives millions to factions of the groups we are at war with. Of course, he also facilitated the software company that counts U.S. votes (SOE) being sold to Soros’ company (SCYTL) in Spain. So, now all U.S. votes (Congressional and citizen) are “counted” by Soros. We also need a new Amendment regulating and protecting vote counting.

    What *utter crap*. They have *never* recognized Israel’s right to exist, and reiterate this on a regular basis. The “Palestinian Authority” aims to destroy Israel just as Hamas does. And now, thanks to the United States, they have $192 million more to play with…

    Judge Learned Hand said that if liberty dies in the hearts of the people, no law or constitution can save it. Given that our MSM has convinced the bulk of Americans that they need a nanny state, that’s what we’re going to get.
