When is a sports center not just a sports center? Well, for one thing, when it’s named for a terrorist. From the Washington Times, :
In one instance, about $410,000 in American aid helped finance the new Salah Khalaf Recreation and Sports Center in the West Bank city of Nablus.
The center, officially opened May 29, is named for the man considered the spiritual godfather of the Palestinian Black September faction responsible for the 1972 massacre at the Munich Summer Olympics.
The effort by U.S. lawmakers was triggered by a report in Palestinian Media Watch that U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) money was being funneled to Palestinian organizations even though they have refused to sign a pledge saying they would not work with officially designated terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
In addition, Palestinian municipalities and universities have accepted substantial U.S. aid, freeing up other funds for anti-Israel and anti-U.S. protests or to honor terrorist “martyrs.”
So U.S. aid is paying for anti-U.S. protests. No wonder the jihadists are so confident of ultimate victory.
