“Building towards Palestinian statehood” — that is, another foothold in the ongoing jihad against Israel.
“PNA: USA To Transfer USD150 Million,” from ANSAmed (thanks to Insubria):
(ANSAmed) – JERUSALEM, MARCH 19 – An agreement for a USD150 million aid (about 95 million euro) by the United States to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) was signed in Ramallah, in the West Bank, today. Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who signed the agreement with U.S. Consul General Jake Walles, told the media that the financial aid “comes to us at a time of great need and it will help our efforts in building towards Palestinian statehood”. The American aid – so far the biggest granted by one of the donor states – is part of an American pledge to support the Fayyad government and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen).
