A U.S. official said the additional $150 million is "new money" advanced from 2011 funds approved by Congress.

The money was "front-loaded" to help the Palestinians...

“With the inclusion of money for security....” In other words “weapons” and “suicide vests”.

THIS $150 million will be the $150 million that finally convinces them to love us. Really, this is the one, a new era of love for us will begin, unseen since they were dancing in the streets on 9/11. I’ve got a REALLY good feeling about this...

In the meanwhile, our government is cooking up ways to limit what we receive. I don't mind, welcome really, government handing out less to the American people. It does, however, anger me to have our government reward people who want to kill us while cutting what it promised to Americans who built this country.

Obama has just committed his latest treason: funding a state sponsor of terror. Who? The group running Gaza — Hamas.

I'm sure none of that money will find its way into any Swiss bank accounts, nor will it be used to buy weaponry. Right? ....Right?

$13 trillion in debt and Obama is giving hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to people who celebrated on 9/11 and elected a terrorist gov't (Hamas).

What was it that GW said soon after 9-11? - something about those who support/fund terrorism.

$ we sent to the Pali-authority DOES, at least in part, go to the terrorists.

Giving $600 million dollars to people who celebrated 9/11 makes about as much sense as putting a community organizer into the WH.

It’s not like Fatah is any better... Hamas is the party that stabs you in the chest. Fatah pretends to be your friend and then stabs you in the back. Given the choice, I’d rather have Hamas — at least you know they’re your enemy.

And every rag-headed despot in the Middle East just rolling in oil money, I wonder how much the Saudi’s are going to pony up?

Obama is not being even handed here;
We're supporting the Taliban, and now Hamas, but what about Hezbollah and AL Qaeda.

Isn't this being a little discriminatory?
Sarcasm off

Exactly. It’s just like Obama handing off those Russian spies right away without giving our people time to get information out of them. We might as well have burned all those millions for all the good it’ll do our efforts in the Middle East.

I wish there were a way that we could put a stop to this. I would like to see an itemized list of all the monies that we give to other countries.

Nothing like funding terrorists buying weapons. Israel needs to wipe out those idiots.
