The United States transferred $40 million in foreign assistance to the Palestinians.

...

During yesterday’s State Department briefing, spokesperson Victoria Nuland emphasized that it was not in the interest of the United States to withhold assistance to the Palestinians.

“We don’t think it’s in U.S. national interest to keep this money frozen. So from that perspective, we’re gratified that 40 million has now been released,” Nuland said.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

We don’t have $40 million to give to those terrorist sponsoring creeps.

And if we did have an xtra $40 million, divide it up and give it to every American 85 and older. They probably could use it, and if not, give it to them anyway. ; )

Not one human being in need will see so much as a saltine cracker from this money.

Once again some dirt bag palestinian leader will use this money to buy rockets to kill Israelis with and the rest for booze and hookers.

with regards to those in the US government who were instrumental in taking the $40 million from the US tax payers, I wonder how much they will get out of it?

The PA ARE terrorists, which means that the current regime has turned the US taxpayers into "those terrorist sponsoring creeps."

Our government is full of CROOKS. One of our elected CROOKS has $$$$ dealings with the Palestinians. That’s how our democracy game is played these days.

"The assistance that the U.S. is for humanitarian and economic purposes and not for security assistance."

This is a very poorly worded sentence in the article, but is factually correct. Security assistance would be for protection or defense. The funds are definitely for the opposite; as in offense. Humanitarian purposes: think food and shelter for children, err future improvised explosive humans (IEH's), aka terrorists.

This disgrace has been going on for years - both parties play this game with our money. It will be written that we bankrupted ourselves while needlessly paying tribute to our enemies.
