The Palestinian Authority said the Obama administration has warned it will cut aid if it goes to the United Nations again for recognition. In Congress, opposition to aiding the Palestinian Authority was fueled by charges that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has lined his pockets.
Khaled Mesmar, a Palestinian Authority official of the Political Committee of the Palestinian National Council, admitted on Tuesday that the United States has threatened to cut off financial aid to the Palestinian Liberation Office in Washington if the Palestinian leadership submitted another membership bid to the United Nations.
He said the threat was delivered through official channels during a recent visit to Ramallah by an American envoy.
Mesmar said that the PA took the threats seriously but has not yet decided to go ahead with another appeal to the United Nations Security Council for membership, which would entail recognition of the Palestinian Authority as an independent country based on its own definition of borders.

I don’t mind their corruption. Every million of our tax dollars that they steal for their personal luxuries is a million dollars less that they have available for weapons to kill Israeli women and children.
They should have had their lips off our wallets a long time back..if folks are not for us why do we support them, and if they are for us why don’t we require they support themselves..we are broke...
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Supporting that murderous subhuman muzzie/arab filth is as bad as supporting the treasonous lib-dem/RINO trash bottom-feeder pols here. No wonder we’re broke.
Why don’t we send our checks directly to a Swiss bank ?
The PA leader is a crook???? I’m shocked....SHOCKED...to learn there is gambling is this establishment!!!
Look into the crystal ball. What do you see? I see Abbas retiring to a villa in Paris with a hundred million or so.
It’s still available for that, just not as much a priority as a new horsy to ride around on, and also riding lessons.
I’d prefer an offer of full citizenship with benefits provided they off these “leaders” themselves in a really gory Arab-type execution. They’d probably take the offer just so they could do something really creative with Abbas’ bowels and scrotum. But six of one, half a dozen of the other. Invasion would also work for me.
