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.”

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.

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.

Israel could invade in the morning and have a brand new territory by break time the same day. Any trouble makers would either be in exile spending there stolen millions or dead and the Palestinian people would suddenly have a life.

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.
