White House: No Plans to Withdraw Palestinian Aid After U.N. Vote
The Blaze ^ | 11/30/12 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 11/30/2012 9:22:40 AM PST by Nachum

There are no plans to withdraw aid to the Palestinian Authority following the United Nations vote to recognize Palestine as an independent state, a White House spokesman said Friday.

Josh Earnest told reporters traveling on Air Force One that the U.S. opposed the resolution to give the Palestinian Authority nonmember observer state status because the Israel-Palestinian conflict should be resolved “only through face-to-face negotiations, not unilateral actions,” according to the White House pool report.

A bipartisan group of senators had threatened to cut off millions in U.S. financial aid to the Palestinians if the vote succeeded.

Earnest said there were no other consequences under consideration that he could discuss.

If isn't end times, it's odd that the table sure seems to be being set for it. Obama has funneled his weapons to the Syrian rebels, and now we'll have another strident Islamist state soon in Syria to match Egypt and Turkey in the vicinity of Israel. Throw in Iran with the bomb in a few months, and the impending financial collapse of the U.S., and I'd say Barry is bringing it on.

What happens if the Senate actually decides to cut the aid to PLO in half? (There was also a motion afoot to cut the UN money in half!) Will/can the WH just dismiss a vote in the Senate? And what if the House follows up?

It’s not so much about my country being broken that concerns me, it is coming to the realization that it can no longer be fixed.

Withold aid? Bwhahahaha. You just watch. They will announce a new multi million/billion aid package to the jihadis. Obama is not just ignorant about the intentions of the jihadis but is complicite.

Whomever it was, it was done with the knowledge and blessings of Obama. I doubt we will ever be able to prove that.

The UN is what the US should be withdrawing from. That body no longer reflects US interests.

I've heard they WE THE PEOPLE *ahem* the government of the US Socialist Republic gives $200,000,000.00 per annually for these murderous Egyptian/arabs and Bedouins. So Ms Riceybeanos votes no, makes a firey speech and we send OPUR tax dollars to a terrorist government to buy missiles from Iran.

Have I got this partially right?

does anyone remember Hillary personally taking aid to arafat during the clinton administration..she always made a stop in Switzerland at a bank. Since the carter years there has always been something strange about giving aid to terrorist palestinians.
