More money to the people who will forever hate America.

Is Kerry stupid — or is he a traitor?

Yep, the Palestinians will ALWAYS hate us, no matter how much we try to bribe 'em.

Lurch, your plan just ain't gonna cut the mustard in Gazastan....and the taxpayers in the U.S.of A. ain't gonna relish it, either.

The United States is going bankrupt and we’re going to “boost” the Palestinian economy? It’s time to start randomly piss testing those morons on Capitol Hill. There seems to be a lot of druggies working up there.

Easy, there, Flyer.

It's not U.S. government money he's going to give them.

He's going to "mobilize" private :"investment" money to "boost" the "tourism, construction, and agriculture" industries.

He;s completely delusional, but he's not robbing the treasury to do it (according to this, anyway).

“revitalise the West Bank through boosting industries such as tourism, construction and agriculture.”

He has to be kidding - TOURISM? Take a tour of Palestinians in the West Bank while dodging bullets because they hate Americans. Sure, sign me up - not.

4 billion for more arms missiles and manpads!
We don’t have 4 billion to give anyone!
Why do dems think they can just give tax dollars away!
This has to be changed where is Congress! and where have they been for 30 years!
Hey Kerry just send some free ketchup The FDA deemed it a food in the food group!
By the way all foreign aid now should be in the way of food or meds! No cash! And sent from the USA as a voucher!
This way Americans some where see a profit and the cash stays in the States!
The Gov buys the product from the vendor and ships it!
By the way Kerry how bout boosting our economy with low intrest loans for small business to the tune of 4 billion dollars!

Well, if we sent the same $4 billion to the Free Sh!t mobs in our inner cities, it would still go down the hole and not be put to much better use. We may as well dole it out the the Psychostinians and pay them tribute for a little while. We'll lose it all anyhow. Maybe they'll be nice and leave us alone?

Jefferson is no doubt rolling in his grave. Two hundred years ago as a fledgling, weak nation we handled pirates such as these like men. Today, we give them state dinners, kiss their a$$es, and lavish them with Dollars borrowed from China or printed out of thin air.

The last laugh will be on us.

the last crooked murderer in charge of the socalled Palistinian authority or PLO (Arafat, an Egyptian) left a zillion dollars to his young widow when he finally finished stealing and killing people (even scum eventually die)

it is no different now.
but it is also the AMERICAN politicians who stand to make tons of money off krap like this....

why do you think they keep giving away our money to rouge or terrorist regimes or organizations overseas... “giving” our money to enemies of America or Christian values or civilization or our allies.... terroristas or MuslimBros or you name it? DO YOU IMAGINE that all our tax money gets to the murderers intact, without having a big part siphoned off first... or without having a big part rebated back to a secret swiss bank account or two?

if so, I have a great bridge in NYC on sale...

These would be the same “Palestinians” who destroyed all the greenhouses the Israelis left behind, right?

This is 4 billion USD for the “Palestinians” to arm themselves, destroy Israel, and support jihad worldwide.

Hmm! Now what could they produce?

How about turning plowshares into swords; or maybe fine camel skin bomb belts; or maybe send them some rock crushers so they can arm the street scum with proper sized rock throwing ammunition; or automate the production of IED’s to improve output; send them used cellphones so they can hone the art of developing detonators. Or maybe a classroom of Pali’s with maps of New York City in an advanced school to teach these heathens how to become a NYC taxi driver. There must be lots of possibilities to blow $4 billion on these scum.

Hell, we were able to blow $878 billion on our own, producing a sum total of Zer0!

Thanks haffast.
He has tasked Tony Blair, the Quartet's special envoy to the Middle East, with drawing up a plan to revitalise the West Bank through boosting industries such as tourism, construction and agriculture. Blair's plan, being aided by some global business leaders who are giving their time free, could be "ground-shaking," Kerry said, adding it could lead to "a private-sector-led healthy, sustainable Palestinian economy".

Absolutely spot on. The Israelis left behind intact greenhouses to provide a livelihood for the Pali-idiots. The Pali-idiots promptly dismantled the greenhouses and destroyed them. And you trust such morons to make sound decisions with OUR money? Crackhead!

Tourists tend not to go where the likelihood of someone cutting off your head is high.

Construction is useless among people who blow things up instead of building things.

They inherited a mature agricultural industry when Israel pulled out of Gaza. And they trashed it overnight.

Kerry is a dim bulb. Perhaps the dimmest bulb to ever light the State Department. And that takes some serious doing.
