Bill ends foreign aid to Palestinian government

Apr 29, 2014

Sen. Rand Paul today introduced the Stand with Israel Act of 2014. This legislation halts all U.S. aid to the Palestinian government until they agree to a ceasefire and recognize the right of Israel to exist. The bill, S. 2265, can be found HERE and below:

TEXT:

"Prohibition on Foreign Assistance.

(a) In General. Except as provided under subsection (b) and notwithstanding any other provision of law, no amounts may be obligated or expended to provide any direct United States assistance, loan guarantee, or debt relief to the Palestinian Authority, or any affiliated governing entity or leadership organization.

(b) Exception. The prohibition under subsection (a) shall have no effect for a fiscal year if the President certifies to Congress during that fiscal year that the Palestinian Authority has --
(1) Formally recognized the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state;
(2) Publicly recognized the state of Israel; (3) Renounced terrorism;
(4) Purged all individuals with terrorist ties from security services;
(4) Terminated funding of anti-American and anti-Israel incitement;
(5) Publicly pledged to not engage in war with Israel; and
(6) Honored previous diplomatic agreements."

It isn’t yet low enough. No one of above room temp IQ should trust the low life idiots currently infesting all levels of the sewer of government.

Slime, crooks, grifters, sewage, feces, and various forms of Clintons and Obamas.....

Ya know, a good IQ test would take care of most of these morons...the Obamadork being the first casualty.

Oops, somehow my reply got to the wrong section - it was relating to millenials not trusting our slime-O-ment.

Oh well, still fits. Our gubmit has also turned on Israel.

No, he’s NOT the new nutcase McCain. Paul is not afraid to attack the left, and he hasn’t stated that we have nothing to fear from obama. That being said, I’m still for Ted Cruz for President.

That's nice.

How about we just plain halt all US aid to the Palestinian government. And all the rest of the Mad Muzzies, while we're at it?
