Re your thread Hamas 'happy' with Obama's $900 million pledge [2009 Flashback: Never Forget!!]

I guess the US taxpayers must be happy that the sum is much less this time - so far!

"US to send $47m in humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip ..."

... The US is protecting it's investment. The US taxpayer IS the Palestinian economy .... we paid them $500 Million just last month to fund the State. Heck .... does this mean Palestine is America's 51st State?

Serving humanity would mean dumping 47 million worth of nerve gas on Gaza.

The Israelis allowed concrete into Gaza to build schools and hospitals.

Hamas used the concrete to build terror tunnels.

What could possibly go wrong with $47M from Hussein 0bama?

So the best way to qualify for US aid is to kill as many Americans as one can. For two killed so far in the latest conflict, Obama is rewarding HAMAS with forty seven million dollars. The terrorists are asking, and rightfully so, how many Americans they have to destroy to qualify for, hm, 1 billion dollars. Is US aid to be used to rebuild people's homes or Hamas elite homes, or as they have always done, rebuilding the tunnels and prepare for the next conflict which will for sure bring more and more and more US dollars? Now, who are considered the smart ones?

The citizens of Gaza elected Hamas as their leaders. Steps to insulate them from the folly of that decision will only lead to continued fighting. This is a bad move.

This is an outrage. Hamas itself caused the hunger, death, and homelessness of the people of Gaza by attacking Israel with hundreds of rockets, which Israel had no choice but to retaliate against in order to defend itself.

And Hamas also refused to take part in an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire last week which would have ended the hostilities. In fact, Hamas could end the hostilities immediately if it agreed to lay down its arms.

Instead, our government is helping Hamas continue the deaths, hunger, and homelessness of its own people by contributing $47 million to its Orwellian-named humanitarian fund.

If Obama did not completely support Hamas’s efforts to destroy Israel, he would have made America’s contribution contingent on Hamas’s agreeing to a cease-fire. But he hasn’t. He’s all in for Hamas.

And Obama won’t even send a few defensive weapons to the Ukrainians suffering under Putin’s Russian separatists.

What makes all this particularly beyond-the-pale, is that when our blatantly pro-Hamas president travels to his big fundraisers in New York City and Hollywood, most of the $37,000-a-plate contributors flooding his campaign coffers are Jewish Americans. The horror!

I guess Hamas (and PLO, Islamic Jihad etc) are what you would call “crony-terrorists”. Living on money from Western taxpayers.

" Who approved this “aid”???"

As a side note concerning the constitutionality of federal foreign aid, you might find the following excerpt from the writings of Justice Joseph Story to be interesting. Justice Story had clarified that Congress cannot use the Constitution's Clause 1 of Section 8 of Article I, the "Spending Clause," as an excuse to justify foreign aid.

“If the tax be not proposed for the common defence, or general welfare, but for other objects, wholly extraneous, (as for instance, for propagating Mahometanism among the Turks, or giving aids and subsidies to a foreign nation, to build palaces for its kings, or erect monuments to its heroes,) it would be wholly indefensible upon constitutional principles [emphases added].” — Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution 2 (1833) .

How much is Obenedict sending to Israel for all the mi$$ile and rocket damage plus the traumatic stress disorders the Israelis and their little ones have been suffering for years now?

Will Bill O'Really chide his good-boy/bad-boy buddy Obama for not being "fair and balanced" in lavishing "emergency" tax money only on one side in this war?

I wish someone on our side would take the initiative, and instead of saying “$47m”, say “all the income taxes paid by people in the state/county/city of X were sent over to Gaza . . .”

In these days of computerized everything, you’d think our side could come up with specific amounts and associate them with some part of the electorate.

If they would start personalizing these millions, it would make a bigger impact. Peoples’ eyes glaze over at the million/billion/trillion descriptions, but if you put it in terms of THEIR money, specifically, maybe some of the will start to yell “Hey! Wait a minute!”
