CAIRO - The US is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians.....
(Excerpt) Read more at ynetnews.com ...
Guess those tunnels, bunkers and missiles will be reconstructed/replenished in short order.....
I guess the US taxpayers must be happy that the sum is much less this time - so far!
Who approved this “aid”???
The pen and the phone.
That’s easy, the same guys who want to translate the aid money into more sophisticated and effective weapons.....BO!
... 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?
Fast and Furious Redux
Serving humanity would mean dumping 47 million worth of nerve gas on Gaza.
We should be rioting in the streets.
“”But always, in any conflict, there is concern about civilians - about children, women, communities that are caught in it,” Mr Kerry said”
How many innocent women and children have American drones killed?
Attacks on Israeli civilians by Palestinians
Deliberate targeting of civilians by Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups defies humanity and is morally and legally reprehensible
I hate Obama and his entire administration and wish nothing but destruction on all of them!
47 new millionaires in Gaza...Palestinians are Israel’s enemy...That makes them my enemy...I say don’t give them a nickel of my money...
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?
Down a rat hole.
Time to bring out your pitchforks, tar, and feather.
See this one:
Obama bends over to bl*w the Palestinians and farts in Israel’s face.
I can tell you who the dumb ones are - the ones who voted for Obama.
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.
Funding terrorists used to be against US law.
I used to pray for God to spare this country from judgment. But I don’t even care anymore. This nation will richly deserve whatever He visits upon it, and so will the filthy, Godless dung beetle in the White House.
“We should be rioting in the streets.”
Can’t.... The Daily Show, followed by American Idol will be on in an hour, and that is so much more important, doncha know.../s?
“Funding terrorists used to be against US law.”
That was when America was a nation of laws, before the Gay Media Messiah fundmentally transformed it.
Didn’t stop the Kennedys from funding their IRA pals.
Look for the order of new Man Pads headed that way!
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.
Yep, that’s what we have now. Dear God.
How come you never hear about the Saudis and all their money aiding their Palestinian “Brothers”?
Why is it always “Uncle Sucker”?
Stupid is as stupid does...
Our veterans get the shaft while the heathens in Gaza get the bucks.
Nothing right about that.
Obama does not know. But he’s reading the newspapers to get to the bottom of it.
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) .
It seems it is time to let your congressmen & women know about this.
Send cement for schools, they have tunnels to rebuild
total insanity on Obaba’s part....not one dime of that money would ever go to humanitarian anything...Hamas will cash the check and begin to rebuild their tunnels and rocket inventory.....PATHETIC
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?
Sewage pipes, too. They’re running out of missiles.
Start the calls to DC:
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!”
Our founding fathers began shooting for FAR less than this...
Until something fazes the mindless “gibsmedats” on the government teat, not one thing will change...peacefully.
