Financing our own demise. The same nanny-state that won't let me eat trans-fat because it's bad for me hosts an orgaization dead set on getting us all killed.

Suggestion for the UN. If this is so all important, why not use the billions of dollars that they want to use to upgrade their offices? Sorry....I guess I am too logical.

Well, what the hell good are sanctions anyway if when they start to do their job we just pump money in there through the UN. Let's just all pray that no American money goes to this effort - watch the rest of the world try to raise that amount, parsimonious, cheese-paring hand-wringers that they are.

Any aid should come in the form of food, or water.

What is the point of international economic sanctions if those same countries turn around and donate for the relief of the very same recipients of the international economic sanctions? Hmm? What IS the point? Is there a point?

@#$% Them!

They get tons of money from Iran and Syria for missiles. Billions of UN money still sits in Yassir's bank accounts.

Besides, how can these people get this money when they refuse to recognize the UN declarations?

Let their friends the Saudis give it to them. They made several 100 billions in extra profit this year with 70+ dollar barrel of oil.

Muslims do not pay another Muslim a jizyah.

"Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
