US unblocks $500M for Palestinians
ynet ^

Posted on 03/24/2013 8:14:17 AM PDT by Perdogg

The United States has quietly unblocked almost $500 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority which had been frozen by Congress for months, a top US official said Friday.

The news that the funds had finally been freed up came after US President Barack Obama met top Israeli and Palestinian leaders in a landmark visit to Israel and the West Bank earlier this week.

Glad we have all this money to throw around out there for these barbarians while we hammer our military with the sequester.

Can’t let a little thing like sequester get in the way of helping Muslims. Our military not so much.

I guess all the sequester stuff is just a bunch of ‘RAT bovine scatology.

just seeing him and his wife and her family drives me nuts.

He;s only there because of massive fraud which was done in the Dem controlled counties in the swing states.
He lost more conties in my state.
More people turned out in other counties like mind against him but for some strange reason with the recount we saw republcian votes thrown away, ignored, more than one vote for the self professed messiah and we are supposed to think of him as a winner.

ARF NO FRIGGING CHANCE

Aren’t the pali’s the bunch that like to kill everyone else...and sometimes each other. They have such a wonderful death culture. My fave is when they showed their kids a skit on pali tv where they showed Jews killing mickey mouse on pail tv. What a wonderful, fun-loving, peaceful culture. They deserve $500,000,000 more of American taxpayer money, don’t they?

Meanwhile, Debbie Was a man Shultz’s aides slowly starve to death.

Marines get blown up in Nevada.

Poor children get cut.

Disabled children get cut.

Air traffic towers get closed.

Criminals are loosed upon the public.

I’ve had enough.

$500 for the throat cutters.
$250 million for Joran (was to be the home of the Palis.)
$200 million for Egypt.

Pretty soon, you’re talking about big money.

Why on Earth didn’t we stop this when we had the Republican President, House and Senate???? Sheesh when Bush had all those, he didn’t even pass anything worthwhile. At least (as bad as it is) when the Democrats have all 3 branches, they passed Obamacare. We lose a big opportunity to change some stuff from 2002 to 2006. Lost Opportunity that we will not see again for a while.

Why would we give $.05 to the Palistinians? They hate us,and they celebrated in the street when WTCs were attacked on 9/11. Giving them money will not make them like us, nor will it cause them to make peace with the Jews.

I realize that Obama likes the Muslim Brotherhood, but why are we so stupid? We don’t have money; we only have the ability to borrow from our grandchildren.

The concept of our giving a single dollar to those dogs boggles the mind, let alone half-billion chunks at a time.

This $500,000,000 of US taxpayer funds will be used to plot against and kill Jewish people. Obama knows this. He sides with the terrorists.

I have concluded the Bushes are tools (or at least way too good friends)of the Saudi royal house.It explains much.

The Bushes are not conservatives.

I don’t know why Americans keep electing people who run companies into bankruptcy or have never held a productive job (like the clintons and obama).

Well every administration has been friendly with the Saudi royals as they should be since they are preferable to the alternative. we need their oil.

$500,000,000 divided by 4,000,000 people equals $125 per person.

Palestinians receive more aid per capita than any other people on the planet:http://quitenormal.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/palestinians-receive-more-aid-per-capita-than-any-other-people-on-the-planet/

Real interesting article: Does Foreign Aid Fuel Palestinian Violence? http://www.meforum.org/1926/does-foreign-aid-fuel-palestinian-violence

I don’t know how to post pic’s but the charts in this article are amazing.

We’re keeping US aircraft carriers home because it’s too expensive to deploy them but we’re funding Pallie terrorism. Nice.

Amazing, isn't it?

And where are our "hero" Republican leaders?

No where. They have abandoned the military.

This article was from November 2011. We should have seen the writing on the wall back then.

Grover Norquist's GOP has betrayed the US military

You beat me to it. $500,000 to the Palestinians and $200,00 to Jordan.

Hmmmmmm, seems to me that would more than make up the $4000 they are going to take away from me!
