The Al-Jazeera network reported on Sunday evening that the US administration has decided to immediately close all bank accounts linked to the PA or the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in banks across the United States.

Don’t worry, they still have plenty of money, Arafat has six billion tucked away. Wait, he’s dead—where did it go?

Thank you for specifying “Palestinian Authority.” Whenever I see PA, as a native of Pennsylvania, I think ‘what the hell is going on there?’

Good decision President Donald John Trump . This man in my opinion is the greatest President I have ever had the honor to vote for . My first vote was in 1979 at age 18 I voted for Reagan while a resident of Massachusetts .

No, it’s the Port Authority. They richly deserve to be investigated!

Sometimes when there’s enough room in the headline field, I’m tempted to put “Palestinian Authority, not Pennsylvania”, although I seem to recall when I did that in the past, I got a few wisecracks.

While I appreciate my President doing this I do fear for his safety. These people are terrorists as are the MS13 (even though both groups have”the spark of humanity in them”)
