Congress Cuts $200 Million in Aid to the Palestinian Authority

Congress cut $200 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority in retaliation for requesting statehood in the United Nations over the objections of the United States. This will be a serious blow to the Obama administration’s standing with the Palestinian leader. Mr. Abbas was the first person Obama called after winning the presidential election. What is the punishment in Sharia Law when a Muslim does not pay what is promised to another Muslim? Seems like Obama will have some explaining to do.

Can someone tell me why the United States is giving any foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority? The time to pay blood money to Muslim terrorists (dhimmitude) should have been stopped on September 11, 2011.

Abbas is punished by $200m cut in aid from US

The United States Congress has blocked nearly $200m in aid for the Palestinians, threatening projects such as food aid, health care, and support for efforts to build a functioning state.

The decision to delay the payments runs counter to the wishes of the Obama administration and reflects Congressional anger at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s so far unrealised pursuit of Fatah-Hamas reconciliation and statehood recognition at the UN.

The freezing of the funds, which were to have been dispersed in the US fiscal year that ends today, is the most tangible sign yet of the seriousness of Congressional leaders’ threats of an even wider halt to funding in the coming year if Mr Abbas continues with his actions at the UN. It was strongly condemned yesterday by the Palestinian Authority.

It’s about time! The SJP (Students for Justice for Palestine) and other Muslim groups in America have been funneling money to Hamas and other terrorist groups for a long time. Town Hall reports that San Diego is being sued by the ACLU to allow Muslims to pray during school. America better wake up to the stealth jihad being waged here, and Palestine and its dirty little fingers extend all over the world. You need only watch a Palestinian produced cartoon aimed at their children or listen to some of the material taught in classes to kindergardners to understand how evil these people are.
