FINALLY: Trump State Dept. cutting aid to anti-American Palestinians

(National SentinelNo More: The Trump administration, increasingly fed up by the refusal of the Palestinian leadership to denounce violence against Israel and get serious about a peace deal that would finally see them have a country of their own, is cutting off taxpayer-funded aid.

On Friday the State Department announced it would be withholding some $200 million in aid funds after POTUS Donald Trump ordered a review of Palestinian Authority funding in January to ensure the money wasn’t going to fund terrorist activities, The Blaze reported.

The funds, which are supposed to be used to fund health care, education, and other PA infrastructure, has sat frozen since.

In a statement, the State Department noted:

At the direction of President Trump, we have undertaken a review of U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority and in the West Bank and Gaza to ensure these funds are spent in accordance with U.S. national interests and provide value to the U.S. taxpayer.

As a result of that review, at the direction of the president, we will redirect more than $200 million … originally planned for programs in the West Bank and Gaza.




As it turns out, terrorism did play a big part in POTUS’ and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s decision.

Terrorist activities perpetrated by Iran proxy Hamas in the Gaza Strip was a big reason for the decision, The Associated Press noted (in a story accompanied by a photo of sweet, innocent Palestinian school girls doing some sort of dance…with banners or something, rather than a picture of Palestinians regularly burning effigies of our leaders along with American flags — see above).

“This decision takes into account the challenges the international community faces in providing assistance in Gaza, where Hamas control endangers the lives of Gaza’s citizens and degrades an already dire humanitarian and economic situation,” the State Department said in its announcement.

In other words, it’s Iran’s fault because Iran funds Hamas and Hamas acts in conjunction with Iranian interests.

Naturally, the Palestinians were ticked off.

“The Palestinian people and leadership will not be intimidated and will not succumb to coercion. The rights of the Palestinian people are not for sale. There is no glory in constantly bullying and punishing a people under occupation,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s executive committee.

“The U.S. administration has already demonstrated meanness of spirit in its collusion with the Israeli occupation and its theft of land and resources; now it is exercising economic meanness by punishing the Palestinian victims of this occupation.”

Translation: Palestinians have a right to land and existence, but Israel does not.

Sound familiar?

As for the funds, State Department officials said the $200 million will now go to fund other Trump administration diplomatic priorities.

Without a doubt, the biggest obstacles to “peace” in the Middle East has been Arab factions like the Palestinians — who have been offered land in exchange for peace before but rejected it because they don’t want Israel to exist, period.

That isn’t going to happen, not so long as Israel remains an ally of the United States.

About time we stop funding Terrorists – it is our Law, as is not funding a government founded by military coup. SO, now stop sending $2,000,000,000.00 to Pakistan and Egypt.

Yipee! Finally, I have to ask. What the hell took so long? For the life of me, I can’t figure out why we are feeding these gangsters. They are enemy. Spend order of magnitudes more money to kill them. It’s a question of roach abatement.

Millions go to support little girl’s dance classes, just like millions flowing to planned parenthood only support health services.

Why should our hard earned dollars be funding the Palestinian genocide at the hands of anti-American “Israelis”?! Our supposedly “great ally” in the middle east is our greatest nuisance, in reality. Sending Palestinians money was to ease the suffering inflicted by our rabid “ally”, not that this “ally” ever gave them the money or the support items. Anti-American describes “ISRAEL”! Palestinians simply hate their oppressors. Their murderers. And WE pay for these morons to murder them. Any American would feel the same, and WILL because that is Israels plan for this country, as well. Doubt it not.
