$400 million to support terrorists?Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives, Political News and commentaries
$400 million is the amount of taxpayers' money that Barack Obama just pledged to the Palestinian Authority. George Bush also sent money to the PA, but that doesn't alter the need for the question - what in the hell do they do with the money?
If this is an example of what it goes to, perhaps we should be more than a bit concerned.
Worthy of note is that Barack Obama had no problem posing for photos with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, but refused to allow photos with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu. This leaves little doubt as to where Barack Hussein Obama's ideological allegiance lies.
And as for Obama's discussions and actions during the meeting, the net result is that he was in fact, as Jennifer Rubin puts it - Giving Hamas a Helping Hand:
The inanity of Obama's Middle East diplomacy was on full display yesterday. Obama has a knack for getting both the macro and the micro wrong.More ...
On the macro, we now are pressuring Israel to relax the Gaza blockade, thereby giving up a grand-slam home run to the team from Hamas -- the ones responsible for the Gaza war and the oppression of the Palestinians under its thumb. This, of course, also redounds to the benefit of their state sponsors, the mullahs, who will take a break from whooping it up over the pathetic UN sanctions in order to gloat about this triumph.
... Obama's efforts in ways big and bigger are destructive to our own credibility, to the security of our allies, to our efforts to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, and to the American people, who have had far too much of their hard-earned money confiscated for idiotic purposes under this administration. But few match this one.
