No Money for Traffic Control Towers, But $700 Mil Available for Palestinian Terrorists

Wave bye bye to another $700 million in taxpayer money

 

Budgets are all about priorities. Some things don’t matter, like 20,000 United States Marines, White House tours, the space program and air traffic control towers.

But some things do matter… like aiding terrorists.

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.

“To date, we have moved $295.7 million in fiscal year 2012 money… and $200 million in fiscal year 2013 assistance,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.

The Obama administration also notified Congress in late February that it was seeking a further $200 million to fund US Agency for International Development (USAID) programs for the Palestinians, she said.

And that brings us up to the $700 million that Kerry was discussing last month.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is fighting to send the Palestinian Authority nearly $700 million in aid, despite major budget cuts and a fierce debate over where existing money should go.

“The Secretary feels extremely strongly that it is time now to get this support to the Palestinian Authority,” said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

Kerry is working with lawmakers to “get appropriated money released for the Palestinian Authority because we think it’s very, very important that they remain effective in supporting the needs of the Palestinian people,” Nuland said.

The question is should the needs of the American people come before those of the Palestinian people… or should the needs of the terrorists come before those of Americans?

Kerry and the rest of Obama Inc. clearly believe that Palestinians should come before Americans.

    It is obvious what this administrations plan is as far as Americans are concerned, They hate America and Americans, They want the New World Order in America and it is not going to happen as easy as they thought it would, People are waking up and finally seeing the truth, Obama doesn't care, all he wanted was a second term to totally destroy our beautiful country.
    Well it is time We The People let Washington know we aren't going to take it any more, I know our problems did not start here, it has been in effect for many years, O is just looking to slam the door on us before he is done, America first, let the others take care of themselves.

      Rocky,
      You are right–these people have gotten this far because of the collusion of the "Press" and the abysmal ignorance and naiveté of the American voter.

      Unless these two problems are corrected, we are lost.

    That will buy a lot of rockets.

      "That will buy a lot of rockets."

      The jihadi regimes supply all the munitions they need. Our US dollars go to Switzerland in PA account slush funds.

    Let us face facts – those who are ruling the American roost are ideologically in sync with Islamic terror goals, even though couched under gobblygook and "human rights".
    The fact of the matter is that the PA/Fatah terror junta is all about inculcating the next generation of suicide bombers, and NOT about building a normal civil(ized) society. Here's some proof – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/01/pa-statehood-

    Never mind all the evidence. The Islamist-in-Chief has his priorities, and jihad is one of them. BTW, he just returned from his foray into Israel, but NOT before indoctrinating Israel's youth – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/24/the-convergen

    Sach ha'kol, at the end of it all, "The One" is on a mission!

      US aid to Israel is what the US citizens realize caused the need in the first place to aid Palestinians.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "US aid to Israel is what the US citizens realize caused the need in the first place to aid Palestinians."

        There is no need to aid terrorists unless you are an enemy of the USA. Are you?

  • tarasbalderdash

    Aside from the obvious anti-Israel elements of this action, what happened to Congress controlling the money? Why is the president and his lackey Kerry permitted to violate the Constitution in this matter? Impeachment is in order for two items: 1) Funding a terrorist state in defiance of Congress 2) Removing the American missile shield in Europe as previously promised to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Oh, but wait. the journalists don't inform the votes of these matters except in the right-wing press and thus: This is what America voted for. Enjoy it, you idiots!

    The Palestinian people are people. The money promised to the Palestinians is for essential products and services.

    What you might want to worry about is that while you're eating your caviar and smoked sturgeon and spending your money on drugs and porn, there are children all over the world with empty stomachs.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Most Americans are not eating caviar or smoked sturgeon. Why should the needs of the Palestinian "people" come before theirs?

    • Cat K

      Um, Peter is this supposed to be an ethnic slur? I think it is aimed at Russians. Caviar is some awful concoction of fish eggs that Russians eat. Wow! You must really dislike Russians. And BTW, the essential products needed by Palestinians are rockets to aim at Jewish homes &schools.

      The palis are savages, letem starve, our budget concerns are more important than their jihadist ambitions, it is a simple love ours, eff theirs.

      the "Palestinians" have money for weapons and explosives to make war,but can't (or won't) feed their own children? Weapons-Grade Stupid.
      Their making war on Israel is the source of their woes.
      Instead of using ammonium nitrate to build bombs and rockets,they need to use it on farms to grow food. Instead of using nails for shrapnel in their bombs,they need to use them to build or repair buildings,establish some commerce,to work for prosperity instead of death and destruction.

      • Kerry Fritz II

        Do you mean the Israel that is illegally occupying their lands or the ones that committed the 09-11-2001 attack on the US ?

      "The Palestinian people are people. The money promised to the Palestinians is for essential products and services."

      It was not their money to promise. And it's not going for anything essential. If they were so concerned about essentials their entire culture would be unrecognizable in comparison to what it actually is.

      "What you might want to worry about is that while you're eating your caviar and smoked sturgeon and spending your money on drugs and porn, there are children all over the world with empty stomachs."

      That's the problem when we listen to emotionally based arguments. The proponents are never satisfied and it always ends like this with delusional accusations used to bite the hand that feeds, but never feeds enough for the leaches to be grateful.

    • Guest

      I just don't care about that, what with almost stale caviar and all.

  • Brujo Blanco

    There is no doubt. Any money given to the Palestinians will finance the murders of Jews and Christians. it is time for America to recognize that the Palestinians are the aggressors and if given the opportunity they will use our money to kill innocents. It is the Palestinians shooting missiles at Jews.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "There is no doubt."

      There never was any doubt.

      "Any money given to the Palestinians will finance the murders of Jews and Christians. it is time for America to recognize that the Palestinians are the aggressors and if given the opportunity they will use our money to kill innocents. It is the Palestinians shooting missiles at Jews."

      They'll always find a way for perfidy but now they just eat a lot better and smoke more imported cigarettes thanks to their jihad conspirators who got themselves involved in our government.

    Is this an Extremist news rag? The Palestinian Preventative Security services in the west bank has been credited for the end of terrorist activities since the second intifada. But, the extremist settler violence goes on unchecked toward the native Palestinian society. Not to mention the 3 billion in cash the US gives to Israel as well as the additional 3 billion in military support which the right wing radicals don't hesitate to rain down the Gaza population. A Ghetto of Israel's creation.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The PPS is largely composed of terrorists

    • Cat K

      No, you are the extremist.

    • Drakken

      Well Jake, why don't you put your money where your jihadist loving mouth is and go join them, I am sure they would love to have you.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Is this an Extremist news rag?"

      Yes. The facts are in extreme contrast to the lies.

      "The Palestinian Preventative Security services in the west bank has been credited for the end of terrorist activities since the second intifada."

      Credited by who?

      "But, the extremist settler violence goes on unchecked toward the native Palestinian society."

      There is yet another extreme lie.

      "Not to mention the 3 billion in cash the US gives to Israel… "

      That's investment. You can't compare commerce and aid to terror organizations unless you're one of the terrorists looking to deceive people.

      "…as well as the additional 3 billion in military support which the right wing radicals don't hesitate to rain down the Gaza population."

      If that was true there would be nobody left alive today. And furthermore, every act of aggression against your beloved terrorists is the fault of those Palestinians who can't build a state, and instead try to destroy the one they hate and envy.

      "A Ghetto of Israel's creation."

      In a sense that's true. They never should have been so generous. It was foolish. You don't give safe haven to mortal enemies who continue to wage total war.

        The term palestinian is a relatively new term. They simply did not exist before they got kicked out of their home country because they couldn't get along with anyone. Why aren't the pasestinians outraged at that, instead of with the Jews?
        Probably becaue a zebra just cannot lose his stirpes – haters have to hate and terrorists have to terrorize. It simply IS who the palestinians are. You can't really blame a dog for dumping on the grass, so we really shouldn't blame the palestinians for dumping on the civilized world.
