US Aid Indirectly Helps Hamas Terror Organization Due To PA Unity Deal


This touches upon a comment I made earlier regarding the unity deal between Hamas and the PA. If supporting Hamas is to support Islamic terror, what does that now make all those who support the Palestinian Authority after a Hamas-PA unity deal? Regardless, the fact of the matter is that the PA always has and always will support violent jihad and the destruction of the Jewish State, along with the extermination of every last Jewish man, woman and child who remains in Israel. If Western governments supporting the PA (not to mention Syrian “rebels”) doesn’t already constitute state sponsorship of terrorism, then what will? …

By Paul Alster, FoxNews – “The Palestinian Authority’s announcement that it will send 3,000 police officers to Gaza as part of a unity agreement with Hamas could mean U.S. taxpayers are now at least indirectly helping an officially designated terror organization maintain law and order — and its grip on power.

The police deployment came as part of a deal between the mainly secular government of the West Bank and the radical Islamist regime of Hamas that rules in Gaza. That agreement effectively ended hopes for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process championed by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, but it also raises questions about U.S. foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority going forward. Since the U.S. subsidizes the PA budget to the tune of approximately $400 million per year, any effort to help Hamas indirectly spends U.S. dollars, say observers in Israel. That could be prohibited by U.S. policy, if it is read as part of a power-sharing agreement.

‘No aid is permitted for a power-sharing PA government that includes Hamas as a member, or that results from an agreement with Hamas and over which Hamas exercises ‘undue influence,’ unless the President certifies that the PA government, including all ministers, has accepted the following two principles… (1) Recognition of ‘the Jewish state of Israel’s right to exist’ and (2) acceptance of previous Israeli-Palestinian agreements,’ Jim Zanotti, a specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs, wrote in a report last September for the Congressional Research Service titled ‘U.S. Foreign Aid to the Palestinians.’

Those conditions have been met by the PA [ICA Edit: The Palestinian Authority has not met these conditions. PA President Abbas refuses to accept Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and “will never” recognize it as such], but Hamas, under whose control Gaza has continued to be a launching pad for cross-border missile attacks into Israel and a safe haven for Islamic Jihad and even Al Qaeda, steadfastly refuses to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist and is reportedly pressuring the PA to cease security co-operation with Israel in the West Bank. Zanotti’s report, however, highlights a clause that might leave wiggle room for the PA to avoid losing U.S. support.” Read more.

    I bet our disaster relief for our country is about 0.05% of the amount of aid that our government gives to other countries that depend on us to support them. While their Leaders get rich off us.
