U.S. showers $2.2 billion in bilateral aid on the Palestinians
Since the 1993 Oslo Accords, the U.S. has showered $2.2
billion in bilateral aid on the Palestinians, in addition to more than
$3.4 billion for humanitarian aid funneled through dysfunctional U.N.
organizations since 1950.
The U.S. debt will
top $13.6 trillion this year and climb to an estimated $19.6 trillion
by 2015, according to a Treasury Department report to Congress.
Bankruptcy filings are nearing the record two million level of 2005 and
unemployment is nearly 10%, yet, in mid-June, President Obama pledged a
$400M aid package for supposed housing, schools, water and health care
system projects in the West Bank and Hamas-ruled Gaza. He described
these projects as a "down payment on the U.S. commitment to the people
of Gaza who deserve a chance to take part in building a viable,
independent state of Palestine, together with those who live in the
He must have forgotten that the Gazans first act of
"independence" after the Israeli withdrawal from the territory in 2005
was to destroy the lucrative greenhouse industry that the Israelis left
behind, but that should have served as a reminder of the billions in
aid that have been squandered in pursuit of this pipedream. According
to the Heritage Foundation, since the 1993 Oslo Accords, the U.S. has
showered $2.2 billion in bilateral aid on the Palestinians, in addition
to more than $3.4 billion for humanitarian aid funneled through
dysfunctional U.N. organizations since 1950 – and yet, they are
still considered "refugees." That's because vast amounts of these aid
funds have been diverted to allow terrorist organizations like Hamas to
focus on building its war infrastructure such as bunkers, fortifying
positions and digging tunnels, rather than on subsidizing education,
paving roads, promoting commerce and industry, or providing for and
advancing the long-term interests of their people.
Should Congress approve this aid package, it will only
serve to stabilize the Hamas regime, assist in consolidating its power,
and inhibit the development of the social, political and economic
infrastructures necessary to build a viable, unified and stable
Palestinian state. Hamas's desire for more construction materials has
more to do with rebuilding and strengthening its war machine against
Israel than the needs of ordinary Gazans so it's fair to ask this
administration: "Where's the strategic logic behind this pledge?" Money
is fungible, so where are the assurances and accountability mechanisms
necessary to insure that this money will not be spent on terrorism and
missiles as has occurred in the past?
