Barack Obama Announces $400m
Aid Package To Gaza And West Bank

by Harriet Sherwood - June 9th, 2010 - London Guardian

President Barack Obama said today the US would send $400m of aid to the Palestinian territories following 10 days of international focus on Gaza, which Israel has blockaded for more than three years.

The announcement came as Obama met the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, in Washington to discuss the progress of proximity talks between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as the dire situation in Gaza. Most US aid currently goes to the West Bank. The international community has largely focused on building up Abbas's authority over recent years, and Gaza, whose de facto Hamas government is not recognised by the US or the UK, has been marginalised.

This is on top of anther $800 million in aid to the Palestinians only recently approved by Barack Obama and our Democrat congress. Our non-Muslim President seems to find it reasonable to send aid to Muslim terrorist groups even though they have not given any indication they will stop diverting this aid to their war against Israel.

This is consistent with his belief that we should talk to terrorists and evil governments. He is simply making it easier to talk with them by giving them aid from the American tax payer while requiring no action on their part to cease their violence against citizens in Israel. It is not consistent with his refusal to talk with the President of BP who he obviously considers to be significantly more evil than Hamas.

Over a billion dollars of American tax payer money has now gone to fund the war against Israel. Think the Israelis recognize that America is now funding their enemy?
