US accelerates funding to PA with $150 million transfer (More Muslim Outreach from Obama)
Jerusalem Post ^ | 11/10/2010 | HILARY LEILA KRIEGER

WASHINGTON – The US sped up delivery of $150 million in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority Wednesday, citing the need to fill an urgent budget shortfall.

“This figure underscores the strong determination of the American people and this administration to stand with our Palestinian friends even during difficult economic times,” declared US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in announcing the aid, which was taken from the $200 million the Obama administration plans to allocate to the PA in 2011.

“We need to work with the Palestinian Authority to support their efforts to build toward a future Palestinian state that is able to govern itself, uphold its responsibilities to provide for its own people, and ensure security,” Clinton said at the State Department Wednesday, with PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad participating by video conference. “Progress on this second track gives confidence to negotiators, removes excuses for delay, and underscores that the Palestinian Authority has become a credible partner for peace.”

Senior administration officials pointed to a year-end shortfall in the Palestinian Authority’s budget as the driving factor behind the timing of Wednesday’s announcement.

Just another $150 million for the poor impoverished kleptomaniacs at the PA? I can't imagine a better investment.

They’d rather buy guns and rockets than eat-which they will.

Families with children are losing their homes here because there are no jobs. But this disgusting failure of a president is far more concerned about our Muslim enemies and bails them out so they can spend more on missiles to fire toward Israel.
When will some brave patriot start impeachment rolling?

House Pubs should look at all these bribes to the jihadist-sharia types and defund them immediately.

Do they just directly deposit it into the Swiss bank accounts of the PA leaders or do they make them take it to their ATMs?

Our “Palestinian friends” - yeah, right.

Here we are being told we have to cut back on everything while Obama and his minions are running all over the world doling out our money to Muslims who hate us.

He is treasonous slime. He is destroying us and gloating over our demise.

“”This figure underscores the strong determination of the American people.....””

“”which was taken from the $200 million the Obama administration plans to allocate to the PA in 2011. “”

And we won’t see any further increase in that figure next year, will we? No siree!!! Nope - not one red cent.

How much more are they going to get away with before this country explodes?

Wonderful, the Washington DC trash is putting us into even more debt to help out the trash in Pali World. Does it make any sense to anyone why we continue to throw money at every thug and dictator in the world? We can’t afford lower taxes? Are they this stupid to believe that we are this stupid?

Great. Wonder what else is going to happen to us becuase we continually bless the enemies of Israel and curse Israel? Was sort of hoping we woke up with the Gulf oil spill...

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin:

"The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them."

Hell, were doing one better; we are GIVING them the $$$ to use against us and our Aly (at least for the time being, until Dear Leader sells them down the river) Israel!

This F-N, SOB, makes Carter seem positively "Presidential" in comparison!

At first reading I thought this was from The Onion.

Unfortunately, not in the foreseeable future. We've been throwing hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars the squating Arab terrorists' way annually for decades now.

Business as usual. Terrorism is a product funded by US taxpayers.

Oh, but there is more. Mosque Makeovers With your Tax Dollar

Hillary aims to make the "two-state solution" her crowning achievement -- something no one else has been able to accomplish. THE (so-called) peace deal. She'll be trying to outshine Obama throughout the whole process, hoping the world (and more importantly, the American electorate) will see it as her accomplishment, not Bambi's. And then she'll make her move to win the Rat nomination in '12.

What concerns me is that the two major deals involving the Israelis and Arabs were brokered by American Democrats and Israeli Likudniks -- Carter/Begin (Camp David Accords), and Clinton/Rabin (Oslo Accords). ...which of course is what we have now. Hopefully Bibi doesn't cave.
