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 Authoritys budget as the driving factor behind the timing of Wednesdays announcement.

They’d rather buy guns and rockets than eat-which they will.
Great - paying for their war against us. :(:(:(
WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS END?????????????????????
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?
And yet they can’t give the seniors their cost of living increase ... my grandad who usually gets like an extra $30 a month ...
No problem, the one will just get a lot of it back in the form of campaign contributions in 2012.
Those bastards have a hell of a lot of nerve thieving from me to pay to those murdering scum.
House Pubs should look at all these bribes to the jihadist-sharia types and defund them immediately.
Pinging everyone in case it’s missed on the ATRW thread.
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.
We are funding terrorists. We are doomed with this current bunch of elitist ass-sniffers.
“”This figure underscores the strong determination of the American people.....””
Ah! Hillary - you don’t have a clue as to what the American people think of this....and who let you back in the country anyway?
“”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?
Insanity on parade for one and all to see.
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...
"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!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
At first reading I thought this was from The Onion.
I heard Mrs Clinton announce this. As a nation, we are as dumb as we look.
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.
Oh, but there is more. Mosque Makeovers With your Tax Dollar
The saying goes, "you get what you pay for." Taxed Enough Already?
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.
