Giving money to Abbas for Palestine is like giving money to the enemy. Not necessarily that Abbas is our enemy – although they hate Israel, but that both Hamas and Fatah get access to this money.
This is a direct violating of U.S law. President Obama always did whatever he wanted but it is illegal to give funds to known terrorist group. 18 U.S. Code § 2339B – Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations.
Under President Obama we have been giving funds to Hamas for years. It’s an established fact that is illegal. They are a listed terrorist organization. As long as Fatah is giving the Palestinian Authority money it is illegal for us to give them anything. Furthermore, what is not generally known is that both Fatah and Hamas pay blood money to families of terrorist killed while attacking Jews. If the terrorist is detained and put in prison Fatah gives both them and their families an annual payout. Then a large sum is given to these terrorist upon release from prison. The last thing Americans want is to do is give terrorist money funded by American Aide. They already use aide from around the world via the U.N.
US officials told the PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Tuesday that the funds were not expected to be handed over in the immediate future, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. On Tuesday, the State Department said it was reviewing the last-minute decision by former secretary of state John Kerry to send the funds to the Palestinians despite objections to the transfer by congressional Republicans.
Am I sorry Trump suspended this aid to Palestine? No, President Trump is spot on. The Palestinian Authority is spending more than $5 million per month in salaries for 5,500 convicted and alleged terrorists imprisoned in Israel — payments that defy congressional rules for U.S. funding to the PA, according to a new report from an Israeli research institute.
Palestinian Media Watch released a report last week that found that all Palestinian and Israeli minority Arabs in Israeli prisons for terror acts have been legally receiving a monthly salary from the PA under a new law passed in April that simply formalizes what has long been a PA practice.
“The U.S. funds the PA’s general budget. Through the PA budget, the U.S. is paying the salaries of terrorist murderers in prison and funding the glorification and role modeling of terrorists,” the report reads.
There you have it. It is ludicrous to continue funding the enemy. President Trump know that. With his America First policy, Trump will no doubt stop funding the enemy.
