According to cnn.com, U.S. is offering $900M to Palestinians. That's almost a billion dollars, ladies and gents. Is this a part of some stimulus package? If yes, what kind of activity is it supposed to stimulate? Hamas and terrorism come to mind. Oh, wait, they thought about that!
She (Hillary, that is) said the U.S. aid package -- which must be approved by Congress -- has been "designed in coordination with the Palestinian Authority" to make sure the money "does not end up in the wrong hands."
Clinton was referring to the Hamas leadership of Gaza, which the United States has designated a terrorist organization. The Palestinian Authority, based in the West Bank, is led by President Mahmoud Abbas, whose Fatah party is a bitter rival of Hamas.
Silly me! After all, Fatah recruits among the most kind-hearted and gentle souls. And as long as political geniuses decided to "make sure" Hamas won't get the money, I can sleep well at night, not worrying that my taxes are arming terrorists and being used against my family and friends.
Supposedly, most of the money will go to Palestinians in Gaza as a humanitarian help. That's over $600/head. Something tells me that those in real need, Palestinian women and children, a.k.a. the human shields, will scarcely see a penny of it. That "something" also tells me that I will not sleep well at night.
