Humanitarian (?) help

According to, 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.


  1. Am I surprised by these latest developments? Heck no! But so transparently when the country is moving from a recession into a depression? Heck yes! 900 million? Where's the petition for me to sign???

    As for the fact that the recipients are our sworn enemies, you stated it much better than I ever could.

    Hashem, don't we warrant Mosiach yet?

  2. I tried to look for it online, but so far no success. I guess no one wants to go on record as opponent of humanitarian help for women and children. Or maybe the news is too fresh, so no one had a chance. The Congress has to approve this yet, but I am positive it won't be a problem.

  3. I can't believe that we are considering a $900 million gifdt to the Palestinians! What are they thinking. Where was the rest of the world when the people of New Orleans needed help? We are always helping people and they turn around and knife us in the back. Enough!! Let them help themselves and maybe they won't be so quick to harass the people of Israel. At this point in time we need all the help we can get. It is not the time to be sending jobs and money abroad.
