Hillary Clinton Overrules Congress To Send U.S. Aid To Her Favorite Terrorists
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has let it be known that she intends to violate congressional holds on U.S. aid to Hamas-ruled Gaza and the 'Palestinian Authority' occupied areas in Judea and Samaria (AKA the West Bank) and release the entire $147 million package forthwith.
A congressional hold on funds is part on the hold on the purse strings by Congress, and has nothing to do with majorities since they are invariably honored no matter who's in the White House. For the Obama Administration to do this is almost unprecedented.
The holds were put on by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fl, and Foreign Operations Subcommittee Chairwoman Senator Kay Granger, R-Texas. Both had previously that they were willing to release part of the funds, around $88.6 million if certain conditions were met. Instead of accepting this compromise, the Obama Administration simply ran over them in their anxiousness to get the 'Palestinians' their jirzyah. And by the way, the funds are going to be released by U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Rajiv Shah, a Muslim of Indian descent whom my sources tell me is close to Muslim Brotherhood tied Rashad Hussein, Obama's hand picked ambassador to the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).
Ros-Lehtinen understands something the Obama Administration and Secretary Clinton either don't want to understand or simply don't care about - that the genocidal Hamas has a primary aim, and that every penny in aid they get from the west frees up more money for their War Against The Jews. Ultimately, it's aiding and abetting terrorism.
As for the 'Palestinian Authority' one would expect the U.S. to be very careful with aid money to them given that the 'Palestinians' glorify terrorists who murder Jewish civilians as heroes, have never even tried to curb the daily incitement against Jews in their mosques, schools and media and tried an end run around treaties they signed by going unilaterally to the UN. And let's not forget that 'Palestinian' Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas is an unelected Dictator who's now busily working on allying Fatah with Hamas and making them a united front against Israel.
"The U.S. has given $3 billion in aid to the Palestinians in the last five years alone, and what do we have to show for it?" Ros-Lehtinen said on Wednesday in a statement to National Journal. "Now the administration is sending even more. Where is the accountability for U.S. taxpayer dollars?"
But remember, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama 'have Israel's back'. With a knife in hand, that is.
