    Re: Palestinian |Hamas | Fatah | Gaza |West Bank |

    Shame the number does not have a few more zeros after it. I'd like to see then entire West Bank covered with new developments. Better that then handing the ground over to the terrorist breeders and have Gaza part duex. Linky-dinky is an AFP bit so you know it'll have a Pally friendly tilt to say the least.

    . . .
    Settlements in both the West Bank and east Jerusalem are viewed as illegal under international law and major stumbling blocks to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians want for their own state.
    . . .
    Yawn... "occupied West Bank"... "It's illegal to build on your own land"... SSDD from the leftist media outlets. Hope Israel moves right on in and does whatever the hell they want.

    Damn fuggin fantastic!

    State Department freezes Obama’s $221m gift to Palestinians

    Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.


    The Trump administration announced it is freezing the move.


    The State Department is reviewing the last-minute decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221 million dollars to the Palestinians.


    Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.


    The funds — supposedly intended for reconstruction in Gaza and good governance programs for the Palestinian Authority — were being blocked by at least two Republican lawmakers— Ed Royce (R-CA), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger (R-TX), who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — in response to Palestinian attempts to join international organizations, from which it intended to launch more international campaigns against Israel and before a peace deal with Israel.


    Such holds are generally respected but are not legally binding.


    When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “[Trump] is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”

    We'd get a lot more cooperation from the terrorist breeders if we stopped paying them anything at all. Let the Saudis and their pals fund them completely if they are so worried. Or better yet, let them all migrate there.

    Hey Hamas.. go eff yourself. Hope we make the move.

    Hamas warns Trump not to move embassy to Jerusalem


    A Hamas spokesperson is warning President Donald Trump that following through with his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would "add more oil on the fire" in the region, Al Jazeera reported on Wednesday.

    "[Trump] has to make a choice whether he wants to create peace in the region or he wants to add more oil on the fire," Osama Hamdan, the spokesman for Gaza-based Islamic militant group, told the news outlet.

    He added that Palestinians will not "abandon Jerusalem" and will not "abandon their rights."

    During his presidential campaign, Trump promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in an effort to demonstrate U.S. commitment to its ally.

    Last week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer hinted that the Trump team has not fully evaluated the potential move. He told The New York Times that the administration is "at the very beginning stages of even discussing the subject."

    Trump Admin, Congress Behind Effort to Cut U.S. Aid to Palestinians


    Bill would stop taxpayer support to Palestinian government


    The White House is signaling its support for a new congressional effort to cut all U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority due to its continued support of terrorism against Israelis and Americans, according to senior lawmakers and senior White House officials.

    Leading lawmakers in the House and Senate gathered Tuesday on Capitol Hill to introduce legislation that would cut all U.S. funding to the Palestinian government, which has been criticized for providing financial incentives to terrorists who kill American and Israeli civilians.

    The White House signaled its support for the legislation in a vast departure from the Obama administration, which worked against similar efforts when in power.

    A senior White House official familiar with the effort told the Free Beacon that the Trump administration welcomes this effort and will sign it into law if it passes Congress.

    "The Palestinian Authority's use of its resources to provide material support for terrorism—indiscriminately targeted at American and Israeli civilians—is a grotesque example of how well-intentioned U.S. generosity can be turned against us," a senior White House official told the Free Beacon.

    The legislation, which aims to tighten the financial noose on the Palestinian government and force it to abandon its practice of paying terrorists, is a first step to reforming the notoriously corrupt government, the official said.

    "This legislation highlights practical steps the PA can take to demonstrate a real commitment to ending the vicious cycle of hatred and violence that has prevented the Palestinian people from the prosperity and security they could otherwise be enjoying," the official said.

    The new legislative effort, titled the Taylor Force Act after an American who was killed in a Palestinian terror attack, cuts off all U.S. aid to the Palestinians as a direct response to its longstanding policy of paying salaries to terrorists and supporting those imprisoned for terrorist attacks.

    "We can't continue to financially support a government who looks to the so-called martyrs schedule," said Sen. Roy Blunt (R., Mo.), who is spearheading the effort alongside Sens. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Tom Cotton (R., Ark.).
    "It's an outrageous concept to be in law anywhere," Blunt said. "You can either stop doing what you’re doing or you won't have our money at least to do it with."

    "We shouldn't allow killers and ruthless attackers to become recognized as martyrs in a system that we're part of," Blunt added.

    The Palestinian Authority receives around $300 million in aid annually from U.S. taxpayers. Lawmakers backing the bill expressed concern that at least a portion of this money is funding the Palestinian government-backed policy of paying salaries to terrorists imprisoned in Israeli jails.

    "Most Americans have no idea this is a problem," Graham said. "Not only are Israelis victims of this practice, Americans are victims of this practice. We're going to change this. We're going to get the Palestinian Authority's attention by withholding their money."

    Graham also noted that "anti-Semitism is on the rise" in America. The bill represents an effort to push back against this.
    "I want people to understand who America is when it comes to the one and only Jewish state," Graham said.
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), who has long backed similar efforts, told the Free Beacon it is long past due for Congress to take the lead on this effort now that Obama administration officials can no longer lead efforts to block it.

    "After eight years of the Obama administration, the U.S. must take long overdue action to hold the Palestinian leadership accountable for incentivizing and rewarding acts of terrorism," Cruz told the Free Beacon. "Roughly $300 million annually is provided in monthly salaries and benefits to terrorists jailed in Israel, their families, and the families of those who died committing such horrific atrocities against Israeli and American citizens, including Taylor Force. Enough is enough. We must stand up for victims of Palestinian terrorism. No more U.S. taxpayer dollars should be provided until the Palestinian leadership stops engaging in this heinous practice. The incitement and glorification of terrorism must end."
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
