LATE STAB: US Sent $221 Million To Palestinians In Obama’s Last Hours

13

The AP reports this afternoon that officials contend that the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday. The aides said written notification dated Jan. 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of office.

The AP points out that Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated.

  1. The רשעות of these two men is incredible. Can’t they be indicated or at least a probe into their giving my tax dollars away to Iran, supporters of terror and the Palestinians too? Why is there no one to have to answer to? Is this not a democracy?

  2. From his last days one can see who were his closest. The drug dealers and Palestinians.
    Couldn’t have defined it clearer than Obama did.

  5. No groissa chidushim here. What’s crazy is that there are frum people out there who still don’t support Trump. That they don’t see the obvious is quite sad, and that they comment against him in this forum is very unfortunate

  6. What chidushim!!!
    A radical supports socialism,
    A Muslim supports terrorism,
    And a מכת חושך stabs in the back.

    Which of these was previously unknown?

  7. We should work quickly to get it back,for an entity threatening violence against both the U.S. and Israel, they shouldn’t get a penny until they stop threatening and stop doing violence.

  8. and what about all the state secrets this yimach shmo’nik knows that he will sell to the highest bidder? will he then be subject to what amounts to the house arrest of jonathan pollard whose ‘secrets’ are more than 30 years old?

  9. Whatever. From now on, if he wants to send money to the palestinian entity, it will have to be his own money and not the taxpayer’s.
