OUTRAGEOUS: Coronavirus Stimulus Bill Funds Hundreds Of Millions In Aid To Palestinians

The coronavirus relief bill released Monday includes $250 million in investment aid for the Palestinians and for encouraging Israeli-Palestinian dialogue in a provision titled the “Nita M. Lowey Middle East Partnership for Peace Act of 2020.”

The provision, named for retiring Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY), is buried deep within the nearly 6,000-page legislative text.

Citing economic stagnation in the Palestinian Territories, and the potential for economic development to encourage peace, the Lowey Act would spend $50 million per year for the next five years. A version of the act passed the House in July.

The act would create the “People-to-People Partnership for Peace Fund,” run by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to “provide funding for projects to help build the foundation for peaceful co-existence between Israelis and Palestinians and for a sustainable two-state solution.”

  1. It isn’t in the coronavirus relief package. It is part of the omnibus spending bill that the relief package was attached to. An equal amount is included for Israel in this program, which has bipartisan support and is supported by AIPAC. The usual anti-Israel crowd is attacking this on social media.
