re: Obama giving $500 million to the Palestinians on this trip.


How much have we given to the Israelis already this year? Have we surpassed our usual $3B annual gift yet?

Are you against all foreign aid or only foreign aid to people you don't like?

Here's an idea, stop trying to save everyone else, get debt free and do some local saving for a while, let china save the world for a while, we need much improvement at home starting with debt payments.

Why would he give a shite about his poll numbers? He's not running for anything, and that pile of useless crisp won reelection with similar poll numbers.

He cares about his poll numbers not because he cares about the voters, dead ones, mental institute ones, or otherwise.

He cares about the polls as they are his only measure to see if his alinsky schemes of blame everybody are working.

This. Why is it that America has to save everybody and try to engage in nation building. Let the other countries fend for themselves. How much money does the US spend on foreign aid each year? I bet you could pay down a good portion of the debt each year with that money.

Obama should give the Palestinians one of those platinum coins. He should just round off and mint one for a cool billion and that way he'd save on minting costs for next year.

There is a big difference.

I haven't seen any Jews jijacking planes and crashing them into our buildings. Instead I've seen them fighting the Jihadists on the front lines and away from us.

The Palestinians, and their allies are part of the same crowd who we are fighting in Iran, Iraq, and in Afghanistan. No they all aren't in the same group; but they are allies in the sense they all want the great satan(us) destroyed.

3 billion to Israel or 3 billion to Solyndra and co. I vote for Israel.

In return, will they recognize Israel's right to exist and stop the terrorist bombings? Didn't think so.

I vote for neither since both are black holes from which nothing returns.

Hmmm......thanks AIPAC

Israel has "no greater friend than the United States," President Barack Obama said Wednesday on his first state trip to the country.

1) I didn't we were fighting in Iran. When did that war start?

2) You're judging Palestinians based on the actions of other Arabs and Muslims. Are you also okay with folks judging you collectively based on the actions of others from your race or religion?

Iran is sponsoring fighters all over the middle east. Tha tis beyond a shadow of a doubt. We are fighting Iran. We aren't fighting in Iran, but we are fighting that gang that is in Iran.

I'm judging the Palestinians on who they elected to represent them. Hamasis a terrorist group. It has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with terrorism and those that want to hurt America.

The Palestine people are tools, and are used by Iran, syria and the other Arabs to tug at our hearts and to attack Israel.

None of my beliefs have anything to do with religion and everything to do with the way the Palestinians, Arabs, Jihadists, etc. behave.

State Department spokeswoman Nuland says aid money frozen by Congress for months freed up as Palestinians ace worst economic crisis in years

The United States has quietly unblocked almost $500 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority which had been frozen by Congress for months, a top US official said Friday.

The news that the funds had finally been freed up came after US President Barack Obama met top Israeli and Palestinian leaders in a landmark visit to Israel and the West Bank earlier this week.

“To date, we have moved $295.7 million in fiscal year 2012 money… and $200 million in fiscal year 2013 assistance,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.

The Obama administration also notified Congress in late February that it was seeking a further $200 million to fund US Agency for International Development (USAID) programs for the Palestinians, she said. [...]

Congress froze the US administration’s requests for funds.

And Israel, which also strongly opposed the move, said it was suspending monthly transfers of the tax and tariff revenue it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the wake of the decision.

What about America being in our worst economic crisis in years? Why does Obama care about the Palestinians being broke? If they are broke that means the fighting part of war ends. We are broke, who will send US money?

And how did Obama (The United States) unfreeze these funds from congress? And why was it done quietly?

I think I will write Obama and Lurch Kerry a letter; asking them to give me 500 million and to unfreeze 500 million more after they give me my measley billion.
