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.
How much have we given to the Israelis already this year? Have we surpassed our usual $3B annual gift yet?
Ssshh. The Israel-firsters don't want you bringing up these sort of facts.
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.
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?
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.
