Because most people get their news from the lamestream press, they don’t know that 10% of all the money we give to the Palestinian Authority goes to pay bonuses to terrorists and to the widows of “martyrs”.
It’s been estimated that ten percent of the Palestinian Authority’s budget is paid to families of jailed and ‘martyred’ terrorists. Since the mid-1990s, the United States has committed over $5 billion in bilateral economic and non-lethal aid to the Palestinians. Just last year, American taxpayers paid $442 million in aid to the Palestinians. That works out in essence to $44 million in U.S. taxpayer money being handed over to terrorists and their families.
Last summer in front the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Yigal Carmon, the president of the Middle East Media Research Institute, gave a testimony explaining this pressing, persistent problem: the financial and other support given by the Palestinian Authority to those who have continued their terrorist activities.
According to Carmon, the Palestinian Authority earmarked $137.8 million in the 2016 budget for prisoners convicted of terrorism and their families, and $172.5 million for the families of “martyrs.” He added that they have been using money “granted by donor countries for this purpose, and by doing so, has made them complicit in encouraging terrorism as well.”
Obama kept the flow of money going to the terrorists, knowing that the money pays for terrorists or maybe because of it. Even as he was walking out the door, he tried to supply them with another 221 million dollars. President Trump put a quick end to that as soon as he took the reins of government.
No more is the United States under the Obama Rule:
“Government of the terrorists, by the terrorists, for the terrorists, shall not perish from the Earth.” Barack Obama
