The Tel Aviv-based Shurat HaDin-Israel Law Center, representing 24 Americans living in Israel, filed a civil action lawsuit against the State Department last November claiming that the U.S. government is funding Palestinian terrorism in the West Bank and Gaza.
The plaintiffs, some of whom have been victims of Palestinian terrorism, âare fearful that the money that is going to the Palestinian Authority eventually winds up in the hands of the terrorist organizations that can be facilitated to carry out attacks against them,â Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the director of the Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center and one of the lawyers on the case, told The Daily Caller. âSo they find themselves in a very weird situation where their tax money is going actually to attacks against them,â she added....
You know this article isn't too bad at all, and Congress has the responsibility to:
"Whatever happens to the lawsuit, Congress needs to step up immediately and investigate the Obama administrationâs handling of U.S. aid to the Palestinians through bilateral and United Nations channels. It should hold hearings on whether its current oversight, vetting, monitoring, and evaluation requirements are being met or whether they need to be further tightened. It should assess whether it is time to scale back or end those Palestinian aid programs that are most vulnerable to abuse. Even one dollar of U.S. taxpayersâ money that is allowed to be diverted to pay for support of Palestinian terrorists because of lax oversight is one dollar too much." which is the last paragraph of the article. This is one group of people who should not be getting money from us. By the way, The Beleaguered Christians of The Palestinian-Controlled Areas. Some of you should read, Myths About Israel and Palestine, for further enlightenment.

Silence...good answer. Otherwise, I would have used my proprietary super duper, top secret, covert, totally awesome, first name sniffing software. All I need us a first name and within 30 seconds, I know everything about you. You're a smart one. Shhh...don't tell anyone...I'm keeping it eyes only, 007, super secret.

Definitely Christopher's attempt not your post not trying to criticize him either.
I have yet to understand Jim from Lincoln's reasoning. An article criticizing the practice of the current administration that is having an effect on us now, is always met with, well what about what Bush did. Who cares? Two wrongs don't make a right. Not sure why you insist on using a derogatory term when referring to an ex-president, does that some how boost you up? I can't go and shoot my neighbors dog for barking in the middle of the night and say, hey look what the Boston bombers did my isn't as bad as that.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Mike of N.Y., why should I not complain about ongoing programs? I complained about The Faith-Based Initiative and âCharitable Choiceâ: Harmful to Religious Liberty and Civil Rights It was wrong when Baby-faced Bush started and it hasn't suddenly become right with a change in Presidents. Actually Presidents seem to be extremely studious on carrying on the work of the ones before them. Ah, but here's a commentary that was just put up yesterday! --a little more recent than 10 years ago \Obama and Bush, distinct men with policy overlaps ---
So Jim what do you think of the administration lying about funds to the FAA(thanks US) and closing white house tours because of "sequestration cuts" while simultaneously sending tanks and F-16s to the muslim brotherhood?
I understand your discomfort at dealing with what's going on today, so I have a suggestion. Instead of redirecting your responses into the ether, save post space. Just write "Baby-faced Bush" as your complete response to anything. Consider it an efficiency move.
jpw! I thought you would be jumping up and down for joy for Full Show: The Toxic Assault on Our Children. You mean you supported Baby-faced Bush's exemption of oil/gas industries from polluting water supplies Personally, I think the woman in the show went overboard, as many Greenies do. But hey, she probably supports many of your positions.

The infamous emoticon bandit is how I know if my posts are any good. So far, I've only got eyes down with head shaking no, no, no! Never know why they are a no-go but I'll keep trying. The consistent lack of approval is getting me down. I just wish he/she would tell me where I'm going wrong.
Mike wrote: You go back 10 years to find an article you suppose counters todays giving of actual offensive weapons to Egypt's muslim brotherhood? Really? While the admin simultaneously closes White House tours, and lays off of air traffic controllers due to lack of funds due to "sequestration cuts"? It doesn't work, Jim. Your protection of this admin. reminds of the way the media is protecting Islam, separating it from the "young man" who set off the bombs. They have difficulty dealing with the issues as they are. Next you'll be calling for registration of pressure cookers.
Hey Mike, trust all is well. Just an interesting note on the air traffic controllers furloughed for the sequestration "cuts". (figures used are for illustrative purposes only, not sure of actual budget) It turns out the FAA has no cuts. They requested, say 200 million to be budgeted to be fully operational for this fiscal year, congress gave them 225 million and after the "cuts" they still have 205 million allocated. So, they still have more money than they request to be fully functional for this fiscal year. Another ploy by the administration to distort the so called cuts and their effect on the American people.
well, good guess on the name, but the letters are not actually my name and you won't be able to guess.... and if you learn anything about the Koran, I'm sure you will have audience here. and for the emoticon maker on the loose, try to figure out this one....
