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, ‚Äúare 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,‚ÄĚ Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the director of the Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center and one of the lawyers on the case, told The Daily Caller. ‚ÄúSo they find themselves in a very weird situation where their tax money is going actually to attacks against them,‚ÄĚ she added....

Governments are quite adept at doing the dumb, as the article indicates. This isn't the only time.
It's the lies we should have problem with, lies designed for the purpose of hurting the public, while pretending the lack of funding from Congress is causing it. If funding were lacking, there would be no tanks and F-16s for Egypt. No one calls the admin on lies, so no one questions the purpose of sending offensive (not defensive) weapons to Egypt. How we pay off Egypt to play nicely with offensive weapons we gave them out of our lack of funds for white house tours and air traffic controllers remains a mystery.

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.

Jennifer P.W., The government knows what they are doing and our elected officials know what's best for us. If that means Islamazation, or whatever, then it must be in our best interest. Don't fight it.
I listened to the attached commentary last night. I've never read the Koran but learned that it's really useless because it would just cause confusion. What was interesting to learn is how different Muslims come up with their radical views. They use the different Suras(sp?) For their understanding and interpretations. There is much more to it and the commentary, but it was a decent primer. The Dr who was Interviewed has a book out on it that I might get. Can't recall the name right now.
Ah, Mike of N.Y., (by the way, concerning this article, "Two wrongs don't make a right!") Perhaps, you like Fox News better? Bush Administration Debates Renewing Palestinian Aid. There wasn't much debate, Baby Bush did renew the aid, and the "police," that were trained are part of the army that shoots at Israelis.
Oh, by the way, gentlemen, I never voted for Baby Bush -- I only regret that I didn't vote for the Democrats that were running against him. Unfortunately, any such vote would have been a protest vote, as my Presidential votes indeed were.
For you others you're going to have supply your own regurgitation bags. Anyway, jpw, remember I brought you how good locusts were in Israel, and now I bring you how bad fracking is in the USA. Oh, it has a bunch of other comments on natural foods -- and water. I'm just going have to resist being so helpful.
I saw video footage of a programmer who worked for a particular politician in helping him get elected, giving testimony in a court case.... the point is, when the votes are computerized, how on earth do you know they are correct? what if its preprogrammed to go 51/49 for a particular candidate?
another tradition ... that is transparency in the voting process, or ability to verify votes through locally elected public servants has been lost in many counties.
would that be the voters fault?
I would also challenge again your "politically correct" interpretation. There is a strategy going on, its very out in the open, from one foreign adventure to the next. they've got us islamizing ourselves.
I've watched evangelicals go down the bll f rhgts, slashing them one by one for "safety" and their greatest complaint is that the "liberals" aren't going far enough...... they are really crying "give us more"! I can imagine God going, you want more persecution of CHristians in the ME, you want more destablizing of nations, watching interl extreme groups sent in to moderate mus countries to cause dispersion of peoples, well there you go, you can have it too.
jpw writes: Christopher -- perhaps the turning over of our inherited conhl rghts for martial law... is the islamization process. in that case, who's the "stupid" ones?
I'd still go with our government, because they are the politically correct monsters who have the final say as to what gets done and what direction is taken. Not to mention that they are all above the law so they can do pretty much anything without repercussion. However, I know what you are saying. This is the reason I rarely comment on anything political; because I usually get taken to task due to such a wide array of views. The American people, I guess, have allowed the changes to take effect. The problem is that most welcome the changes we have and are undergoing because they continue to elect and blindly support the wrong people.

Knee hurt yet, Jim? As you get older, this will take its toll you know.
But if Paul Mulshine of the New Jersey Star Ledger says so, it must be true.

Ever the liars and hypocrites, this bunch."
They give F-16's, Tanks, boatloads of our hard earned money, etc, to our radical extremist Islamic brothers, the same "brothers" who want to kill us. How stupid can this government be? Mr Obama won't even identify radical Islamic Jihadists...it's not even in his vocabulary, not unlike, terrorists, radical Muslims, etc, he won't even say the words because this country has become a pathetic, politically correct joke; the laughing stock of the rest of the world. The FBI even purged any references to radical Islam, Jihad, etc, because it was offensive. What a stinking joke.
"The Obama administration also argued that the courts have no business getting involved in foreign policy decisions that are inherently ‚Äúpolitical questions.‚ÄĚ"

But as I've said all along, if we are going to play this game around the world, causing the martydom of believers, then why will God protect us from the same movement and maneuvers coming here? I always have hope that believers will repent and open their eyes, but what I saw after the takedown in Boston this week were young people cheering in the streets. yes, we will cheer for this, much like the Iqs first did when SH was captured, then later had to flee... what they thought was stability was actually the beginnings of sorrows.
