While You Pay for Bailouts, Obama and Clinton Want to Give $900M to Palestinians

Once funds are approved by Congress, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will begin a new million-dollar scholarship program to help Palestinian students enroll at Palestinian and American universities in the 2010-11 academic year. (If U.S. universities want to give scholarships to international students, that's great, but this is just one more inexcusable misuse of taxpayer money).

  • The money is in addition to $900-million in aid to the Palestinian Authority announced by the secretary last week at the donors’ conference, in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.


About a third of the U.S. taxpayer money -- $300 million -- is directly slated for Gaza...Wait a second, doesn't the militant group, Hamas, control Gaza?
Doesn't that mean money is being given to a group labeled terrorists by the U.S.?
Should we be surprised?
The American middle class can fund Palestinian education, (along with a favorite terrorist group of their choice), as well as in-state tuition for illegal aliens. Unfortunately, it will not be able to fund its own children’s education. The U.S. can’t even pay off our State and Federal budgets, and we are “giving” $ away again?!
Forcing the American people to bail out banks and financial firms, irresponsible homeowners, and now Palestine, proves our leaders in Washington are completely out of control. We have no business rebuilding other nations!


Do you really think that we would have any control of that money once it gets into their hands anyway?
