U.S. agrees to support terrorist regime

A senior State Department envoy has confirmed that the U.S. will continue to provide aid to the Palestinians, bolstering and supporting the terrorist Hamas organization which now constitutes the government of the Palestinian pseudo-state:

The United States will continue sending humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people even after a Hamas government is formed, a senior U.S. envoy told Palestinian leaders during the first high-level meeting between the two sides since Hamas' election victory.

State Department envoy David Welch said the U.S. continues "to be devoted to the humanitarian needs of the Palestinian people and we shall remain so." Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Welch told Palestinian officials that U.S. aid would be redirected, but Welch did not specify how.

Erekat noted that hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. aid flow directly into infrastructure projects every year, and not into Palestinian government coffers.

"We urged the U.S. administration to continue helping the Palestinian people, as it did in previous years," Erekat said after the meeting. "They have never transferred a single dollar to the Palestinian Authority directly. The money was being transferred via non-governmental organizations."

The U.S. and the EU consider Hamas a terror organization and have threatened to cut off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid if Hamas doesn't abandon its violent campaign against Israel.

Sadly, an empty threat.

It seems we never learn.

You can not distinguish between “humanitarian aid” for a society that chose, in an open election, to be governed by a gang of terrorist thugs and murderers, and the government made up of thugs and murderers. Any and all aid you provide will serve to prop up the government. The people of the Palestinian pseudo-state have chosen to become a terrorist pseudo-state, and any support of the Palestinians is support of terrorism. Period.

Remember “Oil for Food”? Yeah, that was to provide “humanitarian aid” to the Iraqi people. It paid bribes, built palaces, and bought weapons.

Arafat and his cronies stole untold millions, perhaps billions, in “aid” money, money that ended up in their European bank accounts, while pretending, for the benefit of western audiences, that they were unable, despite their best efforts, to stop the terrorist attacks they openly supported and encouraged at home.

Elections are supposed to have consequences. The consequences of electing Hamas, an avowed and unrelenting terrorist organization, should be treatment as a terrorist pseudo-state.

Instead, we will start the Arafat game all over again, where we threaten to cut off aid, and they promise to do what they can to stop the terrorist attacks, and we give them money for telling us what we want to hear.

And look the other way while they do what we say is unacceptable.
