Joe Biden is proud of himself for having provided the Palestinians with $500 million in aid. He apparently regards this as a major geopolitical achievement, not as a moral and geopolitical disaster. He says it has “rebuilt ties” with the Palestinian Authority. A report on his hallucinatory miscomprehension is here: “Biden: ‘We’ve rebuilt ties with Palestinians, restored some $500 million in aid to PA,’” JNS, July 10, 2022:
“The Biden administration has “rebuilt ties” with the Palestinian Authority and restored some $500 million in aid to it “without permitting terrorists to rearm,” Joe Biden wrote in an op-ed published on Saturday night in The Washington Post.
The PA is happy to pocket whatever aid it can inveigle the Biden Administration into giving it. But it has not shown any gratitude in return. It just denounced the Americans for daring to suggest that, even if Israel may have been responsible for the death of Shireen Abu Akleh, her killing was not “intentional” – a conclusion which the Palestinians say constitutes a “betrayal.”
The PA continues with its “Pay-For-Slay” program, which provides generous subsidies to imprisoned terrorists and to the families of terrorists who died during their attacks. In so doing, the PA both rewards past, and incentivizes future, terrorism. The Taylor Force Act was meant to pressure the PA so that it would stop that program. It prohibits giving aid to the PA as long as that “Pay-For-Slay” program continues. The Biden Administration, in providing that half-billion dollars to the PA , is violating the Taylor Force Act; it apparently believes, or pretends to, that there is an exception for “humanitarian aid” in the Act, but there is none. Nor are those subsidies the only way the PA encourages terrorism. It holds terrorists up as heroes, naming schools, streets, squares, and sports competitions after them, plastering city walls with posters of them, making them the much-to-be-admired subjects of radio and television programs.
Obama did the same fucking thing. His dicked-up foreign policy involved aid to Hamas, the PLO, and the Muslim Brotherhood thugs in Egypt. His anti-Israel policies and belligerence all but destroyed our diplomatic relations with Jerusalem.
Biden is picking up where Obama left off.
How fucking depraved do you have to be to think that arming America’s enemies is a good thing?
