Op-Ed: It's Time to Cut US Aid to the Palestinian Authority
Mark LangfanThe writer, who writes on security issues, has created an original educational 3d Topographic Map System of Israel to facilitate clear understanding of the dangers facing Israel and its water supply. It has been studied by US lawmakers and can be seen at www.marklangfan.com.
Apart from all the other issues, with this money from Russia, it's now time to cut all US aid to the Palestinian Authority and Abbas.
And isn't it strange that the same Abbas who is impotent to compromise on "one refugee's right of return" in a "peace" deal is the same Abbas who is omnipotent in transacting oil deals with Russia that deposit a billion dollars into his sovereign Swiss bank account for those very exact same Palestinians?
The real tragedy is that the American and the Israeli "peace-camp" have empowered him to steal from the Palestinians he falsely claims to protect. Western "peace-makers" preen in the Rose Garden, stay in Swiss hotels with dark chocolate squares and turned-down beds and collect Nobel peace prizes, while they have insured that Palestinian Arabs in the Middle East continue to live in garbage-heap-squalor and are ruled by violent terrorist-mobsters.
Third, none of the US and EU funding is getting to the actual Palestinian Arabs in the "West Bank". Abbas can't even pay to have the garbage picked up. Instead, he's busy paying "heroes" who murder Israeli children in their sleep or paying his official television channel to teach new generations of toddlers to want to murder Israeli children in their sleep.
It's way past time to recognize America's experiment in trying to teach the Palestinian Arabs to be Canadians has failed. For every day America leaves Abbas and his band of murderers in power, it will take a year to reteach Palestinian Arabs that Israeli-child-murdering is not the way to paradise.
The time has come for America to admit its aid money to Abbas and the PA is going to terrorism and not peace, and must stop every last penny to the PA.
Instead, monies should be distributed to Israel to dispense to Palestinian Arab municipal authorities that actually pick up the garbage, and grant their children a real education instead of the hate for Israel and America that Abbas has inculcated in untold generations - America's expense.
