No Funding For Hamas

Apparently our president has decided that we will not be sending any funds to the Palestinian state since Hamas, a terrorist organization, won in the elections.

We contribute about a quarter of the $1.6B funding for the Palestinian state including Aid Agencies, through the U.N. and directly.

Recently German's new Chancellor Merkel snubbed Hamas by saying she will not visit while on a trip to Israel.

There is also talk of discontinuing funding from Germany, the second largest sole contributor to the Palestinian state if memory serves me. But I expect this to be all talk and no action as usual with the Eurotards.

Captain's Quarters a pleasant post regarding this.
