Underneath Obama, terrorists had a hay day with the continual flow of American tax dollars being funneled to their countries. But unfortunately for them, there’s a new sheriff in town. And now that President Trump is in office, these terrorists are getting a harsh dose of reality of what happens when their terrorist leader is suddenly not in power.
Most Americans are only partially aware of the actions that our government takes and the consequences of those actions. For instance, most people are not even aware that a portion of the money that we give to the Palestinian Authority goes to pay bonuses to terrorists and to the widows of “martyrs.”
A well-known euphemism in government says, “If you subsidize something, you get more of it. If you tax it, you get less of it.” There is a long list of examples of this pretense from higher education to business taxes and there’s a huge debate over whether or not the federal government should be more or less involved in these areas.
However, the United States is also indirectly subsidizing the activities of terrorist organizations and the movements that we publicly admonish as the “war against terror.” Most Americans would be revolted, if they only knew that we are in effect paying for terrorism through our aid to the Palestinian Authority.
An estimated ten percent of the Palestinian Authority’s subsidized budget is actually paid to families of jailed and “martyred” terrorists. Since the mid-1990s, the United States has committed over $5 billion in bilateral economic aid to the Palestinians. Just this past year, American taxpayers paid a whopping total of $442 million in aid to the Palestinians. That works out to be around $44 million in U.S. taxpayer money being handed over to terrorists and their families.
Yigal Carmon, the president of the Middle East Media Research Institute, gave his testimony in front of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs last summer where he explained this single persistent problem: the support given to the Palestinian Authority is being used to fund terrorist activities.
Daily Caller reports:
Yes, you read that right. Amidst a flurry of semi-treasonous actions, Barrack Obama sent $224 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority just before he left office.
Obama sent this “aid” to the terrorists knowing that the money pays for their terrorist activities or maybe because of it. Even as he was walking out the door, he tried to supply them with another $224 million. However, President Trump put a quick end to that as soon as he took the reins of government from Obama on January 21st.
According to RT, Trump “has reportedly frozen the transfer of the multimillion aid bound for West Bank and Gaza, which Barack Obama is said to have authorized just hours before Donald Trump’s inauguration.”
The United States is no longer under the Obama Rule and it is a glorious time indeed.
