U.S. Is Right To Cut Aid To Palestinian Government
By David Holcberg (U.K. Daily Express, April 19, 2006; Washington Times, May 12, 2006)
After years of propping up the Palestinian Authority, the U.S. government has finally suspended all financial aid to this terrorist regime.
Through the years, the United States has given billions of dollars to the Palestinians and their leaders. This drain on the wealth of Americans has been used to promote anti-Americanism in Palestinian schools, mosques and media--and to finance suicide bombings in Israeli streets, restaurants and malls. It is disgraceful that American aid has helped create a terrorist culture and maintain a terrorist regime.
The election victory of Hamas--an Islamic terrorist group committed to the destruction of Israel--further demonstrates that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians deserve no aid or sympathy. What they deserve is to suffer the consequences of electing terrorists to rule them.
