In November, we wrote about your tax dollars funding a Palestinian Authority soap opera during Ramadan (“Desperate Hijab-encrusted Housewives”?).
Now, your tax dollars are going for an even “more noble” effort in the Palestinian Authority. You are funding MILLIONS ($2 MILLION to be exact) in campaign funds for terrorist group Fatah’s campaign in the Palestinian elections.
This is an outrage. Fatah was Yasser Arafat’s group. It has lots of blood on its hands, including the blood of two U.S. diplomats to Sudan–Cleo Noel and George Curtis Moore, tortured and beaten so badly to death that authorities could not tell which was the White man and which was Black. (Moore was the highest ranking Black U.S. foreign service officer at the time, serving as our Charge D’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Sudan.)
Fatah won’t denounce terror. Its Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade is responsible for a plethora of homicide bombings. So WHY are we funding their election campaign?
The absurd State Department, which runs the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID–which pays for the campaign and also paid for the soap opera), believes that HAMAS is a “more extreme” terrorist group. And since Fatah is Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas is part of terrorist group Fatah, well, then, we must support that terrorist group.
Sound logical to you? Me neither. Look at the pictures above. Do you see anything other than clothing color that makes one terrorist look like a more worthy guy? What ever happened to President Bush’s utterance of “Your either on our side or the terrorists’ side.” Now, he, his State Department, and–by force of taxes–we are all on the terrorists’ side. How nice.
And some people want Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice for President?
***UPDATE: One of these Fatah candidates, whose campaign WE ARE FUNDING, is named “Hitler” and is a member of Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. How cute: We are funding Hitler’s campaign for office. Your tax dollars at work.
