While Obama gives us the song-and-dance about cutting back the huge deficit that he created, he is planning on dropping another billion dollars into a perennial cash sinkhole: the Palestinians:
The United States plans to offer more than $900 million to help rebuild Gaza after Israel's invasion and to strengthen the Western-backed Palestinian Authority, U.S. officials said on Monday.
It makes sense, in a sick Obama kind of way. In the same way that mortgage holders who borrowed more than they could ever afford to pay are now being rescued from there bad decisons by the honest American taxpayer, Palestinians - who elected the 21st century equivalent of Nazis - are being rescued from their horrible lifestyle choice (Jew-killing) by the honest, peaceful American taxpayer.
This will help Hamas, of course. Even if the aid "is not going to go to Hamas", they will claim to the people that their strong political pull got their homes and facilities rebuilt again. Who would dare argue? And what if a mere 10% of that cash - $90 million or so - gets siphoned off into weapon procurement? How many innocent Israelis will be killed due to Obama's divine benevolance?
What a twisted, sick morality the President of the United States possesses.
Character does count...
