US Congress To Mahmoud Abbas. Stick It
Well, I hope you really enjoyed your little "Palestine vote" stunt this week, Mr. Abbas. You won a couple of days worth of great publicity and a temporary reprieve from your own people.
For that, you just lost $200 million.
United States Congress has blocked nearly $200 million in aid for the Palestinian Authority, threatening projects such as food aid, health care, and support for efforts to build a state, The Independent reported Saturday.
Still think the USA isn't going to hit back for your little foreign policy adventure? Stilll think it's a wise idea to bite the hand that feeds?
Tell you what, Abbas: Double down. Even better, let's triple this bet. You want to mess with the USA. Well, first you're going to lose $600 million this year alone.
And then they're really going to get creative. The US government's books are in the toilet. And they've got far better things to spend money on than salaries for convicted jihadist terrorists... like buying drones armed with Hellfire missiles, which are great at killing jihadist terrorists.
