Occupied Jerusalem - The American newspaper, the Washington Post, on Sunday reported that the American government was assisting Fatah, the de facto governing party of the Palestinian Authority, with millions of dollars to cover its elections campaign.
The paper spoke of “discrete financial support to the Palestinian Authority to strengthen it against the Islamic Resistance group, Hamas.
According to the Washington Post, the money, a sum of million, has been channeled through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The paper said the money was to be used to bolster the image of the PA by indirectly supporting the Fatah movement.
The paper added that the some of the money went to newspaper advertisements promoting Fatah.
The usually well-informed newspaper quoted a USAID official, James Bever, who is also mission director in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as saying that “we are not favoring any particular party, but we don’t support parties that are on the ‘terrorism list.’ We are here to support the democratic process.”
Question: Why isn't the Aparthied terror regime of Israel on our State Dept. terror list? Why do we continue to back Israel which is in violation of international law, numerous UN resoluions and continues to bar the IAEA from inspecting it's nuclear weapons facility? Israel continues to endanger the safety of the Middle East.
Just one of countless crimes of Israeli terrorism.
