How Obama Got Around Congress Withholding $200 M In Aid To The
A story in the UK
Independent says that the US Congress showed its displeasure with the
‘Palestinians’ going unilaterally to the UN by
withholding $200 million in aid that was supposed to be disbursed to Mahmoud
Abbas’ little fiefdom by the end of this fiscal year, which ended October
Being part of the British press and sharing their well known
attitude towards Israel, the article is sympathetic to Abbas, referring to him
as being ‘punished’ and inferring that the US Congress is under the thumb of
those Evil Zionists, rather than being upset with the ‘Palestinians’ for allying
with Hamas or for abrogating their agreements under two treaties the US is
signatory to, the Road Map and The Oslo Accords.
However, there are
indications that this was a set up and if my source is correct, both the Obama
Administration and the ‘Palestinians’ were privy to it.
One of my notorious Little
Birdies works directly in the ‘Palestinian Authority’ and we’ve been
correspondents for some time, sort of frenemies, if you get my
source had a good laugh at Congresses’ action. According to this person, the
Obama Administration was aware for some time that the final $200 million might
be withheld by Congress and informed the ‘Palestinians’ in advance. The Obama
Administration promised the ‘Palestinians’ that they would do their best to head
this off, but when they couldn’t, an arrangement was made with the Saudis to
make up the missing $200 million in advance.
That rang a bell…and showed
me that as usual, my source was almost certainly correct.
A scant ten days
Saudis gifted Mahmoud Abbas and the ‘Palestinians’ with the exact sum the US
Congress was withholding from them…$200
My source didn’t speculate, but knowing how these
things work it’s almost guaranteed that the Saudis either received the money
from the Obama Administration directly to give to the ‘Palestinians’ or more
likely, that the Saudis supplied the cash in exchange for an American quid pro
quo somewhere else down the line.
President Obama is going to
see to it that the ‘Palestinians’ receive their jizya no matter
what..and a little thing like Congress certainly isn’t going to stop him if he
can help it.
