Top PLO official says Trump plans to ‘starve Palestinian children’

A senior Palestinian official on Wednesday said that US President Donald Trump’s threat to slash hundreds of millions of dollars in annual aid would lead to children starving in refugee camps and that the America leader was emboldening Israel to commit crimes against international law.

For years the “Palestinian leadership has engaged in good faith in numerous meetings and encounters with the US administration,” said Saeb Erekat, the longtime senior Palestinian negotiator after a meeting of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s political committee in Ramallah.

Why don’t they buy some food with all the aid money they’ve stolen?

    Hamas made use of the franchise to import ‘needed supplies’ to build tunnels which would allow them to infiltrate Israel and kidnap Jews for ransom and also to restock their supplies of munitions in order to run artillery barrages contra Jewish towns near the border.

    The thing is, Arab states and miscellaneous parties funding UNRWA have for decades given an open ended dole to Arabs living in shanty towns proximate to Israel. In Gaza, as much as 50% of the local income flow consists of UNRWA dole distributions. One thing which inhibits the Arabs from taking stock and developing achievable political goals has been that Daddy Warbucks been cuttin’ dem checks. If, like every other territory in the world, consumption had to more or less equal local production, they might have been more practical all these years.

    This man is shameless. The Oslo process was a 7 year long con game by Yasser Arafat. At the end of the tunnel, Israel was greeted with the 2d Intifada. They were handed Gaza unilaterally. Having acquired it, they used their position their to harass towns on the border.

      Because THAT’S what “starving” looks like!

        Obesity is a common protective mechanism used by muslim women who fear being beaten to death by their husbands or relatives in their periodic frenzies. Convicts in the west sometimes do the same for similar reasons even if they are in safer superior prisons with walls..

    Good plan. Concentrating on locating their next meal will give less time for them to plan jihad attacks.

      Operating in ‘bad faith’ would have to be horrific if they have been operating in ‘good faith’. On second thought I can’t see how what they did could be any more duplicitous than they have been. Maybe their definition of ‘good faith’ is: ‘a faith that only brings good for us, without us having to relinquish anything in return’?

  • The article says: “… slash hundreds of millions of dollars in annual aid would lead to children starving in refugee camps” <<< I'm curious… since America gives 3 billion in aid to the fake Palestinians in Gaza every year… where are these "refugee camps"?

    Folks… let's remember… these fake Palestinians were created out of thin air like fiat money. The word "Palestinian" wasn't even coined until 1967. By the Aids infested, homosexual hypocrite Yasser Arafat…

    So where did these fake Palestinians come from? From the ghettos of Egypt & Jordan… where their muslim brothers (who didn't want anything to do with them).

    See… islam won't take care of their own because they want to spread muslims all over the world to saturate, infiltrate and change governments into Sharia by capitalizing on Democracy.

    I didn’t realize feeding Palestinian kiddies was the responsibility of American taxpayers. True, the list is long, but it’s hard to keep up.

    They are the recipients of more aid per capita than any other ‘group’ in the history of people. On a per head basis, the reconstruction of Japan and Germany after WW2 cost less.

      In the view of these muslims, the money is jizya and as long as it shows up on time there is no need to excessively quibble or care what the spineless infidels call it among themselves.

  • Manual Paleologos

    Sounds like a plan.

    The pals won’t cut down on weapons expenditures to make up the gap.

    I can’t see any down-side here.

  • Oh, yes – the pity game begins anew.

      All dried up. They’re no longer believable. With the internet, their lies are exposed if anyone cares to look.

    Well that’s a good start to 2018.

    Taqiyya / lying in the cause of advancing Islam is allowed under Sharia. The Palestinians follow this under Sharia.
    Using their people, all of their people, by putting them at risk and getting them killed is allowable under Sharia to advance Islam.
    The goal of killing all of the Jews in Israel is even allowed under Sharia (commanded?). It is in various Palestinian constitutions.
    Any treaties a Muslim makes can be broken to extend Islam. The prophet did so. In fact, the first major victory where Islam started in conquering what is now Medina came when Mohamed broke the truce that he had made with the three tribes in power there (Jewish). He slaughter two of the tribes there and murdered many of the third and drove the rest away when he broke the truce two or so years into a ten year truce. It was to the advantage of Islam. So, as Muslims emulate Allah’s greatest man, any Muslim can break a truce if it is to advance Islam. (Lying to any kafir / infidel is also basically allowable under Islam.)
