WASHINGTON – The U.S. State Department says funding for the Palestinian Authority could be about $500 million dollars this year.

“We are working with Congress to ensure U.S. support for the Palestinians, including $495.7 million in FY 2012 assistance that was notified in April 2012 and $200 million in FY 2013 direct budget support that was notified last week,” a State Departmen spokesman said today.

“Our view remains that our assistance to the Palestinian people is an essential part of the U.S. commitment to a negotiated two-state solution for Palestinians and Israelis, promoting a comprehensive peace in the Middle East. It is in the interest not only of the Palestinians, but of Israel and the United States as well, to ensure these efforts continue as they help to build a more democratic, stable and secure region.”

    I really hate to say this, but, where is the US going to get that kind of money to give to another country. 16 trillion and counting. What is the return going to be on that money. With all the money that we have given to other countries, and for what, we could have put into our economy and helped our own people. We are a long way down the path of no return. We need to stay out of other peoples business and take care of our own.
