Fostering a culture of death has its price: US House of Representatives freezes funds to Palestinian Authority

West Bank to form ‘stabbing squads’
The US House of Representatives has had the integrity to ignore the State Department and freeze funds to the PA.
(INN) Contrary to the wishes of the U.S. State Department, the U.S. House of Representatives has just frozen $370 million in financial aid to the Palestinian Authority in response to mounting criticism concerning Palestinian anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement that has led to the rash of lethal attacks that have left over a dozen Israeli civilians dead over the past several weeks. This money was intended to develop Palestinian infrastructure and foster economic growth, but instead, it is being used by the Palestinian Authority to incite the murder of Jews and to sow destruction within Israel.

Elliott Abrams, a former deputy national security advisor under President George W. Bush who is now with the Council on Foreign Relations, went further and has suggested that additional penalties should be imposed including the closing of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) office in Washington, sanctioning PA officials and others with visa bans, and earmarking U.S. aid for specific programs untainted by corruption so long as Palestinian leaders continue to incite their people to murder Israelis.

Hopefully, the U.S. government will no longer be swayed by the fallacious arguments that Palestinian terrorism is motivated by “political and social desperation”, “frustration and alienation”, “Israeli settlement activity”, “failure to agree on borders”, and “the inevitable consequence of neglect” – phrases that are often used by administration officials and members of the mainstream media to excuse and/or justify Palestinian terrorist actions.

Truth is, Palestinian violence is not induced by any of the above, but it is in fact driven by hope - the hope of annulling Jewish national sovereignty and dismantling the Jewish nation-state.

The U.S. action is therefore long overdue. The large number of stabbings, vehicular murders, shootings, fire-bombings, and other deadly attacks throughout Israel are a product of the war being waged by Palestinian leadership - a war designed to inculcate in the minds of its younger generation that Judaism is only a religion; that the Jews are not entitled to a nation state of their own; that Israel is “occupying” sacred Islamic land in violation of Islamic law, that it intends to undermine the status of the al-Aqsa Mosque/Temple Mount, and that Jews have no history of having ever ruled the Land which (they falsely proclaim) is, was and always will be part of the Muslim umma.

As such, the mission of the Palestinians - despite all the rhetoric to the contrary - is to bring about Israel’s destruction.
