Obama to Spend $300 Million on Construction Projects… For Palestinians

Gaza protesters show their gratitude to the United States.

The Obama Administration will spend $300 million on construction projects in Gaza and the West Bank.
Gaza is controlled by Hamas terrorists.
World Net Daily reported:

The Obama administration has released details of a plan to infuse another $300 million into West Bank and Gaza construction projects, spending it deems critical toward attaining the “success of a future Palestinian state.”

Despite combined U.S. and international donor-community efforts, a significant portion of the public infrastructure currently under Palestinian Authority control remains in need of expansion or repair, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the USAID.

Obama, through USAID, is stepping in to meet the need as a successful Palestinian state “depends upon an infrastructure system capable of providing basic services to a growing population,” the agency said in a Statement of Work released Sept. 24.

The Local Construction Project, or LCP, on the other hand, explicitly forbids the transfer of funds to PA-owned or controlled entities – though it likewise mandates that subsequent awards are given to local contractors, thereby excluding the participation of U.S. vendors.

Despite the prohibition against the awarding of contracts to government-affiliated firms, the PA indeed will directly benefit from the LCP.

    Having visited the West Bank I can assure everyone that money “invested” there is money down the drain.

    I always think back to the lush greenhouses that the Israelis left behind when they exited Gaza.

    It took the palis no time at all to destroy them and turn them into a vehicle with which to attack Israel.

    They’ll do the same with obama phones.

    #5, YEP.

    And hey, what’s $300 million of American tax dollars among muslim friends, right? Not like that money could be better spent HERE.

    UGH. This man MUST go.

    “Construction projects” = Kickbacks, cost over runs, and money funneled into pockets of the ruling junta., not to mention money for more weaponry. What happens when the Palestinians who were once hurling rocks at Israeli soldiers are firing missiles instead?

    With Hamas in control of Gaza, and their brothers in arms, the Muslim Brotherhood in control of Egypt (which borders Gaza), all financial aid from the US to Egypt and Gaza can be used in preparation for the upcoming war on Israel and on the West. Always remember that the stated goal of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas is the elimination of the state of Israel and the creation of the Islamic Caliphate to take on the West.

    So is our government in essence arming our own worst enemies in preparation for their war on us? This is indeed a troubling question Here’s another:

    What happened to all the weapons the Obama Administration provided the Libyan rebels in their war to overthrow Khadafi?

    And here’s yet another:

    Were any of those weapons used in the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, especially if some of the very rebels we supplied with advanced weaponry turned around and murdered our people using those very same weapons?

    This is beginning to look like “Fast and Furious” on a global scale.

    Somebody needs to rip the Nation’s checkbook right out of this gutless traitor’s hands.
    The ‘red line’ is here, Republicans.
    Somewhere our Founding Fathers are puking their guts out and what do ya say, Boehner, where the hell are you?
    … crickets

  • chuck in st paul

    He confuses bribing the vote in the ghetto with bribing the towelheads to love us and expects the same outcomes. Lots of luck with that Obysmal. No one has yet succeeded in civilizing those savages.

    Its obvious he has a hidden agenda YEAH turn America into Mudyahadeeny land!

  • Sandy

    Obama’s base is supposed to be satisfied with cell phones instead of jobs while he throws more money down the Middle East rat hole. Doesn’t Congress have to approve this money? Oh yeah that was so pre-supreme leader.

  • kbob in katy

    Kay Granger has stopped some of the transfers of money THAT WE DON’T HAVE TO GIVE AWAY to Egypt; she needs to stop this one too. We help our FRIENDS, not the ones who burn our flags and shout “Death to America.”

    Obama needs to be held accountable for all this and more.

  • Look-Out

    Obama is the enemy of Israel and America. MUST SEE video (especially our Jewish friends):

    RE: Comment 2 – Succotash – While I appreciate the “ABO 2012” sentiment we must remain more focused than that. Votes for Gary Johnson by well meaning Libertarians/Conservatives will hurt Romney, and that will put 0 back in office for 4 more years where he will not be restrained by the vision of the next election.

    You may have to bite your tongue while voting for Romney, but it will be much more painful with 0 in charge. We have 4 years of history to support that contention.

  • thtat is 300 million dollars that american workers could be using to pay their mortgages, food and gas bills.

    As we are currently running a deficit, we actually have to borrow the money in order to pay for these “construction” projects, money which we have to pay back with INTEREST. Since the Saudis have all that oil wealth, maybe we could borrow the money from them. And we could pay the Bin Laden family’s construction company to do the work!

    Its a win – win!

    It wouldn’t be, if the Republican Party actually had some guts to speak of, and enough belief in their own principles to be willing to fight for them.

    Too many John Boehners and not enough Allen Wests.

    I guess this is what the Won meant by ‘shovel ready projects’. Maybe he can go over in January and help ala Jimmuh Carter… 2 peas in a pod.

    Great shot of another ‘flag burning’ – use real bullets on the young rock throwing flag burners – rubber bullets are to kind!
    When Sheiks from places like Dubai can come to the US and spend multimillions on the purchase of a couple of race horses – let them help their fellow Muslims!
