fact that the Palestinian Authority that Mahmoud Abbas controls is still
teaching that the "Palestine" will be instead of Israel, not Israel's
peaceful neighbor, is really not news. It's an old story. Yes, even on
November 28, the day after the Annapolis conference, official PA television
broadcast a map of all of Israel, including the West Bank and Gaza, covered
with a Palestinian flag.
may not control Gaza, or even much of Fatah, but he does control his own
official media. It's absurd to throw more money at him if he does not take
minimal steps to show that these funds will not be put toward a state
dedicated to Israel's destruction. And if he doesn't take those minimal
steps why are the US and the
nations of the world still sending him aid?
Nonetheless, world donors pledged $7.4 billion for the Palestinian Authority
at a recent conference, a massive sum that
surpassed even the
Palestinian Authority own expectations. This is not really shocking
But the most disturbing news is how the PA abuses the world's
kindness by using it to further their murderous aims. In a recent article
not covered by the mainstream media titled, "Israel Discovers Explosives in
Aid Truck" I read all I have to know about the futile effort the world is
making by trying to provide humanitarian aid and money to the PA.
It seems that the IDF intercepted 6.5 tons of
Potassium Nitrate, a main ingredient in explosives manufacturing, that was
stored in sugar bags marked as humanitarian aid from the European Union.
Potassium Nitrate is a banned substance in Gaza, Judea and Samaria region
due to its use by terrorists for the manufacturing of explosives and Kassam

The bags were labeled as aid by terrorist groups in order to take advantage
of Israel's efforts to limit scrutiny of foreign aid shipments to Gaza.
Israel was pressured to limit the inspections by humanitarians who are
worried about the people in Gaza. Obviously, Israel cares more about those
residents than the Palestinian leadership does.
terror organizations disguised the Potassium Nitrate in sugar bags that were
marked as being part of the humanitarian aid provided by the European
Union," an IDF source said. "This is another example of how the terror
organizations exploit the humanitarian aid that is delivered to the
Palestinian population in Gaza with Israel's approval."
To preach the violence of destroying a country is
one thing, to raise money to fund that violence is another - neither of
which is acceptable - but to abuse and exploit the goodness and kindness of
the countries that are trying to help you in whatever small way possible is
If it were up to me, I would ban all foreign
assistance to the Palestinian Authority - even humanitarian aid - because
their violent, aggressive and deceptive actions tell us they are the not a
partner in peace. In fact, they can be considered nothing less than enemy
