    Citing “national security interests,” President Obama effectively sidestepped Congress by signing an executive order which enables him to send $500 million to fund Muslim terrorists in the West Bank.
    The executive order, addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry, was quietly signed Friday afternoon, as the media’s full attention was focused upon a royal birth.

    In the order, President Obama writes, “I hereby certify that it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of section 7040(a) of the Act as carried forward by the CR, in order to provide funds appropriated to carry out chapter 4 of part II of the Foreign Assistance Act, as amended, to the Palestinian Authority.”

    What, is pres. obama trying to set up palestinians? Anticipating that some of that money will go to weaponry to be used, only to give justification for israel to further
    decimate those people?

    If I recall, obama said it 'america will stand with israel'. Why then would he fund palestine $500 mill?

    Seems to me like he's fattening up the pigs for the slaughter.

    Checked around. There seems to be more to this than it first appears. The money was authorized over a year ago, and Israel is seemingly trying to "starve" the Palestinians out for taking them to international court: :10500:

    Obama-Abbas press conference in Ramallah


    The first sum comprises some $195.7 million, allocated under the 2012 fiscal year budget for USAID economic, development and humanitarian assistance, as well as a further $100 million earmarked specifically for narcotics control.


    The second sum of $200 million unblocked and available to the Palestinian Authority will come under the 2013 budget and be spent for direct budget support.


    The Palestinian Authority is facing its worst economic crisis in years, in part because of a failure by donors to deliver pledged funds. But its finances were plunged further into chaos after president Mahmud Abbas won upgraded UN observer status at the UN General Assembly in late November.


    Congress froze the US administration's requests for funds.


    And Israel, which also strongly opposed the move, said it was suspending monthly transfers of the tax and tariff revenue it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the wake of the decision.


    It did, however, transfer $100 million in a one-off payment in late January.


    Earlier this month a report by the Palestinian Authority urged the world to step up financial aid and press Israel to allow economic development, warning of a "political collapse" due to Israeli fiscal strangulation.


    Obama met Abbas in Ramallah in the West Bank on Thursday as part of his visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories, accompanied by US Secretary of State John Kerry.


    Kerry has pushed for the funds to be released since taking up his post on February 1.
