Protection money

A State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity to describe sensitive international negotiations, said that preliminary reviews show more than $700 million (€537.6 million) in such aid last year. The official estimated Hamas took in only about $110 million (€84.5 million) in legitimate and clandestine revenue.

The Palestinian Authority is effectively broke, with a monthly deficit in the tens of millions of dollars. Palestinians are the biggest per capita recipients of foreign aid in the world, with overseas donors typically contributing about half the annual $1.9 billion (€1.5 billion) budget.

Oof. The same people, whose hands are purple and smoking with the blood of innocent Jews and Americans, have got those same hands this deep into our pockets?

Their lack of humanity is not my emergency. Send their next handout in kind. JDAMs, preferably.

  1. I've often wondered why uneducated American single mothers with no skills are expected to work--and do--when these lazy bums are collecting welfare.
