Kerry seeks to unblock $700 million for 'Palestinians'

US Secretary of State John FN Kerry is seeking to unblock $700 million in US foreign aid that has been withheld from the 'Palestinian Authority' as a result of their stunt at the United Nations last fall (Hat Tip: Herb G).
"The secretary feels extremely strongly that it is time now to get this support to the Palestinian Authority," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
The department was working with Congress "to get appropriated money released for the Palestinian Authority because we think it's very, very important that they remain effective in supporting the needs of the Palestinian people."
Some $495.7 million was set aside for the Palestinian Authority in the fiscal year 2012 which ended on October 1, while another $200 million for this fiscal year was notified to Congress last week.
The money is earmarked for specific things in the Palestinian budget such as security as well as administrative costs.
However, an additional $100 million has been released, but can only be used on narcotics and law enforcement.
Money is fungible.

The United States is $16 trillion in debt and it's going to free up $700 million for a group of terrorists that defied it in the United Nations? That's really going to teach them a lesson, isn't it?

The Palestinians are controlled by the terrorist organization Hamas. Hamas is the sworn enemy of Israel and the United States. Any money or aid given to the Palestinians will end up in the hands of Hamas who will then use the resources in their fight (jihad) against Israel and the United States.

John Kerry's attempt to give $700,000,000 to the Palestinians will no doubt be money used by terrorists for the destruction of Israel. Any person in his or her right mind should realize that money or aid given to the Palestinians will be diverted to Hamas who will then use it for evil purposes against Israel and the United States.

Any American citizen who willfully aids and abets the enemies of the United States is a traitor to his country and should be stripped of his title and sent to prison. Including Secretary of State John Kerry in my opinion.
