Your tax dollars at work

The United States is spending $175,000 in US tax money to finance new road signs for Judea and Samaria that will be in Arabic and English only, without Hebrew. The road signs are part of a plan to 'lay the groundwork' for a judenrein (Jew-free) 'Palestinian state' in Judea and Samaria.
Mindy Masonis, spokeswoman for the US Consulate in Jerusalem, said the new signs will be part of a larger program aimed at improving conditions in the West Bank. The development is seen as part of the preparation for a future Palestinian state.

Masonis said no signs are being taken down, but the new ones in the Palestinian areas will be in Arabic and English. The sign project accounts for about $175,000 of a three-year, $20 million U.S. aid project to improve services in the West Bank.
When you're running a nearly $2 trillion deficit, I guess $175,000 is a drop in the bucket. Kind of like adding a magazine subscription when you're $200,000 in debt, right? Or like cutting $1 billion from the 2010 US budget. It's all chump change.

Yisrael Medad has a lot more to say about this story here.

The good thing is that the Paleoswinians ought to put up maybe 6 signs with the money left over after 16 levels of graft.

However, I do resent my money being used for this. I promise that I could do something a lot more worthwhile with that kind of money.

Apparently Obama does not like Hebrew. Is it any wonder just 4% of Israeli Jews support him?
