Foreign aid to Palestinian territories closely correlated with number of terror deathsNovember 28, 2011
While the mainstream media attack Republicans in Congress for holding aid money to the Palestinian Authority, and while Republican presidential candidates are lampooned for suggesting scaled back foreign aid, we would do well to remember the startling trend exposed several years ago by the Terror Finance Blog, Daniel Pipes, Jean-Paul Azam, Alexandra Delacroix, and CAMERA, that the number of individual deaths caused by Palestinian Arab terrorism track uncannily with the amount of money that they receive in millions of dollars in international aid:
Aid to the Palestinian territories, although nominally restricted to the Palestinian Authority, is routinely passed through to the Hamas-controlled Gaza government by Mahmoud Abbas (code name: Abu Mazen). The Gaza government employs “security forces” who moonlight as Hamas operatives. Checks are written to the families of “martyrs.” The Palestinian Authority gives stipends to convicted terrorists in Israeli jails and paydays for released terrorists after prisoner swaps.
Is it any wonder then that when the Palestinian Authority is flush with funds, the Holy Land is flush with fatalities?
