WOLFOWITZ HAS GONE STARK RAVING MAD: SAYS WE SHOULD KEEP FUNDING THE PALESTINIAN GOVERNMENT EVEN WITH HAMAS

The Palestinian Government should continue to receive international aid despite concerns over last week's election victory by Islamic militant group Hamas, World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz said in an interview today.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Mr Wolfowitz urged Russia, the European Union, the US and the United Nations to allow the bank to continue working in the region. The so-called Quartet of world powers has said Hamas must reject violence and recognise the right of Israel to exist or risk losing the aid.


"What we do now depends on what the Quartet asks us to do," Mr Wolfowitz told the British newspaper. "I hope they will ask us to stay." ... It will help the whole process if the life of the average Palestinian improves. We ought to be the last people to disengage."

The bank chairs the committee of donors for the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Authority is the biggest single employer in the those areas and relies on foreign aid to stay afloat. Last year, $802.4 million from the European Union and more than $264 million from the US.
HAMAS is a racist, misogynist, genocidal, theocratic terrorist organization which wants to erase Israel from the map - just like Ahmadinejad and Iran. We should no more send the Palestanis aid them give Iran some nukes! WHAT MAKES IT WORSE: on top of all that, these Palestanis run a socialist state, and we should not send money to prop up socialism ANYHWHERE! If the Palestanis want our aid, let them get it CONDITIONALLY from us - or get it elsewhere.

I am so incredibly upset at Wolfowitz; this is unpardonable. We must present a united front to the enemy. I'd expect this kind of appeasement from Kofi or Chiraq or the Spainiards, but not Wolfie. Shame on him. Condi and Rummy and "W" should read him the RIOT ACT.

WHY.... IF WE GIVE HAMAS MONEY, THEN WE'D HAVE TO PUT OURSELVES ON OUR OWN TERRORIST LIST AS A STATE WHICH SUPPORTRS TERRORISM!

That's why Wolfie's suggestion is absolutely INSANE! A SANE nation doesn't send aid to it's sworn enemies. I really don't care one whit if the Palestanis suffer as a result. ELECTIONS COUNT! ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES! They've made their beds; now let them sleep in them.

Just because THEY'VE "elected" a bunch of out-and-out terrorists doesn't mean we have to change our policies regarding terrorists. NO! Now THEY have to accept the consequences of their choice!

Sheesh. (Full FT article HERE.)

UPDATE: ISRAEL GETS IT RIGHT:
In a potential blow to the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority, Israel said on Tuesday it might suspend monthly tax payments during a policy review after the victory of Hamas. This follows the call by four countries on Monday for Hamas to renounce violence against Israel to continue getting funding from them.
We should put the same sanctions on HAMAS as we would on any genocidal regime - LIKE IRAN AND SYRIA AND NORTH KOREA AND ZIMBABWE. NO AID FOR TERRORISTS. PERIOD.

Reliapundit,

I think we need to allow the money to flow in the interim until Hamas has set up their government.

We must wait for Hamas to declare their true intentions without duress...otherwise they will have no choice but to assume a hostile posture because the arabs have no value for anything but their own pride- they even murder their own daughters to avoid shame.

After Hamas reveals their true intent and total inability to live in peace with Israel it will be ok to annihilate them...

anon 355am:

you wrote some silly stuff!:

1 - "After Hamas reveals their true intent and total inability to live in peace with Israel ..."

2 - "... wait for Hamas to declare their true intentions ..."

YOU WRITE TISD AS IF THEY HAVEN'T!? WHICH IS NUTTY.

They have a charter; they have a platform they ran on; their leadrers have records - of supporting genocidal terror; they have website; books; textbooks, AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON.

Your words are like neville chamberlian's in 1939! (as if hitler was an unknown quantity!)

what you recommend is giving a group dedicvated to genocide committed with terror MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

that's only gonna buy more attacks. attacks against the WEST - NOT just Israel.

wake up and smell the reality.

thanks for reading and commenting!
