WHY ARE WE GIVING PALESTINE ANOTHER USD$75MM WHEN OUR COUNTRY IS BORDERING ON BANKRUPTCY AND, ACCORDING TO THE 2012 U.S. CENSUS, 15% OF OUR OWN POPULATION (46.5 MILLION PEOPLE) ARE LIVING IN POVERTY
(AND 11.3 MILLION OF OUR PEOPLE WERE STILL UNEMPLOYED AS OF SEPTEMBER, 2013 ACCORDING TO THE U S DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
Well, According to the Associated Press, Secretary of State, John Kerry announced Wednesday that the United States will provide an additional $75 million in aid to create Palestinian jobs and help them improve roads, schools and other infrastructure. However, U.S. officials say the aid is designed to boost Palestinian public support for faltering peace talks with Israel by showing them tangible benefits from the process
With this additional USD$75MM, OUR government will now be giving a total of $100,000,000.00 to Palestine. WHILE I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THE PALESTINIANS THIS IS SAD NEWS AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED; WE NEED THAT MONEY TO HELP OUR OWN PEOPLE!!!
