DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 P.M)- USAID to the West Bank and Gaza Strip has been completely cut.

According to Reuters, a US official has confirmed the ending of all USAID to the Palestinian Territories. The cut also includes stopping 60million dollars of funds, meant to feed Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces.

Both the PA and Hamas have condemned the move, stating that it will hurt their civilian populations.

Back in August, 2018, Washington cut all finances to UNRWA, the UN refugee agency dedicated to providing aid to Palestinian refugees.

In January, the World Food Program also cut aid to tens of thousands of Palestinians, due to lack of funding.

Since February, last year, the Gaza Strip has been in a declared state of emergency.

Arafat’s real family name was al-Husseini (typical Egyptian name), just like his uncle Amin who actually was general in the Waffen-SS and the Arab speaker on the Nazi radio for the Mid-East. Amin was also the head of the infamous Muslim-Brotherhood for Palestine (this includes kingdom of Jordan, remember!) and actually ordered the murder of king Abdullah-I since he wanted peace. Amin actually settled in Gaza for long until he ‘retired’ in 1964, his private army then was transferred to his nephew and became PLO… Hamas is fully part of the Muslim Brotherhood and Arafat fought the 1948 war with… Read more »

Muhaha! Abbas’ personal wealth : $1.5bln. Haniyyeh : $3.6bln Mashal : $2.6bln Abu-Zarmook 😕 $2.5bln. Not speaking about Arafat’s Swiss bank accounts : despite their jet-setting lavish lives, Arafat’s widow+daughter are far from having dilapidated the estimated $9.6-11bln Yasser managed to steal… Would Abbas, Haniyyeh, Mashal, Abu-Zarmook or Mrs.Arafat sign a $60M “only” check for civilian populations’ relief? No, hëll, no! Hamas or PLO/PA don’t give a fück! They are kleptocracies and BTW, there will neither be a real Fakestinian state nor they will be peace as long these creeps aren’t finished off! Why? Only the status quo allows’ em… Read more »
