Washington Funds Palestinian Campaign
My tax dollars pay for a lot of worthless things, but Washington has hit a new low. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Obama Administration has invested nearly $250,000 (paid for with United States taxes...of course) for the creation of billboards featuring Palestinian officials (including the faces of senior Palestinian Authority officials Saeb Erekat, Jibril Rajoub, Yasser Abed Rabo, and Riad Malki) that read, "We are partners...what about you?"
The American government is funding a Palestinian Authority campaign movement IN Israel?
Is this how you win a Nobel Peace Prize? Crap...I was waaay off.
"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs." - Theodore Roosevelt
