(RoyalPatriot.com )- President Joe Biden is reportedly reversing a decision made by president Donald Trump to discontinue the funding of terrorists in Palestine, by committing to resuming financial assistance to the invented state of “Palestine.”
President Biden will reportedly grant $235 million to the so-called country, despite ongoing aggression against Israel.
“US foreign assistance for the Palestinian people serves important US interests and values,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said this week.
“It provides critical relief to those in great need, fosters economic development, and supports Israeli-Palestinian understanding, security coordination and stability,” he added, without evidence that the money helps improve relations with Israel in any way.
It’s a huge u-turn over the Trump-era policies, which proved extremely successful. In 2018, President Trump discontinued the funding of Palestine, and in the years following, Israel was able to make successful peace deals with various Middle Eastern nations – including the United Arab Emirates – that many believed were not possible.
Out of the cash that President Biden is handing over to Palestine, some $150 million will be given to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The organization was established over 70 years ago to fund charitable efforts in Palestine. A further $75 million is said to be going to the economic development of the West Bank and Gaza, and another $10 million will be given to various “peace-building” programs, according to Blinken.
The cash will be handed over by the US Agency for International Development.
“The United States is committed to advancing prosperity, security, and freedom for both Israelis and Palestinians in tangible ways in the immediate term, which is important in its own right, but also as a means to advance towards a negotiated two-state solution,” Blinken added.
Israeli government officials have slammed the decision, with Gilad Erdan, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and the United States, calling the decision “anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.”
“I have expressed y disappointment and objection to the decision to renew UNRWA’s funding without first ensuring that certain reforms, including stopping the incitement and removing anti-Semitic content from its educational curriculum, are carried out,” he added.
Republican legislators are now reportedly scrutinizing the plan to determine whether it violates American law.
