While Egypt and Hamas Starve the Gaza Strip, President Obama Finally Found an Ass to Kick: Israel's

Three data points for your consideration:

Cairo refuses to allow aid into Gaza
Egypt has refused a request by Arab doctors to bring food and supplies into the Gaza strip. Last weekend, the Arab Physicians Union submitted a request to Cairo to allow 400 tons of food and construction material into Gaza; the request was refused by the government.

Hamas refuses to allow food from Israel into Gaza
Hamas terrorists have decided to block Israel-approved food supplies from arriving in Gaza. Hamas "Economy Minister" Ziad al-Zaza (Yabba Dabba Doo for short) said it needs factory supplies, not "soda and soft drinks."

Obama announces Terrorist Stimulus Plan
The United States will pay Hamas and Fatah nearly half a billion dollars, according to CNN. Barack Obama announced that the U.S. will send $400 million in development aid to the Palestinian territories and called the current situation "unsustainable".

Let me get this straight. Our economy has cratered. Unemployment is nearly 10 percent. The national debt is expected to exceed our gross national product by next year. And we're giving $400,000,000 to our mortal enemies in Gaza?

$400,000,000 to the Hamas-led death cult allied with Iran and Syria? $400,000,000 to the people who celebrated the destruction of the twin towers? $400,000,000 to rain thousands more rockets upon Israeli women and children?

Yep. That's pretty much it.

Obama finally found an ass to kick: Israel's.

Our Community Organizer in Chief is doing what he does best - giving away other peoples money. And where is the accountability?

I see your anger, but try to be balanced - the US gave $2.423 BILLION in aid to Israel in 2008 (the last year I could find) and has given over $100 billion since 1947. (source -

You could also use your same words from the Palestinian perspective:

$2,420,000,000 to the Israel-led death cult allied with the USA? $2,420,000,000 to the people who celebrated the destruction of Gaza? $2,400,000,000 to rain thousands more artillery shells into a populated urban landscape upon Palestinian women and children?

I agree Israel wants and should prevent rocket attacks, but try punishing those perpetrating the rocket attacks rather than the entire population and I think Israel might get to see why the majority of the world is becoming increasingly angry. Hamas was, surprisingly, democratically elected. I can only see the population getting more and more radicalized unless Israel works hard to support more centerist candidates.

So was Hitler. Same result - if Hamas gets their way - 6 million Jews slaughtered.

Well, maybe its time someone kicked Isreal's ass. But, I just don't approve giving away anymore of our money, until we can stand on our own feet again financially. I'd like to see our budget like it was when Clinton handed it over to Bush. For the first time in many administrations, Clinton balanced the budget and there was actually a surplus, until Bush got his hands on it. Bush handed it over to Obama with the largest deficit in history!
