DC Think Tank: PA Merger With Hamas Should End US Funding

In addition to supporting terrorism and Palestinian incitement to violence, giving the money now contravenes United States Law, according to EMET, the D.C. think tank.

On Friday, April 25, the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) called on the United States to suspend funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA), following the announcement on Wednesday by PA President Mahmoud Abbas that they will be joining a national unity government with the Gaza-based terrorist organization, Hamas.

The reconciliation agreement between the PA and Hamas exposes the duplicity of the supposedly moderate PA and Mahmoud Abbas, EMET explained. The PA cloaks its true nature from the Western world with Abbas’ words of “peace,” yet both Hamas and the PA advocate for the Palestinian right of return and the destruction of the State of Israel.

Abbas and the PA have been supporting Palestinian terrorism against Israel for the last two decades since its formation, with Palestinian state media regularly applauding suicide bombers, and calling on children to become martyrs, and the PA’s Fatah engaging in acts of terrorism.

“Since September 13, 1993, the Palestinian Authority has been playing a double, duplicitous and highly dangerous game of “Good Cop/Bad Cop,” Sarah Stern, the Founder and President of EMET said. “While the Palestinian Authority ended their diplomatic isolation in the community of nations by signing Oslo, Wye, the Roadmap for Middle East Peace, and all subsequent agreements, they have used their enhanced diplomatic status to wage a nonphysical war against Israel through systematic campaigns of distortion and dehumanization of Israel and the Jew in the international court of public opinion.”

EMET is a DC-based think tank. Its mission is to educate policymakers in Washington and the general public about the importance of Israel to the United States in their common struggle against radical Islam.

According to Emet, it is time to stop giving American’s tax payer dollars, to the tune of $600 million a year, to the PA. In addition to supporting terrorism and Palestinian incitement to violence, giving the money now contravenes United States Law.

Hamas was designated as a U.S. foreign terrorist organization in 1997, making it illegal for any person in the U.S. or under U.S. jurisdiction to provide material support or resources to the entity.

Question: Should we wash our hands in the bathroom with soap and water, or by pouring water from a vessel with handles three times, alternating hands? I have heard it said that a vessel is used only in the morning upon awakening. What are the rules pertaining to young children? What is the protocol if no vessel is available? Additionally, may we dry our hands via an electric dryer?
