On Friday morning just before turning over the reins of power to incoming President Donald Trump, outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama quietly transferred $221 million to the Palestinian Authority, $1.25 million to United Nations organizations, and $4 million for climate change programs, according to a report published Monday by the Associated Press.

The allocation had been approved by Congress for fiscal years 2015 and 2016 but was being held up by Republican lawmakers at the time over the PA moves to gain membership in international treaties and various other organizations. The executive branch usually respects the holds placed on funds by Congress, but such a hold is not legally binding.

The funds were funneled through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Palestinian Authority allocates millions of dollars each year via the Palestine Liberation Organization for generous stipends to be paid to terrorist prisoners who successfully attack Israeli targets, and their families; those who don’t survive the attempt are guaranteed before setting out that their families will be set for life with a permanent monthly stipend as well.

The Palestinian Authority pays out an estimated $140 million a year to the families of suicide bombers and salaries to imprisoned terrorists, which is around 10% of their annual budget.

The wife of the Armon HaNatziv truck terrorist who killed 4 IDF soldiers will begin receiving a lifetime monthly pension of NIS 2800, and one-time bonus of NIS 6000 from the Palestinian Authority.

  1. And lets not forget the $500 million that went to the UN’s Green Climate Fund organization that supports the Palestinian Authority so i bet half of that money will be going there so that will be just over $500 million that will go to TERRORISTS that was transferred January 18, 2017

  2. He went against the will of the Congress, read the article. “The allocation had been approved by Congress for fiscal years 2015 and 2016 but was being held up by Republican lawmakers at the time over the PA moves to gain membership in international treaties and various other organizations. The executive branch usually respects the holds placed on funds by Congress, but such a hold is not legally binding.”

  4. What a wonderful parting gift….. to supply Israel’s enemy, who is sworn to destroy the Jewish State with enough money to achieve their goal of wiping Israel from the map. There is one Person B.O. will answer to, and I wouldn’t like to be in his shoes when when the G-D of Israel has the final say.

  5. The hate ridden Obama has finally exposed his hatred of the Jews of Israel. He gave the PLO money he was honour bound not to and spent much energy to bring about his UN attack on Israel. Vindictive vile Shiite who hid his true origins from the American people
