Israeli-Americans sue Clinton over PA aid money

Dual US-Israeli citizens filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and the State Department claiming that the US administration provided the Palestinian Authority with billions of dollars in aid money which were used to fund terrorist groups such as Hamas instead of supporting humanitarian causes, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

2. Hmmm, How Ironic

 

under the bush administration, congress passed (with little to no debate) the largest ten year financial aid package in history for Israel. safe to assume some of this money is used to buy weapons, some of which are used against extremists.

I seriously doubt the amount of money we are giving to the Palestinians comes close to the amount given Israel-- a wealthy nation which hardly needs "financial aid".

4. No clue at all, eh?

Might I suggest that further annoying the current US administration is bad strategy?

I mean aside from the fact that the PA and Hamas are enemies.

5. Dual citizenship should be abolished, period.

And I say this as someone who could claim dual citizenship in the US and Estonia.

People should decide which nation they are loyal to. I chose to be an American.
