49. Congress with held Palestinian aid last year as punishment for the UN bid then at least until Israel

requested that Congress restore at least the security portion of that aid, because Israel is a bit dependent on PA security in the Area A of the West Bank?

and more from your PDF

Because of congressional concerns that, among other things, funds might be diverted to
Palestinian terrorist groups, U.S. aid is subject to a host of vetting and oversight requirements and
legislative restrictions. U.S. assistance to the Palestinians is given alongside assistance from other
international donors, and U.S. policymakers routinely call for greater or more timely assistance
from Arab governments in line with pledges those governments make. Even if the immediate
objectives of U.S. assistance programs for the Palestinians are met, lack of progress toward a
politically legitimate and peaceful two-state solution could undermine the utility of U.S. aid in
helping the Palestinians become more cohesive, stable, and self-reliant over the long term.

tell us how much vetting and oversight does Israel get for the 3-4 billion it receives from us annually?
