Palestinians Cry Poverty As They Buy 50 Million Dollar Private Jet.
There is nothing like being proven right. Trump was sick of all the hassle he was getting from countries that the US aids and then, in turn, those funded countries doing their best to work against us. Palestine was always unwilling to talk peace with Israel and spoke out against Jerusalem being recognized as the capital. They seem to view the US as a friend of the enemy as opposed to the country that sends them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid.
Trump put a stop to all of this when he cut financial aid being sent to the Palestinians. He has cut the normal installment of $125 million down to $60 million saving millions while making his point that the US will get respect. Especially from countries, it is funding or the financial aid will stop.
The Palestinian were of course up in arms and angry that they were no longer getting all the free money. PLO Official Saeb Erekat commented on the cut.
“Now, he is threatening to starve Palestinian children in refugee camps and deny their natural rights to health and education, if we don’t endorse his terms and dictations,” Erekat said, referring to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
They claimed that the children of Palestine will be starving due to the cut in funding. So the most logical thing to do when your people are starving is to go all out and buy the Palestinian Authority, President Mahmoud Abba, a 50 Million Dollar luxury private jet.
“Even as the Palestinian Authority faces major funding cuts from the US, it has purchased a new luxurious $50 million private jet to be used by President Mahmoud Abbas, Hadashot news reported Wednesday….” The report continued, “Funding for the plane was said to have been provided both from the PA budget ($20 million) and from the Palestinian National Fund ($30 million)”
Whereas Israel’s Prime Minister doesn’t have a private Jet.
But it’s not like it’s for his personal use right?
“the aircraft — set to be delivered ‘within weeks’ — will be stationed in the Jordanian capital, Amman, for the Palestinian president’s personal use.”
If they can afford a 50 Million dollar luxury jet for the sole use of their leader Abba then maybe we should have cut funding much sooner.
