PA Aid

Perhaps if the jizya handed out to the PA were halted the destruction of Israel would take a back seat to more urgent priorities- like learning to become more self-sufficient. Instead the handouts continue to bail them out of trouble-

The European Union said Monday that it will give the Palestinian Authority $143 million in emergency aid before the newly elected Hamas leadership forms a Palestinian government.

Since 1993, the United States has given more than $1.5 billion to Palestinians -- some directly to the Palestinian Authority and some through the United Nations and private aid groups.

For 2006, the United States budgeted $234 million for Palestinian aid. Last year, the European Union gave the Palestinian Authority more than $600 million.
