Palestinian Official Attacks US Ambassador Verbally In UN

Palestinian Official Attacks US Ambassador Verbally In UN

In the diplomatic world, an attack on an ambassador by another is considered an attack on the nation they represent, so the attack by the Palestinian government official against the US’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, telling her to shut up, it sent shock waves through the UN. It turns out when the Palestinians are not getting what they demand, they resort to these type of base attacks. An insult hurled at our ambassador is an insult hurled at the US, we should respond accordingly. 

This all started with the demand by Trump that US funds stop being used by the Palestinian Authority to pay out blood money. This was a practice by the Arabs there in paying money to families of the dead terrorist who had attacked and in many cases killed both Israeli and even American citizens that were visiting the area.

What happens is if an Arab attacks a Jew (does not matter what nationality (they pay this to Arabs that have attacked and killed Jews that were visiting the area from the US, have even attacked and killed none Jews from the US touring the land), and they are a PLO member, they while in prison receives [a special allocation of] $238 per month, plus an extra $71 if they are married, and an additional $12 for each child. The stipend is paid by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) each month.

Under a sliding scale, carefully articulated in the Law of the Prisoner, the more heinous the act of terrorism and the longer the prison sentence, the higher is the salary. Detention for up to three years fetches a salary of almost $400 per month. Prisoners incarcerated between three and five years will be paid about $560 monthly — a compensation level already higher than that for many ordinary West Bank jobs. Sentences of 10 to 15 years fetch salaries of about $1,690 per month. More severe acts of terrorism, those punished with sentences between 15 and 20 years, earn almost $2,000 per month. These are the best salaries in the Palestinian territories. The Arabic word ratib, meaning “salary,” is the official term for this compensation. The law ensures the greatest financial reward for the most egregious acts of terrorism.

Trump upon finding out that the majority of Palestinian funding goes to pay not only these terrorists while in prison, but further pays large lump sums to the families if they are killed, this is why Israel destroys the homes, no one should be able to pay off their mortgage by having one of their family members die.

According to the PA Finance Ministry’s 2017 budget, published on its website earlier in July, salaries to incarcerated and released Palestinian prisoners, many of whom are convicted terrorists, will amount in 2017 to NIS 552 million ($153.4 million). This to the Trump administration was not acceptable, guess the Obama administration had no problem with our tax money being used for such a purpose, but then they did sneak over illegally millions to  Abbas’s son to aid in trying to interfere with Israeli elections to try to unseat their Prime Minister (Isn’t this the same thing the Democrats are screaming that Russia decided to do?).

When Trump told the Palestinian Authority that the US would no longer stand idly by and allow this blood money to be paid out of US funds, they responded by accusing Trump, and the Congress of blackmail said they would never cut off funding, so Trump froze 1/2 of the funding.

This started a cycle of belligerence by the Palestinian Authority, but more, they claim that the US owes them this money. One has to ask; charity is given out of the kindness of your heart, it is not an obligation. So does anyone OWE charity, or is it given due to generosity? If a company is a charitable organization started to attack people for not giving to them, say you are me, then demanded we hand over our money, that we owe it to them, would you give them any money? I sure wouldn’t.

Seems the more we look at this the more into fantasy and refusal to accept any responsibility the Fatah leadership goes. Rather than accept that the Palestinians may carry some fault for the US reaction, they decided to instead accuse the US of trying to bring about a Palestinian Coup

What I see more from the Palestinians is they have been taken care of so long, like many in the US on welfare, after being given free money for so long they think they are owed this money, hate to break it to them, nothing is owed to you other than your life, an event that can be taken as quickly as it was given. 

So what has happened after they saw the US would not budge on this? First, to make matters worse along comes the inept idiot John Kerry, he goes to the Palestinian authority and tells them to hang on, that they are working on getting rid of Trump, but one has to wonder, nothing has been shown to date that he has done anything, with all the eggs in one basket by the left, what are they going to have left to go on if they don’t succeed, they have no message any longer other then oppose Trump and support illegals over our own citizens. 

Naturally, the Palestinians also know there is a good chance nothing will be done with Trump, so they now are saying that the US by withholding aid (the US aid alone funds over 1/2 of all Palestinian funding, they can’t survive for long without this funding. 

The most troubling out of this is rather than reform to make sure they and their people are taken care of, they have instead doubled down; Abbas has told Trump that he will never stop funding terror, if that means cutting off of funds, then so be it. I say it is time to call them on their bluff, I don’t like the idea of paying to fund the killing of any citizens, including the Israeli citizens, but when I find our aid money is going to support terrorist that killed American citizens like Taylor Allen Force, who was stabbed to death on March 8th, 2016, the Palestinian Authority paid his family from the Martyr fund that was funded by US tax dollars. 

And not only this man, but Richard Leikin, 76 years old, was shot in the head and stabbed in the chest in the attack in the neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv by Baha Alyan, his family is now being paid from funds that the US gave, we can thank Obama for the grant block of over 200 million he gave upon leaving office. His accomplice Bilal Abu Ghanem is serving three life sentences, who receives a monthly payment more significant than the average salary of an Arab in the West Bank because he killed more than one Jew and is serving three life sentences. 

And let’s not forget these people, who have passed, all their attackers or their families are still being paid for their murder of American citizens, and yet, the Palestinian Authority thinks we should be happy to pay them money for murdering our citizens, turns out John Kerry agrees with them as well.

And these are just from recent history, to fill up all the Americans would take far to long, yet for years the American government has turned a blind eye to funding terrorist that kill both Israeli citizens and even more important, our own. 

But what is not surprising, when these terrorist trying to dress up in respectfulness, when confronted with rejection towards their ideology they resort back to their base instincts. Telling our ambassador, and hence the whole US to shut up is rude, but to say that they were not going to take any advice from a skirt with heels. I wonder where the feminist group outrage is? No wait, this is a conservative, and a Muslim saying it, they will go out of their way to protect the Muslim male insulting and verbally be assaulting a woman, they don’t care what Muslims do to women.

If there was ever a time to cut off all funding to the Palestinian Authority it is now. We should not only freeze funding but halt payments not only to Fatah but the UN for funding to UNRWA until this is stopped. What I don’t want to see is the UN once more taking our financing and handing it out in a way, not of our choosing, it is our money. 

What is more, the US needs to challenge the appointment of the Palestinian Authority as an observer in the UN, they are not a nation, never have been, it does not matter who is giving them an embassy, they have no country, so why are they in violation of the UN charter having in say in matters there?

Also, as an American I find it outrageous having a member attack our own ambassador, more so disparage her because of her sex, that alone should be reason enough to cut off all aid until an apology is issued. If the Palestinian leadership will not give the respect that our ambassador is due, maybe we should teach them why it is a good idea to show this respect, for there are consequences if you don’t.
