$900 Million for Gaza?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to ask for $900 Million to give to Gaza to help them "rebuild". Why the quotes? Clinton may honestly believe the money will be put toward the estimated $2 Billion it will cost to rebuild Gaza in the wake of the most recent Israel-Hamas conflict. If history is anything to go by, it seems safe to say that a nice size junk of that money will end up going to rearm Hamas.

Of course, even if the money all magically goes toward rebuilding, that would free up Hamas money that may otherwise go to rebuild to be used for rearming purposes. Not even considering our own economic woes which should hinder us regardless, do we really want to throw a billion dollars to terrorists who's charter reflects their desire to "push the Jews into the sea"? Israel is still our ally, right? Hamas is not interested in making sure the Jews go for a swim so they do not over hear, they would like to commit a genocide. Would like is not totally accurate. Are trying to commit a genocide is more in line. Hopefully, Congress will block this.

For more "throwing Israel under the bus" news, read It talks about the US's involvement in the UN's Durban II "anti-racism" conference. This sounds all well and good, but that could not be further from the truth. It is a long article, but worth the read through.

To keep consistent with my analogies; the US has thrown Israel in front of the bus but has an opportunity to swerve until April 20. The longer we wait, the more other people we would have to "run over" to avoid Israel. Given the type of people we are dealing with here, getting involved in the first place was a mistake, not objecting at key moments was an even bigger mistake, and the failure to swerve and siding with these people would be a yet bigger mistake.
