Showdown in DC on Hamas
By Micah Halpern

Friday March 3, 2006

I'm Predicting:

There is going to be a showdown in Washington.
The subject: Hamas.

The United States has already declared that it will be "NO DEAL" with Hamas. They have demanded the return of $50 million that was improperly allocated. $30 million has already been returned. $20 million more is on the way.

And yet, official US spokespeople and political appointees are talking about granting aid to the Hamas-led PA in the form of humanitarian gifts.
And the US has so far pledged $150 million in development aid plus $84 million in aid projects through the United Nations to the Palestinians for this year alone.

Secretary of State Condi Rice proclaims that US money cannot go to the Hamas-led PA and then slides right into a statement about a Palestinian aid project that must be supported - like immunizations.

Members of The International Relations Committee of the House were livid at the responses they got when they heard State Department testimony describing the status of funding for Hamas.

The US cannot have it both ways.
Get ready for serious fireworks.
