$700 million. Outrageous! (CIDI)

From the desk of Mat Staver,

$700 million. That is the estimated amount of taxpayer dollars the United States government sends to the Palestinians each year through the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, and in so-called “aid” money to the Palestinian Authority.

Outrageously, the U.S. Government has reportedly donated nearly $6 billion over several decades to UNRWA with NO accountability on how those funds are disbursed.

It’s like pouring water into the sand. And that’s not all.

In 2017, the Palestinian Authority paid a reported $347 million to terrorists and their families.

President Trump is now questioning why the United States is held hostage to these misguided payments: “We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect…with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”

It is outrageous that our taxpayer money continues to flow to the Palestinians with no accountability, while their leaders make payments to terrorists and teach their children to hate Jews!

That is why I am asking you to join me and thousands of others in calling for the United States Government to DEFUND the Palestinians until there is accountability, a verifiable cessation of payments to terrorists, and the Palestinian Authority agrees to talk peace in the Middle East!

+ + It’s time for the United States Government to wise up!

Right now, $125 million in aid money to the Palestinians is being held pending further review. President Trump and Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. are facing opposition from U.S. State Department officials who want to release the funds because of the impact of removing aid from Palestinian welfare recipients.

Yet, the Palestinian Authority’s payments to terrorists dwarf their payments to welfare recipients as reported by The Algemeiner.

“Palestinian terrorists and their families are receiving far higher payments than Palestinian welfare recipients, according to an analysis of the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) budget that was conducted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).A Palestinian family on welfare receives less than $170 per month, while the PA pays Palestinian prisoners a maximum monthly payment of roughly $3,340 — over 20 times more than a needy Palestinian family.”


A majority of our “aid” money is verifiably funding terror. It is shameful that our government would, for so long, turn a blind eye to actions that violate international law and fan the flames of hatred, terrorism, and murder.

This is a red-alert call to action for pro-Israel Americans who want to prevent taxpayer dollars from going to the Palestinian Authority’s terror activities. Click here now to tell Congress to stop funding terror!

P.S. Our Defund the Palestinian Authority petition states:

I join with many other pro-Israel Americans in calling for the United States Government to DEFUND the Palestinians until there is actual accountability, a verifiable cessation of payments to terrorists, and the Palestinian Authority agrees to talk peace in the Middle East! No more “Pay to Slay!”

The greatest threat to “peace” in Israel is the all-consuming goal of these radical Islamists to eliminate the one Jewish nation in the world—the tiny land of Israel. Palestinian acts of aggression must be stopped!
