Remember when the Trump White House announced that they would be cutting aid to the Palestinian’s?
The US was getting tough against the Plaestaians….
Wouldn’t the Israeli’s like THAT?
They money going to them helps Israel and the US by stabilizing the situation on the ground ….
US money helps Israel work WITH the Plaestians ….
The Israeli’s want the US to continue providing security funding to the Arabs….
Actions, or inActions have consequences the Israeli’s well know….
This is ANOTHER example of Donald Trump’s foreign policy abandonment …..
Israeli officials tell me [ Barak Ravid of Israel’s Channel 13 news] they have asked the Trump administration to amend a law that would essentially end aid for the Palestinian Authority’s security forces, who have a cooperation program with Israel that many believe has provided stability to the West Bank.
Why it matters: The law is slated to go into effect Feb. 1, and with the government shutdown continuing with no immediate end in sight, a legislative fix is not expected to be enacted in time.
