The Independent reports that US Congress blocked $200 million in aid to Palestinian Authority following Mahmoud Abbas' bid for UN membership and is threatening wider sanctions
The decision to freeze the funds runs counter to the wishes of the Obama administration and reflects Congressional anger at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who defied US wishes by taking his UN membership bid to the Security Council.
Jeez, I'm devastated.
Actually, I would like to see Israel relieve itself of the annual 3 billion in subsidies the American government provides to its own arms industry through providing weaponry to that country.
Israel needs to be independent and beholden to no one.
