Obama Gives Palestinians Millions

“The easiest way to sum it up is that Congress had been looking at various behaviours from Palestine – unilateral attempts at statehood, corruption, incitement of violence, and paying salaries to people in jail for terrorism – and that’s why the hold has been there,” Dr Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told Business Insider.

“I was tracking President Obama’s 11th-hour moves on the Palestinians, and this issue never came up once … Most analysts and observers didn’t think Obama would or could do this,” Schanzer said.

The Palestinian Authority, which had been had been hurting for cash, used the money for “salaries unpaid and debts that are owed,” Schanzer said.

Schanzer, however, said the Palestinian Authority had done nothing to warrant this reversal on Obama’s part, characterizing activities such as corruption and incitement of violence as “ongoing.”

Obama is “releasing funds to a guy that’s become an autocrat,” Schanzer said.

Obama’s unilateral action came as he closed his presidency with a critical eye toward Israel. In December, the UN Security Council passed a resolution demanding that Israel stop building settlements on Palestinian land. The US refused to vote on the resolution, effectively allowing it to pass. Full Story


Obama’s lies ‘more important’ than Trump’s

“I think the substance of the previous president’s lies were much more important than the substance of what the crowd size was at the inaugural,” Santorum said, referring to the White House’s claim last year that Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest in history.

Unlike with Trump, Santorum argued, the media failed to hold Obama accountable for his false and misleading statements.

“I don’t think we’re putting it in the context that it needs to be put in, which is the media has focused a lot more on this president than it has President Obama,” he said.

Santorum’s comments came a day after The Washington Post’s Fact Checker unveiled a tally of Trump’s false and misleading statements since taking office, pegging the number at 3,001. Full Story
