Just in case the $300 dollars for every man woman and child in the so called Palestinian territories that we have been sending for the last several decades (yes that is more than $300 million dollars a year, most of which apparently goes to Suha Arafat in Paris), Our intrepid leader decided that they needed an extra $20 MILLION dollars 2 weeks ago while the stimulus bill was being discussed.
That would be $20 million to HAMAS. You know, that group that had a phone bank for him in the Gaza strip, and donated an as yet still undetermined amount to his campaign…
