American’s have been economically devastated because of the spread of the Coronavirus. Yet Bernie Sanders wants the American taxpayer to give money to the jihadists in Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Low life!
As Americans go Broke, Sanders Demands Taxpayers Give Hamas $75 Million
By BIN, March 30, 2020:
A group of Democratic senators called for the U.S. State Department to reverse its policy and give funding to the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.
Democratic Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Tom Udall (D-NM), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Tom Carper (D-DE), and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting that the government reverse its policy and resume giving monetary aid to the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria and the Hamas-led government in Gaza.
“Given the spread of the coronavirus in the West Bank and Gaza, the extreme vulnerability of the health system in Gaza, and the continued withholding of U.S. aid to the Palestinian people, we are concerned that the Administration is failing to take every reasonable step to help combat this public health emergency in the Palestinian Territories,” the letter read.
The Democratic politicians seek to squeeze $75 million in aid to the Hamas-led government in Gaza and the PA in Judea and Samaria under the guise of the FY 2020 Appropriations Act.
Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination to run for president in November.
His support of the move is consistent with his campaign platform.
In October, he said that part of the annual US military assistance should be used to “leverage Israel to fundamentally change [its] relationship to the people of Gaza,” with some of the aid being immediately diverted.
