Update: Welcome to readers of Gateway Pundit who notes ‘Palestinian’ Official Calls for Hamas-Fatah Alliance to Destroy Israel.
Hillary Clinton sides with Palestinians over Republicans, Sara Sorcher of National Journal reports:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is allowing U.S. funds to flow to the West Bank and Gaza despite a hold by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., a rare display of executive-branch authority sure to anger the key lawmaker concerned about protecting her congressional oversight role.
A State Department official said that the letter was delivered on Tuesday to key members of Congress informing them of Clinton’s decision to move forward with the $147 million package of the fiscal year 2011 economic support funds for the Palestinian people, despite Ros-Lehtinen’s hold. Administrations generally do not disburse funding over the objections of lawmakers on relevant committees.
“[The funds deliver] critical support to the Palestinian people and those leaders seeking to combat extremism within their society and build a more stable future. Without funding, our programs risk cancellation,” the official, who was not authorized to speak about the issue, said in an e-mail. “Such an occurrence would undermine the progress that has been made in recent years in building Palestinian institutions and improving stability, security, and economic prospects, which benefits Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
Obama, Clinton, Holder et al have no regard for Congress, the Constitution, the rule of law or Americans. It doesn’t matter that Gaza is run by terrorist Hamas (elected by the people) or that the U.S. is forbidden from sending money to Hamas. They do what they want, when they want, with your money and not a single elected official or anyone who swore to uphold the Constitution does shit about it.
