Road to Peace Not by Funding Terrorists

By Matthew Clark1364945711000

The Obama Administration has embarked down a dangerous road of “sequester-era stimulus for radical foreign governments.”  The Administration is sending a half a billion dollars to the terrorist-led Palestinian Authority, $250 million to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood led government, and shipments of some of our most powerful and sophisticated weaponry of war to that same anti-Israel Egyptian government.

All of this taxpayer funding of radical regimes has been over the strong objections of Congress and the American people.

Now, the Obama Administration is asking Congress to approve an additional $200 million in funding for the terrorist-led Palestinian Authority.

At a time when budget cuts are critically necessary, where are our priorities as a nation?  Why are we sending billions upon billions of our tax dollars to radical regimes - regimes which pose a significant threat to stability in the Middle East and continually spew hate and call for the destruction of our ally Israel?

Not only do these funds dangerously prop up a Palestinian unity government with the vile terrorist group Hamas, which has continually lobbed rockets at Israeli civilians, a portion of those funds are directed toward Palestinian “law enforcement.”  This type of funding has been repeatedly criticized as the “US training Israel’s enemies.”

As ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow wrote on FoxNews.com, “It is difficult to overstate the absurdity of these gifts. . . . The pattern of American foreign aid now becoming clear:  We borrow billions from China to subsidize and even prop up regimes that defy us at every turn.”

If there is one thing that history has taught us, it’s that we can never hope to achieve any real peace by funding the sworn enemies of our allies and those who wish our destruction.

The road to peace cannot be paved by funding terrorists.

This message must be made loud and clear to our leaders in Congress and in the White House: Stop funding the Muslim Brotherhood; stop funding jihad.  Sign the petition to sequester radical regimes today.

With the “attack in Nice, France” that left 84 people dead and scores injured, we are again pointedly reminded that we are at war. Whether or not it is a declared war or if the Obama Administration acknowledges that we are at war, the facts speak for themselves. About every two weeks a jihadist...

ACLJ Seeks Facts on "Jihad” Word-Purge

By Benjamin P. Sisney1468428870386

The Obama Administration, in lockstep with groups like Muslim Advocates and CAIR, is hamstringing our ability as a nation to combat jihadist terror. How? By prohibiting the use of “offensive” religious, legal, and cultural terms like “jihad,” “sharia,” “takfir” or “umma.” That’s right. The...

The ISIS Jihadist Next Door

By Matthew Clark1468010576971

Maybe he wasn’t literally next door, but this ISIS operative – his target, Washington, DC – lived just streets away from my family. My wife and kids shopped in the same grocery stores, the same Targets, the same Walmarts – as he planned his attack. Thankfully, the FBI just arrested him this...
