Weiner: No More Palestinian Aid

Weiner: No More Palestinian Aid

In meetings this week with Arab, European, Russian, and U.N. leaders in New York City, Secretary of State Colin Powell is expected to seek increased aid for the Palestinian Authority.  Representative Anthony Weiner, who represents Rockaway, sponsor of legislation to cut U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority, issued the following statement:

"As Secretary Powell travels to New York City to meet with international leaders, Congress should act now to end U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority.  Every year we send hundreds of millions in aid-more than $500 million since 1999-and every year scores of innocent Israeli's are slaughtered by Palestinian terrorists.  Yet we still are slated to send an additional $280 million more this year. 

"This morning, terrorists wielding guns and explosives ambushed a bus in the West Bank, killing seven.  Every taxpayer dollar we send to the PA frees up other monies to fund this kind of terrorist operation.  No more aid until the bloodshed ends."
