“As you know, sending aid to the Palestinians in Gaza is akin to funneling aid directly to Hamas.”
Ten Senate Republicans asked Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to reject President Joe Biden’s request for $9 billion for Gaza humanitarian aid.
It’s simple: “As you know, sending aid to the Palestinians in Gaza is akin to funneling aid directly to Hamas.”
The $9 billion is part of Biden’s plan for $106 billion for the border, Israel, and Hamas.
It is common knowledge that any aid for Gaza goes to Hamas, which has controlled Gaza since 2007:
As we’ve seen in the past, this so-called “humanitarian aid” will likely be channeled through international organizations, including the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). This is not speculation — just last week, we saw reports that Hamas stole fuel and medical equipment from UNRWA, which the organization initially admitted but then subsequently denied. UNICEF medical kits were even found on the bodies of Hamas terrorists from the horrific October 7th attack. For over a decade, Hamas has stolen aid from UNRWA intended for the Palestinian people, and the organization has a well documented history of antisemitism. For example, UNRWA distributes educational materials that teach Palestinian children to hate Jews, and which glorify acts of terrorism.
Ukraine, of course, would get $61.4 billion, the majority of the request:
The request includes $30 billion for the Department of Defense to help supply Ukraine with weapons and replenish U.S. stocks. There is also $14.4 billion to support military intelligence in Ukraine and $481 million to help assist displaced Ukrainians arriving in the U.S.
Biden requested $14.3 billion for Israel. This includes $10.6 billion for air and missile support and $3.7 billion to help the State Department “assist in embassy support and foreign military financing.”
The $13.6 billion for border security is meant “to hire 1,300 additional border patrol agents, 1,600 new asylum officers and 375 new judge teams.” About $1.2 billion will go “to counter smuggling of the deadly drug fentanyl.”
The $9.15 billion is meant “for humanitarian needs across Israel, Ukraine, Gaza and other global needs.” Any leftover money will be used for “border migration and refugee assistance.””] DONATE
