Aid to Palestinians increases despite ‘cutoff’

You probably thought that the Palestinian people were suffering mightily from the cutoff of funds to the Palestinian Authority as a result of the Hamas government’s accession to power.

Well, think again. They may well be suffering, but the international community is pumping more aid into the territories than before.

The Western bloc has simply funneled its increased aid through the office of President Mahmoud Abbas instead of the official PA treasury, controlled by Hamas. Of course, Hamas is also receiving funds from its benefactors in the Arab world, so the total is even greater.

You can read the details in this report from CAMERA.
