A Big Wet Kiss From Fatah And Hamas
...To the American taxpayer, who's been funding their weapons. Ulrike Putz interviews Hamas leader-thug Mahmoud Zahar in Der Spiegel:

SPIEGEL ONLINE: The militant wings of Fatah and Hamas have been fully armed over the last few months. Are these weapons still in circulation?

Zahar: There are naturally very many weapons around now. Two years ago, one bullet in Gaza cost around €3.50 -- now it would cost 35 cents. The American aid money has been translated into weapons. Thank you, America!

Is the Palestinian scumbag's gloat true? It's certainly possible.

New York Congressman Anthony D. Weiner complained to Condi about our cash dole-out in February:

Dear Secretary Rice:

In light of reports that American aid may be used to finance Hamas militants under the terms of the Mecca accords, I write to request that you immediately halt security funding intended for Mahmoud Abbas’s security force.

The new National Unity Government will incorporate Hamas’s 4,000-member paramilitary Executive Force into the American-funded security detail that protects Abu Mazen. That means that American funds may be used to fund the salaries of Hamas militants.

The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act, which President Bush signed December 21, 2006, suspended all direct United States aid to the Palestinian Authority, but permits the President to waive the prohibition if providing aid is in the interest of American national security. Under that wavier authority, President Bush issued a January 26, 2007 waiver to send $86 million to Abbas’s security force.

Providing funding to Hamas militants is not in the security interests of the United States. Therefore, I request that you immediately rescind all remaining funds intended for the security detail.

More on the cash surge to the Palestinians from The New York Times, from a story by Helene Cooper:

“This is as serious as it gets,” said Ziad Asali, head of the American Task Force on Palestine. “It is time to lift the siege off the Palestinian people. This is the time to open up the political and economic horizons, and wage a campaign for the hearts and minds of the Palestinian people.

Walmart-ize weapons purchasing, and they'll just love us.

Hi, Amy!

Meet my favorite Bush quote of all time, as quoted in by Karl Rove in an article in The New Yorker, Party Unfaithful - The Republican Implosion: "Feed a terrorist, arm a terrorist, train a terrorist, fund a terrorist, you’re just as bad as a terrorist."


Actually, I'm sure he said, "Feed a terr'ist, arm a terr'ist..."


Does our Narcissistic Dolt-in-chief realize he just called Ronald Reagan and his own father "just as bad as terr'ists"?

So, it's no surprise to me that Bush himself would also be "just as bad as a terr'ist."
