Jim Zanotti, MA, JD, Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs at the Congressional Research Service (CRS), in a July 3, 2014 CRS report titled “U.S. Foreign Aid to the Palestinians,” available at the U.S. Department of State website, wrote:


“Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed approximately $5 billion in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid. Successive Administrations have requested aid for the Palestinians in apparent support of at least three major U.S. policy priorities of interest to Congress:

– Preventing terrorism against Israel from Hamas and other militant organizations.

– Fostering stability, prosperity, and self-governance in the West Bank that inclines Palestinians toward peaceful coexistence with Israel and a ‘two-state solution,’

– Meeting humanitarian needs…

The European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) department’s Dec. 2014 Fact Sheet titled “Palestine,” available from ec.europa.eu, stated:


“EC funding for Palestine in 2014 stands at €33.6 million [about $40.7 million US in Dec. 2014], benefiting more than two million Palestinians. Almost a quarter of the funding has been allocated to legal assistance to families living in Area C and East Jerusalem [in the West Bank], emergency response to demolitions and evictions, and coordination with other humanitarian partners.

Out of the €33.6 million, €25.6 million [about $31 million US in Dec. 2014], has been made available to support emergency operations of key humanitarian partners in Gaza… ECHO’s overall assistance in Gaza in 2014 will reach around 800,000 people.

Since year 2000, ECHO has provided a total of €700 million [about $847.7 million US in Dec. 2014] in humanitarian aid to help meeting the basic needs of the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.”

The Portland Trust and the Palestine Economic Policy Research Institute, in the June 2013 edition of the Palestinian Economic Bulletin, available at their website, wrote:


“The Palestinian Authority (PA) 2013 budget estimates total external aid at around $1.4bn… Around $1.05bn of aid constitutes direct budgetary support, while $350m is to be allocated to development expenditure. The budgeted foreign aid for 2013 is almost 130% of the assistance received by the PA as budgetary support during 2012… Most of the budgetary aid during the first four months of 2013 came from the US ($200m), Arab donors ($154m, the majority from Saudi Arabia), the EU ($108m, allocated through the PEGASE mechanism) and the World Bank ($63m).”

Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority and Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), and the governments of Egypt and Norway, at the conclusion of the Oct. 12, 2014 Cairo International Conference on Palestine: Reconstructing Gaza, attended by 63 states and 18 international organizations, in a document titled “Conclusions by the Chair,” available from the Arab Republic of Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, wrote:


“The participants pledged approximately USD 5.4 billion, half of which will be dedicated for Gaza reconstruction, and committed themselves to start disbursing their assistance as soon as possible in order to bring about rapid improvements to the daily lives of the Palestinians. The Chair urges the international community to honour its pledges and to provide generous support over the next years.

The Conference also welcomed pledges of important in-kind assistance. The EU announced its readiness to provide operational support on the ground, including a presence at points of entry and exit, and training and assistance in capacity-building, as well as its readiness to explore options for supporting a land link between the West Bank and Gaza, and a maritime link with the outside world.”


About urielperez

His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world Uriel has done close to 500 interviews in Israel Jerusalem, and many more to come our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism .Israel is facing many challenges and dangers, and has been for a very long time. There is, an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, to discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and its state, in its own land!. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign.This propaganda campaign by the Arab League - both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America - has caused to Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism Israel has suffered many terror attacks from terrorist .Israel should not bow down to any pressure imposed by the USA the EU. the Quartet nor the UN The current Obama administration continues to work behind the scenes by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda as I call it. The Obama administration is trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past .Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley are at the negotiating table and if the so called Palestinians obtain Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat Haroe'eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv'at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot, outside Hevron. they can easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel and Israel will be left without defensible borders . We say no land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Barrack Hussein Obama has a hidden agenda against Israel. Israel will face many difficult days ahead See Psalms 83' as we have seen what happened with Gush Katif were almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure , now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same consequence .More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel over 11,000, just to Sderot by Islamist extremist who want the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorist who are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah.Iran Lebanon Hezbollah Syria want the total destruction of Israel and now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. The Moslem/ Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” nearly 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews. No people or nation ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land there is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one have cl...aim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there See Quote from Quran', Death to the enemies of Allah Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is forgiving and merciful.Al-Maidah The Table 5:33-34 This is what radical Islam say's about us Jews' "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). Judea and Samaria also faces many challenges in the days to come as Abbu Massen will try to pressure the entire world and US President Barrack Hussein Obama the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace we saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed more terror against Israel . Abbu Massen the PA. leader approached the United Nations this past November 2012 and has ask them to declare them a recognized nation within Israel known borders. The time has come to tell the entire world the real truth about the enemies of Israel .We speak on the Quran with a Power Point with videos.
