U.S. Funding of Hamas?

Help! I sent someone (a committed Liberal) and article wherein noted anti-Jihadi crusader, Andrew McCarthy, made the charge that the U.S. was now funding Hamas through its aid program to the Palestinians. My Liberal friend posed that this is a pretty serious charge…can it be proved?

I’m stuck in the wilds of the northern Rockies for the next week with only intermittent Wifi. My friend makes a point…can this very serious charge be proven?

DQ – btw – you are truly doing a Herculean performance on this blog. My hat is doffed.

    Fatah married the mob (Hamas). To insure a wedding gift from US coffers (aid) to the “Unity Government” – the happy couple tried to declare statehood at the local mosque (UN). There’s no accountability – otherwise Suha Arafat would be living in Gaza and not in Paris. It’s not the answer you’re looking for so, I sent an email to Money Jihad and hopefully will get a response. It’s one of the sites I read every couple of weeks.

    “To date, the United States has provided Israel $115 billion in bilateral assistance.”  http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/mideast/RL33222.pdf. And Israel “transfer of hundreds of millions of shekels (U.S. quarters_ to the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip every month. http://www.israeltoday.co.il/default.aspx?tabid=178&nid=16447

    So there you have it. The U.S. finances Hamas by given money to Israel. Or at least they did under President Bush.

    Throw that in that smarmy liberal’s face!

    There are so many programs from the U.S. and European governments that indirectly fund Hamas that it’s difficult to prove otherwise. Basically, foreign aid represents 60 percent of the Palestinian Authority’s budget. About half of the money is transferred to Hamas-controlled Gaza. The aid literally helps pay the salaries of Hamas employees. See these links especially and the links within the posts for details:
