    This White House has just announced their plans to send $400 Million in aid to the Palestinians. Have the Palestinians been good to Americans over the years? Do they deserve our Tax Dollars? Foreign Aid seems to be one of those issues that American Citizens have absolutely no say in at all. Our representatives never debate these aid packages publicly. They seem to get automatically approved with no American Citizen input and somewhat secretly. Would the majority of American Citizens support this Palestinian Aid package? Since our representatives wont listen to us,i would be interested in hearing what you all think about this. Thanks.

    It's yet another significant waste of taxpayer money.

    The Palestinians? Maybe... if there was such a person. This is a crock. Funny, but not one Palestinian existed prior to 1949.

    Nuff already.

    You should:

    1. Learn to think for yourself and quit parroting Israeli propaganda
    or
    2. Learn to do research

    I have a lot of questions about this Aid Package and many others. The Palestinians have not been good to Americans over the years. In fact they have even been involved with the killing of Americans in the past. What has a Palestinian Citizen ever given to an American Citizen? Hmm?

    All i've ever seen Palestinians do is burn American Flags and screech "Death to America!!" Yet we're going to send them more American Tax Payer cash? Seems pretty ludicrous to me.
