Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein released the following statement:
The ZOA praises President Trump for proclaiming the United States should stop sending the Palestinian Authority (PA) $400 million of our American tax dollars each year – when the PA refuses to talk peace, and gives America no appreciation or respect. In two tweets, President Trump wrote:
It’s not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue. . . peace treaty with Israel. We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?
Indeed, the PA has continually disrespected America and the Trump administration. PA dictator Mahmoud Abbas blatantly lied to President Trump and Secretary of State Tillerson that the PA teaches “a culture of peace” – when in fact the PA promotes terrorism and the murder of Jews and Christians in their schools, textbooks, and government controlled media and mosques. Abbas also repeatedly refused President Trump’s most basic humanitarian demand to stop the PA’s absolutely heinous practice of paying terrorists to murder Jews. The PA spends $355 million per year – of our US tax dollars – to pay terrorists to murder Jews and Americans.
Pres. Trump: “With the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”
And most recently, Abbas and the PA pushed through the United Nations General Assembly a resolution criticizing President Donald Trump’s basic sovereign right to recognize Israel’s capital. (See “Mort Klein in Breitbart: UN Had No Legal Right to Vote Condemning Trump on Jerusalem,” Dec. 26, 2017.) The PA’s UN stunt is the ultimate insult to the United States: No one has ever condemned another nation at the UN for recognizing a UN member’s capital.
The PA’s insults and ridicule hurled at the U.S. president and administration know no bounds. In recent weeks, the official twitter account of the PA’s ruling party Fatah – which is headed by PA dictator Mahmoud Abbas – tweeted posters of President Trump together with Hitler saying that there is no difference between Trump and Hitler; posters with a red “VETO!” stamped across President Trump’s mouth saying “Trump is an irrelevant clown”; and posters with shoes strewn across the faces of President Trump and Vice President Trump (the Arab symbol for disrespect), threatening, among other things: “Beware! Jerusalem is not one of your casinos!” and “Jerusalem is a red line!” (The posters can be viewed at “Abbas` Fatah: Trump is Hitler – No Difference,” Palestinian Media …read more
