-New Budget: Doubles Foreign Aid and Gives a Billion to Gaza?

by Dr. D ~ March 4th, 2009

( Picture of Two Hamas Militants- Wikipedia)

We are in the midst of a severe recession and yet the Obama administration is set on doubling the money spent on foreign aid in the new budget.

Now there is also a proposal by Sec. Hillary Clinton to send nearly a $Billion dollars to the Gaza Strip. According to Secretary Clinton provisions will be in place to insure that the money doesn’t go towards terrorism:

“We have worked with the Palestinian Authority to install safeguards that will ensure our funding is only used where and for whom it is intended and does not end up in the wrong hands.”

Clinton is hoping that the money will go towards rebuilding the economy of Gaza and repairing the damage done during the recent war.

Response: Most of the incredible spending by the new administration has been chalked up and sold as a ‘stimulus package’ to bring jobs and an economic recovery to the nation. How will doubling the $Billions already spent on foreign aid actually bring any benefit to this country which is already deep in recession and facing increasing budgetary deficits?

Sending a Billion to be used to relieve the current suffering in the Gaza is admirable but does anyone really believe that Hamas won’t end up with a good share of the funds and use it to rebuild their military capability?

I do believe that God will actually bless our nation if we spend money to relieve suffering among the poor and downtrodden of the world. But far too often our hard earned taxpaying dollars end up in the pockets of despots and/or are used to purchase weapons which end up ultimately bringing more war and suffering instead.            *Top
