Being an incurable optimist, Barack Obama believes "When life gives you blockades, make blockade aid."
And that's exactly what he's doing: giving $400 million taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians to show how sorry the U.S. is that 9 political "activists" were killed in the Gaza blockade while in the process of beating and stabbing Israeli soldiers.
The money is intended to build housing, schools, water facilities, and healthcare systems...all of which sounds pretty good until you realize that this theoretically frees up the Palestinians to spend their own money on other things. Things that go "boom" in a variety of deadly and heartbreaking ways.
And just to make absolutely sure our former allies understand that they're being thrown under the bus, Barack Hussein Obama said that the U.S. will "work with Israel to loosen its "unsustainable" grip on Gaza."
Really? That's working with Israel? Makes you wonder what working against Israel would look like!
Oh yeah...it would look like we're funding her enemies.
