Uncle Sam (Obama) Bails out Palestinian Authority

On Monday, Aug. 24, Federal District Judge George Daniels ordered the Palestinian Authority (PA) to put up just $10 million in cash or as a bond and pay $1 million a month as they appeal a $655.5 million judgment against it. This is an extraordinarily low amount for the bond, given the judgment rendered by the jury.

Judge Daniels stated that he took “serious consideration” of the letter from the State Department about the precarious financial conditions of the PA and thus set the very low bond as he lets the PA and PLO appeal the verdict to the Second Circuit court. The State Department came in on the side of the PA.

In backing the PA through a Statement of Interest filed with the court, the State Department may have helped delay the day of reckoning for the PA. The U.S. government claimed that the economic demise of the PA was of critical concern to the U.S., and thus felt compelled to interfere in our case, on the side of people found guilty of providing material support for terror against American citizens.
