That’s the thing about the Palestinian leadership. They never illicit sympathy from me because they are so obviously crony. The PA feels like some northeastern American urban machine with even deeper marxist roots.
The Palestinian Authority may have legitimate grievances, but it is hard to take them seriously. It’s like Baltimore.

As Spencer reported, “‘Amid funding cut fears, PA purchases $50 million private jet for Abbas — report,’ Times of Israel, January 24, 2018″.
More specifically, “Even as the Palestinian Authority faces major funding cuts from the US, it has purchased a new luxurious $50 million private jet to be used by President Mahmoud Abbas, Hadashot news reported Wednesday….” The report continued, “Funding for the plane was said to have been provided both from the PA budget ($20 million) and from the Palestinian National Fund ($30 million)….”
Why are we sending these people money anyway? (We do know why. But why should we continue to?)
