Funding Terror: Biden Set To Resume Cash Payments To Palestine & Undermine Trump's Israel Pivot

The Palestinians never were a people, in fact, the PLO, the group now leading the Palestinian Authority was a creation of the Soviet Union to sow discord in the Middle East as a way to bring the Arab world into their sphere of influence. President Trump knew this and stopped sending cash to fund Terror against Israelis. Now, Biden is poised to reverse that - and abandon America's R & D ally.

Some of the most effective weapons and defense systems have come from Israel. Yes, America gives Israel Billions each year, but it is not to feed the people, it is not to build roads, is not to help the economy, in fact, the Israeli economy is one of the strongest in the world - the money is not Aid as Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and clueless AOC would have you believe, the money pays for the research to ensure that the U.S. owns and controls the military technology that Israel is known for.

It is why the F-35 is the best in the world, and it is why the Iron Dome, David's Sling, and now, a laser weapon that can shoot down ballistic missiles are America's weapons as well. Now, Joe Biden is headed to Israel to undo that relationship by kowtowing to Palestine - resuming the Billions sent to Palestine that pay for terror campaigns and enriches the kleptocracy that runs it - and wag a finger at Israel for not doing more to placate Palestinian demands

To this point, the Biden administration declared a dramatic yet partial reversal of Donald Trump’s closure of the consulate to the Palestinians in Jerusalem by establishing a "U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs" in the city.

Biden’s move is regarded by some as rewarding the Palestinian leadership following a wave of terrorism throughout which two Palestinians wielding an ax and knife killed three Israelis in the town of Elad in May.

The last month, Raad Hazem, a 28-year-old Palestinian gunman from Jenin, murdered three people and wounded six others in a crowded bar in Tel Aviv.

A prominent former Trump official regards the upgrade of the Palestinian Affairs Unit, until now part of the embassy to Israel, as a setback for the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

"We had a consul-general in West Jerusalem for decades dedicated to Palestinian affairs, which meant Palestinians had to cross into West Jerusalem for any consular affairs related to the United States," Victoria Coates, a former deputy national security adviser for the Middle East and North Africa under Trump, explained to Fox News Digital.

"Since 2018, their affairs have been handled by a proper U.S. Embassy, which also happens to be in West Jerusalem. This unnecessary change with the Palestinians will only prolong the stalemate between them and Israel and will not bring us any closer to peace than the old ConGen [consulate-general] did [before Trump]."

Israel’s former Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon further weighed in.

"The Biden administration is reverting to past failed practices," Danon explained to Fox News Digital. "Although the announced changes are essentially bureaucratic in nature, with amendments to names and reporting lines, it is the symbolism of the move which hits home for some. It signals an upgrade in relations with the possibility of more fruitless promises to come.

"The Abraham Accords moved beyond broken paradigms and looked for new solutions," Danon, who is also chairman of World Likud, went on. "This new path has been astoundingly successful. It is perhaps time for the current U.S. administration to cast aside past failed policies and look to set a new, sound strategy."

The Trump administration helped to negotiate groundbreaking agreements to normalize diplomatic relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

The Israeli government vehemently rejects a reopening of the Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem because it would undercut the holy city as the undivided capital of Israel. Jerusalem suggests that the U.S. open its Palestinian consulate in Ramallah, the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestine Authority.

Fox News Digital sent questions to the U.S. State Department,Thursday. In an emailed response a State Department spokesperson declared that, "The former Palestinian Affairs Unit is now called the Office of Palestinian Affairs (OPA). It continues to be led on the ground in Jerusalem by the Chief of the Office, George Noll."
