Dear America: Where Does Your Money to Palestinians Go?

In the Arab Municipality of Yaabed in the West Bank, Palestinians have named a main thoroughfare paved by American tax-money, in honor of...the great friend of America, Saddam Hussein. Palestinian Media Watch has the scoop.

The Arab newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadeeda reported;
"In the Yaabid Municipality… thousands of citizens held a requiem for the soul of Saddam in the mosque. Following that, a march began in the streets of the municipality, that ended at the offices of the Yaabid Municipality, where a mourners’ tent was opened in his memory. Public figures and the [Armed] Factions in Yaabid decided to name one of the schools in the municipality and its most important street after Saddam to immortalize his memory and to emphasize the values of Arabness and Jihad, which he represented…" [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, January 4, 2007]
This main street was paved through USAid, as found in the PMW archives:
“The Yaabid Municipality in the Jenin area held a ceremony yesterday for the inauguration of a project of the paving of the main street of the municipality, funded by the United Stated Agency for International Development (USAID)… The project of paving and renovating the main entrance to the municipality and some of the inner streets is three kilometers long and cost $402,000.”
[Al-Ayyam, July 14, 2005]
While this story has been picked up by 2 websites that are routinely bashed for their unreliablity, (WND and CNS), I found the original on PMW, which is a far more respected site (and the source of the story).

Perhaps you should write your Senator or State Representative asking if this is the most efficient use of your tax dollars?

Speaking of unreliable news sites; someone sent me the following news story about the US forcing Israel from attacking Iranian nuclear reactors. It seems a bit off the wall to me. Has anyone heard of this site before? Are they wing-nuts? Moonbats? Somewhere in the middle?

The website you linked to, prisonplanet, is run by Alex Jones who could generously be described as a nut.

You can see the wikipedia entry about him here:

The bottom line is that he's a full-fledged 9/11 conspiracy theorist. He even believes that ex-Yankees pitcher Corey Lidle was killed by Republicans for electoral reasons.

Wow. So if I walked down that road I would be smacking Saddam Hussein with my shoes. Innumerable times.

Saddam Hussein - lower than the soles of my feet. Saddam Hussein, with dust, trash, and donkey crap all over him.

Pot-holed Hussein.

Jameel, did you notice this little blurb down at the bottom of Prisonplanet's home page?
"Alex welcomes New World Order expert, traditionalist Catholicism activist, Jeopardy! winner, and the father of actor/director Mel Gibson, Hutton Gibson, to discuss his son's recent epic film and the New World Order plan for global domination."

'nough said.

Those Palestinians took American money and named a street after an American enemy? We better take care not to give them guns or anything, they might use them against us.

Rock: That would never happen. Just like Rabin promised there would never be rockets on Ashkelon.

Bite your tounge, please!
