Obama’s administration seeks a way to fund Hamas

If during previous US administrations terrorist groups were required to at least formally renounce terrorism by uttering the “magic” words (although Fatah still refuses to recognize Israel and has a terrorist “military wing” Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades), these days even this is not necessary: simply list your FTO under a more-or-less legitimate “roof” and start raking millions of US federal aid.

LAT reports about “minor changes” – nothing to worry about!

The administration seeks changes that would permit aid to Palestinians even if officials backed by Hamas, which has been designated a terrorist group, become part of a unified Palestinian government.

The Palestinian group is designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization and under law may not receive federal aid.

But the administration has asked Congress for minor changes in U.S. law that would permit aid to continue flowing to Palestinians in the event Hamas-backed officials become part of a unified Palestinian government.
