Once again, just when I think I’ve heard everything, something happens that knocks the socks off of me. This one takes the cake!
I just heard, and have verified that it is true, that the grand and glorious United States of America, in our kind, benevolent and gracious manner, is blessing the Palestinian Authority (PA) with not only enough money to buy weapons to use against Israel, but with enough money to endow their dear terrorists who are serving time in Israeli jails with a stipend! Now mind you, it isn’t a small stipend as a gesture of kindness, but it is a generous stipend, enough to keep them and their families in the style and fashion they’ve never known before.
Terrorists who were jailed for periods up to five years receive 1,400 to 2,000 NIS (New Israeli Shekels) per month. Terrorists serving 20 to 15 years receive 6,000 shekels per month, with the very bravest terrorist of all – those serving 20 to 30 years, receive the generous sum of 12,000 NIS per month! Now lets do the math. The current exchange rate for a U.S. dollar to shekels is 3.528. That equates to $340 U.S. dollars a month for the beginners, or $4,080 per year to sit on their haunches and do nothing but think up other ways to hurt, maim or kill Jews. However, the really mean terrorists who are serving up to 30 years, get $3,401 per month, or $40,816 per year. Well bless their little damaged hearts!
Now don’t you go complaining about this, those poor guys deserve it. They had to work hard planning, directing and some of them had to actually take part in the intentional sadistic slaughter of Israeli civilian men, women and children at point blank range. Don’t you know, they worked hard for that money! And, to be truthful about it, some of those terrible Israelis they had to figure out how to hurt, were actually American citizens! Well, I guess that means that you and I, the American tax payer, owe it to those poor terrorists for killing or crippling our citizens. After all, we weren’t able to do it to them here and I guess someone had to do it for us.
On top of that, the terrorists’ wives and children receive additional cash and prisoners who actually hold Israeli citizenship, (that’s Palestinians who enjoy all the benefits and protection of being Israeli citizens) actually get a bonus! Well, isn’t that special.
Everyone knows the United States is having all kinds of financial trouble with ever growing debt ceilings, debt commissions and job creation so it is wonderful that we can help these poor terrorist find their way in the world. Due to the Israeli social struggle, the average Palestinian salary is only approximately 2,000 NIS ($567) per month, so I’m sure this is to help raise the income level for the under privileged in the area. But hey, maybe that’s the way we can help out some of the U.S. families that are unemployed. We can teach them how to cause mayhem, make bombs, kill innocent men, women and children – babies included – and then they, too, can earn their income and get off of welfare! What a brilliant idea. Must have been someone in Washington, D.C., that thought that up.
I don’t know about you, but my parents didn’t raise any stupid kids nor did we take stupid lessons. But someone in this world sure as heck did! When will stupid stop?
