“…provide funding for projects to help build the foundation for peaceful co-existence between Israelis and Palestinians and for a sustainable two-state solution.”

Great news!

According to their “halacha” once they rule a nation they need to continue ruling it forever. So they will NEVER accept a 2 state solution or they are breaking their laws.

you are not responding to someone who has the emotional capacity to be influenced by you anyone in 2020 who still hangs on to the long rotten corpse of the two state ‘solution’ is beyond discourse you just have to wait for them to see the light or not in the meantime, we were blessed with 4 too short years of sanity at the head of the United States Government in which the world was afforded the opportunity to see that the peace in the middle east has zero to do with fake nation who has contributed nothing at all… Read more »

Receive these funds? Their “leadership” pockets everything – this is proven & well-known. Believe whatever you want but it’s very important to be intellectually honest in life.

the arab’s do not in general hate us evidenced by much of that world falling over itself to come closer to us

the left hates progress because it hates humanity, and they will try as hard as the Almighty allows them to bring us back into the dark ages

The left are called progressives for a reason, we believe in moving this country forward towards a more liberal and just world. Conservatives are anti-progress, attempting to “make America great again,” code for move us back to the 1950s, a time when minorities were treated even more terribly than today.

Make America great again is a rallying cry to bring America back into economic prominence, yep, like it was in the 50s. Conservatives aren’t obsessed with race and thus the slogan had and has nothing to do with the state of race relations moving forward or backward. We do not believe race is a significant problem in the United States of America anymore. I know, whoa. You ‘progressives’ are going to impoverish the country as a sacrifice to your climate god. Let’s see how well your underprivileged like that. You ‘progressives’ are going to bring back the law of the… Read more »

So That's where our taxpayer money goes

Whatever it is that these Democrat reps care for, it’s not the American people. For this payment to terrorists they were holding back the stimulus plan that the White House was trying to put through months ago. Oh well, you get who you vote for.

It’s the republicans who have been holding up the stimulus checks. Thanks to their conservative outlook of only helping the rich, we’re only getting $600.

Republicans helping the rich??

You’ve been sadly brainwashed. Keeping small businesses And large afloat and helping employers cover payroll is saving lives not ‘helping the rich’.

By Democrats admitting not wanting to give Trump a win before the election and refusing a 1.8T stimulus package ? Now they push half of the amount and mostly not to Americans
It never hurts to know the facts before commenting

How sad.
December 21, 2020 5:43 pm

We all know this will do nothing and not go to the right places/people who need it and will use it earnestly. The only comforting thing is knowing G-d is in charge and has a plan. If not for trusting and knowing that, I would be much sadder.

So instead of $1200 - half goes to palestinians
December 21, 2020 5:55 pm

So instead of giving us $1200 stimulus checks we get $600 and the money goes to palestinians- from our taxpayer money

Nope

Instead of getting $1200, republicans refuse to help the American people, they cut it down to $600, and they used the other half to bail out the rich corporations. Republicans yet again only looking out for the wealthy.

You are definitely an outsider

Could certainly help a lot of small business owners that were ruined by BLM riots & lockdowns.

Did not ruin small businesses. They are standing up for justice and equality, something that is seriously lacking in this country and among Orthodox Jews.

Still trying?

All your comments and support of terrorism and hate.. are not doing a thing to influence anyone’s views on this platform. But you seem very interested in the community.. why not try an open mind and talk to people here, learn about joy, empathy, goodness and love.. all of which seem to be lacking in your life.

I've given up

This community is stuck in the dark ages, I stopped trying to educate the conservative, close minded, hateful among us. This isn’t the type of Judaism I want to be a part of.

Guess how I know you’re white?

Because you say BLM wants anything to do with equality.

BLM is a black supremacist organization. Their notion of justice has nothing at all to with equality. They explicitly don’t want equality. Only white people claim that on their behalf for bizarre reasons only G-d almighty understands.

Two state solution has been tried before…..it didn’t work then and it won’t work now. Their “leadership” is corrupt and they will not deal with the Jews or Israel. The people who actually need it will never see it and besides all this, I think charity begins at home…..why doesn’t this government fund its citizens first THEN fund the rest of handouts….a few cents here, a few cents there…..whatever is leftover. Our country’s families need it first, our kids need it first…..our widows and orphans need it first….

Misleading Title
December 21, 2020 8:02 pm

This bill was already passed back in July by the House as its own separate initiative. I haven’t seen anything yet in proper news channels but at most it may have been approved by the Senate at the same time as the stimulus package but the two have nothing to do with each other.

Here we go again...
December 22, 2020 12:27 pm

Can we stick to the topic, please? The topic was money for the “Palestinians,” more accurately, the Arabs that live in Gaza etc. The topic was NOT progressives vs. conservatives. I invite everyone to (re)read the excellent book The Ugly American to remind themselves of how funds and goods we send to nations whose leaders benefit from inculcating hatred towards us ( i.e. those nations whose leaders cleverly and conveniently blame us for all their failures) are, in fact, manipulated: The funds and goods are mislabeled, misappropriated, or, at best, mispresented as a long overdue apology due them.
