    How much money to Palestinians?

    I'm sure the answers I need are somewhere, but I'm having trouble locating them.

    1. How much money does the US give directly to the "Palestinians" each year?

    2. How much money does the United Nations give to "Palestinians" each year?

    3. How much money does the US give to Israel each year?


    I found this: http://www.wrmea.com/html/us_aid_to_israel.htm

    Unfortunately, I don't have enough information to refute it; however I doubt its accuracy.

    Some other relevant questions that border yours:

    Money given to Palestinians by: the EU, other NGOs aside from the UN bodies, Iran, Saudis and friends.

    Money given by the US to Jordan, and Egypt.

    WRMEA is just another anti-Semitic hate site under the guise of being pro-Palestinian. There is no shortage of conspiracy theories and lies on their website, along with a few doses of Holocaust denial:

    There's this:

    Since 1993, the United States has given more than $1.5 billion to Palestinians -- some directly to the Palestinian Authority and some through the United Nations and private aid groups.For 2006, the United States budgeted $234 million for Palestinian aid. Last year, the European Union gave the Palestinian Authority more than $600 million.

    and this:


    EU total Aid since 2005: $600m
    US total Aid since 2005:$400m


    Unicef documented ODA - "Official development assistance"
    ODA inflow in millions US$, 2004 $1136 (=1.136 billion dollars just for one year it seems).

    The harder stuff to tract is all the Iranian funding, and the previous Iraqi funding, and also the Zakat from all over the Muslim world.

    Oh, toda raba!!! You are wonderful, Bararallu!

    Now, I will ask a dumb question: does any other country than the US give aid to Israel? Gosh, I'm sure Iran does, but besides that, you know.

    here is a source with some teeth and details: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/.../paaidtoc.html

    and check out the sublinks like: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/...ael/paaid.html
    http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/...paaid2005.html

    Then there is this study which tracks aid and homocides by Palestinian Arabs:
    http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_co...x_article=1362

    And this which shows the state of the Pal economy PER PERSON:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4793290.stm

    Note that the 2005 GDP was $934 / person and Foregin Aid was $469 or over 50% of their economy.

    Here is a good summary as well: http://www.honestreporting.com/artic...an_Poverty.asp


    And then there is this, which desribes the Palestinians as the worlds largetst per capita recipitents of international aid: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/17/in...on&oref=slogin

    I actually wish the US stopped giving aid to Israel, and, commensurately, stop aid to Egypt; the rest of the Arabs (perhaps not Jordan), and definitely dump aid to Pakistan, at least Egypt and the Paleos. That wont happen of course. All this money comes with a price. For the Palestinians, they are Sunnis beholden to the wishes of radical Shia taskmasters, for the most part. For Israelis, we are a large US military base.

    Scattergood, this is really fantastic; toda! Let's just say that I have an engagement this weekend with some people who are known to be highly pro-Pally, and I really wanted to be prepared. I have a lot of good reading and absorbing to do. Again, thank you so much. I really appreciate it.
