A senator is warning that Joe Biden's proposed $100 million in "humanitarian" help for Gaza will go straight to the terrorists of Hamas.
That's the terror group that just two weeks ago sent armed invaders into Israel and killed some 1,300 innocent civilians, including families that were burned alive and babies who were beheaded.
Israel now is beginning a campaign to pursue its goal of wiping out Hamas, which is based in Gaza, often concealing its military weaponry in or near hospitals, schools, and residential neighborhoods so that innocent civilians are positioned as shields for the Hamas terrorists.
Biden, this week, pledged $100 million more American money for "humanitarian aid."
This is in addition to the hundreds of millions he's already dispatched since he reversed President Donald Trump's cancellation of such aid money because it was being used for terror.
A report at the American Center for Law and Justice said that Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., appeared on an ACLJ program and "stated her belief that not one of those 100,000,000 tax dollars will be used to aid displaced Palestinians in Gaza."
The report said, "It is far more likely that money will go to fund Hamas, the vile terrorist army that just viciously murdered 1,400 innocent people in Israel, and injured or abducted even more."
"We know that the money is ending up in the hands of Hamas. When you look at even this last week, what did they find Hamas doing? They were intercepting the aid coming into Gaza, and they were using that food, fuel, medical supplies, and first aid kits, they were using it for the terrorists, for their Hamas troops. So if you send more money, they are going to take that money. So why would you do that?" the senator said.
The ACLJ reported that the Hamas attacks on Israel, "backed by Iran," were followed by a "terrorist drone attack on a military base being used by U.S. troops in Iraq."
The senator was asked about Biden sending more money to Gaza, and she pointed out the "clueless" track record of Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan.
"It shows you how they misread the tea leaves if you will. Jake Sullivan has been wrong on just about every foreign policy issue that he has encountered . . . Jake Sullivan was a part of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. He was part of the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. He has been very involved in this ransom payment to Iran, $6 billion dollars. We all know you cannot appease these countries. Iran is a part of the Axis of Evil, with Russia, China, and North Korea. They are intent on destroying Israel, and the United States, and why in Heaven’s name this administration would continue to cajole, appease, and send money to these bad actors who end up funding terrorism, and funding their proxies like Hamas, and Hezbollah, to do their dirty deeds, it is beyond me."
Sullivan, in fact, claimed just days before the Hamas terror attack that, "The Middle East region is quieter today than it has been in two decades."
