    Truly hyperbole. They have received aid though for distribution to the Palestinian people smarting from the relentless Israeli campaign on civilians, and they are the legitimate government, whether or not the US likes it.

    Yes they gave aid to the Palestinian people but not $47 Billion, more like Million.

    Heya Glen. Yeah they kill this woman.....they will have more than the US to worry about. They had best not even think about doing it publicly. I think that would bring immediate action and from places these terrorists wouldn't expect.

    Also, that they never had the money to make the trade in the first place.
