U.S. AID for Terror- Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa A. Lappen (FrontPageMagazine)
Since 1994, the CIA armed and trained thousands of Palestinian "security forces," who subsequently joined every Palestinian terrorist organization.   CIA Palestinian training success is best described by a member of the PA chairman's own security unit - Force 17 - officer Abu Yusef:

"The operations of the Palestinian resistance would [not] have been so successful and would not have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000, and defeated the Israelis in Gaza without [American military] training," he boasted in August 2007.

American officials are again pressing Congress to open up the U.S. aid pipeline to the Palestinian Authority. We are told that unless we help fund the training and the payment of Palestinian security forces, the PA will have no way to cope with terrorists who want to sink any chance of a two-state solution which would enable Israel to live side-by-side with a peaceful Palestinian partner. Reinforcing the PA seems to make sense. But does it really?

The support by the PA media for attacks against Israelis, such as the slaughter of eight students at a Jerusalem yeshiva this month, as well as the ongoing blitz of southern Israel by Hamas missiles, is reason to doubt the PA's sincerity. The PA also continues to honor the memory of slain terrorists as "martyrs," and plans to celebrate Israel's 60th birthday by having Arab refugees rush Israel's borders to promote a "right of return," which is synonymous with the destruction of the Jewish state. America's attempts to create a Palestinian peace partner have failed. No amount of money will buy us a moderate state that will accept peace with Israel if the Palestinians don't want one.
