    Anti-pullout Evangelicals may try to block US aid

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:06 pm

    I’m not sure how much good this can do, but I can understand not wanting the U.S. to pay for the eviction of Jews from Gaza. The bigger problem, however, is the billions of dollars thrown down the rat hole that is the Palestinian Authority. Aid to the PA is not only supporting the “disengagement”, it’s funding the terrorists that will use Gaza as a terrorist base once the Jews have been successfully evicted.

    A coalition of pro-Israel Evangelical groups is to meet in Washington in the near future to discuss whether to actively oppose US financial
    aid for Israel tied to disengagement, according to Richard Hellman, head of the Christians’ Israeli Public Action Committee.

    Israel and the US are currently talking about a $2.2 billion package, spread over four years, to offset disengagement costs and facilitate development of the Galilee and Negev.

    Hellman, head of a small Christian-based pro-Israel lobbying group who brought a group of CIPAC members here this week, said he was not sure
    Evangelical groups could support such aid and may even actively oppose it.

    If so, they would not be alone. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged that a leading member of the so-called Likud rebels
    opposed to disengagement went to Washington last week and lobbied an influential congressman against military aid for Israel tied to the plan.

    Hellman said that there was opposition among Evangelicals to aid to the Palestinians “because they have not accounted for tens of billions
    of dollars they have already received,” and opposition to disengagement-linked aid for Israel because it would mean the US is “inadvertently funding something that may be bad for US national
    security.”

    Hellman said his group was asking the administration and Congress to “look twice before supporting disengagement because of what it would
    mean for US security interests.”

    “If Israel, with all respect, is so foolish as to do this – pull its settlers and troops out of Gaza, and thereby give Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad reason for cheering and exultation that they defeated you again – that is your decision. But we say that America should not endorse this, police it or possibly pay for it,” Hellman said. . . . .
