Hillary Supports Terrorist Education

How appropriate it is that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would support funding education for potential terrorists.

The Palestinians (who seem to have no problem letting Hamas and Hezbollah speak for them) want nothing short of the wholesale destruction of Israel and the slaughter of her people. Hillary wants to educate them with money stolen from the American people though. That ought to play well with her New York constituency.

Mrs. Clinton announced the Middle East Partnership Initiative during a visit to this Palestinian town last week. The four-year program will support about 10 scholarships each year for disadvantaged students to attend four-year courses at Palestinian universities. The program will also offer 25 “opportunity grants” to enable promising but disadvantaged young Palestinians to apply to American-accredited institutions in the United States or the Middle East, a State Department official told The Chronicle.

By "disadvantaged" they probably mean children not lucky enough for their family to get a cash payout from the terrorists because one of their siblings blew themselves up outside of an Israeli cafe.

Congress has to approve the money but she won't have any problem doing that. According to the article, this is above and beyond the $900 million she already pledged to them.

Last year several Palestinian students from Gaza who were awarded Fulbright scholarships ran into difficulty entering Israel to complete the application process, and two of them were subsequently denied entry visas to the United States on security grounds.

Shocking isn't it?
