(IsraelNN.com) The United States has alerted Syrian diplomats that America has decided to lift various embargos against Syria, with more suspensions of embargos on the way.

Dr. Imad Mustafa, Syria's ambassador to Washington, told Syrian television Sunday that U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama has suspended several articles of the U.S. sanction against Syria, with more suspensions to come, according to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

US transfers $200 million in aid to Palestinians

RAMALLAH, West Bank The United States has transferred $200 million to the Palestinian government to help ease a growing budget deficit, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday.

Earlier this year, the Obama administration pledged $900 million in aid to the Palestinians, and the $200 million in budget support announced Friday are part of that sum. Clinton told Fayyad that the transfer of U.S. aid directly to his budget was an expression of confidence in his fiscal reforms.

"The ability of the United States to provide support directly to the Palestinian Authority is an indication of the bipartisan support for the effort to secure the peace in the Middle East, as well as for the fundamental reforms that the Palestinian Authority has undertaken," she said. "Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle worked closely with us to make this assistance possible."

Hey, good idea. I'm glad we have enough spare cash laying around to hand $1 billion to a foreign country that hates us, while my own state is laying off thousands of teachers and letting prisoners out of jail early, and the county just cut the number of bus routes in half.

But who cares -- since it's the federal government, why not just pile it on top of the couple trillion they already wasted this year? Nobody ought to notice.

Anti-Obama Rally in Jerusalem

(IsraelNN.com) For the first time in years, the nationalist camp will hold a large scale rally against United States policies vis--vis Israel.

“Not since the days of [U.S. Secretary of State Henry] Kissinger has there been such a protest against American policies,” said MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh), chairman of the National Union party. “The pressure that Barack Hussein Obama is exerting against us to simply stop growing and stop living will not work.”

C'mon now...terrorist groups have bills to pay and mouths to feed just like the rest of us... i guess you can file it under another bush failed policy... you know...the funding of terrorist

President Bush has proposed a sixfold increase in aid to the Palestinians, including $150 million in direct cash transfers to the Palestinian Authority, in an effort to bolster the government in advance of a Middle East peace conference planned for later this month in Annapolis.

The $435 million in additional aid, on top of $77 million requested earlier this year, has attracted little notice in the president's $45.9 billion supplemental request last week to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But, if approved, it would constitute the administration's largest amount of direct aid to the Palestinian Authority. Previously, the administration had limited cash transfers to $50 million at a time.

The Bush administration largely cut off aid to the Palestinian government when the militant group Hamas unexpectedly won legislative elections in 2006. But earlier this year, a unity government deal between Hamas and its Fatah rivals collapsed. Hamas forcibly took over the Gaza Strip, leaving the Fatah-led government in charge of only the West Bank.

The budget justification said the $150 million cash transfer would help the Palestinian government avert "an immediate fiscal crisis," while $130 million more in project assistance would help create "immediate employment opportunities" that would demonstrate "moderates can deliver jobs and provide hope for a better economic future."

An additional $40 million would be devoted to improving the administration of Palestinian ministries, $10 million would be used to provide security for experts overseeing the project assistance, $25 million is aimed at narcotics enforcement, and $25 million would be devoted to training Palestinian forces loyal to Abbas. Also, $20 million would be used to make "immediate improvements" in delivering health care at government clinics. The remaining $35 million would help refugees.

Right To Fight Bush Palestinian Aid Plan

WASHINGTON — Right-wing groups are gearing up to fight a Bush administration plan to increase American aid to the Palestinians and channel it directly to the Palestinian Authority.

The Zionist Organization of America and several Christian evangelical groups are planning to “try to convince Congress not to finance the evolution of a terrorist state,” said the ZOA’s national president, Morton Klein.

However, Capitol Hill sources say that an administration request for a direct infusion of increased aid to the authority is likely to win easy approval on Capitol Hill.

The administration request, which has not yet been made, is expected to include two components: delivering aid directly to the P.A. — not through non-governmental organizations as is the arrangement today — and a significant increase in the scope of the American aid to the authority.

National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice reportedly raised the idea of a comprehensive rehabilitation of the Palestinian economy through American funds during meetings with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials on her visit to Israel this week. Rice was scheduled to meet a group of presidents of Jewish organizations Wednesday to report on her trip and secure Jewish support for the administration’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

During her trip to Israel, according to a report in the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot, Rice floated the idea of an aid package of up to $1 billion. While congressional aides doubted that such a high amount would be forthcoming from American sources, they said that an administration request for an increase in aid to the P.A. would probably encounter minor opposition.

personally i think foriegn aid is , and always has been a crock... how they can justify taking OUR money out of OUR paychecks and send it to another country ,especially considering there's people HERE in great need of financial help. i mean we have people HERE that go to bed hungry, people HERE that go without thier meds because they can't pay for them. we have schools HERE closing because they don't fit the budget. i mean, when every single american is living above poverty level, THEN , they can talk about giving handouts to other countries. until THEN they need to cut this shit out..!!! end rant.

if you read the article, you'll notice the word " iran " , comes up often.


http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2009/04/06/090406fa_fact_hersh

Many Israelis and Americans involved in the process believe that a deal on the Golan Heights could be a way to isolate Iran, one of Syria’s closest allies, and to moderate Syria’s support for Hamas and for Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite group. Both Hamas and Hezbollah are listed as terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department. There is a competing view: that Assad’s ultimate goal is not to marginalize Iran but to bring it, too, into regional talks that involve America—and perhaps Israel. In either scenario, Iran is a crucial factor motivating each side.

These diplomatic possibilities were suggested by Senator John Kerry, of Massachusetts, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, who met with Assad in Damascus in February—his third visit since Assad took office, in 2000. “He wants to engage with the West,” Kerry said in an interview in his Senate office. “Our latest conversation gave me a much greater sense that Assad is willing to do the things that he needs to do in order to change his relationship with the United States. He told me he’s willing to engage positively with Iraq, and have direct discussions with Israel over the Golan Heights—with Americans at the table. I will encourage the Administration to take him up on it.

“Of course, Syria will not suddenly move against Iran,” Kerry said. “But the Syrians will act in their best interest, as they did in their indirect negotiations with Israel with Turkey’s assistance—and over the objections of Iran.”

As the Bush era wound down, U.S. allies were making their own openings to Syria. In mid-November, David Miliband, the British Foreign Secretary, distressed the White House by flying to Damascus for a meeting with Assad. They agreed that Britain and Syria would establish a high-level exchange of intelligence. Vice-President Dick Cheney viewed the move by Britain—“perfidious Albion,” as he put it—as “a stab in the back,” according to a former senior intelligence official.

Martin Indyk said, “If the White House engages with Syria, it immediately puts pressure on Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah.” He said that he had repeatedly sought, without success, to convince the Bush Administration that it was possible to draw Syria away from Iran. In his recent memoir, “Innocent Abroad,” Indyk wrote, “There is a deep divergence between Iran and Syria, captured in the fact that at the same time as Iran’s president threatens to wipe Israel off the map, his Syrian ally is attempting to make peace with Israel. . . . Should negotiations yield a peace agreement, it would likely cause the breakup of the Iranian-Syrian axis.” When we spoke, he added, referring to Assad, “It will not be easy for him to break with Hezbollah, Hamas, and Iran, but he cannot get a peace deal unless he does. But, if he feels that things are moving in the Middle East, he will not want to be left behind.”

Syria key to regional power shift
http://english.aljazeera.net/focus/2009/07/2009727105039364414.html

Despite the belligerent public tone in US-Syrian relations under the Bush administration, the government of Bashir al-Assad, the Syrian president, quietly provided the US with occasional intelligence and help along its hundreds of miles of shared border with Iraq after the US invasion and occupation.

And in the absence of American leadership, Turkey brokered several rounds of talks between Israel and Syria during the last year of the Bush administration.

But al-Assad's ultimate goal, like his father before him, is to pursue a path of gradual development for Syria that maintains rather than threatens his regime's hold on power.

Although improbable, the right combination of carrots and sticks by the US could put Syria in a position to reconsider its strategic positioning in the same way that Libya has done in the last few years, especially if Washington's relationship with Tehran becomes increasingly belligerent and the Syrian government fears being caught in the perilous cross-fire of a major US/Israeli-Iranian confrontation.

Yes I did read it, I also spent many years working with these folks overseas. My wife was working on kibutz kinneret in northern Israel in 1973 when the Yom Kippur war broke out and was nearly killed more than once. So I understand a bit about this area from experience. Benjamin Netanyahu will never give up the Golan. Syria and Iran may have differences but they share a strong common bond...the destruction of Israel. Assad/Syria are and will always be in some shape or form State Sponsors of Terrorism. By the way Libya's "change in position" started from Reagan blowing the crap out of Kadafi's neighborhood and Kadafi getting caught with his hand in the Lockerbie pie.

Joseph Rice For President
Of
The United States Of America
In 2012


-----YES!!!! I want to be YOUR next U.S. President in 2012. I am NOT a "Republican" nor "Democrat". I'm a "Middle Class Citizen" and We need a change from the type of governments We've had in the past. As a representative of the average middle class American Citizen, WE The People of the United States of America need a CHANGE from the Democratic and Republicans EMPTY promises. We need someone who knows what it feels like to be a middle class citizen. We need a person who wants to truly help out the middle class American Citizen, not just sugar coat Our Countries problems to bribe them to get elected, but actually go and solve the problems this country faces, cause thats how Americas going to survive.
"Lets Save America First"

-----We need a LEADER who will take care of Our Country first. Not squander Our hard earned money they collected from Our taxes to help out foriegn countries. We have millions of starving and homeless people in Our own great country, however Our Presidents past and present place funding to the people and places of other countries first before helping out the United States Citizens here at home instead. They supply foriegn countries with Billions and Billions of dollars in Financial Aid, while Millions and Millions of United States Citizens face poverty everyday right here at home. I say this has to end. ( I'M SOLD !!!) :tt03:
"Lets Save America First"

-----We need to insure that EVERY single American Citizen gets the proper health care that They need and deserve. Not to be turned away to suffer the horrible results of a severe illness or even face death because no one cares. To ensure proper natal care for Our unborn and newly born U.S. Citizens, as They deserve to be taken care of, not treated like they don't exist or don't have a voice. We are all Americans, and part of the GREATEST nation in the world. And its about time We took care of who made Our country great to begin with, and that is every single Citizen of the United States of America.
"Lets Save America First"

-----We are not the Police Dept of the world. We need to make sure that We have every single American Citizen - Civilian and Military - safely back on American soil where They belong, and out of the needless and thoughtless harms way. We need to reinforce the American Family values, not have Our Loved ones half way around the world in a country that doesnt want Us there nor do We belong being in to begin with.
"Lets Save America First"

-----Former President Bush designed and got passed a Stimulus Package to supposedly help out ALL American Citizen who paid taxes for the year 2007. It was designed to help get Our economy sorta moving again. Well that was WAY to LITTLE and WAY to LATE. I believe to stimlate Our Economy We must first stop the needless throwing away of the American Peoples money to foriegn nations and instead use it here in America first. We have given Iraq and other countries billions of dollars to help get their economies back on track. Well instead of doing that, if We took and gave every single American Citizens income a boost. And I mean a serious boost. Then We could and should design a one time plan to stimulate Our Economy by sending out one time payments to Every single American Citizen who pays taxes for the year 2011 a $2,500 check. To every American Married couple a check of $5,000. And for every child or dependant that was claimed and a additional $1,000. Now this will stimulate Our Economy. But again I must stress that this would be a one time event.
"Let's Save America First"

-----As Americans We want to get back to where and when Our country was strong and financially fit. Well this can be done, but will take alot of co-operation from the failing financial institutions and auto makers. We will need them to step up to the plate to make this work. What We would need from them since they all want financial aid, is to get them to erase the outstanding debts that the american public (starting with the lower mid class and working up the ladder) has created. For every debt and dollar they remove, the U.S. Government will give them that much financial aid. What this does is gives some relief to the citizens who were in debt to these big businesses. It now gives the financial institutions and auto makers financial capital to work from so that they can now start giving out loans and credit again. Now this with what I have stated about a Stimulus Package above, would indeed get the economy going again. But we all must co-operate
"Let's Save America First"

-----The Death Penalty: We as Americans need to feel safe. We need to be able to feel that We can walk done the street without wondering who is behind or around the next corner. Our Prisons have become a revolving door for criminals, and needs to be stopped. The 3 Strike Rule needs to be re-vamped and followed. As for the hardened criminals but mainly focused towards those who have committed Murder. Well I beleive that the punishment should fit the crime. I know it sounds harsh, but We spend millions of dollars on the expense to house and feed those who would kill Us if they had a chance. Thats not fair for society. Death Row should be cleaned up and removed. Murderers should be sentenced to death and that sentence should be carried out immediately. Of course there are areas of accidental deaths, and those should be dealt with on a case to case status. Capital Punishment is NOT a pleasant thing but it would definately lower the ammount of crime We have now.
"Lets Save America First"

-----More Coming Soon!!!
