İlknur Şebnem Öztemel-TDO-06.08.2017- Foreign Affairs Commission of US Senate agreed on a draft that orders Palestinian government to end giving humanitarian aid to families of prisoners and martyrizes who were victimized by Israeli Army unfairly.
Draft accepted by 17 votes against 4. Committee threatened Palestinian government not to provide economic aid until they stop the flow of aid to families of the victims.
Also the draft named ‘’Taylor Force’’ who was killed in Tel Aviv, call other donator states to block outflow of aid to Palestine too.
Additionally, draft foresee the issue to be talked in UN.
The draft presented by Republican Senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham and Republican Senator from Tennessee, Bob Corker, would go into operation when it would be approved both by the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Palestine’s representative to USA delegation, Husam Zomlot, reminded that the program has been continuing for 52 years and said ‘’ This program is organized to help victims of Israeli aggression and unfair treatment . The program assists our government to fulfill basic needs of our children and save our people from radicalism’’.
American support to Israel is obvious but the problem in here is that Washington’s claims about ‘’being fair’’ on Palestinian issue and even US President Donald Trump’s offers about it. Remember, Trump pointed out his son-in-law, Jared Kushner who is well-known with his donations to illegal Jewish settlements in Palestine, to debate and reach a final agreement between sides on the issue. Now,’’ the big brother’’ and the most passionate supporter of humanitarianism and humanitarian aid, gave up its ‘’bona fides’’ a side.
