New York Bans Hamas Aid

I've heard in the past about New Yorkers being appeasers, or quite "liberal" when it comes to the question of Islamic terror (compared to most Americans, obviously excluding San Franciscans). Well, I think this article should put some of that myth to rest :

In a rare move, the New York State Assembly on Tuesday unanimously decided that New York State residents will not help the Hamas-led Palestinian government, Israel's leading newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, reported on Wednesday.

The Assembly's 150 members said they view with "contempt" Hamas' victory in the legislative elections "without being asked to denounce terror and recognize Israel's right to exist," and noted that since 2000 Hamas was responsible for 425 terror attacks in which 377 people were killed.

"We support and stand by Israel, in declaring the closest friendship," legislatures said. The Assembly quoted a similar law passed by the Washington State Senate which banned direct assistance to the Palestinian government so long it is calling for the destruction of Israel.

In a gesture of friendship, the Assembly invited Israel Consul-General in New York, Aryeh Mekel, to attend the session which was held in Albany.

A draft of the law will be presented to Mekel who will be asked to submit it to the Israeli government.


Great news! I'm glad.
Sadly, I have just read on LGF the news that "the militant group Hamas was assured that the United Arab Emirates would continue to provide financial aid to the Palestinians under a Hamas-led government."
Let's keep on fighting..


They'll get the money from somewhere, of that there's no doubt. Though why it was ever given by the ones they love to openly propagate to hate, who'll ever know.
