U.S. Talks Tough on Gaza Aid

Limits on Distribution of $300 Million Suggest Administration Is Hewing to Bush-Era Stance

SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt, March 1 -- The United States on Monday will pledge $300 million in humanitarian relief for people in Gaza after the 22-day war with Israel but will maintain restrictions to prevent any assistance from reaching Hamas, State Department spokesman Robert A. Wood said.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, attending an international conference here to raise funds for the Gaza Strip, will also announce $600 million in assistance to the Palestinian Authority, which is controlled by Fatah, a rival of Hamas that is dominant in the West Bank.

Unfortunately this money will only be used to wipe the Jewish state of Israel off the face of the planet!!!
