Tip of the hat: Spero News
According to various news reports, Congressional budget investigators found that some $770 million in funding from the US Agency on International Development, which is directed by the State Department, went to rebuild the sewer system in Cairo and to restore mosques and other religious structures in the Muslim-dominated country.
In a statement, the Thomas More Law Center – an advocacy organization based in MIchigan – took the US government to task for allowing funds to reach Muslim religious leaders. “While Americans are being crushed by a devastating recession, hundreds of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are being spent to refurbish mosques overseas. Many of these mosques are hotbeds of Islamic terrorism. Astonishingly, the State Department has provided computer equipment and internet access to local imams, which will enable them to incite terrorism online as exemplified by radical Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.”
My comment: If we expect this public policy to build good relations with terrorists to work as well as the Land for Peace policy “we” have forced Israel to follow, well, all I can say is, “Stupid is as stupid does….”
