U.S. to transfer $200 million to Palestinians???

I just had to comment on this story from Reuters:

U.S. to transfer $200 million to Palestinians

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States plans to transfer $200 million to the struggling Palestinian Authority to help cover its budget shortfall, an Obama administration official said on Friday.

Oh, good thing we can help out with their budget defecit...<*whisper*>just don't tell California.

One US official was quoted:

"We are trying to help the Palestinians to meet a budget shortfall and also we are trying to create the conditions on the ground so that we can move toward peace negotiations,"

So, basically this is a shakedown to stop terrorism? Hmmm, perhaps our West Coast friends could get some of these funds by throwing a few rocks at Arizona and bombing settlements on the California/Nevada border. Sounds like a plan to me.
