No American money for Hamas

I had been worried about this, until now. The U.S. gives a lot of money to the Palestinians, and now that their parliament is comprised of terrorists, the flow of cash will change.

From AP:

    LONDON U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday ruled out any American financial aid to a Hamas government in the Palestinian territories and said Washington wants Arab nations and others to cut off money as well.

    Humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, many of whom are poor and unemployed, is likely on a "case-by-case basis," Rice said. She indicated that the Bush administration would follow through on aid promised to the current, U.S.-backed Palestinian government led by President Mahmoud Abbas.
