Pro-Israeli U.S. Politicians Delay Aid to Palestine

israel_us_flagPalestine’s UN bid for statehood causes pro-Israeli U.S. politicians to delay $200 million in economic aid to Palestinians.

As reported by Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett, the Obama administration is criticizing U.S. politicians using legislative efforts to delay delivery of aid for food, healthcare and infrastructure to Palestinians.

As well, Palestinian officials call the move “counterproductive” to Middle East peace efforts.

Do you feel that U.S. politicians are justified in withholding aid to Palestine based on pro-Israel politics?

How do you feel about the U.S. position as staunch ally to Israel while simultaneously purporting to be an unbiased  mediator between Israel and Palestine?
