“Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.”

Proverbs 41:10 (The Israel Bible™)

(SOURCE)   The Obama Administration reportedly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in its final hours in power, giving last-minute notice to Congress on Friday morning in order to complete the transaction without opposition.

Congress originally earmarked the funds for the PA in 2015 and 2016, but holds placed on the transfer by two GOP lawmakers, who stopped the payments over Palestinian efforts to gain membership to international bodies, had kept the money out of the PA’s hands.

Defying the holds, which are not legally binding but are usually respected by the executive branch, the Obama Administration used its last hours to quietly send the millions to the Palestinians.

Notification of the spending, dated January 20, was given to Congress just a few hours before Donald Trump’s inauguration – making it extremely unlikely that any lawmaker would be able to stop the move.

According  to the notice, the money is to be used for humanitarian aid in the West Bank and Gaza, though aid money given to the Palestinians is known to be often diverted towards funding terrorism, Hamas, and the pockets of Palestinians officials.

The outgoing administration was considered by many to be hostile towards Israel, making its decision to use its very last moments in power to help the Palestinians an unsurprising one.

      Thanks for you comment Jim!

      Apparently Obama did this at the last moment of his presidency and there was no way Congress had enough time to do anything about it!

      God bless!

    Hey brother, good job on the articles. I wrote to let you know that as a follower of Christ I have been contending in spiritual warfare against the ruling principalities of Egypt that are in possession of Obama. Therefore, I never considered Obama as a friend to Israel much less to the US and the Jews and also Christians.  There is a satanic womb embedded in his soul to bring about the anti-Christ which I strongly believe he may well be the one to stand in the Temple at Jerusalem self proclaiming to be God himself.  Remain a strong Remnant of the Lord all the way!

      Thanks for your comment Maxsy Jimenez!

      Thank you for your encouragement!

      I do believe that Obama has the spirit of antichrist about him, as far as Obama being the Antichrist? I don’t believe that I will be around to see it happen, as I believe that the church will be raptured out of here first!

      God bless!

    It is going to be fun to watch President Trump undo some of the carnage that President Obama has inflicted upon our Nation, and the world.God bless and guide President Trump.

      Thank you Anonymous!

      It’s already been fun watching President Trump undo some of the executive orders which Obama signed into action! But that is only the beginning, there has been so much damage done by Obama that it will take a while to reverse much of it. However, Trump is a very smart man, much more intelligent then most people give him credit for. President Donald J. Trump is a follower of God Almighty and God is on his side guiding him, leading him, and protecting him!

      We must continue in prayer for our President, pray for his protection, pray for the good Lord to give him wisdom and insight, courage and strength, and the willingness and ability to carry through with God’s will! Amen.

      God bless! Maranatha!
