This Ongoing War..
27 March '16..
For years, the scandalous funding of Palestinian Arab terrorism by European politicians has been one of the main enablers of the huge human price paid by its victims. Since the murder of our daughter and the growing realization that her killers and their support network are major beneficiaries of this insane abuse of power, we have done what ordinary people can do: write and talk about it, try to raise awareness and give a hand to others doing it more effectively than we can.
The sad reality is that the madness continues right up until this morning, and is going to continue until political leaders feel the pain - in the customary political way - of doing immoral things that other people, usually unwittingly, are paying for.
At one of the world's largest-circulating newspapers, they published a major story today (Sunday) which is central to a public campaign of their creating. They introduce it today in these words:
The scandal of how Britain fritters away billions in foreign aid – including paying salaries to convicted terrorists who have murdered hundreds of innocent people – is exposed today by a major MoS investigation. The shocking revelation that thousands of Palestinian terrorists, including men who have masterminded suicide bombings and murdered children, are given cash handouts from aid money will cause anger and disbelief, particularly in the wake of the Brussels massacres. Our probe exposed how huge amounts of taxpayers’ cash, that critics say should be spent in Britain, is being ‘squandered’ on wasteful schemes elsewhere by the Department For International Development (DFID) and Foreign Office. Despite claims of astonishing waste, the Government maintains a dogged adherence to the commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of the nation’s income on foreign aid – the highest proportion of any of the world’s major economies – even though last year it had to borrow £70 billion.
