Obama Signs Executive Order Presidential Determination Allowing Palestinians Loyal to Hamas to Resettle In US

President Barack Obama has signed an executive order presidential determination allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to resettle in the United States. Sure, what can go wrong when we allow hundreds of thousands of people who have been, as Mark Steyn memorably described, "marinated" in a "sick death cult," who voted for Hamas, and 55% of whom support suicide bombings live here and at the American taxpayers' expense:

By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in migration assistance to the Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

The "presidential determination" which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on February 4.

President Obama's decision, according to the Register, was necessitated by "the urgent refugee and migration needs" of the "victims."

Few on Capitol Hill took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

Let's review some of Barack Obama's most recent actions since he was inaugurated a little more than two weeks ago:

  • His first call to any head of state as president was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
  • His first one on one interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
  • He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
  • He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
  • He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11.
  • Today we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to and live in the US at American taxpayer expense.

Anyone else seeing a pattern here?

Update: Here's the link to the "presidential determination" and the portion that is important:

[I]t is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.

And what does the US Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State do?

The State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) provides aid and sustainable solutions for refugees, victims of conflict and stateless people around the world, through repatriation, local integration, and resettlement in the United States.

Update II: Anchoress emailed to say that President Bush signed a similar determination in 2007, which, as Bookworm notes, is a bad idea when any president invites Palestinians to the US. Obama's determination, to me, is unnerving now that Obama is turning back the war on terror, closing CIA interrogation centers, closing Gitmo, and withdrawing charges against Cole and 9/11 masterminds, sending the message that he is lowering his guard regarding terrorism. Let's hope those who are sympathetic to Hamas don't take him up on his offer.

Now, because Barack Hussein Obama's EO contains an order to provide funds for the "Migration Assistance Fund" it does raise the question of just where, or if these people will migrate and where.

Obama is our President. The people elected him. I don't know why some of you seem to think he's some sort of Manchurian candidate, but he's not.

We're in the worst economic situation our nation has experienced since the great(?) depression, and Obama is spending $20.3 million on the Gazans? How about directly helping Americans who have lost their homes, or their jobs? Or our returning vets, many who have already exhibited signs of PTSD? How much money has Saudi Arabia, or Iraq (before we tried to "democratize" them), or Dubai, or Iran -- all oil producing states -- spent on "the poor Palestinians"? The answer is zero! The Palestinians? Most will join the thousands now living in the United States, and will join the hundreds of Hamas cells all ovrer the nation. For those that will say "most Palestinians are peaceful", my answer is "yes, but they are irrelevaht, since none have ever voiced their opposition to Hamas. Not in Europe, not in the United States.

Jaka Mon:

Everyone in Gaza is a loyal member of Hamas because Hamas won the election in Jan 2006.

So that means everyone in America is now a loyal Democrat because Obama won the last election. Thats a bit extreme, isnt it?

Hamas was in control of Gaza in May 2007, when President BUSH signed the VERY SAME executive order, authorizing $29.5 million, 50% more than the $20 million authorized by Obama, to resettle refugees, or according to this email, 'people Loyal to Hamas' here in America.

(Federal Registry entry 2007-19)
Quote: "Presidential Determination No. 2007-19 of May 10, 2007 -- Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs Related to Somalia, Sudan, Chad, Other Parts of Africa, and the West Bank and Gaza." which authorized 29.5 million to migrate (or as this email prefers - relocate) those same Hamas governed refugees (aka "Hamas loyalists") to America.
See: http://www.scribd.com/doc/2775364/Administrative-Order-Migration-and-Refugee-Assistance-Act-of-1962-availability-of-funds-Presidential-Determination-No-200719-of-May-10-2007

Where was the alarmist hype over Bush's executive order?
How is Obama's executive order any different from Bush's?

The Arab press, on the day of Hamas victory in Jan 2006, did not credit Hamas for their victory as much as noted their victory was the result of the people being fed up with and wanting to throw out their current, very corrupt Fatah government (which is pretty much Arafat's old Mob, and I mean Mob in every sense of the word). Even George Bush knew not everyone in Gaza is a 'Hamas loyalist', just because they threw out the Fatah.

And they will be screened by Israel - they all have to be processed thru Israel before they can come here. I suspect they have a pretty good handle on who is and who is not a threat to us. I dont recall hearing of any Hamas attacks here in the US as a result of Bush's even bigger migration of all those people who were also "marinated" in a "sick death cult".

Most of the people of Gaza are victims of the actions of a relative few hateful extremists. Most want to be left alone and live in peace, just like us.

the policies of the past have gotten us into this mess,should we keep those or try another path ? sometimes we have to fail before we can succeed....or maybe with support of americans he can get it right-not blind support -like the bush days. Call me a liberal all u want -websters has the correct definition of what that means-not the slur it has incurred.
anyone interpreting what Obama signed as letting hamas loving palestinians into this country - needs to get an understanding of the facts ,laws of immigration, & a better education.

It is money for humanitarian aid of the kind America has always done. Food, Health care, water, shelter, security etc. Kind of like what we did at home when Katrina made a million US citizens refugees. We helped put roofs over their heads and food on the table.

I suppose just using common sense - to come to the forgone conclusion that if you let into our country those very same people, bred on hate, who day by day chant "Death to America," who passed candies and danced for joy on the streets of Gaza on 9/11 celebrating the massacre at the fallen Twin Towers, and who strap their sons and daughters with explosives and make of them suicide bombers who murder innocent bystanders (many of them Muslims) in order to kill if but one more "hated" American and or Jew, that in fact we would be giving them the opportunity to infiltrate us to carry out on American soil those very same "lofty" and "humane" Islamic activities - is simply out of the question for Obama, the Obamaloonies, and the far left!

Only deluded, braimwashed, proto-commie, secular-progressive, liberal "lemmings," hell-bent on the self-destruction of America, could find fault with the self-evident logic of the argument of not letting these extremely potentially dangerous people, 55% of whom openly support suicide bombings, into the country, especially using as an argument for their admission a "distress" which has been mostly of their own, barbaric, hatemongering, intransigent, creation!

Obviously Obama, and his loons, are just more of the same Jihadist-loving, multi-culturalist

Michael:

This story is not accurate.

This Executive Order allocates $20.3 million to help people in Gaza displaced by the recent war, spending the funds indirectly, through NGOs, United Nations and others. Internally, within Gaza. I know a little bit about this, because I've dealt with the refugee office at State referenced by this Order, and with its counterpart at the UN, the UNHCR:

http://www.state.gov/g/prm/

The accurate detail of what the funds are actually for is here:

http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2009/01/115587.htm --

The Palestinians are not leaving. They don't have passports and Israel won't let them out, neither will Egypt. They're not coming to America.

By the way, this action is completely consistent with US policy; we help refugees all over the world. Bush did it; he already sent some bigtime aid to the Palestinians before Christmas. After the Lebanon action, US money poured into southern Lebanon to help refugees. Was this judged to be aid to Hezbollah, Syria and Iran?

Some people will continue this reflexive defamation against Obama, regardless. And we know exactly why.

Quote: "This Executive Order allocates $20.3 million to help people in Gaza displaced by the recent war, spending the funds indirectly, through NGOs, United Nations and others. Internally, within Gaza."

"Viva la differance!" It makes all the difference in the world that instead of allowing the Palestinians to come to the USA to, carry out suicide bombings and fire Kassam rockets on our own soil, we are simply making sure they are well fed enough so that they can continue to carry out suicide bombings and fire Kassam rockets in and at Israel.

"[...]Bush did it; he already sent some bigtime aid to the Palestinians before Christmas."

One has to wonder if the candies the Palestinians were passing around in glee as they danced in the streets for joy at the fall of the Twin Towers and the murder of almost three thousand innocent victims on 9/11 were also part of "aid" they had received, similar to that Bush sent them just before Christmas!


"[...] Was this judged to be aid to Hezbollah, Syria and Iran?"

I am sure that at least it freed money that the Palestinians would otherwise have had to spend on food, for their own survival, to buy more important things... such as weapons, explosives, and more Kassam rockets!

"[...]Some people will continue this reflexive defamation against Obama, regardless. And we know exactly why."

Let me guess, it's not because Obama is a terrorist-sympathizing socialist, oh no... but because he's a "ni**er," right???

"Hamas 'Happy' With Obama's $900 Million Pledge
Funds Earmarked For U.N. Agency That Openly Employs Terrorists"

By Aaron Klein
© 2009 WorldNetDaily

TEL AVIV, Israel - Hamas is "very happy" with a pledge this week from the Obama administration to provide $900 million in aid for rebuilding the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, a spokesman from the Islamist organization told WND.

"We are very happy with this decision," said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum, speaking by cell phone from Gaza. "In the first place, this money will go toward reconstructing efforts."

Barhoum said he expects the money to be tightly controlled. He said the funds are likely to be delineated to the Palestinian Authority and to the United Nations Relief and Work Agency, or UNWRA, which administers aid to millions of Palestinian "refugees" in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

Hamas has a close relationship with UNWRA; the agency openly employs a large number of Hamas members, including some of the group's most senior terrorists

* He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.

* He ordered all overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.

* He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and 9/11.

Yes there is a pattern here! The pattern of such as your deluded leftist ilk not being able to abide the least dissent or criticism of your swarthy, Marxist, Obama ni**er who is hell-bent in destroying this nation!

I see a pattern of increasing censoring of our First Amendment rights, and a sinister effort to silence all opposition to the "Obamamessiah"!

Giving aid to the Palestinians, and or harboring them in our country, is tantamount to perpetuating murderous Hamas and the terrorism against Israel and America. Do you think those $900 millions are going to be spent on hungry widows and children (widows who will then make of their children suicide bombers), or are isn't it most likely a good chunk of it will only pay for more supplies and infrastructure in Gaza to further the "Palestinian Kazzzam Rocketry Club"?!?!

When blogging, for the sake of expediency, sometimes people try to get to the point without having to cite every source and quote (lest the black "Proletariat" in the slums be bored with so much pedantic recitation of facts?). All Kim was doing was to get the point across. You want "PLAGIARISM"??? Ask our dumbass foot-in-the-mouth VP Joe Biden!

The reality is that while Americans at home are being evicted unto the streets, and many of us have to eat $0.16 Maruchan soups and or $0.33 Kroger Mac and Cheese in order to feed ourselves and our families, this Obama administration is giving almost a "BILLION" dollars to the murderous son-of-bitches who danced for joy on the streets of Gaza celebrating the killing of almost three thousand innocent people on 9/11 and passing candy around - no doubt paid with some more of the "humanitarian aid" they have received in the past!

"U.S. to Pump $900 Million into PA"
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday pledged $900 million in aid to the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority, including $300 million for rebuilding Hamas-controlled Gaza.

Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu has warned foreign leaders not to invest in Gaza while Hamas still attacks Israel with rockets and bombs at the separation barrier, however. Secretary Clinton maintained that the aid will flow on the condition the condition that none of it would reach Hamas despite a long history of Hamas putting its hands on foreign money, weapons and United Nations humanitarian aid.

"We have worked with the Palestinian Authority to install safeguards that will ensure our funding is only used where and for whom it is intended and does not end up in the wrong hands," Clinton said at the international donors' conference in Sharm el-Sheikh.

However, facts in the field indicate that it is virtually impossible to separate aid in Gaza from Hamas, which wrested control of the region from the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority nearly two years ago.

An Israeli newspaper reported Monday that it obtained a Palestinian document proving that PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad spent 90 million shekels ($21.5 million) for rebuilding Gaza with tax revenues that Israel had transferred with the understanding they would be earmarked for salaries of PA employees.

Hamas directly received the funds, none of which were deposited in workers' accounts in Gaza banks, according to the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharonot. Fayyad had claimed that he needed the funds urgently to cover salaries, but a large portion of the money was used instead to rebuild Gaza homes and mosques, some of which have been used by Hamas as weapons storage depots.

Earlier this year, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) admitted that Hamas had commandeered convoys of aid destined for its warehouses. Weapons that the United States and other countries have supplied the past several years to Fatah leader and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas also have found their way into Hamas hands and have been used in terrorist attacks against Israelis.

Channel One TV News journalist Ayala Hasson told viewers on the Mabat news program last week, "If that funding does not wind up in Hamas terror coffers, then I am a circus ballerina."

In addition, journalist David Bedein noted that according to study conducted by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), the PA is bound by the "Mecca Agreement" of 2007 to fund the Hamas regime, including the growing army of the terrorist group, which is outlawed by the United States.

He suggested that the Obama administration could be accused of having violated American law if any of the aid winds up in Hamas's hands. Last year, an American citizen was sentenced to prison for providing $20,000 for humanitarian aid to Hamas.

PA: A Welfare State

Secretary Clinton's aid package follows billions of dollars donated in the past by the U.S. and European Union (EU) countries to the extend that the World Bank has warned that the PA is becoming a welfare state.

In a report filed last summer, The World Bank concluded that billions of dollars in foreign aid has enabled the PA to inflate its public payroll while its education system continues to incite violence against Israel.

Approximately 160,000 public servants are on the PA payroll, requiring almost $2 billion a year to cover salaries, and part of Secretary Clinton's pledge of assistance is earmarked for them.

The domestic output of the PA economy has actually dropped by 30 percent on a per capita basis since 1999, one year before the Oslo War, also known as the Second Intifada, broke out.

A Middle East Quarterly essay written by Steven Stotsky, a senior research analyst for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), stated that donor conferences for increased aid to the PA ignore the issue of terror. "Perhaps aid itself does not cause violence, but there is strong evidence that it contributes to a culture of corruption, government malfeasance, and terrorism that has had lethal consequences for both Israelis and Palestinians over the past decade," he wrote.

He noted that almost all of the foreign aid before the Oslo War was directed to economic and infrastructure development programs. The escalated terror campaign since 2000 cut employees' wages and PA tax revenues, leaving the PA more and more dependent on foreign aid.

"In a classic example of the creation of perverse incentives, the decision to fund the government budget made the Palestinian Authority less dependent on revenue derived from commerce, detaching the PA's solvency from the health of the economy," wrote Stotsky. "Thus, while the intifada sent the Palestinian economy into free fall, the PA's coffers swelled. The conditions were thus established that ensured the separation of Palestinian governance from responsibility for the economic health of the Palestinian people.

"Not only did the security forces fail to prevent terrorist attacks, in many cases they colluded with terrorist groups and sometimes perpetrated attacks themselves."

The economy in the region was growing until 2000 when lethal suicide bombings and rocket and mortar attacks on Jewish communities in the Gaza region forced Jewish farmers to stop the employment of Arab workers.


To be blunt, after sixty years of being indoctrinated in their culture of death and hatred - where young children in Palestinian schools are every day taught to hate Israel, America, and the Jews, and encouraged to become "martyrs" - like a dog with rabies, the only realistic solution is to put them down, and exterminate them all off the face of the earth, no matter how horrific this may sound to all of you deluded "rabid dog advocates"!

But I'm wasting my time, and as Doris Day used to sing: "Que Sera. Sera" - What will be, will be. And all you bleeding-heart Islamist terrorist enablers will only wake up to reality amidst the rubble of an atomic dirty bomb set off by one of your "beloved" murderous Palestinians in one of our cities!

Just make it sure that the Hamas Refugees will be kept inside the White House for everyone to see.

San Francisco or New York City or anywhere in Vermont will be a good alternative settlement.

To all Red States, never allow yourself to be the cudgel of this fiasco.
