WE'RE GOING TO DO WHAT!?! Give money to Terrorists!!!

The NYT is reporting that on SoS Rice's agenda while over in Europe is:

"a plan to enlist Europeans to help persuade Arab countries to increase aid to the Palestinian Authority, for possible use in giving $100 monthly stipends to poor Palestinians and for retirement benefits for perhaps 1,000 members of Palestinian militia groups.

Seattle Times on sunday said: " National Security Council officials suggest a plan to use the untapped $400 million to provide $100-a-month stipends to impoverished Palestinians, in part to combat the appeal of Hamas, which has an effective social-service system. The money would also be used to create a retirement fund for militia members."

World Tribune is saying: "U.S. officials said the administration has offered to pay Palestinian insurgents who agree to surrender their weapons. They said the offer was part of a $350 million assistance package to the Palestinian Authority.

The offer was scheduled to be discussed by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during her visit to Ramallah on Monday. Officials said that under the proposal, the United States would guarantee $100 per month to any insurgent who surrenders his weapon and renounces violence.

WHAT THE F%*#!!!

I thought we didn't "negotiate with terrorists"???

This has got to be one of the dumbest ideas I've heard in a while. Giving money to killers with the belief that they'll stop. Oh Yeah, that'll work, NOT!

Not only will this not work, it's most likely going to backfire on us, and Israel, by pumping money into Terror groups who have a really bad habit of calling for a cease-fire only to come back after they've had enough time to rearm and get a few homicide bomber vest ready!

And wait until the left gets a hold of this, I can only imagine what their reaction is going to be.
