Unfair attacks on "Biden´s humanitarian aid" to the Palestinians

 after the administration of US President Joe Biden announced last week its intention to provide 15 million dollars in humanitarian aid related to confronting the new Corona virus to the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, this was met with accusations by Republican Representative Lee Zeldin, (From New York State), the US administration is "submitting to terrorists," as he put it, and implicitly indicated that aid to the Palestinians "regardless of the amount of money that the United States allocates, violates US law and challenges the will of Congress."

It is noted that the accusation of Zeldin, who is the only Jewish Republican congressman, comes as part of a deliberate effort to distort American law and misrepresent the intentions of Congress, for the purposes of stirring up controversy and stirring up anger over the Biden administration's plans to resume aid to the Palestinians and restore relations with the Palestinians in general.

It is noteworthy that, in addition to Zeldin, members of Congress such as Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) and Republican Congressman Doug Lamborne (Colorado) support that campaign, as well as former Trump administration officials, such as former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and groups Various right-wing extremists such as (Christian United For Israel), the American Center for Law and Justice, and the Jewish Center for Politics.

“These people and groups have the right - of course - to object to US aid to the Palestinians,” says Lara Friedman, director of the Middle East Peace Foundation, “although opposing humanitarian aid during the pandemic is cruel and immoral, but it is clearly wrong. It is said that resuming the aid cut by President Trump violates the law and will of Congress. "

Friedman says: "The goal behind this is false, and seeks to rewrite history to indicate that Congress has blocked all aid to the Palestinians, and for this reason President Trump cut it off, which is not true."
