AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS SQUANDERED BY PALESTINIAN DEMOGRAPHY

Earlier today, I suggested that Israel's supposed demographic problem is based on inflated numbers of 'Palestinians.' Now, Yoram Ettinger suggests another consequence to Palestinian census fraud besides Israeli foreign policy: inflated US foreign aid.

Ettinger argues that US foreign aid is calculated on a per capita basis. Annual US foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority and to International organizations, which support Palestinians, has been based - since 1997 - on a more than 50% inflated number of Palestinians. Shouldn’t US foreign aid be reduced accordingly?

Ettinger then reviews the highlights given in my previous post on this subject and then concludes:
