  Throwing good money after bad. The Pali's have yet to live up to a singe agreement that they have entered into.
Bush Plans to Give More to Palestinians - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON - The
Palestinian Authority could receive more direct aid from the United States, a Bush administration official and congressional aides said Wednesday ahead of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' meeting with President Bush.

Abbas is hoping Bush will reaffirm his commitment to the internationally backed road map peace plan for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and creating a Palestinian state. Abbas is concerned that U.S. support for Israel's unilateral plan to withdraw from Gaza has diverted attention from the road map.

On Wednesday, the Palestinian leader sought support on Capitol Hill, hoping to convince lawmakers that he was serious about democracy, peace, and reform.

Congress has approved $275 million in Palestinian aid for this year and is considering Bush's request for an additional $150 million. But Palestinian officials have complained the aid packages divert money into the hands of third parties, are loaded with restrictions, and give little direct aid to the government.

Some members of Congress have cited years of Palestinian government corruption as the reason for requiring third-party involvement."
