USAID funding Israel's apartheid road construction


electronicintifada.net

The construction of sections of a controversial segregated road network in the West Bank planned by Israel for Palestinians -- leaving the main roads for exclusive use by settlers -- is being financed by a US government aid agency, a map prepared by Palestinian researchers has revealed.

USAID, which funds development projects in Palestinian areas, is reported to have helped to build 114 kilometers of Israeli-proposed roads, despite a pledge from Washington six years ago that it would not assist in implementing what has been widely described as Israel's "apartheid road" plan.

Hardly surprising really. USAID have been involved in many shady constructions and policy initatives abroad.

Back to this building of roads for the Palestinians. Washington under Bush had promised not to involve themselves in the building of these roads which are widely seen as 'apartheid' roads by both the U.S. and majority of the international community. But 23 % of these roads have been built with USAID money.

U.S. hypocrisy in regards to Israel and the Palestinians knows no bounds.

Are members just so unsurprised by this that there is nothing to say? I don't blame you to be honest.

One week you think the U.S. may actually start to seriously pressure the Israelis into showing the Palestinians some respect and care, then you read something like this.

Well, I got something to add:

# Israel.

And with that said, there isn't much else to be said. I mean, until someone comes in here blindly defending our actions and Israel's actions.

Yep fair enough.

A lot of the Israeli defenders who are members of this site seem to have dissapeared as of late. Mabye even they are turning against the state under Netanyahu's nutter coalition?

The story is more focused on the U.S. role in isolating and humiliating the Palestinians by making them use different roads to the settlers of the illegal settlements in the West Bank.

No it is not really shocking i aggre, in particular as that god awful institution USAID is involved.

USAID in Peru, 2000.


Early this week Congressmen Todd Tiahrt (R-4-KS) and Christopher Smith (R-4-NJ) called upon USAID to investigate its "family planning" projects in Peru which appear to be in violation of US law. This request was based on testimony obtained by PRI in Peru from women who say they were pressured or bribed into undergoing sterilization or contracepting with IUDs, Depo-Provera, and birth control pills.

A special hearing on USAID activities has been called by the House Appropriations Foreign Operations subcommittee on USAID for Wednesday 22 March 2000 by the Chairman of that subcommittee, Sonny Callaha
