Condi Pledges $770 Million Jizya for Lebanon, 2000% Increase

Does it warm your heart to know that we cannot afford to defend our borders, let alone build a fence, but have no problem spending billions in jizya to Muslims who are rude to our face, and busily stab us when we turn? What fools and dhimmis run this country, or is that ruin this country? WE are going to pay for rebuilding their country for a war started by a terrorist organization that is part of their government. Why don't we give HAMAS jizya too? Let the jizya flow, bleed the infidels dry Condi! I really don't know what to say. It is stupidity with a capital 'S.'

PARIS (AP) — The United States will pledge almost $770 million to help rebuild Lebanon and support its fragile government, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday.
The money is more than three times as much as last year's U.S. pledge, reflecting Lebanon's rebuilding needs after a 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah militants and the perilous condition of the Western-backed government in Beirut.

Rice told reporters flying with her that the money will be part of international pledges that analysts have said will total $5 billion at a conference starting in Paris on Thursday.

Much of the U.S. money comes with strings attached. The government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora will get the money only as it meets standards for political and financial reform.

The money, which must be approved by Congress, also contains funds for spare parts, small arms and other military hardware. The administration will request the funds in a bill President Bush will propose.

Last year's pledge for Lebanon was $230 million. Before that, U.S. aid to Lebanon ranged $30 million to $40 million per year.
