Obama Sent $221 Million to Palestinians in Last Hours

from the NY Times:

Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

A State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning.

The official said former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday. The aides said written notification dated Jan. 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of office.

      The hearts (decisions) of Kings are in the hands/control of Hashem.

      Throughout his malchus/nesius (presidency) Obama was a pawn in the hands of Hashem and could not lift a finger without approval of HKB”H.

      However, now he regained his bchira chofshis and with free-will he can choose to do good or evil.

      Therefore, we see his “true colors” at the end of his kingship/presidency.

      If so, this new bechira didn’t start until noon on Friday, so this decision was made while he was still in his bechira-less state, and thus shows nothing about his “true colors”.

      On a person’s “final day” – the authority already wanes from the start of the day. There are numerous examples similar in Shas and poskim – ve’ain kan mekomo.

    He isn’t unique in this. Money has been released the the PA for decades. I don’t think it would matter but the PA gives the money to Fattah and Hamas. :( (Obviously terrible for us and even the palestinian civillians., some of who may not even want the terrorists in power. )
    But seriously, Obama isn’t unique in this at all. It’s been conflagrated becaue of the timing.

      The point is that he held off on releasing the money all this time, because it was politically convenient for him to respect the hold. The moment he had no more political reason to hold the money, he released it, just to spite the Republicans.
