1. As @DanielBShapiro notes, this is a hostile act to ... Israel. And of course the Palestinian people. The US is ceding space to #Hamas in #Gaza. No security professional recommends an aid cut off in Gaza - none.
2. To the doubters, those without facts @tanstaaflpnw Read the GAO report on @usaid assistance to the Palestinians. gao.gov/assets/700/693…. @USAIDWBG had the highest level of accountability, results and integrity in @usaid. Clean @USGAO audits are the gold standard.
3. Name other operating units anywhere in the USG where year in and year out IG and @USGAO regularly report clean audits? Fact of the matter @USAIDWBG is the best in the business. @jdgreenblatt45 @USAIDMiddleEast
4. Here is why @DanielBShapiro and I care so much - we literally went to the bomb shelter 80 times in the month of August during the 2014 war. We gave our kids gas masks in 2013 during the Syrian chemical attacks. @Martin_Indyk @robertdanin @ilangoldenberg
5. War and peace between the Israelis and Palestinians isn't theoretical to us. @ALLMEP_usa. We lived it - and worked 24/7 to reduce risk, save lives. This decision also puts into doubt the people to people activities that have changed futures. @Kids4Peace @EcoPeaceME @braunold
6. And, most specifically it accelerates the risk of war and ignores the evidence of trade and economic opportunity in the northern West Bank and elsewhere as a force for stability. @LTCPeterLerner @lrozen @columlynch
7. Bottom line - This administration has empowered #hamas and other rejectionists. Good luck @usembassyjlm @SecPompeo

1. Here is the @USGAO report: @USAID vetted PA creditors to ensure that the program assistance would not provide support to entities or individuals associated w terrorism & also conducted external assessments and financial audits of PA ministries of Health & Finance and Planning.
2. USAID documentation showed that, as required, officials checked the vetting status of each PA creditor within 12 months before USAID signed its debt relief grant agreements with the PA.
3. In addition, although USAID determined that it was not legally required to assess the PA Ministry of Health’s medical referral services and the Ministry of Finance and Planning’s petroleum procurement system, the agency commissioned external assessments of both ministries.
