(Worthy News) - The US military says it is canceling $300 million in aid to Pakistan over what it calls Islamabad's failure to take action against militant groups.

President Donald Trump has previously accused Pakistan of deceiving the US while receiving billions of dollars.

Pentagon spokesman Lt Col Koné Faulkner said the US military would aim to spend the money on other "urgent priorities". [ Source: BBC (Read More...) ]

    Haley tells UNSC Arab leaders 'afraid' to tell Palestinians the truth
    As the Security Council convened to discuss escalating tensions in Gaza, US UN ambassador lashes countries, especially Arab states, for failing to offer more than 'cheap' talk and speeches to contribute to peace between Israel and Palestinians; ‘All they do is get the international community riled up.'

    US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council on Tuesday that the Palestinian leadership “has been allowed to live a false reality for too long because Arab leaders are afraid to tell them the truth.”

    As the Security Council convened to discuss the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the mounting violence on the border with Israel that has threatened to escalate into an all-out war, Haley denounced the international community, particularly members of the Arab state, for failing to improve the lives of Palestinians with actions, and instead offer "vitriol" against Israel and disingenuous support for the Palestinian people.

    “Country after country claims solidarity with the Palestinian people … Talk is cheap. No group of countries is more generous with their words than the Palestinians’ Arab neighbors,” Haley said in her 8-minute address.

    “But all of the words spoken here in New York do not food, cloth or educate a single Palestinian child. All they do is get the international community riled up,” she lamented.

    Citing the example of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), which is facing hefty financial cuts from the US, Haley listed a number of countries which she said have lacked in generosity in supporting the organization.

    “Last year, Iran’s contribution to UNRWA was zero, Algeria’s contribution to UNRWA was zero, Tunisia’s contribution to UNRWA was zero,” Haley said, highlighting a number of other countries such as Pakistan, Egypt, and Jordan whose total contribution had ranged from $20,000 - $668,000.

    “How much have the Arab countries, some of whom are wealthy, how much have they given to the Palestinians? It does not come anywhere close to what the United States has done.”

    I agree with President Trumps' decision.
