Mubarak took this money, as well as Jordan's rulers and also Abbas and the PA. This was not something that the people wanted. The Egyptians cast out Mubarak and the Palestinians elected Hamas into power. Israel and America punished the Palestinian people by blockading Gaza and placing severe travel restrictions on west bank Palestinians. As a result, we had Fatah and the PA, supported by Israel and America and their own faction, at odds with Hamas supported by the majoority of Palestinians and their own faction. This factionalism is exactly wjat Israel and America wanted, since this would expend the energy of the Palestinians on fighting among themselves and therefore not with Israel. This is one of many examples of Americans tax dollars supporting Israel's activities which are clearly opposed to international law. We are taling about Israel building communities on occupied land. Almost everything that happens in Israel and regarding Israel is somehow connected to Israel's obsession with taking the Palkestinian land.
