When you say

"Palestinian".. you are talking about a HUGE area that includes "Trans Egypt (Gaza), Trans-Jordan (West Bank) and pockets of refugees scattered throughout the ME. It is so very unfair what is happening to these people, and it's not Israel, which gets blamed especially through RT (Russia) and Press TV (Iranian), but rather the inept UN it's corruption, beit US installed leaders, or their own political, military/police/security/intel and religious leaders (least we forget business and bankers).

Much of the money that goes to places like Palestine never reaches the people, but rather buys luxury for the current occupants of the offices.

To answer your questions:

Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the
mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed approximately $5 billion in bilateral assistance to
the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign
aid. Successive Administrations have requested aid for the Palestinians in apparent support of at
least three major U.S. policy priorities of interest to Congress:
• Preventing terrorism against Israel from Hamas and other militant organizations.
• Fostering stability, prosperity, and self-governance in the West Bank that inclines
Palestinians toward peaceful coexistence with Israel and a “two-state solution.”
• Meeting humanitarian needs.
Since June 2007, these U.S. policy priorities have crystallized around the factional and
geographical split between the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank and Hamas
in the Gaza Strip. Through its provision of aid to the Palestinians, the United States faces
challenges in bolstering PA leaders in the West Bank without compromising their domestic
popular appeal or encouraging authoritarian behavior. Longtime PA Prime Minister Salam
Fayyad, who was praised by many Western officials—including several Members of Congress—
as a champion of reform and transparency, resigned in April 2013. Fayyad was replaced by a
government that may be more sensitive to the preferences of PA President Mahmoud Abbas than
those of international donors. Congress and the Obama Administration also face challenges in
addressing humanitarian needs in Gaza while monitoring the status of Hamas’s rule
