UAE Red Crescent Aided Kin of Palestinian Militants

From UAE Red Crescent Aided Kin of Palestinian Militants:

In the past four years the United Arab Emirates has provided substantial financial support, through its Red Crescent Society, to families of Palestinians, militants as well as civilians, who have been wounded or killed by Israeli forces, according to Red Crescent documents.

In 2002, the UAE Friends Society in Jerusalem, the local branch of the Red Crescent, designated $100,000 to pay 50 annual stipends of $2,000 under a “martyrs’ families sponsorship” program.

U.S. officials say payments to families of violent militants constitute direct support for their cause and encourage others to join.
