The United States has released $40 million in foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority, CBN News reports. The $40 million amounts to about 20 percent of the $187 million in funds from fiscal year 2011 that was frozen in response to the PA's bid for statehood at the United Nations last September; the Obama administration is urging Congress to release the rest. According to the Associated Press, the administration has requested that Congress allocate nearly $546 million to the Palestinian Authority in the new fiscal year.
