Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Thursday urged visiting US Congresswoman Nita Lowey to ensure that the additional funds the United States is transferring to the Palestinians do not reach Hamas or other terrorist groups. "We cannot allow these funds to reach the hands of the terrorists," Ayalon told the chairwoman of the US House of Representatives Appropriation Subcommittee. "This is vital." During the meeting, Ayalon also thanked Lowey for the extra funding for the Arrow missile project and said, "The United States is Israel's strongest and most important ally."
