Ah….even if they promise not to directly use Norwegian aid money, the money sent frees up money elsewhere to fund these jackals.
A source tells me:
Yesterday the Norwegian foreign minister, Brende, met with Abbas in Ramallah. He told Abbas that the payment to the prisoners is unacceptable and should stop. Abbas repeated that it is not Norwegian money that is used to fund this. Brende agreed with this, but said that PA should stop the payments, «for their own good».
– The support program for prisoners is unacceptable
Faced with Mahmoud Abbas stressed Norway’s foreign minister that the current aid scheme for prisoners should be abolished.
Foreign Minister Brende (H) is on a new tour of the Middle East. Tuesday afternoon and evening he had first talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and then Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
On the agenda for the meeting with Abbas stood including the extensive support programs for imprisoned Palestinians. For years, Palestinian Authority (PA) paid wages to terrorist sentenced Palestinians, and the worse the deed, the more money they get.
