There is no reason in the world to hand over money to your enemies who then use it as an award for those who murder your citizens…
My buddy, Kay Wilson, was at the other end of a terrorist’s knife, repeatedly stabbed and left for dead. I know for a fact that she’s outraged over the UK’s handling of funds vis-a-vis the ‘paleostinian’ authority, which doles out the money it receives to terrorists and their family members. This needs to change.
Law to pressure Palestinian Authority advances
Knesset committee approves first reading of law to deduct terrorists’ salaries from money transferred to Palestinian Authority.
The Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Wednesday unanimously approved a bill submitted by MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) to deduct terrorists’ salaries from the money Israel transfers to the Palestinian Authority (PA).
The law will deduct not only money which the PA pays directly to the terrorists, but money which any representative of the PA, including but not limited to the Palestine Liberation Organization, gives to terrorists. The definition of “terrorist” and “terror activity” will be broadened, and the Defense Minister will be free to choose the sources for his reports.
The Committee also clarified that the deduction will be from the monies transferred to the PA in the year following the report.
MK Avi Dichter (Likud), who serves as the Committee chairman and is one of the signatories of the bill, said “As long as the Palesitnian Authority is paying for terror, and as long as the money paid is transferred through us, we in the Knesset and the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee cannot ignore it. We will not be a pipeline for transferring terror money.”
