This should not surprise anyone. In a just world the neo-Nazi Palestinian Authority would be shunned by the world, and Mahmoud Abbas and his band of murdering thugs would be in a military prison. The anti-Semitic Democrats love the Palestinian Authority. They want to give this neo-Nazi terrorist group more money and a state.
PA Spent $150 M. on Stipends for Terrorists in 2019, a 3% Increase
By Jewish Press, January 30, 2020:
The Palestinian Authority (PA) spent NIS 517.4 million ($150 m.) in stipends to terrorists and their families in 2019, a rise of NIS 5 million and a 3% increase compared to 2018, a report by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) shows.
The PA’s publicized financial documents show that the PA’s expenditure on allowances to wounded terrorists and the families of dead terrorists was at least NIS 151.6 million in 2019, and accordingly, the total minimum PA expenditure in 2019 on its payments to terrorists and families of dead terrorists, dubbed as its “Pay-for-Slay” policy, was NIS 669 million ($193.6 million).
Israeli law stipulates that it must deduct the sum the PA pays to terrorists from the tax funds it collects on behalf of the PA, and accordingly, the Israeli government must deduct MIS 669 million from the taxes Israel collects and transfer to the PA in 2020.
Since its creation in 1994, the PA has implemented a policy according to which it pays millions every year in monthly financial rewards to imprisoned, released, and wounded terrorists, and to the families of dead terrorists.
In 2018, Israel passed a law according to which at the end of each year, the Minister of Defense must submit a report to the Security Cabinet detailing the PA’s expenditure on terrorist salaries and allowances in the passing year. Once the Cabinet approves the report, the PA expenditure in the previous year is deducted in 12 equal parts from the taxes that Israel collects and transfers to the PA the following year.
