Knesset approves automatic deduction of terrorists’ stipends from PA funds

Under the new law, supported on both sides of the Knesset by 87 votes to 15, monies budgeted by the Palestinian Authority for supporting app. 35,000 families of Palestinian terrorists, will be automatically deducted from the amounts Israel collects and forwards to the PA. The law’s sponsors calculated that NIS1.2bn (app. $330,000) was deposited in the “Martyrs’ Fund” last year, around 7pc of its budget.

    It is long overdue that these amounts are deducted from the PA. It seems only fair that equivalent funds also be deducted for the destruction of crops and firefighter wages to combat the burning kite campaign. I believe President Trump could give them some pointers here on recouping their losses. Peace.

    Do you mean to tell me that the Israelis were PAYING the terrorists to kill jews? That’s interesting. Glad it stopped.

      Still, lots of countries are doing it: paying to kill.
      America is one of the worsts, lots of money, truck of money.
      France and Germany too.

    Bless the name of the Lord!
    Finally He made this miracle: the Knesset suddenly falls into the right mind thinking, and does the right thing.
    A bit like 50 years late, but never too late.
