PLO: Trump Helping Israel Steal From Palestinians
Israel recently passed a law that deducts an amount of money from customs duties transfers, equal to what the Palestinian Authority pays imprisoned terrorists and the families of “martyrs”. The PA has a long-standing ‘pay for slay’ policy, that incentivizes the murder of Israeli citizens, consuming over $300 million annually. The United States passed a similar law earlier this year, The ‘Taylor Force Act’, which requires the PA end the practice of paying terrorists, or face cuts in financial aid.
Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the PLO, views the new law as theft, accusing Israel of stealing Palestinian money, and is doing so as a result of US President Donald Trump’s support for Israel. The PA not only believes it has a duty to pay salaries to murderers and their families, but that it’s the responsibility of Israel to assist in the practice! Saeb Erkat should consider the possibility that President Trump’s support for Israel is partially based on the barbaric ‘pay for slay’ policy of the Palestinian Authority.
