How our taxpayer dollars finance Palestinian terror

Acclaimed author  Edwin Black's disclosure on how  British and American aid subsidizes Palestinian terrorism has gone virtually unnoticed in the Western media. Nearly 6% of the Palestinian budget is diverted to prisoner salaries.  "Donor countries" such as the United States, Great Britain, Norway, and Denmark finance this.

He writes:
Here's how the system works. When a Palestinian is convicted of an act of terror against the Israeli government or innocent civilians, such as a bombing or a murder, that convicted terrorist automatically receives a generous salary from the Palestinian Authority. The salary is specified by the Palestinian "law of the prisoner" and administered by the PA's Ministry of Prisoner Affairs. A Palestinian watchdog group, the Prisoners Club, ensures the PA's compliance with the law and pushes for payments as a prioritized expenditure. This means that even during frequent budget shortfalls and financial crisis, the PA PA pays the prisoners' salaries first and foremost – before other fiscal obligations...

Under a sliding scale, carefully articulated in the law of the prisoner, the more serious the act of terrorism, the longer the prison sentence, and consequently, the higher the salary. Incarceration for up to three years fetches a salary of almost $400 per month. Prisoners behind bars for between three and five years will be paid about $560 monthly – a compensation level already higher than that for many ordinary West Bank jobs. Sentences of ten to 15 years fetch salaries of about $1,690 per month. Still worse acts of terrorism against civilians, punished with sentences between 15 and 20 years, earn almost $2,000 per month. 

These are the best salaries in the Palestinian territories. The Arabic word ratib, meaning "salary", is the official term for this compensation. The law ensures the greatest financial reward for the most egregious acts of terrorism.

TO: The members of the UN Security Council


We file herewith our petition to the UN Security Council to pass a resolution for the muslim occupants withdrawal to Jordan based on the borders of 1948 between Israel and occupying Jordan, which is the illegal “Palestinian” state without Palestinian people who are in fact the Jews of Palestine per British Mandate IDs stating, “Nationality: Palestinian, Religion: Jewish.” The undisputed fact is that the so-called Trans-Jordan has 77% of former British Mandate arabs and a “Palestinian” Parliament, hence said arab imposters, occupants and illegal settlers that had stolen the name Palestinians and lands from the Jews of Palestine, have no bona fide claim of rights and legal RE titles to Jewish Palestinian lands to create there a 4th illegal and terrorist muslim state (others are Jordan, Syria and Lebanon) on the native and sovereign territories of former Jewish Kingdoms of Judea and of Shomron, also allocated up to Iraqi border for Jewish Homeland by the League of Nations Decree and intl. agreements.

We and only we have the bona fide claim of right to native and sovereign Jewish lands and good faith land title, -- not the muslims occupants and Nazis which had signed an agreement with Hitler to exterminate the Jews of Palestine, and which had massacred thousands of Jews and Christian in Israel, Lebanon and around the world. Hence is our legal right to create a second Jewish state in the Middle East per UN resolution. We accordingly claim back all our territories under muslim occupation, demand our UN representation as that by muslim imposters without Palestinian people or lands in Israel, and demand the UN resolution to deport all muslim occupants back to Trans-Jordan, with no further illegal UN interference in our internal affairs.

Yours faithfully,

Legal Dept.
