EU has promised to cover PA’s April salaries/pensions since they were cut by 50% to maintain its ‘Pay for Slay’ monthly stipends to assassins and their families, after Israel began deducting tax revenues earlier this year.
The European Union has pledged to give the Palestinian Authority €15 million ($17 million) to cover the salaries of public employees – salaries that PA President Mahmoud Abbas cut to keep up payments to imprisoned and released terrorists, wounded terrorists and the families of dead terrorists.
Abbas has declared that the PA is “obligated” to continue rewarding the terrorist prisoners and families of so-called “martyrs.” Continue Reading »

WASHINGTON – The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote on Thursday morning to proceed with the Taylor Force Act, after its leadership made significant revisions to the legislation in consultation with the Trump administration, Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The Institute for Contemporary Affairs reports $344 million, equaling 49.6% of all foreign aid to the PA, funds a monthly stipend to each Palestinian imprisoned for attacking Israelis, to families of “martyrs” killed in the act, or bonuses, such as the $25 million just allocated to East Jerusalem residents who rioted against security precautions placed on the Temple Mount.

WATCH VIDEO: Breaking down largely along partisan lines, democrats debate against legislation that would deduct funding to the Palestinians if PA leadership continues to divvy out monthly stipends to jailed terrorists and the families of terrorists that were killed.
By Charles Bybelezer/The Media Line
Twenty-nine-year-old Taylor Force survived military tours in both Afghanistan and Iraq, but never returned home from a visit to Israel. In March 2016, the US veteran was stabbed to death in Jaffa (located adjacent to Tel Aviv), a victim of a months-long violent uprising—dubbed the “Stabbing Intifada”—which killed dozens of Israelis and resulted in the deaths of more than 200 Palestinians (mostly attackers subsequently killed by security forces).

Ironically, an Arab media report pointed out how it’s the Red Cross who must provide imprisoned terrorists with power of attorney paper-work to sign that ultimately facilitates receiving monthly stipends for their heinous crimes, directly to their bank accounts.
By Shimon Cohen
A subsection of a Palestinian Authority guideline stipulates that imprisoned terrorists must receive their salaries only after they fill out a form provided by the Red Cross, Arab media reported.
According to the report, the Palestinian Authority’s 18th guideline is intended to regulate payments to imprisoned terrorists. This guideline designates someone or something called “Wakill” as authorized via power of attorney to receive the salaries in the prisoner’s name. Continue Reading »
To continue funding terror, terrorists, and their families, the Palestinian Authority fooled Obama by transferring hundreds of millions of dollars each year to a newly formed ‘Palestinian Prisoners Society’ within the PLO. Now, in a ‘copycat’ attempt to circumvent the Trump administration, dozens of NGOs will be established by the PA to receive the donated financial aid for continuing the monthly ‘Pay for Slay’ payments.
By Daniel Siryoti & Israel Hayom Staff
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has possibly found a way to circumvent U.S. pressure to stop payments to security prisoners and terrorists’ families.
The Palestinian Authority spends millions of dollars annually paying stipends to the families of terrorists who are either jailed in Israel or were killed while carrying out terrorist attacks against Israelis, a practice Israel has repeatedly condemned. Continue Reading »
Abbas acknowledged in his speech that it’s a ‘social responsibility’ for the PA to maintain payments to Palestinian prisoners & their families, and went on to say that referring to the jailed attackers/assassins as ‘Palestinian terrorists’ is “racist.”
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has defended payments made to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails as an important function of his government.
“The political prisoners are in effect the victims of the occupation, not the creators of the occupation,” Abbas wrote in a speech that was delivered on his behalf by an adviser at the Herzilya conference on Thursday.
“Payments to support families are a social responsibility to look after innocent people effected by the incarceration or killing of their love ones,” he said. Continue Reading »
