For all those who pay American taxes, did you know that you are funding terrorism?
Now before you stop reading and assume this is some right-wing polemic, please hear me out. According to the folks at Palestinian Media Watch, (I know — two hat tips in a row, but they really are good,) the Palestinian Authority continues to award cash prizes for the families of terrorists.
In the period prior to the murders of Ruth and Udi Fogel and their three children in the Israeli town Itamar, the Palestinian Authority continued to encourage terror by glorifying terrorists as heroes and role models and through calls for violence. In addition, in an act that sent a clear message of support for terror, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas awarded $2000 to the family of a terrorist who attacked and tried to kill Israeli soldiers – just 2 months ago.
Now it’s bad enough that Abbas and his thugs are sending checks to reward terrorism, but just think for a moment about where that $2,000 check came from. The Palestinian Authority has almost no revenue. They are completely dependent on hundreds of millions of dollars delivered by the U.S. and other foreign countries. So a portion of your tax dollars is funding the same people who are handing out checks to terrorists and their families.
So as we RIGHT NOW cry rivers of tears for the murdered family from Itamar, I can only imagine how long will it take before we hear that the terrorists have deposited YOUR money as an expression of appreciation from the PA. Yes, the same PA that condemns terrorism in front of the news cameras turns around and pays for it when the cameras are turned off.
And while we are on that note, why are the cameras turned off? Can it be that no one in the media is aware of what’s going on? I mean I hardly did a comprehensive investigation right now. I merely got an e-mail from PMW that lays out the facts. Where does PMW get their information from?
From the Palestinian Authority’s own newspapers and television shows.
