Your tax dollars at work: 'Palestinian Authority' pays Fatah and Hamas terrorists

All of you in the US, Europe and Israel who throw money at the 'Palestinian Authority' will undoubtedly be pleased to hear that your money goes to a good cause: The care and feeding of Fatah and Hamas terrorists who are sentenced to long terms in Israeli jails.
The Palestinian Authority revealed on Sunday that it rewards both Hamas and Fatah terrorists with higher “salaries” for committing more serious terrorist attacks that are followed by convictions for long-term sentences in Israeli prison.

Most of the PA’s funds come from European Union countries, and the United States earlier this month, for the first time ever, included the PA in its foreign aid package with a $500 million grant. Twenty percent of the American money is earmarked for training the PA’s new army, under the guidance of American army General Keith Dayton.

A condition of the aid is that the PA recognize Israel, renounce violence and accept previous agreements with Israel, including a halt to anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist incitement.

The PA Minister for Prisoners told the Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency Sunday that it pays out three million shekels ($790,000) a month for monthly stipends for prisoners and their families. The minister specifically denied a complaint that Hamas terrorists were being cut off from receiving fund.

The monthly payment amount to 1,000 shekels ($260) but rises to four times that amount, more than $1,000, to terrorists who have served more than 25 years in jail for more serious attacks on Israelis.

In addition, terrorists who are released by Israel receive another 1,200-2,000 shekels ($316-$525) a month for half a year if they were in prison for at least five years. The total payments for their time in jail and release amount to as much $10,000.
Peace anyone?Anyone think the US will call the 'Palestinians' on the carpet for this? Don't hold your breath waiting.

Crime really pays. So why is every one so surprised released terrorists go back to committing more crimes? Don't look for Israel to cut off the PA's payments to terrorists in Israeli prisons. That as every one knows, would impede the "peace process."
