Israel gives 'Palestinians' NIS 200 million reward for UN gambit
The government of Israel has decided to give the 'Palestinian Authority' a NIS 200 million reward for their UN gambit by transferring that amount of 'tax money'
to the 'Palestinian Authority' just two days before the UN vote. Of course, as usual, much of that money
will go to pay the salaries of the PA's 'employees' in Gaza (you know, the ones who bragged that they shot 516 rockets
at Israel last week), to pay Hamas
, and to pay the 'salaries
' of 'Palestinian' terrorists
in Israeli jails.
The transfer of the money, 200 million shekels, took place just two
days before the vote in the United Nations General Assembly on the PA’s
unilateral bid to become a non-member observer state.
The transfer was done despite recent threats by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman that if the PA goes ahead with its statehood bid, he will work to ensure the entity collapses.
Army Radio noted that Israel has said it would not take
extreme steps in response to the PA’s statehood bid but has continued to
threaten to freeze the funds it transfers to the PA each month. Despite
this threat, however, and despite PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s
statements that he does not intend to back down from the move, Israel
transferred the funds on Tuesday.
Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, who has also threatened the PA with sanctions if it goes ahead with its bid, told Army Radio on Wednesday that Israel would respond to the move at the correct time and place.
“If the Palestinian Authority thinks it will attack us in the UN in
such a harsh way and will continue to benefit from the cooperation with
us, I think that some surprises await it,” said Steinitz.
If only our politicians had the courage of their convictions....
