Abu Bluff turns down $1 billion because it means not suing Israel in the ICC

'Palestinian' media is reporting that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has turned down an offer of $1 billion for his 'cash-strapped' 'Palestinian Authority' because it would require him to agree not to sue Israel in the International Criminal Court.
AL MAYADEEN CHANNEL: ABBAS REFUSED A $1 BILLION DEAL TO SOLVE THE PA’S FINANCIAL CRISIS IN EXCHANGE FOR NOT GOING TO THE ICC
A senior Palestinian leader in Fatah said international parties offered President Abbas a deal that would solve the PA’s financial crisis by transferring $1 billion to the presidential treasury in exchange for a promise from Abbas not to go to the International Criminal court to try Israel’s leaders for war crimes.
The leader, who made his statements to the Mayadeen Satellite Channel said the same pressures that were applied to late President Yasser Arafat were being applied to Abu Mazen, both of whom did not break them or the people.
At present, the PA is suffering a deficit that exceeds $1 billion in its general budget. The government has said it does not know when December’s half salary will be paid either, adding that it needs $150 million each month to pay its employee salaries. (Al Quds)
In an earlier post, I reported that journalist Khaled Abu Toameh's Facebook account had been blocked (it was reinstated late Tuesday night). Here's the reason why the account was blocked (from the same link as the paragraph above).
Arab Israeli journalist Khaled Abu Toameh revealed last week that the PA cancelled outstanding electricity debts for Palestinians in the West Bank. He also wrote that despite the ongoing financial crisis in the PA, Fatah and PA officials received unprecedented privileges like dental treatment in Tel Aviv and shopping sprees in Israeli owned businesses.
Shortly afterwards Toameh’s Facebook account was temporally shutdown and whitewashed by Facebook.
But don't worry: The European Union decided on Tuesday to give the 'Palestinians' another 100 million Euros. What could go wrong?
