The 'moderate' Fatah government of 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and 'technocrat' Salam Fayyad transferred an entire year's salary to the entire 3500-member Hamas 'executive force' in Gaza.
The source added "it was a mistake in the computer, as the Fatah employees were surprised that their salaries were not transferred to the banks in Gaza, but the salaries of the EF were."

Ma'an's correspondent in Gaza confirmed that Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's government paid not just one month of the salaries; but an entire year's earnings.

Spokesperson of the Executive Force, Sabir Khalifa, confirmed to Ma'an that 3,500 members of the force received salaries for 12 months. He added that it is almost half of the force that received their salaries.

Khalifa said "this is an official recognition from [Palestinian President] Abbas and Fayyad that the force is legitimate and legal."

The remainder of the EF, who did not receive their salaries, said that half of the force received a grant from deposed Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. The unpaid force members said that they expect that they will be paid by Haniyeh's government in the future.
But give them a state reichlet and they'll hire someone who knows how to program a computer....

I calculated on my blog that this is about $16 million that Hamas just received.

That's a year's salary for 3500 people? It's only $657 each.

Hamas administrators are paid $0.32 per hour? No wonder they're so grumpy.

Not quite that bad. They get about $375/month (1500 shekels) x 12 x 3500 = $15,750,000.

About $1.87 an hour.
