Cabinet votes to continue freeze on PA taxes

Israel's cabinet voted on Monday to continue the freeze on the transfer of tax revenues to the 'Palestinians.' The freeze was imposed in response to UNESCO admitting the imaginary state of 'Palestine' to its ranks.
The vote to continue the freeze narrowly passed, according to a government official. The funds, which are collected by Israel on imports on behalf of the PA, amount to about $100 million each month.

The move comes as representatives of the Quartet are in Israel for meetings with both Israeli and Palestinian government officials in an effort to restart peace talks between the sides.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's envoy Yitzhak Molcho was meeting with Quartet representatives in Jerusalem.
What obligates us to transfer the taxes is the Oslo accords. The 'Palestinians' have violated the Oslo Accords - pursuant to which the sides are obligated to reach a negotiated solution to their disputes - and therefore there is no reason that Israel must or should continue to abide by them.

Makes sense to me, no?
