Netanyahu folds again

Any of you who thought that Prime Minister Netanyahu had finally learned to say 'no' to the Left after all these years are sorely mistaken.The Primee Minister folded again on Tuesday, providing the 'broke' 'Palestinian Authority' with NIS 400 million (a little more than $108 million) to pay terrorists' salaries. This is from the first link.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided on Tuesday evening to transfer to the Palestinian Authority some NIS 400 million Israel collected last month in tax revenue for the PA, but withheld in response to the Palestinian statehood upgrade move at the UN in November.
A source in Netanyahu’s bureau said the decision was for a one-time transfer and was due to the economic hardships facing the PA.
Netanyahu met on Monday in Jerusalem with Quartet envoy Tony Blair, where this issue was raised. The US has also raised the issue with Jerusalem.
Government sources rejected speculation that the move was a confidence-building measure toward the PA taken in the wake of the recent Israeli election to try and create a more positive atmosphere.
The sources also denied the move was related to the coalition-building steps and the likelihood that Yesh Atid, which has called for promoting talks with the Palestinians, is to be a key member of the new coalition.
Further transfers to the PA of the tax revenues would be evaluated on a month-bymonth basis, sources said.


Netanyahu’s decision rolls back an announcement former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman made on December 10 that Israel would not transfer a shekel of tax revenue to the PA for the next four months. Liberman said the PA owed Israel NIS 6 billion, which included NIS 900m. that the PA owed to Israel for electric and water bills, and NIS 700m. that was owed for funds advanced in the summer to pay PA salaries.
Fellow Israelis, look for our electric rates to go up to pay off the Electric Company on the 'Palestinians' behalf. What could go wrong?

Can a black man change his skin or a leopard its spots?
Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.
Jeremiah 13:23

THAT IS TRUE FOR LEADERS, as we learn from RaMba"M's explanation of an evil leader who loses his freedom of choice, as he explains "and God hardened the pharaoh's heart".
After so much evil is done by them, leaders lose the capability to do teshuvah and turn to good.
Netanyahu had been going down Sharon's path.
