The P.A. punishes its own medically needy citizens, depriving them of care in order to pay over $138 a year to murderers, other violent criminals, and the families of those killed committing acts of terror.
While the Israeli cabinet authorized a deduction of nearly $140 million from the P.A. due to its longstanding policy of paying monthly stipends to convicted terrorists and their families, Abbas remains committed to the reprehensible practice.
Faced with massive cuts in tax revenues based on the Palestinians’ pro-terror pay-for-slay policy, Abbas declared he would continue paying terror stipends, even if these payments exhausted all PA funds.
