Paying for terror

Paying for terror

The Palestinian Authority is good at speaking out of both sides of its mouth. On the one hand, the Palestinian Authority lent firefighting equipment to the Israeli efforts to put out the fires.

On the other hand, it continues its policy of incitement. In fact, many of the fires were set by Palestinian terrorists, likely influenced by the Palestinian Authority-controlled media. Arab schools in the West Bank continue to teach Nazi-like hatred of the Jews.

 The PA  continues to name schools, plazas, streets, and stadiums after terrorists who have murdered Israeli Jews. In addition, in cases where terrorists were killed or jailed because of performing terrorist acts, their families receive generous pensions or stipends from the Palestinian Authority. According to the Wall Street Journal, the last time this figure was reported it was about $75 million and current information is no longer available from the PA. This expenditure does not help the chances of peace, and does encourage further terrorism.
