Lieberman: U.S. Aid Funds Palestinian Authority Stipends for Killers of Americans


avigdor-liebermanThe Palestinian Authority is using U.S. aid to pay stipends to terrorists who murdered American citizens, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Tuesday. If Fatah and Hamas finalize their power-sharing agreement, funding a government backed by Hamas would be illegal under American law because the U.S. has designated it a terrorist organization. But if Hamas supports a technocratic government from the outside, it is possible that the Obama administration will pressure Congress to maintain the funding.

“Abbas, who whines about the PA’s finances, pays large stipends to prisoners convicted of murder and those who tried to become suicide bombers,” Lieberman said. “The prisoners are given three times as much as Palestinian policemen.”

  1. Why then does Israel also give money to the PA is it for them to build better bombs to destroy and kill Israeli’s. You can’t yell at one country for giving money to PA when Israel does the same thing, for not only Israel give PA bribe money but apparently they also give the free electric.
