PA Official Rejects ‘Insane’ US Demand To Stop Paying Terrorists

1

A senior Palestinian Authority official has rejected the “insane” US demand that it end its policy of providing social welfare payments to the families of Palestinian terrorists jailed for carrying out attacks against Israelis, Times of Israel reports.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ foreign affairs adviser Nabil Shaath on Thursday told Israel Radio the Trump administration’s demand was intentionally designed to sink any potential for renewed US-led Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

“It’s absurd to request that we stop paying the families of prisoners,” he said. “That would be like asking Israel to stop paying its soldiers.”

  1. Oh so another words you support the terrorism so then why should we believe you’re serious about peace in other words. We can only have peace if you leave us alone and let us keep on killing you
