Palestinian Authority Paid Terrorists Over $347 Million in 2017

Palestinians paid terrorists almost $350 million in 2017

The Palestinian Authority paid about NIS 1 billion in salaries to convicted terrorists in 2017, numbers that prove the PA's support for terrorism, the defense ministry said Tuesday.

The Palestinian Authority paid terrorists and their families more than $347 million previous year, according to its own records. A sentence of 3-5 years earns the prisoner 2000 shekels ($582) while a 20 to 35-year sentence is worth NIS10,000 ($2,900) per month for life. Terrorists with Israeli citizenship receive an extra bonus of NIS 500 per month - more than $100 on top of whatever additions have already been added.

"There is nothing that better illustrates the support of the Palestinian Authority for terrorism".

Furthermore, the proposal detailed that a married terrorist receives an additional 300 NIS per month and 50 more for each child in his care.

What makes its more wonderful is (1) donor nations continue pouring in donations and (2) the average salary for PA residents in PA areas is NIS 2,000 monthly. Israel then transfers the money to the PA.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said the figure reflects the Palestinian Authority's attempt to encourage and perpetuate terrorism.

"The minute the amount of the payment is decided according to the severity of the crime and the length of the sentence - in other words, whoever murders and is sentenced to life in prison gets much more - that is funding terrorist attacks against Israeli citizens", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

On Sunday, some 200 bereaved families sent a letter to Netanyahu, urging him to push through legislation that would deduct hundreds of millions in tax funds transferred to the Palestinians, essentially biting into the payments made to terrorists and their families. According to the Ministry, the PA in 2017 dedicated 7 percent of its total budget to payments directly to terrorists - a sum amounting to NIS 550 million. "The PA is essentially condoning the murder of Israelis and we have to put an end to it".
