Israel declares war on PA funding for terrorist kin after Knesset bill


Knesset Building in Israel.

(Worthy News) - Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman is setting up a counterterrorist “economic warfare” unit to go after the stipends that the PA provides for imprisoned terrorists and their families.

This comes a day after the Knesset voted to cut funds – which the Palestinian Authority gives to terrorists and their families – from the taxes and tariffs Israel collects for the authority.

In what is called the “Anti-Pay for Slay bill,” MKs voted 87-15 on Monday to back the financial restrictions. All factions except for leftist Meretz and the mostly-Arab Joint List backed the bill. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
