When it comes to fundamental Palestinians rights, Netanyahu operates like an unmatched despot, cutting off all humanitarian support in order to continue the suppressive genocidal agenda.
“This is real piracy. They are stealing Palestinian funds. It’s not theirs to decide what to do with it in the first place. If the Palestinians were free, they wouldn’t need Israel to collect customs.
These funds were deducted from taxes Israel collects from all Palestinians living in the occupied territories including the West Bank. The evil measure was approved by an overwhelmingly hostile Zionist 87 – 15 majority.
Newly enacted Knesset legislation permits withholding millions of dollars of welfare payments made by the PA to families of Palestinian political prisoners and other families of Palestinians killed or wounded by the Israeli military.
Joint (Arab) List MK Jamal Zahalka called the new fascist bill “despicable,” adding the Knesset is “stealing from the Palestinian people. In heated debate, he called co-sponsor of the law Avi Dichter a “terrorist.” Ziofascist Islamophobe best describes him and most other Knesset members, militantly hostile to Palestinian rights.
Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeiheh blasted the new measure, saying it’s “a declaration of war on the Palestinian people and a severe blow to the Oslo Accords,” adding “all options are open for the Palestinian leadership, including the International Court of Justice and the UN Security Council.”
Israel ignores international law and Security Council resolutions hostile to its arrogant interests with impunity – because of full, uncompromising support by Washington, no matter how vile, cruel or lawless its practices.
Over $330 million will be withheld, Palestinian money, not Israel’s. Taking it illegally amounts to grand theft – unrelated to the stated purpose, entirely related to forcing oppressive hardships on the Palestinian people, this action one of many.
Israel’s grand theft measure, withholding vitally needed UNWRA funding, calls for withholding aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) unless it meets four unacceptable conditions:
- Terminating financial aid to families of Palestinians unjustly called terrorists by Israel;
- Revoking laws authorizing the aid;
- Taking “credible steps” to end justifiable Palestinian resistance against a ruthless occupier falsely called terrorism; and
- Only Investigating alleged Palestinian violence, publicly condemning it.
The legislation ignored Israeli high crimes of war against humanity, its daily state terror against millions of defenseless Palestinians, falsely blaming them for Israeli crimes committed against them.
