(Gantz, Abbas, Bennett)
Arutz Sheva: Following a meeting between Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Israel has agreed to loan the PA half a billion shekels, a massive sum which is unlikely to ever be repaid. Arutz Sheva spoke to attorney Nitsana Darshan Leitner, chairwoman of the Shurat Hadin legal organization, about the implications of the loan.
“Whether it is a loan or whether it turns out to be a grant as I believe, because the PA will not be able to repay it as was the case in the past, this is a decision that is detached from reality. Israel transfers funds to a terrorist entity, an entity that funds terrorists who sit in prisons because they murdered Jews. This money that Israel is transferring will eventually go to these terrorists,” Darshan Leiner says.
She further states that “Israel did not condition the transfer of these funds on the cessation of the Palestinian entity’s activity in the Hague Tribunal. This is an entity that seeks to prosecute IDF soldiers for war crimes, this is an entity that wants to see IDF soldiers detained in prison for thirty years. It is to this entity that Israel transfers money, even though it has not stopped for a moment the inciting of the murder of Jews in its education system, its welfare system and its media. Israel donates half a billion shekels to such an entity and it can be called a loan or a grant. It does not matter.”
Darshan Leitner does not accept the explanation that the loan is necessary so that the PA does not collapse financially. “After all, they say they are giving the grant to strengthen the PA against Hamas, but they are also giving Hamas money, one hundred million dollars through the Qatari suitcases. Does the right hand not understand what the left hand is doing?” Read More …
Opinion: Pop quiz:
Name the terror groups residing in Israel
- Palestinian Authority
- Islamic Jihad
- All the above
Obviously the answer is #4, even though most world leaders have deluded themselves in believing that the Palestinian Authority’s unelected president since 2005, Mahmoud Abbas, is a centrist.
Mahmoud Abbas, deputy to Yasser Arafat, is cut from the same cloth:
- Arranged financing of the 1972 Munich Massacre of 8 Israeli athletes
- Participated and helped plan 2 Intifadas (1987-1993/2000-2005) that killed over 5000 Israelis
- Launched the knife intifada of 2015-16 that killed over 1000 Israelis, yet somehow all this escapes the memory of secular world leaders
Mahmoud Abbas is the quintessential Amalek, who killed the weak and vulnerable in the Exodus in surprise attacks, and is well known by both religious and secular Jews as a vicious thug.
“Because the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:16
The massive aid to the PA and Hamas will not only not be paid back, it will increase attacks against Jews.
