The Missing Billions of the Palestinian Authority


Palwatch: Since its creation, the Palestinian Authority has received tens of billions of dollars of international aid. Just since 2011, the European Union, the United States, and other countries have provided the PA with hundreds of millions of dollars and euros of aid.

While the PA has constantly complained about its financial difficulties, scrutiny of the PA’s own financial records for the years 2011 – 2018, shows that the PA transferred from its coffers over 7 billion shekels to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), some of which was then given to terrorist organizations. In that same period, the PA also spent over 440 million shekels to fund its non-functioning institutions.

The PLO, which is also headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is an umbrella organization for several Palestinian groups. The largest and most dominant member is Abbas’ Fatah party. Other members include groups designated as terror organizations by the US and the EU such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Palestinian Liberation Front. PLO members are entitled to and receive funding from the PLO. more …

Opinion: The PA/PLO sprang from two of the most evil men of the 20th century, Yasser Arafat and his deputy Mahmoud Abbas who were/are responsible for an impossible to count number of deaths of both Arabs and Jews.

The PA today open flaunts payments to terrorists who murder Jewish citizens and provide additional payments to their families for life. The PA says the payments are a form of welfare to the families who have lost their main breadwinner and denies it seeks to encourage violence.

A new sheriff ain’t buying it:

Since taking office, President  Trump has slashed hundreds of millions of dollars of aid for Palestinians, including all of its support for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees and nearly $200 million earmarked for humanitarian programs in the West Bank and Gaza.

Last year, the cuts abruptly ended food assistance to 180,000 Palestinians on behalf of the World Food Program, and defunded several health initiatives and hospitals. Infrastructure projects, including water treatment facilities in the Gaza Strip, have also been put on hold.

The White House has said that the unprecedented aid cuts are aimed at pressuring the Palestinian Authority, which has rebuffed US peace efforts since Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017.

Yesterday PM Netanyahu requested 12 million be transferred to the PA seurity forces to which Trump replied “If it is that important to Netanyahu he should pay the Palestinians $12 million – not the US”

And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:24

Amazing ins’t it. Gentiles will be dominating God’s land until the last Gentile God wants saved gets saved. When that happens the Church will be gone (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:16-17).
