Israel to withhold $138 million in Palestinian funds

Israel said Sunday it will cut around 5 per cent of the tax handovers to the Palestinian Authority over its financial support for jailed Palestinian militants. As per an interim peace deal, Israel collects taxes on behalf of the Palestinians. With negotiations stalled since 2014, Israel has at times withheld money as a measure of protest.

The shocking thing to take away from this is that $138m only accounts for 5%!

This was going on for a long time. The PA was warned multiple times. They consciously chose pay-for-slay policy rather than investing in improvement and development. Still, expect hand-wringing and bleating by "human rights" activists.

Think about what would happen if Mexican citizens attacked the American border crossing constantly with explosives and rocks. Mexico would be an anarchic state for not being able to control its own people. Why doesn’t Palestine prevent its people from attacking the border? Could it be that they don’t give a shit about the well-being of their own people?
