JNS.orgPalestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah recently said that with the approval of President Mahmoud Abbas, the PA plans to grant 5,000 released prisoners who had spent more than five years in Israeli prisons with a “dignified life grant,” Palestinian Media Watch reported.

Most of the prisoners referred to by Hamdallah are convicted terrorists. Palestinian Media Watch reported that if approved, the grant would total $15 million this year. The announcement of the grant appeared in the official PA daily newspaper at the same time that the U.S. announced a contribution of $148 million to the PA.

Hamdallah on Sept. 6 said, “The [PA] government has not abandoned and will never abandon the brave prisoners who sacrificed years of their lives for the Palestinian cause and for our national goals,” according to Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

    And this attitude to reward convicted murderers of innocent, unarmed, defenseless men, women, and children with a “dignified life grant” should not be condoned; rather it is more proof of the maligned mentality so prevalent in the Palestinian Authority. Literally taking money granted to the PA and redistributing it among such ignoble vile excuses for human morality makes the United States appear a laughing stock in the world arena. Tell me that such obstensive injustices should be awarded by US taxpayers’ money, including my money. I find any US government that allows this type of abomination worthy of being called an abomination. No doubt that the Palestinian leadership is shameless; now it is evident that the US leadership is shameless as well.
