Abbas Worried Israel Will Withhold PA Tax Revenues After Unilateral Steps
Jerusalem Post – Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Malki said Tuesday that P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas will appeal at an Arab League meeting in Cairo on Wednesday for political and economic support in the event of Israeli punitive measures.
Malki’s comments came after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu earlier this week issued a stern warning to the Palestinians about their application to join 15 international treaties and conventions and any future steps the PA might take outside the negotiating process to shore up legal standing as a state. “Unilateral steps on [the Palestinians’] part will be met with unilateral steps on our part,” Netanyahu warned Sunday.
