Over the past few weeks, Palestinian terrorists have unleashed dozens of attacks against innocent Israeli civilians. 

Despite its claims to the contrary, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has been inciting these attacks through its words — and its direct funding of terrorists.

Every month, according to the bylaws of the PA, the organization transfers 17 million shekels to jailed terrorists who have been convicted of first degree murder or attempted murder of Israeli civilians.

The PA also allocates funds to the families of killers, with special grants for families of killers who die while committing an act of murder.

According to the PA distribution formula, the more severe the attack conducted by the terrorist and the longer the prison sentence, the larger the stipend.

Maher al-Hashlamon Hamdi, who was convicted to two life sentences for the murder of Dalia Lemkus in a car-ramming and stabbing attack last year, started receiving monthly stipends from the PA as soon as he was arrested.

Hamdi now receives 1,400 NIS a month. These payments will increase over time, and in the future, his monthly stipend will reach no less than 10,000 shekels.

Zaid Awad, who murdered Baruch Mizrachi on Passover Eve 2014, has received stipends from the PA totaling about 30,000 shekels. These stipends followed those he received for his previous imprisonment, before he was released in the Gilad Shalita prisoner exchange.

Amad Awad and Hakim Awad, who brutally murdered five members of the Fogel family in Itamar, have so far received almost 75,000 shekels each. According to the PA’s distribution formula for murderers, they’ll continue to receive stipends that will reach 12,000 shekels a month. When calculating the total sum throughout their lives, they will each possibly receive 2.4 million shekels for the multiple murders they committed.

This PA funding is an incentive to murder.

Spokespeople for the Israeli government do not respond to questions as to why the Israeli government does not impound the bank accounts of convicted Arab murderers.

And the PA, for its part, makes no secret about its funding of terrorists. Here is the translation of an official document from the PA Department of Prisoner Welfare that sets forth its distribution formula:

Length of Imprisonment Monthly Salary
Up to 3 years NIS 1,400 ($400)
3-5 years NIS 2,000 ($570)
5-10 years NIS 4,000 ($1,142)
10-15 years NIS 6,000 ($1,714)
15-20 years NIS 7,000 ($2,000)
20-25 years NIS 8,000 ($2,286)
25-30 years NIS 10,000 ($2,857)
Over 30 years NIS 12,000 ($3,429)

When will the Palestinian Authority be held to account for its actions?

      Why don’t you identify yourself, you little coward-bastard, ‘Doug’. Just tell me where you live!

        These little eunuch cowards with no balls like to hurt inflammatory comments and insults while safely hiding behind their anonymity. But they should know that some people know how to hack through all that and find them. They should know, but they’re too stupid 🙂

      So if their lying, where did all the billions of dollars in aid that the US has been sending the Palestinian Authority go? Lemme guess, you’re going to say the kikes stole it?

      You’re a bigot, Doug. Your words mean nothing.
