Palestinian Finance Minister Meets with Israeli Officials — After Abbas Said ‘No More Cooperation’
On Tuesday, Palestinian finance minister Shukri Bishara met with Israeli Finance Ministry officials to discuss several issues, including the deduction of Palestinian tax revenues and the deduction of the Israel Electric Corporation’s debts from tax revenues.
This meeting occurred despite the announcement by President Mahmoud Abbas that he would stop all cooperation and all agreements signed with the Israeli “occupiers.”
Of course, when it comes to the actual issues, Abbas has no interest in ending mutually beneficial cooperation with Israel.
But Abbas got headlines for his latest lie, and that’s all that really matters.
