Terror Victims Urge Bibi to Stop PA Salaries to Terrorists

As Stand for Israel has reported, the American administration is reconsidering its funding of the Palestinian Authority unless the P.A.'s funding of terrorists ends. So, too, reports Ynet News' Amihai Attali, is pressure on the issue coming from Israel, where 200 Israelis directly affected by terror have asked PM Netanyahu to ensure the same:

Two-hundred terror victims—both those wounded in attacks and those who lost loved ones—sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday demanding that he promote legislation seeking to put an end to salaries paid to terrorists by the Palestinian Authority.

Among the letter's signatories are Sarah and Eliezer Rosenfeld, who lost their son Malachi in a shooting attack; Yehuda and Tal Ben-Yishai, whose daughter Tamar Fogel was murdered along with her family in the massacre in Itamar; and Michal Salomon, whose husband, sister-in-law and father-in-law were murdered in a stabbing attack in Halamish.

Data reported in April 2017 revealed that from 2013 to 2016, the Palestinian Authority's financial support of terrorists and their families increased by NIS 125 million (some $36.3 million). In 2016, the PA paid a total of NIS 1.1 billion (some $319.65 million) to terrorists and their families...

They urged Netanyahu to advance and pass Stern's bill, saying "It's almost unbelievable this absurdity has been going on for decades. On the one hand, the State of Israel is fighting terrorism with everything it's got, sending its finest men and women to protect the citizens of Israel and endanger themselves day and night, investing most of its resources in eliminating terrorism—while on the other hand, Israel itself transfers millions every year to the Palestinian Authority, for it to continue financially supporting terrorism..."
