The PA's New Terror Law The PA's New Terror Law

Re: blueslord's previous post pointing out Palestinian hypocrisy (talking of their commitment to peace and condemning terrorism publicly-- yet continuing to take actions that support terrorism), a recent article sheds further light on the "double game" the Palis are playing:

The PA's New Terror Law
By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa A. Lappen
December 6, 2005

The very same day that an Islamic Jihad suicide bomber killed at least five Israelis and wounded more than 40 innocent people in a Netanya shopping mall, the Palestinian daily, al Hayat al Jadida (page 3), reported that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, signed a new law to support the families of suicide bombers.

Enacting a special law to financially support terrorists will ensure that this kind of activity continues. Each shahid's family will receive a monthly stipend of at least $250. The family of a married shahid will receive an additional $50. Parents will receive an additional $25, and each additional child and/or brother or sister will get another $15.

In what has become the staple subterfuge of PA, Abbas issued a condemnation of the latest attack in Netanya: "These operations against civilians cause the greatest damage to our commitment to the peace process, and the Palestinian National Authority will not show indulgence towards anyone who is found responsible for this operation." Yet, hours earlier, Abbas had signed into law financial incentives for future suicide bombers. It is time for the international community to stop funding the PA. (full story)
