The anti-Semitic Democrat Party insist that this neo-Nazi terrorist organization should be rewarded a state. The depraved Joe Biden will give these savages your hard earned money if he is elected POTUS. Jewish Americans must run from the Democrat Party!.
PA hiding terrorist salaries from donor countries in financial reports
In 2018 and 2019 the salary payments appeared in the PA’s Budget Performance Reports, but this year they have disappeared, while spending on the PLO has shot up.

Monthly budget documents prepared by the Palestinian Authority for 2020 show that it is attempting to hide the salaries it pays terrorists from international donors, making a sham of its commitment to financial transparency.
The PA receives hundreds of millions of dollars annually from donor countries around the world and is therefore obliged to produce fully transparent financial records, with all expenses listed, for the benefit of its donors. However, its “pay to slay” scheme, which pays terrorists a monthly stipend, likely falls foul of international law, leaving it unable to openly declare the payments within its budget.
Consequently, the NGO Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has found that the PA is diverting the payments through the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), a trick it has used in the past.
“Ever since PMW notified the donor countries that the PA is paying salaries to terrorist prisoners with their money, the PA has been doing everything it can to confuse the donors,” Itamar Marcus, director of the media watchdog.
“In 2014, the PA closed the PA Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs, and in 2015 it created the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs. In 2018, it reopened the PA Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs and in 2019 it changed its name to the Commission for Detainees’ Affairs. Now in 2020, it is trying to hide its payments by moving them once again from the PA to the PLO.”
Detailed analysis of the PA’s Budget Performance Reports shows that in 2018, the PA spent NIS 736 million financing the Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs. The following year the Authority spent a further NIS 619m. financing the Commission for Detainees’ Affairs, of which NIS 517m. was spent on terrorists’ salaries. In the 2020 reports, however, neither organization is listed, but the monies paid to the PLO have increased significantly, from just over NIS 400m. to more than NIS 700m.
In late April, the World Bank warned that the PA faced a $1 billion budget deficit this year as donor payments contracted, partly as a response to the coronavirus pandemic. The authority itself put the shortfall at closer to $1.4 billion, and announced that it would be staggering social and public servant payments in March to ensure that all payments were met.
