Blame Israel: PA Angry at Israel Over Rising Electricity Prices
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/8/11 | Elad Benari

The Palestinian Authority is once again angry with Israel, only not for political reasons this time, but rather for economic ones.

The PA’s electric company announced Tuesday that electricity rates would go up by 7%, following the 12% increase in electricity rates in Israel.

The Chairman of the Palestine Electric Company, Omar Katana, placed the blame on Israel, from which the PA acquires 95% of the electricity in Judea and Samaria and 75% of the electricity in Gaza.

“Israel’s increase in electricity prices is due to the cessation of the supply of gas from Egypt and its use of expensive diesel fuel,” Katana explained. “The increase in the electric bills in the PA is due to the increase in the prices in Israel.”

The statement comes several days after the PA’s Accountant General said that the PA is still suffering from economic troubles because it urgently needs $300 million promised by Saudi Arabia and has so far only received a total of $30 million.

They’ll do the jobs that Rocklandians simply won’t. Attacking joos! and Christians, throwing rocks, firebombing cars, refusing to pay high electric bills and doing illegal boosts off the power lines. What’s not to like. America is a nation of immigrants, after all.

The PA is a hate front for the completion of Hitler's work.

They beg money from others to pay for electricity from their stated enemy. Then they complain that the price of electricity went up because one of their “allies” cut off fuel to the “enemy” generating plants.

Why doesn’t this make any sense?
