Skip to comments.US and other Countries Drastically Cutting Aid to PA

The Palestinian Authoritys (PA) actions of supporting and promoting terrorism against Israel have finally caught up with it, and the US has completely cut its direct support to the PA in 2016 over its belligerent conduct.
PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah stated earlier this month that the US has completely stopped funding the PAs general budget. 2016 is about to end, no shekel or agora, or dinar or dollar has been paid, he said in an interview with the Voice of Palestine Radio, according to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
Hamdallahs remark corroborates a statement made by US Assistant Secretary of State Anne Patterson in April. At a hearing with the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress following the release of PMWs report, titled The PAs Billion Dollar Fraud, Patterson was challenged by committee chairman Ed Royce as to why the US was funding the PA, given documentation that the PA was still paying salaries to terrorist prisoners.
None of our money goes to this [salaries to prisoners]. Its not fungible in that respect. Our money goes essentially to pay PA debts to Israel and to other creditors, Patterson told the committee.
Many other countries have likewise cut off funding to the PA, totaling a loss of 62% 70%, according to PA government ministers.

Yikes! What did Pennsylvania do to deserve?
NO such thing as a Palestinian....they are arab invaders and cockroaches too.
Screw them . This is a CHRISTIAN nation. 83% with 6% Jew. Why the hell would we send OUR money to these gawdless cut throat mohammedans? I don’t have a clue. TELL ME!!
Oh yeah, the luciferians are using Moe's Murder puppets inc to enslave mankind.
I think it would prove god has the greatest since of humor if it is Trump who finally “solves” the Palestinian problem by defunding it. Lefty heads would explode past the current level of volume 11, to unprecedented levels of volume 12 or perhaps even 13
“Sense” of humor...(hate iphone, lol)
Welcome to the real world, Rami.
You mean...we WERE paying them?
I didn't know our USA was ever giving cash money to the filthy PA! Must have been a demorat who initiated this.
Oh Silly, They voted for Donald J.Trump! :>)
Ever since it was created
...US and other Countries Drastically Cutting Aid to PA...
Yikes! What did Pennsylvania do to deserve...
Yep. Because PA went for Trump.
Good grief! I never knew that this has been going on such a long time. One has to wonder why this expenditure of big money was being constantly approved. This should have all been stopped after Munich, 1972!!
Aid to the PA goes right to the savings accounts of the leadership.
"PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah stated earlier this month that the US has completely stopped funding the PAs general budget."
Earlier this month... after the election.
PA Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Malki admitted to the PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida in September that the current Palestinian financial situation is difficult, and there is a large reduction in foreign aid to the PA, which is estimated at 70% compared to last year  or the year before.
The people on the West Bank and in Gaza could have been a nation in the 1950s, if they had chosen to work hard for the betterment of those people.
Israel did just that and became an economic powerhouse.
The Islamists dedicated themselves not to creating a great nation for themselves. They dedicated themselves instead to destroying Israel.
They pursued terrorism for 65 years. People are sick of it.
Europe is finally realizing what absolute fools they have been.
They have practically destroyed their own nations in blind lust to hate Israel and blame it for everything bad in the Middle-East.
Well guess what. You can be as nice as you can be to the followers of Islam, and they’ll still bomb you, rape your girls and women, and riot in your streets.
Israel has been trying to tell you that for over 65 years.
You didn’t listen.
