100,000 Demand: Cut Water and Electricity Supply to the PA

JERUSALEM – Close to 100,000 signatories have joined a petition demanding that the Government of Israel cut off the water and electricity supply provided by Israel to the Palestinian Authority.

Under the title ‘It’s time to stop the Palestinian Circus!’ the petition states: “There will be no water, no electricity, and no transfer of goods and treatment of the wounded – until the return of our boys! The Government of Israel will not negotiate any price, the power is in our hands and that’s the time to return the pride to the State of Israel!”

The petition garnered tremendous support in only three days.

Tazpit News Agency spoke to one of the organizers, who expressed regret at the aspect of collective punishment, but explained its significance. “This action is required for two reasons: first, the tactical need to bring the three abducted boys back. The other point is that Israel’s pride and stature are at stake here; we must not bend to the terrorists’ demands. Seeing the boys coming back will create a surge of national pride, which I believe has been lost. My heart is with the families, I hope this works.” He conceded that he did not expect such massive and swift support. He plans to submit the petition to Minister of Economy Bennet and MK Ayelet Shaked, with the intent of them bringing the issue to the government.

One signatory from Passaic, New Jersey wrote: “Why is Israel providing free water and electricity to these Arabs anyways? At the very least the Arabs should be paying at least as much as us, if not more. Israel needs to stop putting the welfare of those who want Israel destroyed over the welfare of their own Jewish citizens.” Israel currently supplies all electricity needs to the Arabs in Judea and Samaria. Palestinian customers receive the electricity through the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem District Electricity Company. The PA’s has 730 Million NIS debt to the Israel Electrical Company (IEC). Each month, IEC sends a warning letter about the debt, and it is in talks with the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem District Electricity Company, but no agreement has been reached on payment.

    Drive them away!

  2. Joe Weiss says:

    This resolves nothing and will only make things worse.

  3. I am bothered by the lack of real deterring action. Israel should start turning the Arab villages in that area into parking lots!
    Of course we need to pray that the kids are rescued safely and unharmed but the army and the gov should be MUCH more forceful!!
    Now is battle time. Call up the reserves and lets change the equation for ever!!

  4. Then people will try and make you look no better than the Nazi regime of the second world war,is it really what we want,for sure the Palestinians will gain sympathy from the western world and beyond advice don’t even go there.

  5. Paul W. Howe says:

    Yes do. They dont pay so let them pay now..

  6. Elyse Dorm says:

  8. Thomas Lundh says:

    Annex Gaza, Judea and Samaria. At least you wouldn’t have to deal with the two-faced PA anymore.

  9. If a dog barks you don’t bark back , but if he comes to bite you no one on his sane mind would bark at the dog, you just hit it as hard as you can so it won’t attack again.
    Don’t need to be eintstein to get that

  18. Eddie Ancona says:

    Its time to take action, I don’t know what that action is, but something must be done to send a clear message to those savages , those people don’t even condemn the action, they have a campaign saluting the abduction, with kids sticking their 3 fingers up in joy, this is people that want peace? Why should we support people that are all in majority looking for our destruction, let their Arab brother countries supply them with all those things, there are plenty.

  19. Linda Lutkus says:

    Why not? If Russia can cut off oil to Ukraine for prepayment surely Israel can cut for no payment.

  20. everyone in the entire Northern Hemisphere has serious Anger issues and all need to do Anger Management courses – the lot of you are off your heads

  26. they have no business in Israel

  27. Shirley Santanello says:

    These Palestinians deserve for Israel to cut their water & electricity for the terror they constantly cause Israel. They should be given an ultimatum return the kidnaped jewish teens or face the consequences.

  28. Sarah Jahed says:

    This is just sad! Can’t belive Israel always points out on what happened in WWII and behaves the same way…

  29. Paul Miranda says:

    For a global peace, islam must be eradicated!!!!!!

  33. Eddie Ancona says:

    I don’t see why we have to support people who seek our destruction, its kinda contradicting , we don’t owe those people anything, they are the group of people who declared war on us, from the beginning , let their brother countries support them, there are plenty.

  34. Maybe there terrorist Flotilla brothers will give them fresh water! Or Maybe they can prey to the G-d of Israel that they’d get water .

  35. Why do they supply it to begin With?

  36. We are not evil people! We heal “them” when they come to Israeli medical centers. We went through the Holocaust and were not treated like humans, let’s NOT stoop to that level and cut off their water supply. It will only bring on MORE hatred. We have to find a way to continue taking the high road as we are not barbarians! Let’s not ever forget this!!!

  37. Abbas wife is being treated in an Israeli hospital. Kidnap her!!

  38. PEACE works: war does not. Sit down and negotiate and renegotiate and renegotiate a compromise…….Smoking a Peace Pipe is much better than throwing a bomb, or, receiving a bomb. LOOK FOR PEACE…

  39. Is sad but they don’t want peace, why we have to keep feeding them, if they act like the dog that bite the hand who feed them, just cut everything and let’s see if they understand.

  40. Eddie Ancona says:

    These people prove time and time again they don’t want peace, they made their decision , now let them pay the consequence of what they started by touching our people.

  42. terrorism defined,,thats

  43. Well if people are like me. I own my utilities and haven’t gotten paid for usage either. I’ll have them cutoff too. They do the same thing over here in America. Run up the telephone bill with long distance charges and lie saying they didn’t make the bill. Close the business and reopen in another name and new telephone number and stiff the owners of the building because they get stuck with the utilities that they made. Gas, water it’s all the same. And a Timraz there is a Timraz here. Always on the most wanted terrorist list. Right here in Tuscaloosa, Al. Owes for child support, past due utilities and slander and defamation. Thanks to Chicago, Bill Clinton and the Obama administration. Why you can’t find your most wanted. Over here keeping up that same doo doo. He was to supposedly lost his head ten years ago. So why is he here with this other missing terror cell?

  44. I would also sign!

  45. You cannot imitate evil monsters. You have to show you are better than they are. One day the ignorant will admit who the evil trash really are the new Hitlers.

  46. Why are we treating them in Israeli hospitals ? We can’t even walk freely in our own land with fear of being kidnapped and used as a bargaining tool, They do not deserve our good hearts and hospitality on any level, they must not have these luxuries at all, I believe in an eye for an eye.

  47. (ง´▽`)ง Yess.. I really agree with Israel cut off the water&electricity supply to PA.. They really bad!! Kill all Terrorism!!

  48. The truth is the truth and you may not want to face this harsh reality, but history , especial evil has a habit of repeating itself.

  49. Couldn’t agree more, they hate us so much , why must we help or more so , why do they want ANYTHING from the JEWS ?

  50. I stand with Israel.

  51. Polly Dorst says:
