Israel Gives Palestinians NIS 200 Million

Galei Tzahal reports that despite Israeli threats to withhold money if the Palestinian Authority doesn’t stop its UN bid for statehood, Israel transferred on Tuesday NIS 200 million (around $50 Million) to the Palestinian Authority to help them pay salaries. The money was paid from taxes collected o behalf of the Palestinian Authority.

One wonders why that money isn’t being used to buy more Iron Dome missiles which cost around $50,000 a pop, or build more bomb shelters, or to repair buildings damaged by the Palestinians.

  1. So who gives the PA more social services; Hamas or the State of Israel?

  2. Richard Korkiakoski says:

    The Bible, Matthew 23:37-39
    O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent to you, how often would I(Jesus) have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, You shall not see me from now on, till you shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

  3. Jones Gore says:

    Why doesn't Isael consume Gaza and the West Bank over ten years making palestians citizens of Israel. There is nothing in Islam that states muslims can not live under jewish or christian leadership. Muhammad peace be upon him sent muslims to live under Christian king in Africa. It is time for Palestinians to think bigger than the small slivers of land they live on.

  4. Charna Carole Ball says:

    because it is a jewish state. NOT a muslim state and they are democratic. If palestinians out number jews it will not be a jewish state anymore!! DOES THE HOLOCAUST mean anything to you?

  5. Nitzan Havoc says:

    It’s ok, I’m sure that this time they’ll act differently and use the money to build houses, shelters, farms and markets, maybe even to start a civilian business, or anything else that would benefit the civilians in Gaza. No reason for them to spend it again on Iranian missiles, right? Why would they do that? Oh, perhaps because their “government” is a terror organization with extreme religious beliefs stating that their only goal in life is to kill Jews?
