Palestinian Authority Owes Israel Electric $350 Million

The Palestinian Authority continues to operate on the back of Israeli consumers, whose rates for electricity constantly rise while PA Arabs simply don’t pay to the extent that their debt to the Israel Electric Corp. now stands at $750 million.

In the past, Israel simply used Value Added Tax revenues, collected for the Palestinian Authority, to pay off the debt.

That no longer is feasible diplomatically because it would punch another hole in the Obama administration’s cherished peace talks.

Globes business newspaper noted that the Palestinian Authority could reach energy self-sufficiency if it were to take advantage of off-shore natural gas fields, which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ha offered to help develop for the regime.

“Information indirectly obtained by the media indicate that the Palestinians are largely responsible for the problem,” the left-leaning Globes wrote this week. “Their conduct, according to this partial information, has been amateurish, if not actually childish, and is mostly defamatory and slanderous.

  1. JD Mora says:

    Easy, pull the plug. If they don’t pay AND SOON, no electricity. PERIOD

  2. Yechiel Baum says:

    globally, if you default, you garnish the assets. since Obama gives the terrorists so much money, let Obama pay back bills meanwhile shut off their power. Let their arab brothers give them the electricity to electrocute themselves.

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    give that money to Haddassh hospital and remove the Haddassah debt.

  4. Maureen Moss says:

    Cut off their power. Perhaps that would encourage them to pay up!

  5. Bill Russell says:

    IAM NOT A JEW BUT INJUSTICE IS IN JUSTICE BHO IS THE NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN OF OUR TIME
    HE WILL CAUSE WW3

  6. I urge Palestine to pay the bill. You should be thankful to the Jewish people.

    The Israel policy portrayed as economic, medical, humanitarian aid…
    Or portrayed as the Israel abitlity to conduct its mission of developement, security & diplomacy.
    Is in such case nothing less than the policy of Jizya Payments that are parts of the Dhimmitude Policy.

    The Jabotinsky 5 memim are twisted to apply mainly to the IslamoNazis collection of jihadis tribes called ‘palestinians’.
    In other words expecting Israel to the ‘real christian’ of this world is nothing less than Treason.

    Such Israel policy conforms to the exigencies of the international jihadis strategies
    where the Caliphate UNGA & UNHRC Islamic Fatwas are portrayed as resolutions & as international law.

    Needless is to say that the moral relativist, multiculturalist Left could care less if such Israel policy are exposed for they are as long as the 1993 Peres Oslo Betrayal process-policies run full steam.

    Such policy not only at a time that many in Israeli could use some relief in electricity & water bills,
    in home cost, and in the ever increasing fuel prices.

    But such policy also at a time that IslamoNazis Allah Dictators vast lands that stretches from the Atalntic Ocean to the China Borders are not only immeasurably rich in natural resources but have also enough room to fabricate a ‘palestinian’ state & absorb the IslamoNazis portrayed as ‘palestinians’ .

    And a IslamoNazis Allah Dictators Occupation that rather exploite those said resources to hire jihadis, fund them, buy weapons for the Jihad Expansion agenda, creating in the process displaced persons portrayed as ‘muslim refugees’ absorbed in non-muslim countries where they assert the Jihad Expansion agenda.

    Koran 13:41 “Do they -the infidels- not see that We visit their land & persistently reduce the territory in their possession and add it to the Muslims territory by progressive conquests from its outlying borders?
    “Do they not see that We persistently undermine the Law of most of the areas under their rule &
    they -the infidels- are gradually falling under the Islamic Rule?

    Koran 33:27 “And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, AND To a Land Which You Have Not Yet Trodden.”

    “It is a settled policy of America, that as peace is better than war, war is better than tribute.
    The United States, while they wish for war with no nation, will buy peace with none.”
    President Madison

    Bat Ye’or : “If (Israelis &) Westerners… ignore the historical, juridical, and theological structure of jihad and its corollary, dhimmitude, then they will understand nothing about current events. They will become—like their predecessors of whose history they are ignorant—the slaves of their conquerors.”

    —like their predecessors of whose history they are ignorant—
    Surf & learn from the websites that speak of the policies that led to the Purim & Hannukah historical events.

    Share, tweet & ‘buzz’ so the mainstream medias publish the A7 post

    About 40 Norwegian Christian leaders and clerics held a special ceremony in the Knesset Wednesday to formally apologize on Norway’s behalf for their role during the Holocaust and the 1993 Oslo Accords.

    The representatives then delivered a speech expressing support for Israel, as well as reservations about the Oslo Accords, which they claimed “rips apart the Land of Israel.”

    Chairman of the International Christian Embassy in Norway, Doug Aoibind Juliussen, stated “We Christian leaders in Norway, want to apologize and ask for forgiveness from the Jewish people for Norway’s attitude towards you from the Holocaust through Oslo Accords and until this day.”

    Josh Rinstein “the Christian leaders apologize for anti-Semitism… the Oslo agreement, and the boycott Norway supports [against Israel].”
