Palestinians Should Pay for Sderot Damage

The Legal Forum for Israel sent a letter to PM Netanyahu and Minister of Defense Moshe Ya’alon today (Jun. 29) demanding that compensation for the damage caused to the factory burned last night in the Sderot industrial area after it was hit by rockets from the Gaza Strip be deducted from the funds transferred by Israel to the Palestinian Authority.

Nachi Eyal, CEO of the Forum, wrote the two demanding that any sum of money allocated for the rehabilitation and compensation of the factory owner and its employees should be taken from the funds collected by Israel for the PA, even if there is not intention of transferring them to the PA now. In actual fact, the demand is to have the PA cover the costs of the damage.

The plant in Sderot was damaged by the barrage of rockets launched from the Gaza Strip on Saturday night at Sderot, as it was hit and consumed by fire. According to the terms of the Oslo Accords and the Paris Agreement, the Israeli authorities collect taxes for the Palestinian Authority. Parts of these funds end up in the Gaza Strip, directly or indirectly by the payment of salaries to workers in the PA who work in Gaza.

The Forum claims that the transfer of funds is not only prohibited by law but is further immoral. Late in 2009, the Forum’s lawyers petitioned the Supreme Court against the transfer of funds to Gaza, but the state justified the transfer of funds to Gaza and rejected claims that it was a breach of the law prohibiting the finance of terrorism.

  1. Absolutely yes, take it from the tax money we stupidly send them every month.

  2. To the Jewish Press: Stop perpetuating myths by using the term “palestininans” when referring to arab living in Israel.

  3. THINGS ISRAEL NEEDS TO DO NOW WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAS OCCURRED:
    1) ASSERT SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE ENTIRE TEMPLE MOUNT.
    2) ANNEX ALL OF JUDEA AND SAMARIA.
    3) TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY TO ALLTHE MUSLIM AREAS UNTIL THEY PAY THEIR BILL.
    4) WITHHOLD ALL THE TAXES THAT WE COLLECT IN ISRAEL FOR THE MUSLIMS.
    5) FOR MUSLIMS CITIZENS OF ISRAEL AND THOSE WHO WANT TO BE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL, THEY NEED TO SIGN AN OATH OF LOYALTY TO ISRAEL THAT THEY ARE HELD TO…….IF THEY DO NOT WANT TO SIGN NOR ABIDE BY ANY SUCH DOCUMENT, THEY MUST LEAVE.
    6) BLACKTOP GAZA AND CLEAR OUT THE SCUM.
    7) RESIGN FROM ALL ASPECTS OF THE UN…..AS WELL AS KICK THE UN OUT OF OUR COUNTRY.
    8) ADVISE ANY OF OUR NEIGHBORS THAT SURROUND US, THAT ANY VIOLATION OF OUR BORDERS, WILL CAUSE A COMPLETE ANNIHILATION OF THEIR COUNTRY.
