Palwatch: [World Bank website, Sept., 19, 2019]
“The outlook for the Palestinian territories is worrisome as drivers of growth are diminishing and the severe liquidity squeeze has started to affect the PA’s ability to fulfill its responsibilities of paying its civil servants and providing public services.”
This ostensibly bleak prognosis was based on a 15-page report that pointed to two major factors that contributed to the PA’s financial crisis, but completely ignored the elephant in the room:
That the PA’s financial crisis is a direct result of its “Pay-for-Slay” policy which has the PA squander millions of shekels/dollars/euros a year to pay monthly salaries to terrorist prisoners and released prisoners as well as monthly allowances to wounded terrorists and the families of dead terrorists! more …
Opinion: There is nothing that causes a progressive to salivate more than supporting dictators, terrorists, and corrupt globalist organizations. The PA and World Bank notwithstanding.
On March 23, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the Taylor Force Act (named after a former US army officer who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist while visiting Tel Aviv), halting US funding to the Palestinian Authority until Ramallah stops issuing such payments to terrorists sitting in Israel jails.
“The law will halt US funding to the Palestinian Authority until Ramallah stops issuing such payments. But it includes three exceptions, allowing for US funding to Palestinian water and childhood vaccination programs, as well as to East Jerusalem hospitals.”
World Bank officials, IMF officials, UN officials, EU presidents and the Democrat Party are supporting some of the heinous terrorists parading as Palestinian officials in the world. Only one man is standing in the gap.
I don’t know how he does it.
