Proposed Law: Deducting Terror Funding from PA Tax Monies

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
In the budget of the Palestinian Authority it says that they transfer 1.1 billion shekels - that is over $300,000,000 - to the families of terrorists for their killing of Jews.
That's a lot of money.
MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) has joined forces with other MKs from across the benches and ha sproposed a law that would deduct the monies paid by the PA to terrorists from the total amount of tax money Israel transfers to the Palestinians on an annual basis. This is money that belongs to the Palestinians from imports that pass through Israel's ports - Israel collects the taxes and eventually passes them along.
The idea is that the funding of terrorism is a breach in the Oslo Accords, so deducting these monies from the monies to be transferred by Israel is a natural result. Israel regularly complains to countries around the world about sending money to the Palestinians that gets used to fund terror, but Israel never put a stop to transferring such money to the PA itself.
according to Kipa this law was proposed before, though it does not say why it did not pass then. I would guess that the issue with it is more international pressure than internal issues, as it has support from both coalition and opposition parties, and is a logical proposal.
