Evidence of PA involvement in terrorism and corruption

Documentation of the PA’s use of aid money to incite, facilitate and reward terrorists – and indoctrinate children to want to murder Jews

The following items represent an initial effort to provide the concerned newcomer with a well-rounded body of documentation to demonstrate the PA’s deep, long-term involvement in terrorism – and its use of Western aid money to do so.

Documentation of massive corruption and theft of aid money by the Palestinian Authority

Report: Billions of Dollars of Aid to Palestinian Authority Lost to Corruption, by Zach Pontz, The Algemeiner, October 13, 2013.

Where Did All the Billions of Dollars Given to the Palestinian Authority Go?, by Barry Rubin, GLORIA Center, June 3, 2012. Excerpt:

Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Salam Fayyad says that his regime is short of funds. And meanwhile a reader asks me:

“Can you please explain to me why 20 years after Oslo and billions in dollars in foreign aid, the Palestinian Authority (PA) still has not built modern hospitals?  Or rather, why do the donor countries pour money down the PA drain without expecting even some face-saving results?”

Good question. Short answer: Swiss bank accounts. In other words, a huge amount of the money has been stolen. There is nothing more distasteful than rulers of a people–especially a poor people–who complain about their subjects’ suffering at the same time that they profit from it. Of course, when some foreign observer sees Palestinians in poor conditions they blame Israel, thus furthering the cause of the same leaders who, -by their intransigent policies, ensure that the situation continues.
