Palestinian Authority “Pay for Slay”

Introduction:

The Palestinian Authority (PA) tells foreign audiences that they oppose terrorism, yet they pay generous rewards to Palestinians, and/or their families, who carry out bombings, stabbings and other attacks against innocents in Israel. This has been labeled the “Pay for Slay” program. This has included the terrorists, or their families, of those who have killed at least 69 American citizens. Because the U.S. provides aid to the PA, the U.S. is indirectly paying for this terrorism.

Trump, Abbas and the Repeating Themes of the Middle East Peace Process

Recently, the current Palestinian Authority (PA) President-for-Life, crooked politician, and reigning Holocaust denier, Mahmood Abbas, met with President Trump in Washington D.C. The two discussed the prospects for “peace negotiations” between the PA and Israel. Trump seemed optimistic about these prospects; apparently, the PA’s recent decision to boost the financial rewards they give to the Palestinian terrorists and the families of these terrorists, has, in no way, chilled his enthusiasm.

The fact that Abbas flagrantly lied at the podium about his regime’s continued incitement of the Palestinians and the unique “occupation” of Palestinian land by the Israelis also is unlikely to slow the Trump administration’s peacemaking fervor.

This tall, dark, handsome graduate student from Vanderbilt University had completed two tours of duty with the United States army in Iraq and Afghanistan.
