An important & long-overdue admission of guilt from Abbas & the PA.

Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas

Finally, they have admitted the truth. All Palestinian terrorists who have murdered Israeli men, women and children were sent to murder them by Abbas and the Palestinian Authority who consider them soldiers of Palestine. quote.

As Israel mourned its fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism, top Palestinian Authority officials explained that the PA is “obligated” to pay salaries to 6,000 imprisoned Palestinian terrorists, and to the families of suicide bombers and other so-called “martyrs,” because they were “soldiers” who had been “sent” by the PA and acted out of “national interest, and not for personal reasons.” Most significantly, they “received orders” from the Authority.
PA leader Mahmoud Abbas’ spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina admitted: “It is impossible to send a soldier to war and then not take care of his family.” end quote.

I credit President Trump for this admission; Abbas is now struggling to pay the salaries of terrorists and their families thanks to Trump removing funding from the UN group that provided the cash to Abbas for this. Now he is having to make a case as to why he must continue to pay the blood money now he has lost his access to the easy, “charitable cash”, and he’s feeling the financial pinch. quote.

Speaking about the P.A.’s difficult financial situation, Rudeina told Israel’s Kan TV on April 16 that “Israel needs to understand this. It is impossible to send a soldier to war and then not take care of his family. We are talking about someone who acts on our behalf and receives orders from us.”
Similarly, Abbas himself stressed the PA’s “obligation” to pay terrorists and their families[…]

[…] Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch NGO, said: “The PA has finally admitted what PMW has claimed for years – that due to the P.A.’s overall promotion of terrorism and rewarding of terrorism, the PA recognizes that every Palestinian who commits an act of terrorism against Israelis and Jews is acting under the umbrella of the PA.
“This is an important and long-overdue admission of guilt by Abbas and the PA. Although seen by the international community as an honest peace partner, the PA has reiterated its responsibility for all Palestinian terrorism. We call on the international community to hold the PA and its leaders accountable for their actions.”
