U.S. Taxes Reward Palestinian
Please Sign the Petition!
The Palestinian Authority [PA] incites violence (especially during
wave of stabbing attacks) while paying high salaries and benefits to
convicted terrorists in Israeli prisons.
Unbelievably, the more horrific the crime, and the more
Israelis or Americans murdered, the higher the “salary” and the better the “benefits.”
The U.S. has the leverage to end this appalling
practice, but has not done so.
Basic Facts about the
Palestinian “Terrorism Industry”
Much of the funds the PA uses to reward
terrorists comes from your tax dollars. The PA budget
is heavily dependent on foreign aid—and the U.S. is the PA’s largest
single country donor.
From 1993-2014 Palestinian terrorists murdered 1,513
Israelis, wounded thousands more, and also murdered and maimed some 150 American

they are released from prison,
· incentivizes terrorists by glorifying them and their actions
by holding an annual Prisoners Day and naming town squares, sports teams,
schools, and summer camps after notorious terrorists.
The PA budget is heavily dependent on donor nation money,
which thereby funds the terrorism industry.
gave approximately $30 billion in international aid to the PA between 1993
and 2012; $7 billion came from the U.S. alone and $7 billion came from the
EU; $10 billion came from individual European
countries, Japan, Australia, and Canada.
U.S. allotted $170 million and the EU allotted $421 million to directly
fund the PA budget in 2013.
- A PA
official reported that 85% of foreign donations were used for PA salaries
in 2013, which likely includes prisoner salaries.
This practice must come to
Although Congress has already passed legislation demanding
more oversight to prevent American taxpayer money from funding terrorism, no
major changes have been made: payments to prisoners are not mentioned in
U.S. Government oversight reports.
