Palestinian Authority has paid $1,257,259 to jihad mass murderers who killed nine people at Hebrew University

The idea that the Palestinian Authority is or ever has been a “partner for peace” is ludicrous. There are no negotiations that will end the jihad against Israel. Find out why in my forthcoming book, The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, which you can preorder here.

“On 17th anniversary of Hebrew University bombing: PA has already paid the murderers over 4.3 million shekels,” by Maurice Hirsch, Palestinian Media Watch,

17 years ago today a bomb was detonated in the Hebrew University cafeteria in Jerusalem murdering 9 people, including five American citizens, and injuring over 80 others. This attack was one of many terror attacks carried out by the same terrorist cell.

Six Palestinians were convicted of the crime and sentenced to multiple life sentences. Since their arrests, the Palestinian Authority has rewarded the imprisoned terrorists paying them no less than 4,371,100 shekels ($1,257,259).

Among the convicted terrorists for this and other attacks were Adballah Barghouti – serving 67 life sentences, one for each of the victims he murdered – and Ibrahim Hamed – serving 54 life sentences, one for each of the victims he murdered. Through June 2019, the PA cumulatively paid them 1,271,000 shekels ($339,862) and continues to pay them thousands of shekels per month.

Despite its (self-inflicted) financial crisis, since the beginning of 2019 alone, the PA has cumulatively paid the terrorists almost 300,000 shekels ($86,000).

The PA obligated itself to pay monthly salaries to imprisoned terrorists when it passed the Law of Prisoners and Released Prisoners in 2004. The exact amount paid is set in regulations passed by the PA government (see chart below). Mahmoud Abbas has twice raised the salaries the PA pays to the imprisoned terrorists….
