Does this officially end the farce of the PA "wanting peace" in the NY Times, CNN and the like? Does this officially constitute a violation to the State Dept's "Roadmap to Peace"?

The PA is going to be spending tens of Millions on paying families of Suicide Bombers and violence against Israelis - forget building housing, hospitals, Universities, economic infrastructure.... they are paying to DO the only thing they know how to do - hate, violence, death and destruction.

And why did Abbas sign this you pick?

  1. He believes in terror?
  2. He is ambivalent but needs this to maintain power?
  3. The dominant ideology in the PA territories is violence, terrorism and martyrdom?
  4. He knows Europe and even the US won't do a dam thing about it and can easily play both sides to enable the US to save face.
  5. He knows that if he doesn't Hamas and Islamic Jihad will take over the will of the people because they are strident, irredentist and much less corrupt than the PA?

In what has become the staple subterfuge of PA, Abbas issued a condemnation of the latest attack in Netanya -

  • "These operations against civilians cause the greatest damage to our commitment to the peace process, and the Palestinian National Authority will not show indulgence towards anyone who is found responsible for this operation."
  • Yet, hours earlier, Abbas had signed into law financial incentives for future suicide bombers......

The very same day that an Islamic Jihad suicide bomber killed at least five Israelis and wounded more than 40 innocent people in a Netanya shopping mall, the Palestinian daily, al Hayat al Jadida (page 3), reported that Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, signed a new law to support the families of suicide bombers.

A day earlier (Dec 4, 2005), the news was celebrated in a special gathering in Gaza, organized by Yasser Ararir, Chairman of the Gazan Association of Martyr Families, who led the public campaign for the approval of this law for over a year. He praised Abbas' decision.
Enacting a special law to financially support terrorists will ensure that this kind of activity continues. Each shahid’s family will receive a monthly stipend of at least $250. The family of a married shahid will receive an additional $50. Parents will receive an additional $25, and each additional child and/or brother or sister will get another $15.

This new law is not limited only to the suicide bombers of the second Intifada, but includes all the Palestinian suicide bombers since this practice began – thereby, adding many more millions of dollars to the budget for more terrorists. For example, covering the basic monthly grant for the 1,533 Palestinian terrorists who participated in the first Intifada (1987 - 1993), will total more than $4.5 million per year.

This law provides legitimacy to the “armed struggle” and elevates terrorists to the status of “national heroes.”
This new law that funds terrorism is the most egregious evidence of the Palestinians’ intentions to wage permanent war on Israel.
