The Palestinian terrorist who brutally murdered three members of the Salomon family will highly benefit from the PA’s “Pay-for-Slay-Program.”
The family of Omar al-Abed, the knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist who brutally murdered three members of the Salomon family during their Shabbat dinner on Friday, will enjoy a generous payment from the Palestinian Authority (PA) for killing Jews.
As a result of the PA’s program to pay Palestinians who commit terror attacks – sometimes termed the “Pay-for-Slay-Program” – the al-Abed family is expected to receive a monthly lifetime salary of $3,120, Liel Leibovitz reported Sunday in Tablet Magazine. This sum is typically given to terrorists sentenced to 30 years or more in prison.
Just for comparison, an average Palestinian engineer earns about $1,300 per month.
Leibovitz’s assessment follows reports that the PA increased its spending on salaries to terrorists and their families in 2017. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported Wednesday that payments to jailed terrorists increased 13 percent, from 488 million shekels ($135 million) in 2016 to 550 million shekels ($158 million) this year. The overall 2017 budget for payments to terrorists and their families amounts to 1.237 billion shekels ($355 million).
The PA’s latest budget also shows that payments to the families of “martyrs,” often terrorists who have killed Israelis, increased by four percent from 660 million shekels ($183 million) in 2016 to 687 million shekels ($197 million) in 2017.
On Monday night, Israeli security forces arrested al-Abed’s mother for incitement after she expressed pride her son’s heinous actions.
