A British lawmaker condemned the Palestinian Authority’s misuse of international aid money, demanding the UK cease payments to the PA that go to reward terror.
During a recent hearing on British aid to the Palestinian Authority chaired by Middle East Minister Alistair Burt, British Conservative lawmaker Andrew Rosendell issued a scathing condemnation of the PA’s use of foreign aid to fund terror.
In December 2016, the UK issued new guidelines regarding aid to the PA following revelations that the money was being used to pay salaries to terrorists and their families. According to the announcement, key changes were made and the UK would focus solely on vital health and education services.
Reports indicate that the PA nevertheless continues to transfer foreign aid money to fund terror.
Listen to Rosendell’s courageous statement and Burt’s surprising response.
MUST WATCH: Today, Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell MP condemned monthly salaries by the Palestinian Authority to terrorists in Israeli prisons which reportedly amounted to £250 million in 2017 – "worth 7% of its budget and an astonishing 50% of its foreign aid receipts". He said that "these salaries directly reward terrorism" and asked the Minister if he agreed that "these payments are abhorrent and must cease".Middle East Minister Alistair Burt underlined that the UK Government makes "constant representations to the Palestinian Authority about the impact of any incitement to terror and payments", says PA is "well aware of our views and opinions on this".The exchange took place during International Development questions in the House of Commons today.
