The Palestinian Authority will refuse all US government aid for fear of lawsuits over alleged support for terrorism, officials said Tuesday, throwing into doubt the future of security coordination and projects already under way.
Senior official Saeb Erekat said the Palestinians had demanded all funding stop at the end of January for fear they would expose themselves to costly lawsuits under the US Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act (ATCA) which is about to come into force.
“The government sent an official letter to the US administration requesting it stop all aid to the Palestinian Authority, including assistance to the Palestinian security services,” Erekat told AFP.
He said the main reason for the move was the ATCA legislation.
The Pallies should not be receiving any aid from Western states, but watch PM Asshat dump another truckload of your stolen tax dollars on them to “alleviate the pending humanitarian crisis” of their own making.
