Sure you might be looking for work or worried about holding on to your job, but there’s someplace where the economy is booming and cheerful men sit around all day making 3 grand a month for doing nothing at all. And best of all, you’re the one paying for it.
The Palestinian Authority has granted jailed terrorists hefty pay hikes for murdering Israelis, with salaries higher for those with Israeli citizenship. The new pay schedule allows anyone who has served more than 30 years in jail for murdering Israelis to receive NIS 12,000 ($3,000 a month)
The 30 years is a bit steep, but don’t let that scare you off. When Abu Jihad and Mahmoud Blowup kidnap an Israeli soldier and demand the release of all 40,000 terrorists, you’ll be out faster than you can say, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
And there’s no discriminating against Hamas terrorists here. That would be Hamasphobia.
All terrorists are awarded equally, regardless of whether they “worked” for Fatah, the party headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, or the rival Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist organizations.
But surely this couldn’t be the work of that nice Mr. Fayyad. It sounds more like mean Mr. Abbas.
The hike in their ”wages” was authorized by PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad,
Terrorists such as Hamas’ Abdallah Barghouti, who engineered the deaths of 67 Israelis, pocket $1,000 a month for the first 10 years in jail and an additional $500 a month from the 11th year in jail. The total sum of $1,500 per month is the same amount that is paid to the terrorists who planned the Park Hotel massacre in Netanya.
Really this is a lot like the United States under Obama. The government is the biggest employer. Except the employees spend more time out in the sun killing people.
But at least the PA has lots of money to throw around.
The PA, which has been screaming for foreign funds to stay solvent, spends 6 percent of its annual budget to pay $4.5 million a month to jailed terrorists and another $6.5 million to their families.
Okay, not so much. But Obama does. And he just loves a homicidal civil service.
Obama lifts freeze on $192 million aid package to Palestinian Authority. Funding serves ‘security interests of the US,’ says president.
