Nederlandse financiering van Palestijnse verheerlijking van terroristen

 

Ondanks de andere, kritischer houding van dit kabinet tegenover de Palestijnen (een van de weinige goede zaken dat het doet), geeft Nederland nog steeds veel geld aan de Palestijnse Autoriteit, dat onder andere wordt gebruikt om terroristen die in Israelische gevangenissen zitten van een maandelijks salaris te voorzien. Ook gaan door de PA gecontroleerde media gewoon door met het verheerlijken van terroristen als Dalal Mughrabi.

 

-    In 2010, according to PA news reports, the Netherlands contributed 39,928,716 Euro to the Palestinian territories.

 

-    The Netherlands has funded PA salaries to civil servants which is the same budget from which the PA draws money to pay terrorist salaries and glorify terrorists.

 

-    Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal: "The Dutch government distances itself from these statements [of terror glorification] made on the Palestinian state television. Glorification of violence is unacceptable to the Dutch government." And "The glorification of suicide terrorism is unacceptable. When it is shown that the PA structurally condones, glorifies and/or incites to violence this must have consequences for the international support of the PA."

 

De regering moet aan haar mooie woorden en voornemens wat dit betreft nog iets meer daden verbinden, en duidelijk maken dat het een en ander niet langer accepteert.

Dutch funding and Palestinian Authority glorification  

of terrorists and payment of salaries to terrorists

http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=5660  

 

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 

In April 2011, the PA signed and published a law in the official Palestinian Authority Registry which put all Palestinians and Israeli Arabs imprisoned in Israel for terror crimes on the PA payroll to receive a monthly salary from the PA.

 

In addition, the PA honors terrorists who have killed civilians, presenting them as heroes and role models and glorifies terror attacks as heroic, including suicide bombings.

 

The PA funds these salaries and activities from its general budget, and has stipulated by law that they are dependent on "available funding".

 

The Netherlands has funded PA salaries to civil servants which are paid from the same budget from which the PA draws money to pay terrorist salaries and glorify terrorists. By funding salaries to civil servants, the Netherlands helps free up money in the general budget, which can then be used to pay the salaries of terrorists in prison and funding the glorification of terrorists.

 

Answering parliamentary questions regarding Palestinian Media Watch's exposure of PA TV's glorification of two accomplices of terrorists who murdered 34 in 2 attacks, Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal spoke out against glorification of terror:

"The Dutch government distances itself from these statements [of terror glorification] made on the Palestinian state television. Glorification of violence is unacceptable to the Dutch government."

The minister further commented:

"The glorification of suicide terrorism is unacceptable. When it is shown that the PA structurally condones, glorifies and/or incites to violence this must have consequences for the international support of the PA."

[Questions and answers,  

Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Rosenthal, 2422, March-May, 2011]

 

The PA practice of glorifying terrorists and turning them into role models of society is contradictory to Dutch principles and Dutch intentions with the aid to the PA.

 

Palestinian Media Watch director Itamar Marcus presented these and other findings yesterday in Dutch Parliament, documenting the connection between Dutch funding and PA glorification of terrorists and payment of their salaries. Read the full report below or in pdf.

PA Pays Monthly Salaries to Terrorists - Essential Facts

 

1.    New PA law enacts payment of monthly salaries to terrorists in Israeli prisons:
A law signed and published in the official Palestinian Authority Registry in April 2011 puts all Palestinians and Israeli Arabs imprisoned in Israel for terror crimes on the PA payroll to receive a monthly salary from the PA. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 15, 2011] This new law called PA Government Resolution of 2010, numbers 21 and 23, formalizes what has long been a PA practice.

2.    Recipients of the monthly salary:
The PA has defined by law which Palestinians would be considered "prisoners":

"Anyone imprisoned in the occupation's [Israel's] prisons as a result of his

 participation in the struggle against the occupation."  

[Ch. 1 of Law of Prisoners, 2004/19,
passed and published by the PA Chairman and Government, December 2004.
The Prisoners' Centre for Studies, www.alasra.ps, Accessed May 9, 2011]  

 

According to the PA definition, more than 5,500 Palestinian prisoners serving time for terror-related offenses are recipients. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 14, 2011] Palestinian car thieves in Israeli prisons will not receive a salary, but every terrorist in prison including murderers are on the PA payroll. The salary goes directly to the terrorist or the terrorist's family, and prisoners receive salary from the day of arrest. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 15, 2011]

3.    Hamas and Fatah terrorist prisoners receive monthly salaries:
"The PA's Ministry for Prisoner Affairs said that its policy had always been to pay salaries to prisoners and their families 'regardless of their political affiliations.'"

[Jerusalem Post, May 20, 2011]

 

4.    Total amount that the PA pays in salaries to prisoners monthly:
Total: 17,678,247 Shekel (3,479,022 Euro) a month, based on May 2011.

[Life and the Market, supplement to Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 19, 2011]

 

5.    Terrorists in prison receive higher average salary than PA civil servants and military personnel

Salary recipients

Average monthly salary

Civil servant

2,882 Shekel (€568)

Military personnel

2,704 Shekel (€533)

Prisoner

[Life and the Market, supplement to Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 19, 2011]

 

6.    PA salary payments to prisoners is dependent on foreign funding
The new PA law stipulates that payment of salaries "will be implemented... on the basis of available sources of funding." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, April 15, 2011] Accordingly, it is the contributions by Britain and other foreign donors to the PA general budget that facilitates the payment of monthly salaries to the terrorist prisoners.
