Gaza7Jan7NAZARETH (PNIC):-US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, held on Wednesday the Palestinian Authority (PA) responsibility for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Commenting on Nablus’ shooting attack, Friedman said on his twitter account that “PA laws will provide them (the shooters) financial rewards” in reference to PA’s compensation program to families of Palestinian prisoners and martyrs.

Look no further to why there is no peace, he wrote.

The Israeli War Ministry on Tuesday publicized a draft bill that would deduct welfare payments paid out by the Palestinian Authority to Palestinian prisoners and their families.

“The Palestinian Authority pays over a billion shekels a year to terrorists and their relatives, thereby encouraging and perpetuating terrorism,” the Ministry claimed.
