The following letter sent to my constituency MP is self-explantory (triggered by today's news):
As one of your constituents I would like to know if you are aware of the following (full details provided in links at the end) and will raise these concerns with the Foreign Secretary:
a) That UK tax payer money (through its funding of the corrupt - and otherwise bankrupt - Palestinian Authority) is now being used to give every freed Palestinian terrorist murderer $50,000 plus a guaranteed 'government' job for life.
b) That every one of the latest batch of terrorists that Israel was forced to release (for nothing in return) was a convicted murderer. This includes, for example Issa Abd Rabbo, who also received a $60,000 bonus, with the PA reportedly also offering to foot the bill for a wedding should he choose to marry. He was convicted of murdering two Israeli hikers, after tying them up at gunpoint and placing bags over their heads.
c) That every Palestinian terrorist captured by Israel now receives a salary from the Palestinian Authority for life - starting from the minute they are captured (the salary is typically 15 times that of the average Palestinian worker). This includes, for example, Hussein Ghawadra who just last week was captured after killing an 18-year old Israeli Eden Atias while he slept on a bus from Afula to Tel Aviv (by slashing his neck 25 times with a knife in an attempt to decapitate him). Ghawadra said he committed the terrorist act because he was aggrieved that two of his relatives (convicted of murder) were still in Israeli prisons. Since Ghawadra is himself just 16 he is guaranteed to become a wealthy man courtesy of UK taxpayers. He is also unlikely to serve more than a small number of years in jail since experience proves that Israel will be forced by the EU and the USA to release him as a 'painful concession for peace' .
The policy of the Palestinian Authority clearly encourages the terrorist murder of Jews, since the murderers are guaranteed not just wealth beyond the dreams of ordinary Palestinians, but also great adulation (it is standard for the PA to name roads, squares, and even soccer tournaments after convicted murderers). Since the Palestinian Authority is funded solely by the EU and USA perhaps you can assure me that you will ask the Foreign Secretary to:
a) immediately stop all payments to the Palestinian Authority, hence putting a stop to this incitement and direct support for terrorism; and
b) avoid pressuring Israel to release terrorist murderers (perhaps noting that this is the equivalent of expecting the UK to release people like the murderers of soldier Lee Rigby as a 'peace gesture').
