The PLO has again gone beyond satire. From the official Palestinian Authority new agency Wafa:

Member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Saleh Rafat, said Thursday that any Israeli action against financial allowances made to families of prisoners and those killed by Israel is unacceptable.

The Knesset voted on Wednesday in the preliminary reading to deduct the equivalent of the allowances estimated at $280 million a year from the tax funds it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority on products entering through its ports but destined to the Palestinian areas.

Rafat accused in an interview on Voice of Palestine radio the Israeli parliament of piracy and of stealing the Palestinian money, saying it will not be accepted.

He stressed that Palestinians killed by Israel and the prisoners are victims of the occupation.

He said if Israel does carry out such an act, then the Palestinian Authority will take it to the International Criminal Court.

Yes, a PLO official is saying that Israel must pay the people who try to, or succeed, in murdering Israeli citizens - under international law.

Please, please go to the ICC, Mr. Rafat.

And beyond that: Please publicize this Israeli human rights violation widely. Especially in Europe, where Palestinians still have significant support among the people.

Please ask Amnesty and HRW to join you in this campaign. Publicly.

Please make sure that Mahmoud Abbas makes this demand the next time he addresses the UN.

Saleh Rafat, by all means, expose Israeli human rights abuses by its reluctance to reward terrorists and their families.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
