PLO officials: “[PA] leadership will continue to pay the salaries of the prisoners”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 6, 2018
“PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi said: ‘The law to deduct the allowances (mukhassasat) of the prisoners and wounded from the tax money, which was passed by the Israeli Parliament (refers to law deducting terror salaries from taxes collected for the PA; see note below –Ed.), is a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and the international conventions, as whoever holds prisoners is obligated to protect their lives and sustenance (the Fourth Geneva Convention relates to civilians in wartime, not terrorists imprisoned for criminal acts –Ed.). This law also contradicts the Paris Agreement, which Israel has violated and which gave it authority to hold direct contact with the world (sic., Israel has always had such authority; the Paris Agreement established economic relations between Israel and the PLO), and it abused this in order to turn us into consumers of Israeli goods.’ …
PLO Executive Committee Secretary, [Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator] Saeb Erekat said at a press conference held two days ago [July 4, 2018] that the leadership will continue to pay the salaries (rawatib) of the prisoners, the families of the Martyrs (Shahids), and the wounded, despite the occupation authorities’ decision to deduct their allowances from the PA’s tax money.”

PA, PLO officials on Israeli prisoners’ salaries bill: “Deliberate theft… which is based on defining the resistance as a crime;” “There is no power in the world that is capable of obligating us to abandon our prisoners and our people’s heroic Martyrs”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 12, 2018
         “The occupation parliament (Israeli Parliament) [parentheses in source] Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee  yesterday [June 11, 2018] approved a bill to deduct the money that the PA pays to the Martyrs’ (Shahids’) families and to the prisoners (i.e., from the taxes Israel collects for the PA, see note below –Ed.)…
PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi condemned the Israeli approval. She said: ‘The organized and deliberate theft of the Palestinian people’s money reflects the occupation state’s method, which is based on defining the resistance as a crime and imposing collective punishments on the Palestinian people. These steps contradict international humanitarian law, and constitute additional proof that Israel is going too far in punishing all those who refuse its occupation and resist its steps.’ …
The [PA] national unity government emphasized that there is no power in the world that is capable of obligating us to abandon our prisoners and our people’s heroic Martyrs. Official [PA] Government Spokesman Yusuf Al-Mahmoud said: ‘Our Palestinian people and its leadership are loyal like no other to our prisoners and our people’s Martyrs, who have sacrificed the years of their lives and their souls so that the members of our people would live and for their homeland’s freedom and independence.”

PLO official accuses US of acting like a “mafia” over UN vote on US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 20, 2017
Official PA TV, special broadcast, hosting PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi

Official PA TV host: “In everything related to the [UN General Assembly] meeting tomorrow [Dec. 21, 2017, about US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital], according to the media outlets there are threatening messages from Washington to the states that will vote tomorrow at the UN General Assembly.”
PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi: “This is cheap and very shameful extortion. Undoubtedly this [US Ambassador to the UN] Nikki Haley - I don’t know who appointed her as the world’s police officer. She undoubtedly told the states in closed meetings, and afterwards stated in her Twitter account, that ‘We will be following the vote of every state and I will submit a report to the president [Trump], and when you submit a request for aid or any type of special request, we will settle accounts with you over your vote now’ (See note below –Ed.). In other words, this very cheap and shameful extortion, the threat, and the warning are befitting of a state whose nation has declined, whose international level - whose rhetorical, ethical, political, and legal level [has declined] to this level. It acts as if it is a mafia.”
