Headline: “The Shabiba of Bethlehem University announced its willingness to donate the Student Union Council budget and all of its allowances to the families of the Martyrs and the prisoners”
      “The [Fatah] Shabiba Student Movement at Bethlehem University announced its willingness to donate the budget of the Student Union at the university and all of their allowances to the families of the Martyrs (Shahids), the prisoners, and the wounded. This was after the occupation government’s decision to steal the money allocated to the Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded from the Palestinian tax money (refers to Israeli law to deduct terrorist salaries from the PA tax money; see note below –Ed.).”

Law to deduct terrorist salaries from PA tax money - Israeli law stating that the PA payments to terrorists and the families of dead terrorists is a financial incentive to terror. The law instructs the state to deduct and freeze the amount of money the PA pays in salaries to imprisoned terrorists and families of "Martyrs" from the tax money Israel collects for the PA. Should the PA stop these payments for a full year, the Israeli government would have the option of giving all or part of the frozen money to the PA.
The law was enacted by the Israeli Parliament on July 2, 2018, and its first implementation was approved by Israel's Security Cabinet on Feb. 17, 2019, when it decided to withhold 502,697,000 Israeli shekels (approximately $138 million) from the PA. In response, the PA announced it would not accept any of the tax money collected by Israel unless it also included the frozen amount.
During the initial parliamentary vote in 2018, the law's sponsor Avi Dichter said: “The Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee received much help in its deliberations... from Palestinian Media Watch who provided us with authentic data that enabled productive and professional deliberations, nuances that are very difficult to achieve without precise data.” [Israeli Parliament website, July 2, 2018]
