U.S. Philanthropist Offers Israeli Minister $200,000
to Find Change in Palestinian Charter
by Joshua Levitt
Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Monday was offered a $200,000 donation if he could back up a statement he made to The Wall Street Journal that the Palestinian National Council has officially renounced terrorism.
William Langfan, a Jewish American philanthropist, said the PNC’s charter, created in 1968, has, in fact, never been changed, still calling for the destruction of Israel, even though that was agreed to be removed in 1998, “pursuant to Arafat’s January 1998 letter to President Clinton.”...
“I also suggest that Lapid read a few days of Palestinian Media Watch
(PMW) and Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI) documented translations of the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled TV programs, newspapers, and PA leaders’ utterances,” he wrote.
