Violence and terror
Glorifying terrorists and terror
PA ambassador: “Israel is a breeding ground for exporting terror on the global level, and we cannot accept that they would define our heroes as terrorists like Nazi Germany described the French resistance fighters”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Mar. 23, 2019
 






Headline: "Ambassador Al-Harfi briefed the head of the Loire-Atlantique district on the Palestinian developments"
        "Ambassador of the State of Palestine in France Salman Al-Harfi briefed Head of the Loire-Atlantique District Philippe Grosvalet on the Palestinian developments and trends yesterday, Friday [March 22, 2019]…
The ambassador emphasized the rights of the families of the prisoners and the Martyrs (Shahids), and the Palestinian leadership's firm rejection of the Israeli-American extortion (apparently referring to the Israeli Anti "Pay-for-Slay" Law and the US withdrawal of aid at the PA’s request; see notes below –Ed.). He noted that the Martyrs and prisoners are the best of the members of the homeland and are not terrorists as Israel describes them. He also emphasized that Israel is a breeding ground for exporting terror on the global level, and we cannot accept that they would define our heroes as terrorists like Nazi Germany described the French resistance fighters against the Nazi occupation as terrorists."

Israel's Anti "Pay-for-Slay" Law - 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]

Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act of 2018 - Among other things, this law gives US courts the jurisdiction to seize assets from anybody that receives foreign aid from the US government, viewing their acceptance of US foreign aid as consent to US jurisdiction. This enables past and present victims of terror to successfully pursue lawsuits in US courts against such bodies that were connected in any way to the acts of terror. In the past many such cases have been thrown out due to lack of US jurisdiction.
The law took effect on Feb. 1, 2019. In response to the law, the PA requested that the US end all of its foreign aid to the PA, which it did.
