Excuse me, what right does Israel has to withhold those tax monies which is the right of the PA in the first place anyway? Truly Israel is an undemocratic state. “Democracy” in Israel is just cosmetics.
A senior Israeli official reported on Friday that Israel intends to release $100 million of Palestinian tax revenues it withheld, to the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas by Friday, Israeli online daily Haaretz reported.
Haaretz added that the move is part of a U.S-led plan to bolster Abbas and make him able to make the long-due salary payments to government employees.
The United States and Israel led an embargo against the Hamas-led Palestinian government since it was elected last year.
Haaretz also reported that the Israeli Prime minister, Ehud Olmert, has been under pressure from the United States in order to take steps that would bolster Abbas and his power in order to weaken Hamas.
