Dubbla budskap om lönebetalningarna till palestinska terrorister

 New York Times rapporterade den här veckan att den palestinska myndigheten överväger att sluta betala lön till palestinska terrorister som sitter i israeliska fängelser och därmed förbättra relationerna till USA.

Ifall detta påstående dyker upp i framtiden kan det vara bra att känna till att på arabiska inför hemmapubliken förnekar man blankt att något sådant kommer att hända.


PA defies coming Biden administration: Palestinian terrorist prisoners will continue to receive “full rights”

Itamar Marcus, Nan Jacques Zilberdik, and Maurice Hirsch, Adv.  | 

The PA apparently deceived The New York Times, which falsely reported:

“Seeking Restart With Biden, Palestinians Eye End to Prisoner Payments.”

Jibril Rajoub, Fatah Central Committee Sec.:

“In no way will any decision be made that detracts from any right [the prisoners] receive today. On the contrary - if we want to change it, we will make it better.”

Commissioner of Prisoners’ Affairs, Qadri Abu Bakr:

“There will be no bargaining over the prisoners’ rights… the prisoners’ rights will be realized. We also deny that the prisoners’ allowances will be paid through social institutions. These news [reports in the NY Times] are completely unfounded.”

The New York Times apparently was deceived by the Palestinian Authority, which resulted in the prominent Times’ story this week headlined: “Seeking Restart With Biden, Palestinians Eye End to Prisoner Payments.”

Nearly every day since the Times’ report, one or more senior PA officials has denied that Palestinian prisoners’ “rights” will be hurt. The head of the PA Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs, Qadri Abu Bakr himself, who was quoted by The New York Times as saying: “Economic need must serve as the basis, a single man should not be earning the same as someone with a family,” denied the information when interviewed by a Palestinian TV station. Abu Bakr said that the source was “an American paper… unfortunately we [Palestinians] have adjusted to them and repeated the same things.”

Independent Palestinian news agency Wattan host: “Are there really news reports about transferring these [prisoners’] allowances (i.e salaries) to the [Ministry of] Social Affairs [and paying] according to the prisoner’s living conditions, and not [as is PA law] according to the number of years of his sentence?”

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr: “[The New York Times] published it, and [so did] the Israeli papers. Unfortunately we [Palestinians] have adjusted   to them and repeated the same things.”

Another top Palestinian official, Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub, said not only will things not get worse for the prisoners, as the Times reported, “if we want to change it, we will make it better”:
