PA Ministry of Information: Israel “exceeds all terror,” is the “spiritual forefather of extremism and racism”

Headline: "[PA] Ministry of Information: Liberman's declaration regarding the [Palestinian] National Fund is insolence"

"The [PA] Ministry of Information said that occupation [Israeli] Minister of War (sic., Defense) Avigdor Liberman’s declaration of the [PLO] Palestinian National Fund as a terrorist organization is the height of insolence and proof of political foolishness.
The ministry said in a statement: 'It would be more fitting for Liberman and all of the politicians in Israel to acknowledge that the occupation is an act that exceeds all terror, and that it is the spiritual forefather of extremism and racism.'
The ministry said that it thinks that Liberman's stupidity constitutes a continuation of the occupation state’s evasion of recognizing international law, and a desperate attempt to incite the world against the PLO and its mechanisms."

On March 16, 2017, Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman declared the Palestinian National Fund of the PLO a terrorist organization. The fund manages financial aid received by the PLO from different sources. The Israeli Ministry of Defense declare the fund a terror organization due to the fund's "massive support for elements responsible for committing severe acts of terrorism against Israel," and stated that the fund serves "as a significant financial pipeline for tens of millions of shekels that are transferred on a monthly basis to security prisoners held in Israel for committing acts of terrorism and to members of their families," and that "the fund also supports family members of terrorists who were wounded and killed while perpetrating acts of terrorism against Israel." It also stated that "the necessary steps will be taken, in Israel and abroad, to seize and forfeit the property and money belonging to the fund.”
Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA uses the Palestinian National Fund to transfer money for terrorist salaries to the PLO.
