PA deplores tax cuts from terrorists' salaries

Headline: "Al-Malki demands that the [UN] Human Rights Council take practical steps in order to protect the two-state solution"

"[PA] Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Riyad Al-Malki demanded that the [UN] Human Rights Council take practical steps in order to protect the two-state solution, to guarantee justice for the Palestinian people, and to realize the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights – self-determination, independence in the State of Palestine whose capital is Jerusalem, and the refugees' right to return to their lands from which they were uprooted - on the basis of [UN] Resolution 194 (see note below –Ed.).

He said this in a speech he gave yesterday [Feb. 26, 2019] before the Human Rights Council in Geneva…

Al-Malki noted: 'Israel, the occupying power, is increasing its provocations and continuing the incitement and illegal steps against both the Palestinian people and its leadership.The Israeli government has acted blatantly to steal over $138 million– revenues from the Palestinian tax money that Israel collects on our behalf according the economic Paris Agreement (referring to implementation of the Anti "Pay-for-Slay” Law; see notes below –Ed.).' He emphasized: ‘This act is meant to directly destroy the Palestinian leadership, to harm the PA institutions’ ability to continue functioning – and particularly those that are acting in the fields of health care, social security, education, and security – and to harm the Palestinian families, as the theft of the tax revenues targets the most important groups in our society – the families of the Martyrs (Shahids) and the political prisoners, who were arbitrarily arrested. This is a collective punishment of this group, and this is meant to destroy the social security net that is provided to them.’"
