Israeli Supreme Court ruling that the PA is a terror supporter as they pay terrorists salaries is "unacceptable and illegitimate" according to PA PM

In his speech at the start of the [weekly governmental] meeting, [PA] Prime Minister [Muhammad Shtayyeh] warned against the dangerous consequences of the Israeli escalation in the occupied territories, in light of the increase in the pace of attacks during recent days…

 

He said: ‘Israel’s aggression against our people from Jenin to Hebron, and especially in Jerusalem, in addition to the recurring invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the settlers’ attacks, and the calls by senior Israeli officials to their public to arm themselves (refers to calls for gun owners to be armed in light of a Palestinian terror wave -Ed.), only fan the escalation and constitute a call to murder.’

 

He added: ‘Israel is implementing a policy of “shoot to kill.” …The Israeli political parties are using this policy to protect themselves, on the one hand as a basis for their election campaign, and on the other hand to preserve their coalition.’ …

 

Regarding how the Israeli [Supreme] Court considered the PA a ‘terror’ supporter because it pays the families of the Martyrs and the prisoners (refers to ruling on April 10, 2022, that the PA is liable for terror activity due to its terror salaries and therefore can be sued by victims -Ed.), Shtayyeh said: ‘This is unacceptable to us, and it is illegal and illegitimate. This court is one of the occupation’s tools. We are fulfilling our duty to the orphan children of the Martyrs and to the prisoners and their families, who need all aid from us.’

 

 

 

 

The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, they vilify any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
