With US money, who needs Israel?

A $200 million tranche of aid released by the White House to the PA allowed the Israeli government to take the moral high ground and refuse to release this week’s tax transfers to Palestine.

The Israeli move is entirely symbolic. The tax transfers have not been lost, but merely postponed. They amount to just about $27 million. The Israeli government lied, claiming that without the transfers the PA won’t be able to pay the salaries of 180,000 state employees—who surely receive more than $150 a month.
