Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman eviscerated Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday for paying stipends to the families of suicide bombers and jailed terrorists in Israeli prisons.

Liberman told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that “while Abbas whines about the PA’s finances, he pays double to prisoners convicted of murder and those who tried to become suicide bombers.”

According to Liberman, convicted terrorists receive NIS 7,500 per month, “which is more than Palestinian policemen receive.”
