MK Moshe Matalon (Israel Beiteinu) sent a letter this week informing the budget committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives, as well as the European Parliament of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' policy to pay murderers released from Israeli prisons $5000.

Following the deal in which Gilad Schallit was released in exchange for 1027 Palestinian prisoners, Matalon said he thought it was essential to inform the Senate, which allocates funds to the PA each year, that Abbas is rewarding "unrepentant terrorists."
