Kadima MK Nachman Shai on Monday commented on the government's decision Sunday night to transfer tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority, saying, "Even before the ink dried on the finance minister's populist declaration saying he won't transfer tax funds to the Palestinians, it turns out that he is transferring them and with urgency, as was demanded by the international community."

"This exercise, which has been tried before and has failed, illustrates the short-sightedness of the government and its inability to confront in an inventive way the fluctuations in the Palestinian camp," Shai said.

"This is how the Israeli government is losing its credibility once again."
