Mohammed Rashid, the former economic advisor to Yasser Arafat who is
wanted by the Palestinian Authority for embezzling hundreds of millions
of dollars, revealed Thursday that the PA had provided financial aid to Israeli
Arab parties during general elections in Israel.
He also demanded an investigation into the source of PA President Mahmoud Abbas's wealth.
Rashid, who is currently in London, said that Abbas used to "take

sector under the pretext of helping Arab parties in Israeli elections."
Rashid, who is better known as Khaled Islam, did not name the Israeli Arab parties that received financial aid from Abbas.
