The Biden administration claims it can restore funding to the PA without violating the Taylor Force Act.
State Department spokesman Ned Price assured that the funding was “absolutely consistent with relevant US law.”
The postal bank is for mail transactions and is not a banking institution and is therefore not subject to the law on "pay-for-slay" payments.
To date, the Hague has not issued any response to the lawsuit filed against the PA, according to Shurat HaDin.
Former terrorists will be recruited into the authority's security services as part of this program, which could jeopardize Israeli security and cooperation.
They will now each begin earning NIS 6,000 ($1,806) every month.
The law will state that any person that makes a financial transaction which "supports, promotes, fund or rewards" terror activities will be subject to a prison sentence of up to 10 years
Readers of The Jerusalem Post have their say.
The Finance Ministry confirmed that Israel paid NIS 3.768 billion to the PA, and only deducted the cost of services provided, not the “pay for slay” funds.
The PA began refusing to receive the funds earlier this year when Israel began deducting payments to terrorists and their families from tax revenues.
