Palestinian PM conditions salaries on Hamas concessions

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami al-Hamdallah

Palestinian Authority (PA) employees in the Gaza Strip will receive their full salaries depending on the availability of funds and Hamas’s response to certain political demands, Rami al-Hamdallah, head of the Ramallah-based Palestinian government, said Tuesday.

He made the assertion in a press statement released following a weekly meeting in Ramallah, during which he reportedly vowed that his government would “not abandon the Gaza Strip”.

“The recent decision to reduce the salaries of [PA] employees in Gaza is a temporary one,” he said in the statement.

Full salaries, he went on to assert, “will be paid once the needed funds are available and Hamas responds to proposals made by Palestinian President [Mahmoud] Abbas”.

Last week, Abbas called on Hamas — which has governed the Gaza Strip since 2007 — to dissolve a recently established “administrative committee” tasked with coordinating between various branches of the Hamas-run Gaza government.

Hamas MP Yahia Moussa, for his part, said the seven-member committee had been drawn up with a view to “coordinating between the ministries of the Gaza government in the absence of any governing role by the Ramallah-based unity government”.

The PA’s Gaza-based employees were surprised early last week to find that their monthly salaries for March had been cut by some 30 percent.

In an effort to resolve the crisis, Fayez Abu Eita, a spokesman for Abbas’s Fatah movement (which leads the unity government), said a Fatah delegation would visit the Gaza Strip “within days” to meet with Hamas officials.

Abu Eita did not provide an exact date for the visit but voiced hope that Hamas would “respond positively” to Abbas’s request for the new administrative committee’s dissolution.

“We hope to see an end to Palestinian divisions and the formation of a government capable of exerting control over the entire country and resolving its many crises,” he added.

Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem, for his part, said that reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas could only be achieved “if President Abbas wills it”.

“Reconciliation hinges entirely on the president; it depends on his personal discretion,” Qassem told Anadolu Agency, going on to assert that Abbas “rejects any kind of national partnership”.

Qassem also called for “the immediate implementation of earlier reconciliation agreements” and an end to what he described as the Palestinian president’s policy of “monopolising Palestinian decision-making”.

In 2014, Hamas and Fatah – which govern the Gaza Strip and the West Bank respectively – agreed to establish a unity government.

The unity government, however, has so far failed to assume a governing role in Gaza due to outstanding differences between Palestine’s two leading political factions.

Protest

In a related development Tuesday, leftist activists demonstrated outside the unity government’s Gaza City office to protest last week’s salary cuts.

Participants held banners aloft reading, “No to exclusion and discrimination” and “Gaza is part of Palestine and deserves justice”.

Tuesday’s protest saw the participation of leading members of Palestinian leftist factions, including the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Palestinian National Initiative, the Palestinian People’s Party and the Palestinian Democratic Union.

Addressing protesters, leading PFLP member Khaled Thawabta warned that the salary cuts which he said had affected “all segments of our people”, would lead to “catastrophic social and political repercussions”.

“The salary issue is entirely political,” Thawabta asserted. “It is fundamentally tied to the ongoing state of

It is fundamentally tied to the ongoing state of inter-Palestinian rift.

    The PA proving once again, and again and again – that it is an arm of the Zionist entity; ironically this time it is using the same method of imposing conditions to get entitled monies that its zionist masters often use again it. The PA, like the zionists, doesn’t care that Palestinian families suffer.

      Vacy – Alligator tears, you hypocrite ignorant……. get some facts.
      Hamas is very serious… about stealing billions from aid intended to the Palestinians.
      Khaled Mashaal, head of Hamas’s political wing. “Global estimates say Mashaal is worth $2.6 billion,”
      Next on the list is Ismail Haniyeh, His fortune is estimated at 4 million dollars, and most of his assets in the Strip are registered in the name of his son in law Nabil, and a dozen children of his and other less known Hamas officials,
      Most of their money comes from misused donations to the Gaza Strip, since every dollar passes through Hamas’s pipeline.
      “What’s unique about Palestinian leaders over the years is the motto ‘Get rich quick’. Leaders there have no shame. They take over crucial industries like communications and gasoline as soon as they take the reins.

        How much have they invested in the betterment of their own people? Jewish entrepreneurs have invested in businesses that would have given Palestinians jobs and improves their lives. How much have these wealthy Palestinians invested? Oh, sorry, that should have been, How much have they invested in the betterment of their own people?
        Once again, Jews are better than Palestinians!

          from Jonathan Cook

          Saffuriya was one of more than 500 Palestinian villages ethnically cleansed by Israel in 1948, during the Nakba. Journalist Jonathan Cook explains how Israel quickly acted to raze the villages so the 750,000 refugees could not return and then covered up these war crimes by planting forests over the ruins.

            “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE. IT IS JUST AN ARAB TACTIC FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL!”
            PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein

            “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a
            Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle
            against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality
            today there is no difference between Jordanians,
            Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and
            tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of
            a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand
            that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian
            people’ to oppose Zionism.
            “For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state
            with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa.
            While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa,

            Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we
            reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even
            a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.” .

          It’s not imagination. The Zionists love to murder people to their advantage. Why are you covering up for them? Is it because you know about the Polonium 210? They certainly weren’t going to get him like they got the fellahin whose land they were stealing at Deir Yassin.

          Eyewitness Accounts[Deir Yassin]

          The eyewitness accounts of these events foreshadowed the fate of the Palestinian people.

          It was noon when the battle ended and the shooting stopped. Things had become quiet, but the village had not surrendered. The IZL (Irgun) and Lehi (Stern Gang) irregulars left the places in which they had been hiding and started carrying out clean-up operations in the houses. They fired with all the arms they had, and threw explosives into the buildings. They also shot everyone they saw in the houses, including women and children – indeed the commanders made no attempt to check the disgraceful acts of slaughter. I myself and a number of inhabitants begged the commanders to give orders to their men to stop shooting, but our efforts were unsuccessful. In the meantime, some twenty-five men had been brought out of the houses: they were loaded into a freight truck and led in a ‘victory parade,’ like a Roman triumph, through to Mahaneh Yehudah and Zikhron Yosef quarters [of Jerusalem]. At the end of the parade they were taken to a stone quarry between Giv’at Shaul and Deir Yasin and shot in cold blood. The fighters then put the women and children who were still alive on a truck and took them to the Mandelbaum Gate. [54]

          The director of the International Red Cross in Palestine, Jacques de Reynier, attempted to intervene as word of the slaughter spread. His personal testimony is as follows:

          … The Commander of the Irgun detachment did not seem willing to receive me. At last he arrived, young, distinguished, and perfectly correct, but there was a peculiar glitter in his eyes, cold and cruel. According to him the Irgun had arrived twenty-four hours earlier and ordered the inhabitants by loudspeaker to evacuate all houses and surrender: the time given to obey the order was a quarter of an hour. Some of these miserable people had come forward and were taken prisoner, to be released later in the direction of the Arab lines. The rest, not having obeyed the order, had met the fate they deserved. But there was no point in exaggerating things, there were only a few dead, and they would be buried as soon as the “clean-up” of the village was over. If I found any bodies, I could take them, but there were certainly no wounded.

          This account made my blood run cold. I went back to the Jerusalem road and got an ambulance and a truck that I had alerted through the Red Shield … I reached the village with my convoy, and the firing stopped. The gang (Irgun) was wearing uniforms with helmets. All of them were young, some even adolescents, men and women, armed to the teeth: revolvers, machine-guns, hand grenades, and also cutlasses in their hands, most of them still blood-stained. A beautiful young girl with criminal eyes showed me hers, still dripping with blood; she displayed it like a trophy. This was the “clean-up” team, that was obviously performing its task very conscientiously.

          I tried to go into a house. A dozen soldiers surrounded me, their machine-guns aimed at my body, and their officer forbade me to move. The dead, if any, would be brought to me, he said. I then flew into one of the most towering rages of my life, telling these criminals what I thought of their conduct, threatening them with everything I could think of, and then pushed them aside and went into the house.

          The first room was dark, everything was in disorder, but there was no one. In the second, amid disembowelled furniture and all sorts of debris, I found some bodies, cold. Here the “clean-up” had been done with machine guns, then hand grenades. It had been finished off with knives, anyone could see that. The same thing in the next room, but as I was about to leave, I heard something like a sigh. I looked everywhere, turned over all the bodies, and eventually found a little foot, still warm. It was a little girl of ten, mutilated by a hand grenade, but still alive … everywhere it was the same horrible sight … there had been four hundred people in this village; about fifty of them had escaped and were still alive. All the rest had been deliberately massacred in cold blood for, as I observed for myself, this gang was admirably disciplined and only acted under orders.

          After another visit to Deir Yasin I went back to my office where I was visited by two gentlemen, well-dressed in civilian clothes, who had been waiting for me for more than an hour. They were the commander of the Irgun detachment and his aide. They had prepared a paper which they wanted me to sign. It was a statement to the effect that I had been very courteously received by them, and obtained all the facilities I had requested, in the accomplishment of my mission, and thanking them for the help I had received. As I showed signs of hesitation and even started to argue with them, they said that if I valued my life, I had better sign immediately. The only course open to me was to convince them that I did not value my life in the least. [55]

            Terrorism: How the Israeli state was won
            Middle East – Tom Suarez on January 1, 2017

            From the beginning of World War II through to the summer of 1947, there were virtually no Palestinian attacks, even though Zionist terror against Palestinians continued. A British explanation for the Palestinians’ failure to respond in kind was that they understood that the attacks were a trap, intended to elicit a response that the Zionists would frame as an attack against which they would have to ‘defend’ themselves. This was a Zionist tactic noted by the British as early as 1918, and it remains Israel’s default strategy today, most blatantly in Gaza, but also in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

            As late as the fall of 1947, the Jewish Agency was concerned by the Palestinians’ failure to respond to its provocation, but when the end of 1947 came and the Jewish Agency could wait no longer for the civil war it needed, it was simply a matter of ratcheting up the terror

            3) You forget to mention the fact that the Ashenazi did not even know there was this wonderful food called falafel and humus that he now loves so much – – because he white European feet never touched that soil until he came to colonize the land in 1882.

Why was it acceptable to destroy their places of worship which had served them for centuries? Why was it acceptable to desecrate their cemeteries?

        It never was Arab land. It was and always has been the homeland of the Jews. Even from 1948 to 1967 the Jordanian occupation was deemed illegal and accepted by only two nations, Britain and Pakistan. Israel reoccupied land that was rightfully theirs. Only their determination to do the right thing morally kept them from turfing the Arab settlers out back to Jordan and Syria where they belonged. Instead they accepted them, giving them religious rights on the Jewish Temple Mount and giving them a place to live in Gaza. Look what Hamas has turned that into!

Your precious “Palestinians” come from all over as well. Look at little Shirley Temper, the girl famous for biting an Israeli soldier arresting her brother, Ahed Tamimi. That blonde hair is natural but not the result of “Palestinian” genes. It comes straight from the Russian Steppe. Over 50% of Jews in Israel are from the Middle East. They are the indigenous people of Israel. The Bible documents their connection to Israel and Jerusalem. Their religious practices further document that connection. The Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem was populated with Jews until the Jordanians ethnically cleansed Jews from the area and razed the homes families had lived in for centuries. There were Jews fighting on the walls of Jerusalem against the Crusaders. Jews have a continuous presence in Israel and especially Jerusalem.

            NO! The Ashkenazi can be a Jew but genetically, he is 100% European!

            At 0% ancestry ties to Palstine but at 99.9% ancestry to Europe, what is the Ashkenazi doing on Arab land? I thought Hitler had been dead for decades? Why not go home to where your 99.9fo% of your DNA is from?
