RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian political leaders on Sunday told Ma'an they believe the failure of Arab states to deliver on aid pledges is the result of US pressure.

Arab League members had agreed a $100 million monthly payment to the Palestinian Authority, but the League chief Nabil al-Arabi said on a visit to the West Bank on Saturday that none had been delivered.

Deputy Secretary General of the PFLP Abdul Raheem Mallouh said that there are American pressures on the Arab states to financially blockade the PA.

Secretary General of the Popular Struggle Front Ahmed Majdalani said the failure to transfer funds was "clearly a political decision... (and) collective punishment against the Palestinian people because of the agenda of seeking an independent Palestinian state"

Meanwhile Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf said it was up to Arab states to explain the impasse.

The West Bank's Palestinian Authority is facing worsening financial straits as donor pledges from the Western and regional nations drop off, and Israel seizes Palestinian tax revenues.

Actually, it is the result of the Palestinian leaders wasting (or stealing) previous aid, failing to negotiate with Israel and being nothing but trouble for other Middle East countries.

Tears are coming into my eyes because of this "Arab support". From March till December are more days then a snale needs to bridge the distance towards the Palestine people. And now suddenly the American pressure is the blame. Wake up, the Arab brothers never intended to help. They have enough troubles in their own houses! And it is not the first time that the Arabs do fail to support the Palestines......
