It looks like during 2013 PA security cooperation got non-existent. Every day we read about protests which end up with throwing stones and Molotov cocktails, damaging security barrier and raising palestinian flags on Israeli institutions. And during all those activities PA police and security forces are not seen around. It is time for US and EU to remind Abbas that he can count on financial aid only as long as there is a quite in West Bank and palestinian terrorists are under his control.
