PLO official: Israel starts sanctions against PA

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Israel officially notified the Palestinian Authority Monday that it put into effect sanctions against the Palestinians in response to the swearing in of a unity government including Hamas, a PLO official said.

Hanna Amirah, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, told Ma’an on Tuesday that sanctions included the invalidation of VIP cards of PA officials, reduction of tax revenues which Israel collects and delivers to the PA and prevention of visits between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

Israel, he highlighted, denied three officials from the Gaza Strip entry to the West Bank Monday where they were supposed to be sworn in as ministers in the Palestinian unity government.

The Palestinian political echelon didn’t take interest in the Israeli decision to boycott the government which President Mahmoud Abbas considered a turning point marking the end of inter-Palestinian split.

However, Abbas warned that any Israeli procedures against the government would be met with Palestinian response through peaceful, legal and diplomatic channels.

Asked by Ma’an about security coordination between Israel and the PA, Amirah said that “in most meetings of the Executive Committee there were calls to stop security coordination, but President Abbas preferred to deal with issue leisurely.”

"Through legal and International channels". Enough negotiation with Israel. Take the case to the ICC and lets get the show on the road.

So what? Israel has been committing ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people for decades - what can be worse than that? The whole world is fed up with Israel's double standards!

Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel should quit talking about sanctions against the Palestinians and start acting. Israel should stop collecting clearance revenues and close their ports and borders to the Palestinians. No more work permits, no imports or exports through Israel, and no more shekels for the Palestinian banking system. That should be good for a start.

These actions come from reason, rather than "love", where Neither Americans, nor Israelis, are fools, and Neither will help an enemy pay for the bullets, rockets, or tunnels, that will be used to murder or abduct American or Israeli civilians !!

Stop this so called, "security coordination between Israel and the PA," You only do the dirty job of the occupation when you hand to them wanted Palestinians or facilitate and provide cover for their soldiers entering the Palestinian areas.

It's encouraging to see how badly Israel is managing this. Even if one granted their goals were legitimate, they could be playing their hand a lot better.
