News and views from an Israeli girl

On my blog you can view my stories, from an inside point of view - most of which are from Israeli newspapers, blogs and personal experiences- and I hope to share with you the behind-the-scenes goings-on, context and background in which they happened from an Israeli Insider girl...... ___________________________

Past debts? Allah will pay.
[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: The Palestinians owe over a billion shekels to Israel Electric and many millions to Israeli hospitals. etc. The deduction doesn't reduce the past mountain of debt - it just current bills so that the
mountain doesn't get any larger.]
Cabinet Rejects Israeli Unilateral Deduction of PA’s Tax Revenues
RAMALLAH, March 31, 2015 (WAFA - PLO news agency) – The Palestinian cabinet, in its weekly session Tuesday, rejected Israel’s unilateral decision to transfer the Palestinian Authority’s tax revenues after deducting almost 300 million shekels ($75 million).
The cabinet reiterated its utmost rejection to Israel’s repeated act of withholding PA’s tax revenues and deducting 300 million shekels, describing it as a premeditated crime, a collective punishment against Palestinians, and a blatant violation of previously agreed upon agreements and international resolutions.
It urged the international community to pressure Israel to release the entire sum, and to put an end to this illegal action.
So they scream:
- The act of withholding PA’s tax revenues is a "premeditated" crime!
- Collective punishment against Palestinians!
The former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, Colonel Richard Kemp, explains the concept of proportionality in international law and how the term is being misused to criticize Israel.
Will someone do something??
