The issue is not only that the “Palestinian Authority attempts to conceal terrorist stipends” (March 20). The issue is more lethal: The PA has enacted an unprecedented law that provides an automatic salary for life for anyone who murders a Jew, a salary for the killer and a salary for the family of the murderer – in perpetuity.
The time has come for the 135 nations who recognize the PA to suspend aid to it until it cancels that law. The first nation to act in this respect must be the state of Israel. What nation on earth would tolerate a neighboring entity providing a lifetime award to anyone who will murder one of their citizens?
