The Lubavitche Rebbe once commented that concessions to the Palestinian Authority, which works under the aegis of the Palestine Liberation Organization, represent a matter of Pikuach Nefesh- a threat to human life.

Security of land of Israel

The time has come to launch a strategic Pikuach Nefesh campaign, to challenge six life-threatening policies to Israel.

None of these challenges are insurmountable.

The goal: Organize citizens of conscience around the world to challenge policies which pose a threat to Jewish lives in Israel.

1. Pay for Slay

The PA has enacted an unprecedented statute which provides a salary for life to anyone who murders a Jew, and a salary for life to the family of anyone killed in the act of murdering a Jew. The PA adopted this policy of honoring those who murder Jews in the early stages of the Oslo Process, in October 1993.

In August 2015, the PA formalized the ordinance to automatically bestow a monetary gift on any Arab who murders a Jews, and a monetary gift for the family of any Arab killed in the act of murder or attempted murder of a Jew.

While the law of Pay For Slay has been widely condemned, it remains on the books and is applied every day, with the PA paying $1.1 billion to terrorists and their families. Source of the funds: Worldwide humanitarian donations.

The time has come to organize families of loved ones who have been murdered and whose assailants are now honored- to appeal to the conscience of every nation to demand a repeal of the “Pay for Slay” as a condition for any aid to the PA.

Such legislation, which generously rewards the spilling of Jewish blood, is documented at:

2. Indoctrination to war, as featured on PBC TV, radio and social media

Since the onset of the Oslo Process,in 1993. the Palestine Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), which operates on frequencies owned by Israel, features content that incites Arabs to wage war on the Jews. To save lives, we must put pressure on the government of Israel to pull the plug on the PBC.

3. PA schools

The Oslo process was supposed to yield the first independent Palestinian Arab curriculum, one that would promote peace and reconciliation. Instead, our review of more than 1000 PA textbooks handed over to UNRWA shows that the new PA curriculum indoctrinates a new generation toward total war on Jews, while delegitimating and demonizing the very presence of Jews in the land of Israel.

It has now an imperative to organize people of conscience to educate policy-makers and the public about the murderous messages conveyed by PA schools.

4. Palestine Security Forces

One of the core principles of the peace process, as envisioned in the 1979 Camp David accords and signed by Israel, the US and the PLO, was that the new Palestinian Arab entity would have a “strong police force” to protect it from terrorists.

However, that PA police force, known as the PSF, the Palestinian Security Force, trained by Israel and the US, has incorporated Arab terrorist organizations that remain in a state of total war with Israel. It is vital to recruit intelligence experts to brief policy-makers and the general public about the lethal dangers that lurk in the PSF.

The Dangers of US Aid to Palestinian Security Forces


UNRWA, overseeing the well-being of 6.7 million descendants of Arab refugees from the 1948 war, operates under the the funding and logistical support of the UN, donor nations and the State of Israel, located in 59 Arab refugee camps until a “just solution” is found to relieve their plight.

However, UNRWA camps are now infested with terror groups who operate under the premise of “The Right of Return by Force of Arms”, without any plan to replace Arab refugee camps with communities that would live in peace with Israel.

The UN Secretary General staff has met six times with the Bedein Center staff and has stressed that the only power to change UNRWA policy rests with the donor nations.

The time has come to organize a task force that would expose UNRWA incitement to genocide, while promoting a humanitarian solution to resettle the Arab refugees under conditions of dignity.

Six Policy Challenges, to Guide UNRWA Policy Reform

6. COGAT: Israel Civil Administration

COGAT- the Israel civil administration, mandated to promote Israel’s interests in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, allows Palestinian Arabs affiliated with terror groups to build anywhere, regardless of the law. COGAT facilitates Pay for Slay, PBC, PA schools, & UNRWA.

Moreover, COGAT allows Arab terrorist organizations to thrive, while subjugating Jewish life in Judea and Samaria.The time has come to organize a task force to challenge COGAT policies.

David Bedein
David Bedein is an MSW community organizer and an investigative journalist.   In 1987, Bedein established the Israel Resource News Agency at Beit Agron to accompany foreign journalists in their coverage of Israel, to balance the media lobbies established by the PLO and their allies.   Mr. Bedein has reported for news outlets such as CNN Radio, Makor Rishon, Philadelphia Inquirer, Los Angeles Times, BBC and The Jerusalem Post, For four years, Mr. Bedein acted as the Middle East correspondent for The Philadelphia Bulletin, writing 1,062 articles until the newspaper ceased operation in 2010. Bedein has covered breaking Middle East negotiations in Oslo, Ottawa, Shepherdstown, The Wye Plantation, Annapolis, Geneva, Nicosia, Washington, D.C., London, Bonn, and Vienna. Bedein has overseen investigative studies of the Palestinian Authority, the Expulsion Process from Gush Katif and Samaria, The Peres Center for Peace, Peace Now, The International Center for Economic Cooperation of Yossi Beilin, the ISM, Adalah, and the New Israel Fund.   Since 2005, Bedein has also served as Director of the Center for Near East Policy Research.   A focus of the center's investigations is The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). In that context, Bedein authored Roadblock to Peace: How the UN Perpetuates the Arab-Israeli Conflict - UNRWA Policies Reconsidered, which caps Bedein's 28 years of investigations of UNRWA. The Center for Near East Policy Research has been instrumental in reaching elected officials, decision makers and journalists, commissioning studies, reports, news stories and films. In 2009, the center began decided to produce short movies, in addition to monographs, to film every aspect of UNRWA education in a clear and cogent fashion.   The center has so far produced seven short documentary pieces n UNRWA which have received international acclaim and recognition, showing how which UNRWA promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence in their education'   In sum, Bedein has pioneered The UNRWA Reform Initiative, a strategy which calls for donor nations to insist on reasonable reforms of UNRWA. Bedein and his team of experts provide timely briefings to members to legislative bodies world wide, bringing the results of his investigations to donor nations, while demanding reforms based on transparency, refugee resettlement and the demand that terrorists be removed from the UNRWA schools and UNRWA payroll.   Bedein's work can be found at: and A new site,, will be launched very soon.
