Bennett Calls for End to Terror Salaries

By Ido Ben Porat, Gil Ronen, INN

Bennett

Economics Minister and Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett announced Wednesday that he intends to lead an effort to stop Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) from continuing the policy of payment of generous monthly salaries to convicted terrorists jailed in Israeli prisons.

“Did you murder Jews? Have you abducted children? Get up to 12,000 shekels a month from Abu Mazen!,” wrote Bennett sarcastically on his Facebook page. “Meet Abu Mazen’s ‘preferred employment’ track: murderers, terrorists and child abductors. We have preferred status for gas station attendants, Abu Mazen gives it to those who pour fuel on the fires of death and destruction.”

 

According to a report presented by Bennett, a terrorist serving 5-10 years makes 4,000 shekels a month; a terrorist serving 10-15 years makes 6,000 shekels, a terrorist serving 25-30 years makes 10,000 shekels, and terrorists who are serving over 30 years make 12,000 shekels a month.

“In addition, every Palestinian prisoner in Israel receives 400 shekels for private expenses, twice a year,” wrote Bennett. “There is also a bonus for married terrorists and a special addition for children. In Palestinian terms, these are huge salaries.”

“About 4,000 freed prisoners continued to receive salaries after their release,” he added. “The ‘preferred employment’ also has a pension. And so, Ziyad Awad, the murderer of Baruch Mizrahi z”l who was released in the Shalit deal, received a salary from the Palestinian Authority during his first imprisonment, was released and received a freed terrorist’s salary, and now his conditions will again be improved in Abu Mazen’s ‘preferred employment’ scheme – after all, he murdered a Jew and has returned to prison. Amazing.”

Bennett claimed that the funding for the salaries comes from European states and other countries, “which turn a blind eye and allow their money to reach terrorists in a roundabout path, whether through the Authority or through the PLO. Whoever abducts children on their way home from school knows he has nothing to lose: at the end of the road, there awaits a warm embrace from the Palestinian Authority and a good salary.”

“The system is simple,” Bennett explained. “With one hand, Abu Mazen ‘condemns’ the abduction, of course, and with the other, which hands out cash for terrorism, he encourages it.”

Bennett did not say how he intends to stop the payment of terror salaries and predicted that the legal establishment will say that the matter is “problematic” and that there are “legal obstacles” to blocking the payments. “But I do not know a less legal matter than the encouragement of terror,” he added.

    “You’re as helpless as they are”

    “I control the game”

    Sometimes you do

    — but only because THEY don’t see the game.

    ”Women DO tend to vote for the more physically attractive candidate. (If most candidates were women, then, yes, I’ve little doubt that most men would ALSO vote for the more attractive candidate. Stupid is as stupid does.) However, good looks and good judgment don’t always arrive on the same train.

    “After the 19th Amendment [Women’s Suffrage, 1920] passed, women turned out in droves to vote — and they (effectively) ELECTED the very next President: a very attractive man INDEED, who went by the name of — Warren G. Harding.”

    “Lot more to that election then Harding’s good looks.” “

    “Not for the WOMEN of the country, alas, who were exercising their franchise for the first time — and for whom the novelty of the experience brought out the childish side of many if not most of them…”

    “Google ‘Teapot Dome’ Sweetie !”

    “Actually, the Teapot Dome Scandal (nor any of the other ones connected w/ his administration) had NOTHING to do with that election. Teapot Dome occurred WHILE (and not until) Harding was IN the White House.”

    “Don’t tell the men behind the Teapot Dome didn’t know Harding was easily corrupted.”

    No evidence of that. The scandal emerged long after Harding’s death — and while he did make a practice of appointing major supporters to cabinet & other posts, there’s no indication that this particular affair ever reflected corruption on Harding’s part. It was his Interior Secretary, Albert Fall, who was convicted of bribery.

    At any rate, in alluding to the scandals associated with Harding’s administration, you’re making my point (as well as that of your loud-mouthed acquaintance at the Western Memorabilia Show)

    — that women elected to the presidency a pretty candidate, not a prudent one.

    Teapot Dome occurred WHILE (and not until) Harding was IN the White House.

    “Met a man who just HATES Perry,but I said, ‘he’s soooooooooo good lookin’…”

    “You KNOW that’s a dumb-assed reason for putting the reins of political power into somebody’s hands. . . .”

    “The man was a loud mouth know it as only some Texans can be and I wanted to ‘tweak’ him.”

    Obviously.

    “A lot of Evangelicals regard LDS as a non-Christian cult, because of their added narrative & other writings.”

    “They’re fighting for converts!”

    Fighting WHOM for converts? — the Mormons???

    Evangelicals have long regarded LDS as ‘non-Christian’; it’s not a recent policy for them.

    “If he allowed your remarks to upset him, it was a mistake on his part to lose his cool.”

    “Upsetting men is my chief delight in life!!!!”

    That’s how you convey your contempt for them.

    But, frankly, I think YOU’re just as compulsive about tempting them to take the bait as THEY are in taking it.

    — You’re as helpless as they are.

    “Men are easy.”

    Weaklings.

    ” Women DO tend to vote for the more physically attractive candidate. (If most candidates were women, then, yes, I’ve little doubt that most men would ALSO vote for the more attractive candidate. Stupid is as stupid does.)
    However, good looks and good judgment don’t always arrive on the same train.

    “Lot more to that election then Harding’s good looks.” “

    Not for the WOMEN of the country, alas, who were exercising their franchise for the first time — and for whom the novelty of the experience brought out the childish side of many if not most of them. Harding catered to women’s vanity. He had supported the Amendment. He had a handsome presence & was more photogenic than his Democrat opponent, the Ohio governor, James M. Cox (whose running mate was the Assistant Secty of the Navy, FDR).

    This was also the “first modern campaign to use the power of Hollywood and Broadway stars, who traveled to Marion [OH] for photo opportunities with Harding and his wife. Al Jolson, Lillian Russell, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford were among the luminaries to make the pilgrimage to his house in central Ohio. Business icons Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone also lent their cachet to the campaign.”

    Is this all starting to sound familiar?

    “Google ‘Teapot Dome’ Sweetie !”

    Actually, the Teapot Dome Scandal (nor any of the other ones connected w/ his administration) had NOTHING to do with that election.

    Teapot Dome occurred WHILE (and not until) Harding was IN the White House.

    “Since when are mormons christians???”

    “Since the LDS believe in the divinity of Jesus”

    You’re correct, of course.

    What’s more, THEY regard themselves as Christians.

    A lot of Evangelicals regard LDS as a non-Christian cult, because of their added narrative & other writings.

    “Live around the Saints all my life.”

    Had one for a housemate myself a few decades ago; still see him around town from time-to-time.

    “Met a man who just HATES Perry,but I said, ‘he’s soooooooooo good lookin’…”

    You KNOW that’s a dumb-assed reason for putting the reins of political power into somebody’s hands. . . .

    “I said Perry was ‘good lookin,’ the man I was speaking too almost passed out. All he could say was, ‘you women that’s how you choose some one to vote for’ and walked off.”

    If he allowed your remarks to upset him, it was a mistake on his part to lose his cool.

    But he did have a point. Women DO tend to vote for the more physically attractive candidate. (If most candidates were women, then, yes, I’ve little doubt that most men would ALSO vote for the more attractive candidate. Stupid is as stupid does.)

    However, good looks and good judgment don’t always arrive on the same train.

    Warren G. Harding.

    If the name doesn’t ring a bell for you, copy/paste it into your Google box. . . .

    “If I ever heard a man calling another man ‘Good Lookin’ I get the hives and run for the hills.”

    Not very secure in your own manhood, are you?

    You ASSUME the only reason he would note another man’s pleasing appearance is sexual attraction.

    — But why should that BE assumed?

    “Some things are not done or said.”

    Not done or said by cowards.

    Since the LDS believe in the divinity of Jesus, Live around the Saints all my life. My Dad [a Western Historian of some renown] love the Saints. We travelled all around Utah following their history. Had LDS neighbors at one time, their Patriarch [ Grandpa Mormon I called him] and I use to discuses religion. But TX thought Gramps was after more then a recruit. Any how Dad loved Utah, said when he was inn Utah he was , ” At last a gentile”.

    Prepare to get your backside in a crack, Boy. You fuss about Christians, but so far the only politicians or celebrates demanding action on the behalf of the kidnapped schoolboys are Christians, Cruz, Huckabee and Beck.

    Huckabee for all his pro Israel credentials is also a primary missionary and supporter of Missionaries in Israel and Beck is a Mormon who also supports missionaries.

    If their support is the cost of their supporting missionaries I prefer to do without their support.

    Don’t know enough about Cruz to offer any criticism.

    Since when are mormons christians??? 😛

    “It already exists. They call it christianity, specializing in spiritual virginity.”

    Doesn’t say Christianity (or anything else) does THAT.

    So Abbas WAS among those targeted?

    — That’s a Yes-or-No question. Calls for a Yes-or-No answer.

    “We could have used killer dweller to take care of business when we needed it done

    Really? — thought you said you didn’t want me in — or any other way connected with — “your” country.

    “… but he was either in jail or selling wine and was not available.”

    Not at that time. During the late 70’s, I was cheffing it up in restaurants when I wasn’t learning about diesel mechanics.

    “I thought you christians were into turning the other cheek?”

    Another metaphor — here, an image intended to convey a forbearance to resent. If your mind is uncluttered with resentment, you’ll have the prudence to know with certainty what kind of response is rationally & objectively called for.

    Maybe soi-disant christians ARE (like PresentCompany) into taking the “turn-the-other-cheek” metaphor literally.

    But I’ve never made any claim to being a ‘christian.’

    Nor did Yeshua haNitzri.

    I just got this in the mail. Opinion?

    Go Dutch . . . But Why Wait Until 2015?

    The Netherlands, where six percent
    of the population is now Muslim, is
    scrapping multiculturalism.

    The Dutch government says it will
    abandon the long-standing model of
    multiculturalism that has encouraged
    Muslim immigrants to create a
    parallel society within the Netherlands ..

    A new integration bill, which Dutch
    Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner
    presented to parliament on June 16,
    reads:
    “The government shares the social
    dissatisfaction over the multicultural
    society model and plans to shift priority
    to the values of the Dutch people”.

    In the new integration system, the
    values of the Dutch society play a
    central role.
    With this change, the government
    steps away from the model of a
    multicultural society.

    The letter continues: “A more
    obligatory integration is justified
    because the government also demands
    that from its own citizens.”

    It is necessary because otherwise the
    society gradually grows apart and
    eventually no one feels at home anymore
    in the Netherlands.
    The new integration policy will place
    more demands on immigrants.
    For example, immigrants will be required
    to learn the Dutch language, and the
    government will take a tougher approach
    to immigrants who ignore Dutch values
    or disobey Dutch law.

    The government will also stop
    offering special subsidies for Muslim
    immigrants because, according to
    Donner;
    “It is not the government’s job to
    integrate immigrants.”
    (How bloody true).

    The government will introduce new
    legislation that outlaws forced
    marriages and will also impose
    tougher measures against Muslim
    immigrants who lower their chances
    of employment by the way they dress.

    More specifically, the government
    imposed a ban on face-covering,
    Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2014.

    Holland has done that whole liberal
    thing, and realized – maybe too late –
    that creating a nation of tribes, will kill
    the nation itself.
    The future of Australia, the UK, USA
    and Canada may well be read here.

    I live in grassland, but we have trees and flowers. Been an average summer. I am told NJ and up-state NY are beautiful. I rather like the treeless plains, one can see forever. Did youever watch the TV movie “Lonesome Dove”.

  26. @ honeybee:
    Not too hot in NY. Yes we have flowers and trees. People take good care of their gardens and many shady trees in my neighborhood but nothing compare to the wonderful place where you live. In New Jersey you have does and bears that lately have been invading people’s gardens. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, upstate NY and Connecticut the farther you get from the City the more beautiful nature is.
    I’m sending you something to laugh. Which one of this ladies are you going to be?

    I went for a walk. Saw a doe in the middle of the road, she watched me for while and then lazily crossed the road. Don’t know Yamit82 is, I teased him about his former girl-friends yesterday and maybe he is sensitive. I want to post him because I watched an interesting program last night on Israeli ” Black Opps” . How NY hot, do you have trees and flowers?

  28. yamit82 where are you? and, where is HB because whenever you post something she is right behind you. Where are you guys?

  29. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:
    Unfortunately it is what it is. The vermin is at war with us and Israel acting only defensively. Recognizing we are at war and hitting the enemy where it hurts. We do not want to be liked. We must be respected. A few days ago I think it was Bethesda Dog suggested to cut the electricity to the enemy. I agree. If the vermin have enough resources to build tunnels they must invest in their own electric grid. They get electricity, water, education and more than they need for free and then, keep sending rockets that kill our children. We are at war let’s act accordingly.
    SHmuel, The shul where I go have un rabino Argentino. Muy majo por cierto.
    Forget about the Oslo Accords. It was one of the worse documents in Israeli history although not the only one. We are suffering its consequences. What is done we cannot go back and fix it unless we go openly to war. We must look at the future and try to neutralize the left. Israel is for the Jews.
    The vermin in jail should not receive any benefits. On the contrary they should pay us for the upkeep and maintenance of these bastards. What kind of punishment is to keep them with salaries and even benefits? What country has ever done such a thing for the enemy?

  30. It is not amazing, it is the way it has been since Oslo.
    The unJewish government… sees them as proxies that cause harm, death, mayhem on behalf of the unJewish plans. The murderous beasts live like VIP’s while in purported prison. The unJews allow them wide berth and privileges.
    SOlution?
    Only if the people lances the boil and force the Judenrat out.
