Israel May Use ‘Financial Retaliation’ against PA


Israel may freeze tax revenues for the Palestinian Authority in retaliation for its pushing the United Nations Human Rights Committee to investigate Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, according to Voice of Israel government radio. The Netanyahu government also is considering freezing cooperation with the PA for joint business initiatives as a way to get across the message that the PA cannot have its cake and eat it at the same time by working against Israel while enjoying the taxes Israel collects for it at crossings into the Palestinian Authority.
