Lapid is Offered $200K to Prove PLO Renounced Terror


Finance Minister Yair Lapid was challenged to back up his statements Saturdayto the Wall Street Journal that Hamas could be negotiated with, and gave the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as an example of a "former" terror group. 

Jewish philanthropist William Langfan called Lapid out on Monday, offering him a $200,000 contribution if he could prove the PLO is no longer a terror organization. In a letter to the editor, Langfan wrote "I respectfully suggest that Lapid read Article 33 of the PLO 1968 Charter and ask himself where and when the Palestinian National Council (PNC) voted to modify or annul one article of their Charter."
