International aid funds Hamas-linked police

September 27, 2010

Elder of Ziyon came up with an interesting analysis last week of salaries for “security forces” (who overlap with the terrorist population) in Gaza.  Using World Bank figures as a starting point, Elder of Ziyon observed that “between $250M and $600M of PA budget seems to go to Hamas terrorists.”  Take a look.

Earlier EoZ revealed that 60 percent of the Palestinian Authority’s budget is directed into Hamas-controlled Gaza.  The PA receives its money from taxes and international aid, and Reuters reported in March that the West Bank-based PA “still pays salaries to government employees in the Gaza Strip.”

What a mess.
