Skip to comments.Fayyad Warns: No Tax Money - No More PA

The Palestinian Authority may soon fail financially and cease to exist, its prime minister warned on Thursday.
Salam Fayyad warned that if Israel does not resume the transfer of tax revenues it collects for the PA, the entity will collapse economically and thus cease to exist. Already now, Fayyad claimed, the PA cannot pay salaries to its employees.
Channel 10 News reported that Fayyad made the comments following a meeting with Norways Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre. According to the report, Fayyad said that the collapse of PA institutions is advancing rapidly toward the point at which they will stop operating.
We have no money, Fayyad was quoted as having said. Its not about donations or international assistance we receive, he added, blaming the Israeli decision to freeze the taxes it collects for the PA as being the reason for the impending collapse.
A recent World Bank report, while admitting that the PA is undergoing a financial crisis, said the crisis was primarily due to the lack of donor countries fulfilling their pledges to fork over billions of dollars to Ramallah.

Maybe the PA officials can draw on the stolen money that they have in Swiss bank accounts.
Amazing to me to find out that the enemy of Israel depends on funds from Israel to exist.
Why didn’t the Israeli’s cut off funds years ago?
The court of world opinion is going to divide along party lines and the shortest link to the next check.
How’s a bout each time a single missile is sent over from Gaza the tax remittance fund is set back to zero...and remains at zero for a month.
And while we are at it turn off the fu#king electricity and gas!
At last some good news! Happy Thanks Giving everyone.
If so, let's try cutting off the democraps.
I’m trying to see a downside here. Really, I am.
Look, let’s just cut through the bulls**t once and for all. Isn’t it time to just stamp out these cockroaches and put an end to their....and our.....misery?
Perhaps they need to tax themselves.
Perhaps they need to get aid from the Greeks
IT can't be that simple. (I can definitely be simple.)
If by “those cockroaches” you mean the PA upper echelons and true believers, and Hamas and PFLP and el Aqsa, et al., I’d say yes. But if you mean the Palis themselves, I’d say no. Just make an example out of these crumbums, or better yet help the Palis to do it themselves, and you’ll be surprised how cooperative the Palis will suddenly become. Offer them the option of citizenship in exchange for an oath of loyalty, and likely they’ll studiously ignore it to save their “dignity,” and secretly smile at how few take us up on it.
That is a sacred trust. Bismillah, we must guard it for future generations of our family.
For some strange insane reason this bit of information just tickles my funny bone.
Maybe they can join the EU. There’s an “entity” that is about to self-dissolve. When it does, they can declare it a Palestinian State and burn Vidal Sassoon (Jooo!) products in the streets of Paris to celebrate.
Nothing strange about it. It’s like seeing a house falling and hoping the wicked witch of the East doesn’t look up.
Don’t strain yourself.
I can see the soup kitchens now, “Is this soup halal?
