The cash-strapped Palestinian Authority on Wednesday said it was slashing by nearly one third the salaries of tens of thousands of government employees in the Gaza Strip who have been sitting idly since the rival Hamas militant group took over the coastal territory a decade ago.
The decision deepened the divide between the West Bank and Gaza two territories that the Palestinians hope to turn into an independent state and increased hardship in already impoverished Gaza.
This cut has worsened our situation. I dont know how I will get by until the end of the month. Shall I beg? said Rizq al-Haddad, a former maintenance worker at the Health Ministry. [ ]
The internationally backed Palestinian Authority, which is based in the West Bank, ordered all of its roughly 50,000 workers to step down after the Islamic militant group Hamas seized power in 2007. But it has continued to pay the salaries of the former policemen, teachers and civil servants like al-Haddad.

I just cackled.
I guess Obama’s unmarked planes of cash stopped showing up
[Rizq] Al-Haddad, a father of 10, supports his family on a salary of about 2,200 shekels, or $600, a month. That income will now drop by nearly $200 a month.More on the terrible situation of Al-Haddad. Maybe next time theyll vote against any Palestinian and vote for that state of Israel they were brainwashed to hate so much.
Our situation was desperate even before they made the cuts, he said in his dilapidated two-bedroom home. We barely bought thyme and bread for the kids, and we cant buy tomatoes because of the desperate situation.
Time to put an end to the PLO-pa terrorist gangsters once and for all. Get them out of Israel before they can murder more innocent people. Also hamas hezbellah and all the rest of the savage moslem scum.
Seems the Arabs of “Palestine” have a problem with illegal immigration taking jobs.
Does that include suicide bombers? Or will there families still receive the full amount promised?
Why does a little pissant place like that need tens of thousands of government employees?
So, buy a few tomato plants, or save a few tomato seeds and grow what you need.
From the leadership:
“We have to make sacrifices somewhere.
The price for new tires on the Benz went up, and you can’t believe how much a case of brandy costs now.”
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
What a shame./s
