❌ Pay to Slay: The PA paid almost $300K to Muslim terrorists behind the Sbarro massacre
17 years ago a Muslim terrorist entered the Sbarro pizza shop in downtown Jerusalem, detonated his suicide vest and murdered 15 people.
The murdered in the August 9, 2001 terror attack included 7 children as well as a couple and three of their children, an American citizen and a Brazilian citizen. 130 people were injured.
The suicide bomber was Izz al-Din Al-Masri. His family has received $50,124 as a reward for his suicide bombing.
The terrorist who planned the attack and brought the bomber to Sbarro was Ahlam Tamimi, from the Tamimi clan of Muslim terrorists.
Tamimi was arrested in September 2001 and received 16 life sentences. In 2011, Tamimi was released as part of the terrorists release to free Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit from his Hamas captors. For her time in prison she has been rewarded by the PA with salary payments of at least $52,681.
The suicide belt was built by Hamas bomb- builder Abdallah Barghouti, from the Barghouti clan of Muslim terrorists.
Barghouti was arrested in May 2003, and received 67 life sentences – 15 of them for building the bomb used to murder the people in Sbarro. He has received salary payments from the PA of at least $191,526.
By September 2018, the PA will have cumulatively rewarded Barghouti, Tamimi, and the family of Al-Masri with at least $294,332.
Earlier this year, Israel passed a law to deduct ‘Pay to Slay’ terrorists’ salaries from the Palestinian Authority.
According to the law’s sponsors, the PA paid terrorists over NIS 4 billion over the past four years, with NIS 1.2 billion being paid in the last year alone.
The bill says that welfare payments paid out by the PA to Muslim terrorists in Israeli prison and to their families, as well as the families of terrorists eliminated during terror attacks, must be deducted from tax revenues Israel transfers annually to the administrative body.
The money withheld in this way would instead go into a fund designated to help victims of terror attacks.
