No Way Palestinian Authority Runs Gaza Again

JERUSALEM, Israel — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeated his opposition Saturday night time to a proposal by U.S. President Joe Biden to revive management of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority (PA) as soon as Hamas is faraway from energy and destroyed.

On Saturday, Biden printed an op-ed within the Washington Post wherein he supported Israel, although as soon as once more joining the Israeli trigger to the Ukrainian one, placing Hamas and Russia in the identical class as enemies of the United States.

Biden additionally reiterated his support for a “two-state solution” as the one reply to the battle, and added: “As we strive for peace, Gaza and the West Bank should be reunited under a single governance structure, ultimately under a revitalized Palestinian Authority, as we all work toward a two-state solution.”

However, Netanyahu emphatically rejected that concept.

“In Gaza, after the destruction of Hamas, and for a long time thereafter, there will not be a regime that encourages terror, that teaches terror, that funds terror — that also indoctrinates about the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews — this will not be,” Netanyahu vowed at a press convention on Saturday night time.

He was alluding to the PA’s report of encouraging terror, together with the follow of “pay-to-slay,” wherein the PA offers stipends to terrorists in Israeli prisons, and pensions to the households of terrorists killed by Israel.

Despite the lack of U.S. help below the Taylor Force Act, which President Donald Trump signed in 2018 to ban taxpayer {dollars} from funding the PA so long as it continues “pay-to-slay,” the PA has not modified its coverage.

The PA additionally continues naming public parks and monuments after terrorists, and Palestinian instructional supplies are ceaselessly crammed with anti-Israel and antisemitic propaganda.

The PA ran Gaza from 1994 to 2007, when it was ousted by Hamas in a violent coup. Rocket assaults towards Israeli civilians started years earlier than it was ousted, and particularly from 2001 onwards, regardless of a unilateral withdrawal of Israeli troopers and civilians in 2005.
