Speaking at a PLO Central Council meeting, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that the Palestinian government will continue to pay salaries to the families of martyrs, prisoners, and wounded Palestinians, even if salaries are subtracted from Palestinian money held by Israel. He said that the families are sacred, and stated: "Even if we only have one cent left, it should go to them and not to the living." Abbas also denied the claim that there are only 40,000 Palestinian refugees left, and said that today there are six million Palestinian refugees. Abbas' remarks aired on Palestine TV on October 28, 2018. President Mahmoud Abbas: I say it so that everybody can hear: The salaries of our martyrs, our prisoners, and our wounded are where we draw the line. They try to put the pressure on us using any means possible. They are still exerting pressure, saying that we must not make these payments. Even if they eventually subtract the sum that we pay to the martyrs from our money that is being held by them, we will not [cross] that red line, and we told them so. This has been a sacred issue for us since 1965. The martyrs and their families are sacred. The wounded, the prisoners – we must pay them all. Even if we only have one cent left, it should go to them and not to the living. https://www.memri.org/tv/palestinia...ilies-martyrs-six-million-refugees/transcript Guess from where the millions the Palestinians pay murderers and terrorists? You're right. The stupid European taxpayer. The Palestinians are sucking up European tax revenues disgrace.
