A Palestinian terrorist who murdered a Jewish family is now entitled to $3,100 a month from the Palestinian government, which is being subsidized by Canada, according to the National Post.
On July 21, 19-year-old terrorist Omar al-Abed broke into the residence of a Jewish family in Halamish, a settlement in the West Bank, and proceeded to slaughter Yosef Salomon, his daughter Chaya and his son Elad.
As a consequence, the terrorist is now entitled to be paid upward of $3,120 per month, courtesy of Palestinian and Canadian taxpayers.
Israelis are branding the settlement “pay-for slay” and claim that the Palestinian government has made terrorism the most lucrative job in the West Bank.
Critics say the Canadian government is sponsoring the payout through their enrollment in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).
The UNRWA finances the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), an organization that has been making financial payments to Palestinian terrorists since 1965, when Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat established the Society for the Care of Families of Martyrs (SAMED).
Although Canada ceased payments to the UNRWA in 2010 under then Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s administration, the Liberal government restored funding in 2016 under the Trudeau administration, which committed $25 million to the organization.
In al-Abed’s case, the Palestinian Authority (PA) funneled funds through the National Palestinian Fund (NPF), which then transferred the funds to prisoners, released convicts, and deceased terrorists, including al-Abed.
