Israeli officials have confirmed the implementation of a new round of sanctions against Palestinians today, nominally to punish them for signing the Geneva Convention and other UN agency accords.
The new sanctions include the revocation of building permits, and the authorization to install a cellphone network in the occupied West Bank, as well as freezing the funds belonging to Palestinians but held in Israeli banks. There will also be travel restrictions on all Palestinians above and beyond the usual ones.
In addition to the funds being frozen, Israel has also announced its intention to permanently increase the portion of the Palestinian tax money it seizes monthly to pay for electricity, a moot point since Israel often ends up seizing the whole thing on some other pretext.
The Palestinian Authority is said to be seeking emergency funding from the Arab League in response to the move, saying their financial coffers, always on the verge of being empty, are in even more trouble than usual because of the Israeli seizures, and they may miss salary payments to security forces.

Language is inadequate to describe this. What a disgrace.
"GOD BLESS AMERICA" for making the Zionist strong
The atrocities that the Palestinians endure at the hands of their Zionist jailers is far worse than what was done to the South Africans Mr Kerry`s choice of words were far from what the average Palestinian lives on a daily basis ie: destruction of homes/murder/ starvation /denied the right to live as humans on their own land /destroying olive trees on and on and on.
The simple truth is Israel do not want peace but all of Palestine and they are willing to wipe out the Palestinian people to achieve this just as the yanks did to the native americans.
And here you have Abbas apologizing for the holocaust, a crime the Palestinians has absolutely nothing to do with. Abbas you are a disgrace to the Palestinians cause, you have spit on the graves of your fallen comrade who have fought the apartheid state of Israel and died so you can enjoy what little freedom the Zionist's extend to you. Hope you do the right thing and resign.
I don't know but suspect he was probably very well compensated by those who wish the Palestinians to remain where they are.
…..Those that were also murdered by the Zionist…..Abbas: "It's better to live one day and died a hero than to live a hundred years a damn coward."
The Israeli Ambassador to the US was on NPR this morning. The lying murderous propaganda he spewed was appalling while the NPR lickspittle nodded and fed softballs to let the masses know they are on AIPACs side.
