Kuwait News Agency

Israel stopped supplying Palestinian terriories with petroleum products because of Palestinian past due energy bills, said Sunday chief of the Palestinian public bureau for petroleum Mahmoud Al-Bader.

In a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA), Al-Bader denied any political reason behind the halt on petroleum supplies to Palestinian lands, stressing that the only reason was a Palestinian check worth about USD 25 million that the company could not cash because of insufficient funds in the Palestinian account.

Al-Bader said the Israeli company that exported petroleum products to Palestinian lands notified the Palestinian Authority (PA) that it could not continue supplying Palestinian lands, after the official Palestinian check bounced due to insufficient fund.

Continued....


In yet another draconian action Israel has stopped the supply of petrolium products to the Palestinians.

Long denied an alternative they have been at the mercy of Israel.

Now that Israel is stealing their tax money the Palestinians have no way of paying, and no one else to buy from.

I wonder if they would turn it back on if the bill were paid.

errrr.... in that case I will call my bank and demand they cease their "draconian" ways because they won't let me write a check for a ferrari....

Cash is cash and personally I have never made a public statement saying my bank and all it's employees should be wiped from the planet for daring to exist. And yet they still forbid me from paying amounts I don't have with checks...

If you're going to go anti zionist peeps at least pretend to be rational and/or have a real complaint. every day in the US people get their heat electricity or w/e cut off because they don't write a valid check.

WHY SHOULD WE CARE?

THIS is non NEWS to the tenth power....

Please take your propogandizing elsewhere.

Indeed, el Lumpo. This happens every day across the world- people don't pay their bills, so service is stopped.

Headline should read "Israelis refuse to give Palestinians free petroleum".

What isn't ever mentioned by the Great Propaganda Machine of ATS is who pays for the Palestinian electric bill.
Is it;
A- The Arab Neighbors
B- The PA
C- Santa Clause (No, he would be kidnapped for ransom like the Pro-Palestinian activists are)
D- Israel

You guessed Israel? dingdingding, what do we have forthe correct answer, Johnny? That's right, the Israeli tax payers! Let's not mention that!

Worse than a non-issue, trying to turn not paying one's bills into a cause for the perpetrator. Tsk-Tsk. I suppose even the Israeli private companies should carry them now, huh?

This doesnt suprise me, jews using more underhand tactics to attack already opressed people... Lets see, Israel takes tax from people they have no right to, then cuts off petrol supplies when the Palestinians cant afford to pay, how neighborly of them. Why is it the jews claim the be the victims all the time but make not attempts of peace, you think if you was trying to find peace you would show kind gestures to them, not bomb there children and steal there money.

Perhaps the Palestinian officials that squandered the meager sum of US$ 700 million in national funds and foreign aid can ‘pony-up’ for the shortage. Or, at least according to Hamas, yet the preliminary reports have all the ear marks of a political conspiracy, odd?

"Draconian" is relative to a particular perspective.
The world works on economics, not charity.
You fail to pay your bills or your rent and "draconian" measures will soon follow.
IMHO, "draconian" is when Hamas was voted in as a Palestinian political representative of the people, for which it cares very little about.




Long denied an alternative they have been at the mercy of Israel.

The above is nothing more than poetry in motion.




Now that Israel is stealing their tax money the Palestinians have no way of paying, and no one else to buy from.

Yes, of course, Israel is always stealing something or doing something wrong; the Palestinians are never in the wrong.
But hey, ArchAngel, with Hamas now in charge, Iran will gladly pump money and petro to the Palestinians. You seemingly forgot that when you decreed that the helpless and innocent Palestinians have "no one else to buy from," huh?





I wonder if they would turn it back on if the bill were paid.

Self-evident what the answer would be, ArchAngel.
Your simply stroking and peddling Palestinian or pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel propaganda, like a good lil' boy scout.

And thats the point the Zionist Front refuses to acknowledge.

They can't pay because Israel is stealing their tax money.

In violation of the Paris accords in a criminal act against millions of already oppressed people.

Those who would justify it have some heavy Karma waiting for them....

AA, you going to answer the other points made here or are you going to just ignore them for the answers that better fit your agenda. I had my cell phone cut off last month because my payment was late. This is what happens in the real world when you dont pay your bills, you lose the privelidge of having whatever it is you arent paying for. Nothing in this world is free, on any level. It looks like this may be a self inflicted problem, with the $700 million missing from their treasury, dont blame Israel, blame the Palestinian leadership. But hey just remember everytime something bad happens to the Palestinians, its ok, just blame Israel.

Don't forget about it was the Israelis that took the Palestinian's land in the first place, which automatically included the power plants that originally belonged to the Arabs, then later strip them off of their riches and wealth so now they can't pay the bill.

The money never went to the ‘people’ in the first place!

The PA has been claiming this “we can’t pay our bills” for decades...

...despite being the largest single recipient of international aid in the world; also with UNRWA providing and running the schools, primary care facilities and providing food and other financial aid (along with a score of other agencies). USAID can not keep programs for the refugees seeded because of the corruption and lack of rule of law.

Forbid one should ever look at or mention the thievery and corruption of the Palestinian government....and the PA would never 'starve' its own people and blame the Jews...

Here’s a beginning: (Arafat nay be dead, but his associates aren't)

Arafat's Billions

An example article: (one)


He noted that one former suspect — Palestinian TV chief Hisham Miki who was killed by gunmen in 2001 — was believed to have stolen $23 million in public funds, and that his London apartment was seized during the investigation.

Are you kidding me?
The only power plants on Israeli land were built by the British or the Israelis.
The Israelis didn't rob the Palestinians of their wealth either.
They were always poor.

ROFL!

You gotta be kidding me?! Arab power plants?! In 1948? Ya, maybe...if they ran on goat power and produced falafel as a by-product. Do you actually know what that land was like in 1948? Not that much different from biblical times, with a few finished roads.

Most of the Arabs who left those lands in 1948 did so willingly, at the behest of their Arab neighbors, who called for them to leave the land of Israel. The Arabs leaders figured that after their quick campaign against the Isaelis was over, these people could return to Israel and take over what was left after the invasion. Too bad for them things didn't go as planned.

The funny thing that nobody either remembers or ever seems to mention is this: in 1948 there were about 870K Jews living in Arab nations, like Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, etc. When the Israeli War of 1948 broke out, what do you think the Arabs did to all these Jews? One has to conduct but a cursory Google search to learn that these Jews were murdered, prosecuted, and forcibly expelled from their homes for no other reason other than being jews. What did Israel do with the approximately 650K jews who suddenly arrived at their doorstep? Welcomed them with open arms and made them citizens. And of the approximately 500K Arabs who were "expelled" from Israel, what did their Arab neighbors do (you know, the ones who prodded them to leave Israel in the first place)? You guess it! Threw them into squalid refugee camps and used them as political bagaining chips.

So basically, in 1948 you had this almost-even exchange of populations: Arabs jews who have been persecuted for hundreds of years being forcibly exiled to Israel, after being stripped of all their wealth and property, and being welcomed as long-lost bretheren in Israel. And on the other hand you have Israel Arabs, being convinced to voluntarily "evacuate" Israel in a prelude to war (and there were many Israelis who begged them to stay), who took everthing they could carry with them. Even exchange of peoples, yet uneven treatment in the end.

Power plants. Gimme a break. The Palestinians ought to be terrorizing the Jordanians and Syrians, because after all, those are the people who have been screwing them since 1948.

What part of "private company" do you not understand? You really seem to think that even a private company, who must make a profit to stay in business, should write off a bad million dollar check? Hey, do me a favor. Loan me a thousand dollars. I'll write you a check next week to pay it back, and when the bank talks to you about that check, go scream about the United States and leave me out of it!

I am sorry, but this kind of IGNORANCE is more than i can stand, you and AA clearly are closed minded on this topic.

It is almost funny to me that hmmm, they didn't pay, so the services were cut off.

Welcome to the real world. It happens to everyone that way. If i had no money, the gas station would not let me pump gas.

As for Isreal not giving money to a group of people who are CLERARLY A terrorist organization (Hamas) who readily admits sending people to MURDER old people, women and children on purpose. They still will not even accept that Israel should even exist or that thwey should/will not do any more Terrorist murdering-which means they will do more.

Frankly I would like to see Israel declare that the palistians and Hamas have no right to live or exist.

If Hamas wants to openly or not support terrorists the solution is simple.

Kick out all the palistians out of Israel-they don't want to be there anyway.
create a 40-50 mile buffer zone inside their territories and not allow anything but flat level dirt to exist in that 50 miles.

This should be enough to protect Israel from those murders rockets. Of course, being the cowards they are, Hamas will move it's murdering forces to lebanon (it was the jewel of the area before the Musliums distroyed it) and shoot the rockets across the border while hidding behind woman and children, hidding in schools.

They are animals and need to be treated as such-IMO! When they want to act like humans, they can be treated as such.

As far as money and oil, what about all the supporters of these terrorists-Iran, Syria.......surely they can provide money and oil to their "Muslium Brothers".

EUF, it was NEVER PLISTAIN land...EVER. It was Israel. Then they were militarly removed and nomands came in and took what they found-a prebuilt city and land.

Fast forward to after WWII, the land was owned and controled byENGLAND!!!
and some territory was Jordanian. If they really want the land to go back to it's propper owner, it should all be Israel, or English and Jordanian(jordan lost this land in a war they had against Isarel-Jordan, Syria, Egypt and anothe- i forget, had all there troops, planes, tanks and missles all on Israels border-must have been just for a parade-ya right. Israel saw this and was able to distroy enough of there men and equipment to save themselves.

Any assertion made that levels such unfounded claims needs to be referenced or sourced, something that you, ArchAngel, freely do not do when making such unfounded assertions. In not readily supplying such references and/or sources, your message looses validity and merit, only worthy to those who follow the anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian dogmatic mantra's that you adhere to. Accordingly, care to back up your above quoted assertions with well sourced valid references sometime soon?




Those who would justify it have some heavy Karma waiting for them....

Since when has 'karma' been introduced into the pro-Palestinian boy scouts?
'Karma' has nada-nothing to do with this, though increasingly, it may have something to do with you.
