The Palestinian Authority is conventionally regarded as far less militant than Hamas. With that in mind:
Almost $1b., about 28 percent of the [Palestinian Authority] budget, will be spent on defense, compared to 16% for education and 10% for medical services. In other words, a bulk of the PA’s funds will not be used for schooling, health or infrastructure, but for procuring weapons and maintaining a massive military structure.
Odd how a “government which is not officially at war with Israel, and has no formal army” has opted to invest so much money in militarization. [Emphasis added]. Where is the money coming from?
To maintain their military budget, and payments to prisoners, the PA will need over $1b. in foreign aid. [...] In essence, the world’s most advanced democracies will be helping the Palestinian government advance their militancy and tyranny.
The article, by Nitsana Darshan-Leitner at the Jerusalem Post, also notes that some $60 million a year is to be spent to “reward terrorism against Israel,” in the form of “payments to the families of Palestinian Arab terrorists incarcerated in Israeli prisons.” (On links between foreign aid and Palestinian militancy, see also this post from a while back.)
