Israel Halt Transfer Of Tax Revenues To Palestine

Sat Jan 03, 2015 10:16 pm

Israel to halt transfer of tax revenues to Palestinians following ICC bid

Israel plans to hold more than $127m collected on behalf of the Palestinians for the month of December; Erekat: Freezing tax revenues 'a war crime.'

Israel has decided to freeze the transfer of half a billion shekels (more than $127 million) in tax revenues collected on behalf of the Palestinians following the Palestinians' recent attempts to join the International Criminal Court, an Israeli official has told Haaretz.

There's more here in the WSJ.

I guess Israel isn't happy enough with stealing the Palestinian's lands, now they're stealing their money. Have the Jews no shame?

When Palestine seeks ICC or UN membership, nobody will get killed. But to the Israeli government, seeking statehood must be akin to terrorism. 

The descendants of those who screamed "We want a state!" in the 1940ies now forbid the same request to others. The entire world should have drawn a big, red line back then.

NO, I mean exactly what I wrote. The Jews have no shame. After all, isn't the Israeli Gov't moving closer and closer to actually defining themselves as a "Jewish State".

So let's see... a country that is going to declare itself a "jewish state" and I'm not allowed to call them jews. Hmmmmm, kinda a contradiction here, eh what?

Not in the context you were using. No matter how Israel defines itself, not all "Jews" are citizens of Israel or would-be citizens of any "Jewish state". Are all of the Jews is the world collectively taking this particular action you protest, no. Using your logic, it's OK to call all black people in the world "African Americans".

They threatened to do this, and as usual, Israel has lived up to its word.

Israeli's, around the world should outraged and protest at this latest move by Nethayanu and his Government, their Government.

What is Israel so possibly scared of ?

Why should it matter to Israel if Palestine becomes a state, wouldn't that be good, for both countries ?

Because they aren't all Jews? 25% of Israel's population is not Jewish. The rest are Muslim or Christian (or other).

But no worries - we are more than used to some people blaming all the world's problems on "the Jews".

Doesn't make your assertion logically correct. Are all the Jews in the world members of the Israeli government? I find it shocking I have to even explain this.

You probably should have thought about this a little deeper before going down this line of reasoning...

Consider this for a moment: You'll recall that the "Islamic State" is a thing...does that mean the rest of us can say "those Muslims have no shame"?

Even if that is true, it follows the logic of all Muslims being terrorists or all Germans being Nazi.

What the Israeli government is doing isn't a Jewish opinion, even if everyone making that decision are Jews

Whilst I whole heartedly condemn the actions of the Israeli government and believe the Palestinians should have a state I also think that labelling an entire religion based on the actions of a government is wrong. This works both ways mind you snd that labelling all Palestinians as terrorist based on the actions of their government is equally as wrong.

I think it just tells how people have accepted the fact that Middle Eastern Muslims aren't capable of forming stable, peaceful and democratic nations.Israeli Jews on the other hand are still seen as somewhat civilized people, thus people demand more democracy and tolerance from them than they demand from Middle Eastern Muslims.

So if you want to oppress people with different opinions, sexuality and religion just convert to Islam and move to Middle East, nobody will really mind as it's seen as part of your culture.

Personally I oppose this approach, I think people should be judged the same no matter what their religion is.

Quite simply, because Israel controls the land where the taxes are paid, that's why !

I would have thought that you, of all people should have known that FACT.

Little wonder Israel doesn't want to give the Palestinian statehood, then they'd' have to relinquish control of the taxes, there by losing control of the Palestinians

Seriously?! Besides this being patently antisemitic (and utterly moronic as a claim), it also hurts your own argument by fueling rightwing paranoia that anyone who criticizes Israel actually hates the Jews.

Then one has to repeat: just because there are antisemites who criticize Israel doesn't mean that criticizing Israel is antisemitic.

RE: Israel Halt Transfer Of Tax Revenues To Palestine

Mon Jan 05, 2015 11:59 am

The horrible and dastardly Israelis are going to withhold money from the Palestinians after they decided to take actions that they knew would provoke a reaction from the Israelis. This had been discussed numerous times and the Palestinians knew exactly what they were doing. It is a dance for public consumption.

The Palestinian authority will do what it always does – scream and shout oppression in the news while quietly taking a loan against the money that will quietly be restored in a few weeks because the US will pressure Israel to do so – as it has happed 2 or 3 times before. It is a show for the upcoming elections in Israel and another way for the Palestinian Authority to demonize Israel.

What really scares the Palestinians is if Israel used the confiscated money to pay off some of the debts that Palestinian Authority has in Israel – for medical treatment of its citizens in Israeli hospitals, electricity bought from the Israeli grid that was never paid for etc.

To my friend the Commodore – Please, for the love of God, proofread your posts. Any positive ideas you raise are lost in confusing “hear” with “here” and lead me to believe that you are challenged by spelling, how are you going to pick up on the delicate nuances of International Diplomacy.

What are the Palestinians doing?

a) Throw bombs, fire rockets, assasinations, causing loss of lives.
b) Send diplomats and seek membership in a civilian organization, causing no loss of lives.

if they chose a) : Sanction the Palestinians because it's wrong what they do.
if they chose b) : Sanction the Palestinians because it's wrong what they do.

What should be Palestinians do?

if b) is not possible, revert to a).

It's is so abso-fucking simple.

So - what do you want the Palestinians to do? Behaving civil, enter negotiations, send diplomats to improve the state of their country?

Or... something... else?

The behaviour of the Israeli government tells me that everything the Palestinians are doing, they're doomed. They're treating Palestinians like childrens, herding them like animals, but certainly not treating them in a civilized way.

who'd have thought it was a "public forum" Id never had guessed.

This thread is about....

"Israel Halt Transfer Of Tax Revenues To Palestine"

Is it unreasonable to expect posters to address the actual issue. Even just once....I don't think so !

Not really. This forum is provided to us by airliners.net, and we have to adhere to their rules. In regard to my or your free speech, airliners.net has absolutely no responsibilities. It is the government that must not interfere with your speech.


It seems that Israel is like a false god, an altar which the Israel fans preach to. To say that their country does something wrong is like offending their god and their beliefs. The Palestinians can't do anything right, they say, but at the same time they do not give a reason for that stance that permeates each and every of their postings.

What is the Government of Israel doing with these funds.

My understanding is that this money belongs to either the Palestinian Authority or individual Palestinians, not to Israel.

It will sure be interesting if/when the first ICC case charged by the Palestinians comes to trial. It might take a while, but sooner or later it will likely come to pass. Then watch out........

Yes, that will be interesting. Violence against civilians during war is justified as long as these damages are "proportional". During all the bombings and shellings, the IDF was not able to suppress Hamas violence - especially in the long term - and because there was no tangible military result of the IDF actions, one can very well deem the civilian casualties as not proportional.

I don't know how the ICC determines it's responsability. I think every ICC member state must detain people if they happen to be on the soil of a member state. And a Palestinian ICC membership gives the government in Ramallah the capability to indict Hamas members for crimes against humanity. This can come in really handy. I remember a news report saying that Hamas members are willing to stand trial in The Hague if IDF personnel would do the same.

So let's see... a country that is going to declare itself a "jewish state" and I'm not allowed to call them jews. Hmmmmm, kinda a contradiction here, eh what?

Because they aren't all Jews? 25% of Israel's population is not Jewish. The rest are Muslim or Christian (or other).

But no worries - we are more than used to some people blaming all the world's problems on "the jews

Except I doubt these decisions being made are made by Muslims, Christians, or other non Jewish geoups. The people behind these rulings are in fact Jews..

If Israel wanted a peaceful solution to the conflict, i don't see what's wrong with going to the UN to present there case and ask for a fast solution, this conflict has lasted a long time, and if it keeps going on and on in few years Israel would have finished confiscating all the land and build new settlements and welcoming more settlers.
