On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, an interview with Maurice Hirsch, Head of legal strategies at Palestinian Media Watch, who is outraged at Israel’s decision to “loan” the PA $800 million due to their claim that as a result of Corona, they are on the verge of collapse. Hirsch says that the payment fundamentally undermines the war on terror, as the PA has shown time and time again, that the funding they receive from international sources is diverted towards their “pay to slay” program, which awards terrorists and their families for carrying out attacks against Israelis.
