Rudy Giuliani, US President Donald Trump’s lawyer, said last week that if the American government cares about the lives of its citizens, it will stop supporting a “murder machine, which is what the Palestinian Authority (PA) has become.”

In an interview with Palestinian Media Watch during a visit to Israel, Giuliani said the US should not give the PA any money and not just restrict the use of money, “because money is fungible.”

“So if they get money for one purpose,” Giuliani said, “they just don’t use it for that purpose and they move it over to paying terrorists for killing Americans, because many of these terrorists have killed Americans as well as Israelis and citizens of other countries.”

Giuliani noted that the PA pays terrorists who are convicted of terrorism and their families and that this is “an absolute human rights outrage and a crime in and of itself.”

“To give money to people who slaughter innocent human beings, including children and women and innocent people of all kinds, is a direct contribution to terrorism… The fact that the Palestinian Authority does this, carries this out on a massive scale, is yet another indication that the Palestinian Authority is a prime supporter of terrorism, and therefore not entitled to be a state.”
