Does does this have any bearing on the years of UK taxpayer funds being handed over as aid to the terrorism-addicted PA regime ["13-Apr-16: Parliament will debate UK funding of the PA's Rewards for Terror scheme"]? Remember? Those millions of pounds of aid given annually to people about whom the Mail on Sunday published a blistering expose four weeks ago?
The scandal of how Britain fritters away billions in foreign aid – including paying salaries to convicted terrorists who have murdered hundreds of innocent people – is exposed today by a major MoS investigation. The shocking revelation that thousands of Palestinian terrorists, including men who have masterminded suicide bombings and murdered children, are given cash handouts from aid money will cause anger and disbelief, particularly in the wake of the Brussels massacres. Our probe exposed how huge amounts of taxpayers’ cash, that critics say should be spent in Britain, is being ‘squandered’ on wasteful schemes elsewhere by the Department For International Development (DFID) and Foreign Office. [Mail on Sunday UK, via the Daily Mail website, March 27, 2016]It will be interesting to see how parliamentarians respond to self-justifying declarations from the UK's foreign aid bureaucracy like this one, quoted in the Daily Mail on March 26, 2016:
"DFID insists that the government is 'cutting wasteful programmes and making sure spending is in the national interest... Our aid programme is helping to create a more prosperous and stable world in which the UK can stand tall and flourish."

at Al-Azhar University, an Egyptian institution with a campus
in the Islamist-controlled Hamas enclave. The lab was part-funded
via British government foreign aid
European - and British - foreign aid money, along with taxpayer funds from several other Western countries, have served as the indispensable fuel that has enabled more than a decade and a half of systematic Palestinian Arab acts of terror and murder. The connection between PA corruption, malevolence and mendacity through the Arafat and Abbas years has been there at all times for anyone who wanted to see. Now there's a chance for this to be stopped.
