Corruption in the Palestinian Authority – Khaled Abu Toameh
A video posted on Facebook last week revealed that the wife of the Palestinian Authority ambassador to Spain is serving as ambassador to Sweden, while his brother, who also holds the rank of ambassador, works as head of the Latin America Department in Fatah’s International Affairs Department. The ambassador’s daughter was appointed as a Palestinian “spokeswoman” in Europe, while her husband works as senior aide to the Palestinian foreign minister.
The video also claimed that Foreign Minister Riad Malki, who has been in his position for 12 years, appointed his brother as ambassador to Colombia.
In their reactions, Palestinian leaders are telling their people that anyone who complains about corruption is a traitor working with the Americans and Israelis against the interests of the Palestinians. This charge not only carries the death penalty, it brings shame to the accused and his or her entire clan. (Gatestone Institute)
