Palestinian Authority’s woes are a problem for US, Israel
Those calling for cuts in funding to the Palestinian Authority are short-sighted. Even Israel itself wants to avoid the Palestinian Authority’s collapse. The Palestinian Authority has taken over much of the heavy-lifting of governing the Palestinian people in the West Bank, including reining in protests and arresting terrorist suspects. Attacks by Palestinians on Israelis in the West Bank have declined steadily, even as attacks by Israeli settlers on both Palestinians and the Israeli military have dramatically risen.
