Promising Development in UK Terror Financing Case

Some positive news from the UK, thanks to the hard work of our own Kay Wilson, with a formal complaint being lodged with the British Police, calling upon them to investigate two MPs, who it is alleged, have breached the terrorism act by giving “aid” to her would-be murderers.

SCOTLAND Yard has been asked to investigate whether the Department for International Development (DfID) and two ministers breached terrorism legislation by giving aid money to the Palestinian Authority.

A complaint made directly to the head of the Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick claims international aid handed to the Palestinian Authority has been used to pay terrorists in prisons, contravening the Terrorism Act 2000.

The allegation made by Ken Miller, on behalf of pro-Israel group Israel Britain Alliance, follows concerns raised by Kay Wilson, a British citizen attacked and left for dead, while her friend American Kristine Luken was murdered in 2010 by Palestinian terrorists.

Ms Wilson alleged that her attackers are now receiving thousands of pounds in payments from the Palestinian Authority while in prison.

She claims this comes from British government aid money.

Mr Miller pointed to evidence from the campaign group Palestine Media Watch.

The group says that “salaries of convicted Palestinian terrorists are paid out of the un-earmarked funds in the central treasury account”.

A spokesman for the DfID said: “No UK aid is used for payments to Palestinian prisoners or their families.”

Kay, in her own inimitable style, notes that this news coincides with Purim, when we celebrate the defeat of the first antisemite.

Here’s hoping Scotland Yard follows up and justice is served.
