British taxpayers fund the Palestinian Authority (PA) through our contributions to the European Union (EU) budget and by our direct bilateral assistance to the PA. In 2006 this amounted to £47.5 million of our money going to finance the PA budget. The PA has used this money to create a programme in which Palestinian children are encouraged to revere suicide bombers see here. We - the UK taxpayers - want the British Government to pressure the PA to stop this hate education. We want some return for this £47.5 million – this means the PA spending our money building the peace rather than revering suicide bombers.

British Taxpayers pay for this hate education in the following three ways. We fund the Palestinian education system which distributes school textbooks preaching hatred of the west and the destruction of Israel.

We also free up resources for the PA to spend on hate propaganda by financing the provision of essential services the PA would otherwise be expected to provide. British Taxpayers want the UK government to use the considerable leverage we have as a provider of aid to force the PA to stop producing this kind of hate education and to start promoting peace and reconciliation between the Palestinian and Israeli people.
