#2 Israel fulfills its obligations under the Oslo Treaty with the Paleostinian Authority. No PA---No Oslo Treaty---no power and water. The Israeli govt should cut off courtesy hospital admissions, too. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses with losers.

Fayyad: Palestinian economy devastated by Israeli freeze
Israel's suspension of transferring tax revenue to the Palestinian Authority has had a "devastating impact" on the Palestinian economy, PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said.

Fayyad told The Associated Press that he will be unable to pay the salaries of tens of thousands of civil servants.

Israel has been withholding about $100 million in tax payments collected on the Palestinians' behalf since the Palestinians were accepted as a full member of UNESCO, the United Nations scientific and cultural agency, and is continuing to withhold them over Fatah-Hamas unity talks.
