On the grounds it was collecting money for unpaid electric bills Bibi took some of the PA tax money and gave it to the electric company. Real reason had nothing to do with paying bills it was just excuse to get back at them over the UN bid. For 20 years the PA has been provided with electricity from Israel and not paid their bills and every government from Rabin - Sharon has turned a blind eye to avoid making diplomatic conflict with the PA. Israel Electric has made up that shortfall by putting up electricity prices to Israelis' Why should my tax money be used to provide the PA with electricity? If Bibi can take the tax money once to pay the bills then why not again, does Abbas have to go to the UN before we ask him to pay his bills like the rest of us do.

5. Why the difference?
Ralph Haglund ,   Sweden   (12.11.12)
Hamas gets free power but Abbas not - wny that difference? Or is someone paying the power to Gaza? I have never seen anything about it - and anyway, start stopping the power to Gaza! They have power plant and a thin power to Egypt, what more are they entitled to???
6. Stop paying electricity bills!
Jonathan ,   Petac-Tikva Israel   (12.11.12)
Electricity prices are hiking. We are paying bills for those who occupy our land, kill women and children Now they call themselves a "state" That's an interesting state that lives on expenses of people from another country! People stop paying for electricity until the last penny is withdrawn from the thieves1
