Israeli policy dictates the impoverishment and unemployment in the West Bank, but coping with it falls on the shoulders of the PA, the buffer between the principal culprit and the people.



Yesterday, the PA security services set up rings of checkpoints in the Area A enclaves, where Israel allows the Palestinian police to carry weapons.

[...] “The PA has gone crazy,” a teacher from Nablus who didn’t manage to get through the checkpoints said by phone. “It and its security services are acting as if the people were the enemy.”
