Haaretz Hebrew reports that a Palestinian Arab mounted three shooting attacks in order to be arrested and sent to jail, so the PA would pay him.
Ashraf Issa was building a house but did not have enough cash to complete it. So he decided to shoot at Egged armored buses, claiming that he chose them in order to ensure that no one gets hurt.
After two attacks where he even called up an Arab TV station to accept responsibility, but no arrest, he chose to do his third attack in broad daylight, standing in front of the bus, shooting at the lower part of it and waiting patiently to be arrested.
Because Issa's testimony held up, he was sentenced to a relatively light 7 years and 10 months, and his attack was classified as "economic" and not "nationalistic."
Even though he seems to have meant no harm, this proves that the cash that the PLO pays to terrorists - a part of their budget that is sacred - actually encourages attacks. This makes the PLO complicit in every terror attack since they provide an insurance policy to all Palestinian Arabs who only need to pay by attacking Jews.
It is a sad commentary that the most moral Palestinian Arab in the news is the one who only shoots towards Jews without trying to actually kill them.
