PA Financiers Starting to Wonder

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that an important meeting of international Palestinian Authority donors has been postponed because of the latest corruption charges raised by the BBC and 60 Minutes and a "damning International Monetary Fund report published in September." The meeting was supposed to take place on Wednesday in Rome.

This organization - the "Ad Hoc Liaison Committee" - is the main funding channel for international support for the PA, authorizing over $2 billion transferred from world taxpayers in recent years.

Pressure applied by media monitors certainly played a part in the BBC and CBS revelations, so this is a great example of how media activists can directly affect the political scene, and for the better.
