Israel May Seek Palestinian Compensation for Rocket Damage

Perhaps Israel will follow through and recognize that the only way to get back at a bully is to bully them in return. From Israel May Seek Palestinian Compensation for Rocket Damage:

A bill approved by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation Sunday would allow Israel to claim compensation from the Palestinian Authority for damages caused by Kassam rockets fired at Israel. The money would be deducted from the tax payments collected by Israel on the PA's behalf.

"It is inconceivable that the State of Israel should shoulder the costs of the rocket fire, which the Palestinian Authority is responsible for," the bill states.
