    Whilst Bibi might have taken this money as a punishment for Abbas stunt at the UN the palestinians did OWE this money to Israel. They should actually be grateful it was taken because not so long ago Israel Electric was talking about cutting the power to the palestinians until they paid their DEBTS,now Bibi has taken some money and given it to Israel Electric so the palestinian lights won't go out. In this case Bibi had every right to withhold the money because just like everybody else debt must be repaid no saying its my right not to pay the bill because I don't want to. What Abbas should be worrying about is not paying the electric bill but is the US going to stop giving the PA money because US law says that aid money must be withheld if they do something like this at the UN so Congress may demand the hundreds of millions of Dollars the PA gets every year from the US will be withheld, then they really will have money problems.
