US and Eu funds to the PA help them get ready for statehood. This would normally be a cost of the occupying power as it was with the US in Iraq and the Brits in India. In the absence of US/EU funds, the occupying power either take back the funding or takes over the funding of government, police, fire, schools etc., in the occupied territories. Do you plan to triple or quadruple your personal contributions to Israel? The US won't be increasing cash to Israel if the PA is cut off. Or should Israeli taxpayers take over the extra 2 Billion NIS annual expense the US and EU currently pick up? The US/EU funding is actually a gift to Israel.
