The Jerusalem Post reports: The family of Khalil Yusef Ali Jabarin, the terrorist who murdered 45-year-old father of four Ari Fuld on Sunday, will receive NIS 1,400 a month for the next three years from the Palestinian Authority, as part of its policy of funding what they call “martyrs” for the Palestinian cause, according to information supplied by the PA.
