"Hours after civil servants stormed parliament, the Palestinian foreign minister - Mahmoud Zahar - returned from a trip to Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, China, Pakistan, Iran and Egypt with $20 million in his luggage"
Mohammed Dahlan, an influential Fatah member, said: 'We hope this money finds its way to the finance ministry and not the treasury of Hamas.' "
It appears that, under agreed Israeli/PA terms, his status as a Palestinian Authority minister allows him to bring cash into PA territory unhindered and he was allowed to proceed with it.
Provides a whole new perspective on how to finance government - (or will it be terrorist) activity though doesn't it?
