Terrorists Allegedly Bribed on Behalf of Fox News

Conservative website WorldNetDaily claims someone paid Palestinian terrorist organizations $2 million for the release of two Fox News reporters. The payment was then allegedly used to buy weapons, meaning — if the claim is accurate — that someone financed terrorists on behalf of Fox News.

WorldNetDaily:

JERUSALEM — Palestinian terror groups and security organizations in the Gaza Strip received $2 million from a United States source in exchange for the release of Fox News employees Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, who were kidnapped here last summer, a senior leader of one of the groups suspected of the abductions told WND.

The terror leader, from the Gaza-based Popular Resistance Committees, said his organization’s share of the money was used to purchase weapons, which he said would be utilized “to hit the Zionists.”

He said he expects the payments for Centanni and Wiig’s freedom will encourage Palestinian groups to carry out further kidnappings.

Officials associated with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party and its security organization, the Preventative Security Services, confirmed to WND money was paid for the release of the Fox News reporters.

A senior leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group, the declared “military wing” of Fatah, said the group received a small percentage of the $2 million, which all parties interviewed said was transferred in cash.
