Yasser Arafat was aware that money given to Palestinian charities was being funneled to terrorist groups, according to documents Israeli soldiers found in the Gaza Strip. In one memo, dated Sept. 2, 2002, the head of the Palestinian Preventive Security Service in the Gaza Strip, Rashid Abu Shoubak, explicitly mentions to Arafat that the Charity Coalition financially supports Hamas’ terror infrastructure.
