US Pressures Isreal to Release Money

Tony Blair meets with Palestini Prime Minister Salam Fayyad

Secratary of State Hillary Clinton and British envoy to the Middle East Tony Blair are pressuring Isreal to release tax money they are withholding from Palestine.  Apparently the Isreali Finance Minister, Yuval Steinitz, decided to withhold the money that Isreal collects on behalf of Palestine on his own accord.  Isreal has agreements with Palestine over the money and would be breaking international law by not releasing it.  Steinitz reportedly has backing from Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister, but both the Defense Minister and Foreign Ministry are reportedly outraged that Steinitz did not consult them on the diplomatic and security aspects.
