Yasser Arafat’s security adviser on Wednesday accused the United States of blackmailing the Palestinian Authority over the hunt for the killers of three Americans in the Gaza Strip last October.

U.S. officials have been stopped from going to Gaza since the Oct. 15 roadside bomb attack on a diplomatic vehicle, making it more difficult to assist aid programs for the Palestinians.

“The Americans stopped their involvement waiting for the results (of our investigation). This is blackmail,” security adviser Brigadier Jibril Rajoub told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Clearly, it’s about what’s more important - the lives of USA citizens or cash for those who murdered them?
