Palestinian Council Member -- The PA Is Corrupt

Since the vast majority of the PA are Hamas members, it's easy to find government members willing to say things are great. Mu'awiya Al-Masri, a Palestinian Legislative Council member from Nablus, is taking his life in his hands by talking about PA corruption.
