Washington – Sapa
11 members of the American Congress signed a letter calling on the American company PayPal to end its ban on dealings with Palestinians and stop discriminating against them while allowing settlers to use the digital payment platform.
The letter, written by Congressman Mark Faucan, states that the company “discriminates against Palestinians” by denying them “equal access to the digital economy.”
She added, “We have great concerns, in light of the fact that PayPal provides services to settlers in illegal settlements in the West Bank, but does not provide services to Palestinians living in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip,” and noted that “the current state of the company’s activity violates the rights of the Palestinians.”
In the letter, it was emphasized that the company has a responsibility to ensure that its services and operations are provided in a non-discriminatory manner, since it is one of the most popular payment platforms in the world.
The letter was delivered today to Dan Shulman, CEO of PayPal, signed by members of Congress: Earl Blumenauer, Betty McCollum, Rashida Tlaib, Greg Kasser and others.
