Senate panel approves bill to cut off U.S. aid to Palestinians

Corker, Graham Praise Committee Passage Of Taylor Force Act

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has approved a measure to suspend USA financial aid to the Palestinian Authority, until it stops rewarding acts of violence against American and Israeli citizens.

The bill calls for an end to USA funding of the Palestinian Authority until it stops financially rewarding people for being terrorists. The United States now gives nearly $400 million a year to help the foreign government. He says their goal was to do something worthy of at least a five-year sentence to get the payment increased.

The bill is named for Taylor Force, an MBA student at Vanderbilt University from Lubbock, Texas, and a US veteran who was visiting Israel in March 2016 when he was stabbed to death by a Palestinian. The 21-year-old Palestinian man who killed him was then praised and financially rewarded by his government. "This bill shines a light on the very real problem of 'Pay to Slay.' Taylor was an American hero who was brutally murdered at the hands of terrorists". Rather than get the PA to stop paying terrorists, it would cause a humanitarian and economic crisis that punishes ordinary Palestinians and would likely push them toward even more extreme groups such as Hamas. "And they are certainly inconsistent with peace". "It is long past time to let the Palestinian Authority know that these practices are wholly unacceptable".

The measure passed the committee with bipartisan support, and both senators feel confident it will soon become law.

The first is that there is a need to punish the Palestinian Authority for its detestable practice of paying bonuses to terrorists and their families for killing and maiming Israelis. "I thank Sen. Graham for his important role in this effort and look forward to this bill becoming law".
