Official Palestinian Authority TV (PA TV) shows two young Palestinian girls proclaiming, “Jews are filth, they desecrate and defile Jerusalem.” The girls recite a poem they were taught: “Oh sons of Zion, oh most evil, oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs, Jerusalem is not your den…”
P.A. TV also shows Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas saying, “We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah.”
The United States government is paying $290 million in taxpayer dollars to “aid” the Palestinians while the Palestinian Authority teaches hatred toward Israel and pays over $300 million in reward money each year to terrorists. This is an insane fiscal policy – and even worse foreign policy.
That’s why Christians in Defense of Israel is calling on the United States Congress to PASS THE TAYLOR FORCE ACT!
The Taylor Force Act is named for U.S. Army veteran and decorated war hero, Taylor Force, who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in a vicious attack that left 10 others wounded in Tel Aviv. It requires the Secretary of State to certify to Congress the Palestinian Authority is taking credible steps to end acts of violence against United States and Israeli citizens that are perpetrated by individuals under its jurisdictional control. In other words, the bill demands that the Palestinians stop funding terrorism or we’ll stop our funding to them!
+ + 10,000 more signatures needed before the end of the year!
Just a few days remain to take action this year! Right now we are still far short of having enough signatures for a petition delivery.

+ + The Taylor Force Act is a way to force the Palestinians to change their incitement of terror and hate – or lose funding.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) said of the bill, “The American people and the Israelis believe in helping the Palestinians build a better and more prosperous society. But that better society will never be possible if Palestinian leaders continue to funnel cash to terrorists and their families. The Obama administration and future administrations should hold Palestinian leadership accountable on this issue and tell them that as long as they continue to fund terror, they should not expect another dollar of U.S. economic assistance.”
Thank you for joining with us!
God bless you. God bless the USA. God bless Israel.

P.S. This disastrous foreign policy of appeasement through foreign aid to terrorist nations threatens our own national security and severely threatens Israeli citizens and Americans who travel to Israel.
I join with many other pro-Israel Americans in calling for the passage of the Taylor Force Act. The Palestinians must be held accountable for their egregious law that authorizes payments to individuals and their families who commit acts of terrorism against American and Israeli citizens. Economic aid must cease unless the Palestinian Authority stops its outrageous practice of rewarding terrorists and their families with financial aid. No more bonuses for butchery!
