Incredibly, the U.S. sends hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars each year to the Palestinian Authority and almost half of that money is placed in the hands of terrorists and their families. It’s time for this flow of immoral “aid” money to stop.Click here to tell your Congressman to follow Norway’s lead and demand an end to our tax dollars being used for terror attacks against Israelis and Americans by passing the Taylor Force Act
As soon as Norwegian officials learned that their gift of $10,000 for a Palestinian women’s center was named for Dalal Mughrabi, the leader of a bloody terrorist attack in 1978, they demanded and received a refund. Government officials insisted that its “funds be returned, and that its monies not be used to glorify a mass-murderer.”
+ + If Norway’s government can take appropriate action, why can’t the United States Government?
It is despicable that we continue to fund the Palestinians in spite of the fact that their leadership openly defies U.S calls to end their heinous “Pay to Slay” policy that rewards terrorists and their families with stipends!
This simply must stop! Thankfully, a number of U.S. lawmakers are questioning why millions of American taxpayer dollars earmarked for Palestinian “aid” go to a government advocating terror against our strongest Middle East ally – and us.
Senator Roy Blunt said, “It would be absolutely unconscionable to allow U.S. taxpayer dollars to be used by the Palestinian Authority to reward convicted terrorists for acts of violence against Israel.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “President Abbas must be held accountable for the Palestinian Authority’s record of incitement and must stop subsidizing terror. It’s abhorrent that the Palestinian Authority provides payments to terrorists and families of those who have committed terrorist violence against Israelis and Americans and others. I am a proud co-sponsor of the Taylor Force Act because it aims to put an end to this disturbing practice, which only perpetuates the cycle of violence and undercuts the drive to peace. This bill will also honor the memory and sacrifice of Taylor Force.”
+ + The Taylor Force Act should be fast-tracked for passage!
The Senate version of the Taylor Force Act restricts U.S. economic aid to the West Bank and Gaza until the Palestinian Authority stops paying terrorists guilty of violence against Israelis and Americans.
That’s why we are adamant that the Senate pass the Taylor Force Act. Your first step in helping to advance the bill is to sign Christian In Defense Of Israel’s important STOP TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PALESTINIAN TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAEL petition.

+ + U.S. taxpayers should not fund terrorism against Israel!
PA President Mahmoud Abbas said last month, “I don’t intend to cease payment for families of prisoner martyrs, even if it costs me my seat. I will continue to pay them until my last day.”
The Palestinian Authority has now devoted almost half of its foreign “aid” money to rewarding acts of terror against Israelis and innocent bystanders, as was the case in the death of American war hero Taylor Force, for whom the bill is named.
We have long opposed our nation’s funding of the Palestinian Authority, an organization of people rooted in Muslim extremism who advocate the most vile form of anti-Semitism – the killing of Jews.
Thank you for joining with us!
God bless you. God bless the USA. God bless Israel.

P.S. Norwegian authorities have taken appropriate action against the Palestinians for actions they deem to be reprehensible. Now it’s past time for our lawmakers and the Trump administration to declare the Palestinian Authority a “terror-sponsoring organization” — and defund the PA until they verifiably cease their “Pay to Slay” payments, and stop inciting terror against the Israelis.
The Petition States:
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 money for murder!
