Palestinians celebrate an American’s murder! (LCAction)

Taylor Force, a U.S. Army soldier “led his platoon into combat on two deployments, one to Iraq and one to Afghanistan —  and he brought them home safely” as recalled by his parents, Stuart and Robbi Force, in an emotional tribute given earlier this week. As told by the algemeiner:

“Stuart Force said, ‘Our son Taylor was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in Jaffa, Israel, while walking to dinner with classmates from Vanderbilt University. They were MBA students visiting Israel to interact and exchange with Israeli companies.

After the terrorist was shot and killed, his body was returned to his family by the Israeli authorities. ‘The celebrations began,’ Force noted. ‘His family immediately qualified for a monthly stipend of up to $3,500 from the Palestinian Authority.’

Fighting back tears, Force added: ‘The celebrations heightened when they found out that Taylor was an American.'”

The Taylor Force Act, now being considered in the Senate, is named in memory this U.S. Army veteran, West Point Graduate, Vanderbilt student, and Eagle Scout. If passed, the Act defunds the Palestinian Authority (PA) until it ceases payments and benefits that reward terrorists and their families for acts of terror against Israel and the U.S.

We urge the Senate to pass the Taylor Force Act that will cut the supply of blood money from U.S. taxpayers to the Palestinian Authority. We cannot reward acts of terrorism like the one that tragically took the life of Taylor Force.“Pay to Slay” must end. The murder of innocent Americans and Israelis must end.

It is vital to this cause that you stand with us to demand that CONGRESS STOP TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PALESTINIAN TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAEL.  One click here or on the banner and your name will be automatically added to the petition.

Stop terror funding

+ + The greatest threat to “peace” in the Middle East is the all-consuming goal of these radical Islamists to eliminate the tiny nation of Israel.

Earlier this week, 24 Israeli mayors representing 450,000 residents of Judea and Samaria sent a letter to Senator Tom Cotton calling on him to encourage U.S. Senators to pass the Taylor Force Act.

The letter states: “If we truly want to give peace and coexistence a chance to blossom, then removing the poisonous message that underlies the need for the Taylor Force Act is a critical first step. The PA should receive the very clear message that the U.S. government will no longer look the other way when terrorists are publicly glorified. By exposing these blatant efforts to influence the next generation of Palestinians away from genuine peace efforts, your amendment actually gives peace a chance to take root.”

The Taylor Force Act will force the PA to face the consequences of its cynical, outrageous payments if it does not end this abhorrent practice.

Before any more “aid” money is sent to the Palestinians to use to fund and inspire acts of terror, the United States government MUST STOP turning a blind eye to these actions that are against international law and are horrifically unconscionable.

We stand with these Israeli mayors and residents of Israel. The Trump administration has also announced its “strong support” for the Taylor Force Act. That’s why we are petitioning the Senate to pass the Taylor Force Act.

Stop terror funding

Thank you for joining us in this important anti-terror effort!

God bless you,

P.S. In closing, Stuart Force said, “Together, we can ensure that our voices and Taylor’s voice will be heard in the fight for freedom and justice.” Passing the Taylor Force Act is a fitting tribute to this American hero.

Before our next petition delivery to congressional leaders, I encourage you to join with us in this vital initiative to end the Palestinians “Pay to Slay” policy.

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!
