Preposterous! (CIDI)

The Palestinian Authority is channeling “aid” money to fund acts of terror. Even worse, the more heinous the crime, the higher the payment. And the sum is staggering.

Sen. Ted Cruz says the Palestinians give over $300 million to terrorists and their families. Since the U.S. provides over $700 million of direct and indirect aid to the Palestinians, our tax dollars are footing the bill to reward terrorists who kill American and Israeli citizens!

+ + This is preposterous!

The misguided policy of many western nations, including the United States, is that opposing the Palestinian Authority and its practice of funding terrorism will further incite and radicalize the PA and its people.

“Not true,” says the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. “In fact, the opposite is true.” The Palestinians “see the readiness of Western nations to keep funding them and to turn a blind eye toward funding terrorism as a green light to continue terror and education in hate.”

How frightening that the United States government would turn a blind eye to actions that are not only against international law and the Oslo Accord, but horrifically unconscionable.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) said, “It’s unacceptable that our taxpayer dollars are still being used by the Palestinian Authority to pay terrorists who have Israeli and American blood on their hands, and to brainwash young Palestinians with hatred for the Jewish people.”


Right now, the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committees are reviewing two bills designed to cease our “aid” money to the Palestinians until they desist in funding terrorism. The Taylor Force Act (H.R. 1164) and a companion Senate bill (S. 474) have both been sitting in these committees since being introduced in February! It’s time to pass these measures and get a unified bill on President Trump’s desk!

Please join with me in signing CIDI’s petition calling for Congress to STOP TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PALESTINIAN TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAEL.

+ + Taylor Force was a genuine American hero

In March, 2016, a Palestinian terrorist brutally stabbed and murdered U.S. Army veteran and decorated war hero, Taylor Force, in a vicious attack that left 10 others wounded in Tel Aviv.

Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction praised the terrorist as a “heroic martyr.”

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.

With congressional passage of these defunding bills, the choice for the Palestinian Authority will become simple: Change their policy of funding terrorism or lose hundreds of millions of dollars in aid.

One click here and you’ll be automatically added to the petition, which will be delivered to key congressional leaders as soon as we have 25,000 signatures.

Thank you for joining with us!

God bless you.  God bless the USA. God bless Israel.

P.S. The Petition States:

I join with many other pro-Israel Americans in calling for the passage of the Taylor Force Act (H.R. 1164) and the Senate companion bill (S. 474). 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!
