Click here to tell your Congressman to put an end to our tax dollars being used for fostering hatred and acts of terror against Israelis.
The Trump administration has announced its “strong support” for the Taylor Force Act, a bill that 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.
The Palestinian Authority has now devoted almost half of its foreign “aid” money to rewarding acts of terror against Israelis. 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! Even worse, the more heinous the crime, the higher the payment.
If Congress passes the Taylor Force Act, as it should, the United States will be joining an already growing contingency of nations that are also ceasing their funding for the Palestinian Authority’s abhorrent practices.
+ + The Taylor Force Act must be passed and signed into law!
Please join with many others in signing CIDI’s petition calling for Congress to STOP TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PALESTINIAN TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAEL.
+ + The Palestinians openly incite violence against the Jews.
According to a recent Breitbart report, “Breitbart Jerusalem has documented several examples of the PA’s attempts to incite violence against Israel through its official media and educational mediums. Breitbart Jerusalem Chief Aaron Klein noted:
Last week, the State Department reported that President Donald Trump “raised the need to end any part of this program that incentivizes violence against Israeli and American citizens with President Mahmoud Abbas last May in both Washington and Bethlehem.”
Yet, PA President Mahmoud Abbas has rejected the U.S. calls to end their “pay to Slay” incentives, “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.”
It’s time to tell Congress “Enough is enough.” NOT ONE MORE DOLLAR to the Palestinian Authority until they cease their payments for acts of terror and denounce all acts of violence against Israel.
The Taylor Force Act is a way to force the Palestinians to change their law – or lose funding.
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. 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!
