Today the Senate Foreign Relations Committee took the vital first step to Stop U.S. taxpayer funding of terrorism against Israel!
The Committee voted favorably, 16-5 on The Taylor Force Act. The bill 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.
As reported in a press release by the Senate Committee:
Today, our Capitol Hill liaison was in the Capitol representing us at the committee’s mark-up and vote on the Taylor Force legislation. We commend the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for passing the Taylor Force Act. We will be closely monitoring the bill’s progress as it makes its way through both chambers of Congress — and onto President Trump’s desk.
+ + Let’s give ‘em something to think about!
Now that the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has taken a much needed first step toward the passage of the Taylor Force Act, 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.
As of today, we need 7,000 more signatures on the STOP TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PALESTINIAN TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAEL petition before we deliver the petition to key members of Congress. Click here to be added to the petition.
+ + No more money for murder!
As I reported to you yesterday, 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.
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.
We must send the message loud and clear: No more money for murder!
Before our next petition delivery, I encourage you to join with us in this vital pro-Israel initiative.
Thank you for joining with us!
God bless you. God bless the USA. God bless Israel.

P.S. We commend the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for passing the Taylor Force Act that will cut the supply of blood money to the Palestinian Authority to murder innocent Israelis and Americans. We cannot reward acts of terrorism like the one that tragically took the life of Taylor Force.
It’s unconscionable that even one American taxpayer dollar has been used to brainwash young Palestinians to hate the Jewish people and to pay terrorists to ruthlessly murder Israelis and Americans. “Pay to Slay” must end.
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!
