Senate Panel Hearing Mulls Cutting Funding to Palestinians for Rewarding Terrorists
Posted by Staff


On Wednesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing to discuss the Taylor Force Act, which, if passed, would cut financial aid from the United States to the Palestinian Authority (PA) unless the PA stops its “pay for slay” payments which reward terrorists.

The hearing highlighted the differences between the Obama and Trump administrations’ policies and approach towards Israel.

The Taylor Force Act, which was introduced by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dan Coats (R-IN), and Roy Blunt (R-MO) in 2016, was named after a U.S. Army veteran who was killed by a Palestinian terrorist that same year. Facebook Fark Furl
