US lawmakers advance bill slashing $300mn annual aid to Palestinians

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has passed a bill that could cut roughly $300 million in financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority, some of which it says, is allegedly being distributed among the families of slain Palestinian attackers and prisoners tried and convicted by Israel of murder and terrorism.

The Taylor Force Act was adopted by the bipartisan chamber in a 17 to 4 vote. The proposed legislation, if approved by the full Senate, aims to suspend American aid distributed by the Palestinian Authority (PA) among those believed to have suffered from alleged Israeli brutality.

“This bill shines a light on the very real problem of ‘Pay to Slay,’” noted Senator Lindsey Graham, who introduced the legislation before lawmakers in February.

“You can’t be a partner in peace when you are paying people to commit acts of terror. It is long past time to let the Palestinian Authority know that these practices are wholly unacceptable,” he added, as quoted by the Jewish Journal.

Senate Committee Votes to Cut Off Aid to Palestinians

Washington has provided annual aid to the Palestinian Authority since the Oslo Accords were signed in September 1993.

Much of it goes for funding Palestinian security forces, serving as Israel’s enforcer.

He disgracefully called PA aid to families of Palestinians killed by Israel “pay to slay” payments ­ ignoring its apartheid viciousness, murdering and brutalizing Palestinians unaccountably, virtually all other congressional members supporting what demands condemnation and firm action to stop.

Corker expects House and Senate passage of the legislation, perhaps in the fall. Cutting off aid will create enormous hardships, increasing Palestinian suffering under a ruthless occupier.

Separately, bipartisan Senate Foreign Relations Committee members urged neocon US UN envoy Nikki Haley to lead an international effort, pressuring other countries to cut off PA aid.

Its officials said they’ll continue aiding families of Palestinians imprisoned or killed by Israel for wanting to live free from oppressive occupation.

Israel considers legitimate resistance “terrorism.” Its own extreme harshness is called “self-defense.”
