house Bill H.R. 1164

Should the Palestinian Authority Not Get Foreign Aid Unless it Stops Paying Rewards to Terrorists?

Argument in favor

The U.S. shouldn’t be providing foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority when the organization is paying monetary rewards to terrorists and their surviving family members. This bill ends that.

Taylor Force was an exceptional human being who's life was cut short from a senseless preventable act of violence. I believe the 22 yr old Palestinian man that viciously attacked and stabbed Taylor would have not done so if he was not encouraged with the incentive of being a martyr and hero and guaranteed monetary support from The Palestinian Authority for his family for life just for killing not only Israelis but ANYONE legally visiting Israel. This is outrageous that the U.S. provides funding to Palestinian and doesn't require them to abolish this incentive to kill! We should penalize them for every senseless killing and take funds away to stop this law they have enacted of rewarding terrorism!! Taylors life needs to stand for something! He gave the world his best. He was a 28 year old graduate of West Point, third generation Eagle Scout, combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. Please pass the Taylor Force Act which targets 'pay-for-slay' to make Tyler's life successes & ultimate sacrifice count.

The Palestinian Authority is a State sponsor of terrorism when it gives monetary support to terrorists. That being said, why would we give any kind of foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority in the first place. They are constantly at logger heads with Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East. Seriously, the government should be stepping away from any support from the Palestinian Authority and throw all the support we have behind Israel. Israel has treated us with nothing but respect and when the US government gives foreign aid to the PA, we slap Israel in the face. No support to the PA, period.

Argument opposed

The U.S. needs to provide aid to the Palestinian Authority even if the State Department can’t certify that they’re taking steps to end violence against Israelis and paying terrorists.

The goal is to create peace in the Middle East. Removing aid will only make people more desperate and willing to resort to violence to survive. Removing aid will not stop the violence between Palestine and Israel. If you want to remove weapons from the situation to move towards peace, you have to remove them from both sides of the conflict.

US policy is only one sided in favor of Israel and the extremist right wingers like Netanyahu and the religious fanatics who do not want a two state solution and peace. There is no balance in the US approach.

    This is an apartheid state that we’re talking about here. The reason why we’re seeing all these atrocities occurring in this region of the world is because is Israel is occupying the Palestinian Territories. If we want these acts of violence to stop then Israel needs to end the occupation. Also, the Palestinian Territories are one of the most impoverished regions in the world and we’re talking about taking away their foreign aid? That is madness!

    If our politicians provide funds to countries that sponsor, or even permit, terrorist organizations then they’re talking out of both sides of their mouths.

    Any state that sponsors terrorism should have its US funding immediately cut.

    NO one, individual or corporation or government should get ANY kind of help from us as long as they support terrorists! This should be a no brainer. If we support them, we are, in fact, supporting terrorism! One cannot eat at a restaurant owned by the mafia and not support organized crime ... no matter how good the calamari is!

    The Palestinian people have been occupied by the Israeli government for long enough. Their treatment is comparable to that of blacks in South Africa during the rein of Apartheid. The Palestinians should be given foreign aid to assert themselves against the Israeli government, so they can finally get the freedom that belongs to them.

    Seems like a reasonable condition, broadly applicable across the spectrum of US foreign aid.

    The PLO wrote the book on terrorism. Remember Munich 1972? That was the beginning. NO
