Bill Targeting P.A. Payments to

Terrorists Set to Pass Committee Vote

-

The Taylor Force Act, which targets Palestinian Authority payments to terrorists, is set for a House Foreign Affairs Committee vote.

The act is expected to pass overwhelmingly, and will then move to a full vote in the House, where it also enjoys wide support.

Named after an American veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist while visiting Israel, the bill would make drastic cuts to U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority unless it ends its policy of paying terrorists and their families.

President Donald Trump has not taken a clear stance on the bill.

The P.A.'s so-called "pay-to-slay" policy is considered a major contributor to continued Palestinian violence and proof of the Palestinians' support for terrorism.
