No More Aid To “Palestinians”

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 27, 2018

         FOR YEARS I HAVE SUSPECTED U.S. AND OTHER WORLD AID THAT HAS GONE TO THE SO-CALLED “PALESTINIANS” WAS BEING USED TO UNDERWRITE TERRORISM. NOW THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON REPORTS THAT SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WANT TO COMPEL THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO REVEAL HOW MUCH IT HAS GIVEN TO CONVICTED TERRORISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES. REPRESENTATIVES DAVID MCKINLEY, REPUBLICAN OF WEST VIRGINIA, AND JOHN RATCLIFFE, A TEXAS REPUBLICAN, ARE ASKING FOR A COMPLETE FREEZE ON AID TO THE PALESTINIAN GOVERNMENT

THIS FOLLOWS PASSAGE OF THE TAYLOR FORCE ACT, WHICH REQUIRES THE PALESTINIANS TO STOP THESE PAYMENTS, OR FACE A CUTOFF OF AID.

THE LETTER FOLLOWS A FREE BEACON REPORT THAT THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY CONTINUES TO SPEND AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS ON TERRORISTS. PALESTINIAN OFFICIALS SAY THEY HAVE NO INTENTION OF FOLLOWING THE NEW LAW. THAT’S ANOTHER AND COMPELLING REASON TO FREEZE THE AID NOW.

IRAN IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST UNDERWRITER OF TERRORISM. THE UNITED STATES SHOULD NOT BE A PART OF EFFORTS TO DESTROY ISRAEL AND KILL JEWS. THE NEW LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. LET’S HOPE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS CAN COMPEL THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO OBEY IT. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
