Although Congress voted to send $4 billion to Israel in 2021, I do not believe that this is done out of goodwill or friendship. Most of us know that Leftist Jews in America cling to the Democratic Party and financially support them every year.
As they say: Follow the money.
What many of us do not know is that Biden and his corrupt cohorts are continuing to send money to the Palestinian Authority, even though President Trump put a stop to that in 2018 because much of the funding went to families of terrorists. Biden either did not get that memo or stands in defiance of it.
President Joe Biden’s decision to resume aid — totaling $235 million a year — to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is, arguably, a direct violation of the Taylor Force Act passed by Congress and signed by President Trump in 2018.
The Act prohibits American aid to the Palestinian Authority as long as it continues its policy of paying “salaries” to the families of dead terrorists.
But, the PA continues to pay pensions to the families of those who commit violence against Jews and Israelis, doling out more money if their attack was especially bloody.
During the 2020 campaign, Biden criticized the Trump Administration for failing to crack down on Russia for allegedly paying bounties to the Taliban for each American servicemen they killed.
It has now turned out that the facts were wrong and that no such payments were made.
But, how would you distinguish between the theoretical Russian payments for killing Americans and the actual US payments to the PA as rewards for killing Jews and Israelis?
The Taylor Force Act bans such aid unless three conditions are met.
The PA must:
A. Take steps to end acts of violence,
B. Completely terminate the payment of “salaries” to the families of terrorists,
C. Investigate and publicly condemn violent attacks.
Not only has the PA not terminated its program of salary payments to the families of terrorists, but, in 2020, it paid them at least $181 million.
PA president Mahmoud Abbas recently vowed that the PA will continue such payments to terrorists even if it is left with only “one penny” in its treasury.
He said that the terrorists are “martyrs” who are “stars in the sky of the Palestinian national struggle.”
Indeed, Palestinian law requires that 7% of its annual budget must go to paying terrorists and their families.
The Biden administration is disingenuously claiming that it is not directly aiding the Palestinian Authority but instead providing economic, development, and humanitarian assistance to the people of Palestine.
But the facts clearly prove that the much of the aid will go into the PA treasury to be doled out to terrorist families.
But while the comparison with the alleged Russian bounties is apt, the more relevant comparison would be with President Reagan’s payment of aid to the Nicaraguan Contras in direct violation of the Boland Amendment passed by Congress prohibiting such assistance.
At the time these payments were made, there was talk of impeaching Reagan for violating the law.
Is Biden’s violation any less serious? source
Brethren, this article by Dick Morris was actually written a month before Hamas rained rockets all over Israel and continues.
To send money to these terrorists reveals the black hearts of the Marxists who have taken our country from us.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the peace of all of Israel.
We know this:
“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalms 121:4)
