The GOP-led House has approved legislation to withhold U.S. financial aid to the Palestinian Authority until it takes credible steps to end their practice of rewarding Muslim terrorists who kill Americans and Israelis.
The bipartisan bill passed Tuesday by voice vote. The legislation reflects outrage over a “pay to slay” program endorsed by the Palestinian Authority.
Force was an MBA student at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee.
He was visiting Israel in March 2016 when he was murdered by a Muslim terrorist who went on a stabbing rampage in Yaffo in which 12 other people were wounded.
A Muslim terrorist who is imprisoned for attacking (but not murdering) Jews receives a monthly salary of $400 from the Palestinian Authority. The amount goes up according to the length of the terrorist’s prison sentence. A Muslim terrorist who succeeds in murdering a Jew receives a monthly salary of $3,400.
After he completes his sentence, a terrorist receives a minimum additional grant of $1,500. The size of the grant increases according to the length of his sentence. A murderer receives $25,000.
Their families are rewarded, too. The family of an unmarried terrorist who is eliminated receives $100 monthly. The widow of a terrorist receives $250 each month, for life.
