For years the Palestinian government has been funding terrorism, most of which has been focused towards Israel. Barack Obama took measures to legitimize the Palestinian government against the advice and wishes of our allies, Israel. After an American was stabbed to death in Tel Aviv last year by a Palestinian terrorist whose family is making money off of the terrorist act, Congress wants to cut aide to them as long as they continue to fund terrorists.
Taylor Force was a West Point graduate who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was pursuing his MBA at Vanderbilt last year, and his future was certainly very bright.
“Taylor was stabbed to death while he was in Israel by a Palestinian,” says his mother, Robbi, matter-of-factly.
Taylor, who was 28, was walking along the Mediterranean boardwalk promenade with friends in Tel Aviv, when he was savagely knifed to death on March 8, 2016.
His killer was identified as a Palestinian terrorist, 22-year-old Bashar Masalha, who authorities say went on a stabbing spree that also severely wounded ten others before he was shot dead by Israeli police.
The terrorist organization Hamas has long been associated with the Palestinian government and it will take more than an act of Congress to shut down funding of them. Personally, I believe the United States should stop sending any of our tax dollars to the Palestinians, in light of the fact that many hate the US and would be just as happy to destroy us as they would be about destroying Israel.
