America One Step Closer to Defunding Palestinian Terrorists


Reported By Elliot Friedland | Sunday, November 19, 2017

Taylor Force was an American army veteran who was killed by a Palestinian terrorist while on a university trip in Israel.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee has just approved a bill called the Taylor Force Act which would strip U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority until it changes its policies on supporting terrorism.

What Is the Taylor Force Act?

Taylor Force was a U.S. veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist while on a university trip in Israel. An officer who had served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Force was stabbed in Tel Aviv in March 2016. His killer was shot and killed at the scene.

The Palestinian Authority is paying a salary to the family of the terrorist who killed Force, as it does to the families of all terrorists killed in action by Israeli forces. Terrorists who are not killed or who are imprisoned receive salaries directly. The longer they are in prison the more money is awarded. Palestinian leaders have long defended these payouts.

“It is the right of all of the prisoners and martyrs who have struggled and sacrificed for Palestine to receive their full salaries from the PA,” Hassan Abd Rabbo, spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs has said.

Such payouts make up a significant portion of the Palestinian Authority budget. In 2017, the Palestinian Authority took in an estimated $693 million from international donors, but allocated nearly $345 to pay terrorists and their families.  

According to the official congressional website, the Taylor Force Act will halt U.S. payments to the Palestinian Authority until that body:

  • is taking steps to end acts of violence against U.S. and Israeli citizens perpetrated by individuals under its jurisdictional control, such as the March 2016 attack that killed former Army officer Taylor Force;
  • is publicly condemning such acts of violence and is investigating, or cooperating in investigations of, such acts; and
  • has terminated payments for acts of terrorism against U.S. and Israeli citizens to any individual who has been convicted and imprisoned for such acts, to any individual who died committing such acts, and to family members of such an individual.

Although the Palestinian Authority is technically a secular nationalist organization in direct opposition to radical Islam, Palestinian leaders have long used Islamist rhetoric to incite the population to carry out acts of terror against Israel. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in 2015 slammed Jewish access to the Temple Mount saying, “Al-Aksa is ours and so is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. They have no right to desecrate them with their filthy feet. We won’t allow them to do so and we will do whatever we can to defend Jerusalem.”

Who Supports the Bill?

The bill enjoys bipartisan support despite being drafted by Republicans. The Senate bill was sponsored by Senator Lindsey Graham. Democrats were persuaded to support the bill after concerns that the U.S. would continue to provide direct humanitarian aid, such as paying for water, were addressed. It is predicted to pass and become law.

“With this legislation, we are forcing the PA to choose between U.S. assistance and these morally reprehensible policies, and I am pleased to see this measure move forward in both chambers with so much support,” committee chairman Ed Royce (R-California).

The bill is also supported by a network of pro-Israel think tanks and political organizations.

Passing the act “will mark a vital step in the larger fight against terror, improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians, and defend our values,” Dr. Michael Makovsky, president and CEO of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, wrote in The Hill.

How is the Bill Progressing?

The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee passed the bill unanimously on Wednesday. The bill will now come before the House of Representatives for a floor vote. Parallel legislation has been introduced in the Senate and will have to pass both houses to become law. The Senate’s version of the Taylor Force Act passed the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee in August.

The Taylor Force Act passed the committee alongside two other bills targeting Palestinian terrorism. One, the Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act, will impose sanctions on Hamas for its use of human shields. The other, the Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prevention Act, imposes sanctions on foreign persons, agencies and governments that assist Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad or any of their affiliates.

PATRIOTS: Should The U.S. WITHDRAW From UN Human Rights Council Because Of THIS?!


URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2017/06/patriots-u-s-withdraw-un-human-rights-council/

Is the UN ‘Human Rights Council’ a big joke? Read on and find out…

Our new UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, has made it pretty clear that she’s disgusted with the bias against Israel and the failure of the alleged ‘Human Rights Council’ to battle actual human rights abuses.

After the sham of the last meeting, the United States is now considering withdrawing from the anti-Israel Human Rights Council.

Highlighting what it deemed a ‘biased’ stance on Israel, UN ambassador Nikki Haley said the US was ‘looking carefully’ at its role on the Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

‘The United States is looking carefully at this Council and our participation in it,’ Haley told the Geneva forum in her first address. ‘We see some areas for significant strengthening.’

She said it was ‘hard to accept’ five resolutions had been passed against Israel, a US ally, while none were considered against Venezuela, which is in the grips of bloody protests over the rule of its president Nicolas Maduro.

She called on the Council to address serious human rights violations in Venezuela and for President Maduro’s government to give up its seat in the 47-member UN body unless it gets its ‘house in order’.

It came as the UN’s top human rights official Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein called on Israel to pull out of Palestinian territories captured in 1967.

This is par for the course at the UNHRC.

(Aside: Is it just me, or should you just simply not trust anything with the initials ‘HRC’… Amirite?)

The UNHRC continually attacks Israel for existing, siding with terrorists, and completely ignoring human rights abuses by socialists.

She called on the Council to adopt ‘the strongest possible resolutions on the critical human rights situations in Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Belarus and Ukraine’.

Haley went on to say it should ‘follow up’ to prevent further human rights violations and abuses in those countries.

Haley described the UNHCR as ‘so corrupt’ weeks after becoming Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations.

This thing is a joke. As demonstrated by Saudi Arabia — a country with tons of human rights abuses and funders of terror — was re-elected to the council last year. Saudi Arabia, with their atrocious record of women’s rights, was also elected to the United Nations Women’s Rights Commission. This just shows you that the United Nations is a joke.

This is asinine. Why the hell are we still a part of this thing?

I agree with Krauthammer.

Don’t even hold these sham meetings on American soil. Especially not in Manhattan. Turn the damned thing into Condos and make them meet in Bhubaneswar, or Caracas, or Mogadishu, or some other God-forsaken hellhole with no international airport — like Ottawa, Candanistan.

President Trump had denounced the UN as a ‘club for people to have a good time’, so take away the good time and the ones serious about these issues will stay to make a difference. Otherwise, it’s just a lot of noise that’s costing us a whole lot of money. And some pretty prime real estate.

You know what I think.

What do YOU think?

Do we need to withdraw from the UNHRC because of their anti-Semitism?

Palestinian Leader Calls for Killing of Israelis, Just One Week after Palestinians told Trump they Teach their Kids “Peace”


Reported By Onan Coca | May 31, 2017

Over the last few weeks President Trump has met with Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas a couple of times. The first meeting they had seemed to go pretty well, with the President happy to hear Abbas say that the Palestinian people wanted peace. However, between that meeting and their second meeting, President Trump learned that Abbas had been lying to him.

President Trump, never one for beating around the bush reportedly berated Abbas in their second meeting for having lied to him.

According to a report by Israel’s Channel Two an angry Trump yelled at Abbas during their talks last Tuesday because of the Palestinian Authority’s continued incitement against Jews and against Israel.

“You tricked me in DC!” the President was reported to have hollered at the stunned Palestinian, “You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement.”

Abbas then reassured the President that the Palestinian people wanted peace and that Palestinian parents were raising their children to be peaceful. As we know, this is a lie. We have seen the propaganda that the Palestinian schools teach their children, we have heard the songs that their children sing about stabbing Jews, and we have seen the TV shows where colorful puppets speak of the wonder of murdering Jews. But Abbas swore up and down that the Palestinian people just wanted peace…

So then why are his chief lieutenants writing op-eds telling their people to pick up guns and kill Jews? Just last week a member of the PLO’s leadership published a piece urging his fellow Palestinians to find a way, any way, to violently revolt against Israel.

From Newsmax:

Issa Karake, the PLO’s Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs director, accused Israel of trying to kill Palestinian prisoners who ended a 40-day hunger strike the day after his article was written.

“They (i.e., the prisoners) are being murdered [by Israel] in silence, through an official and planned method,” Karake wrote Wednesday on Prisoners’ Affairs commission’s website. “They are melting, bleeding, and dissipating. If one prisoner will fall, the entire world will fall. The world will die if a Palestinian prisoner will die . . . Break the pens, look for a gun and bullets. Do not look at your watches, the time is up . . . “

Two additional calls to arms were added when the Palestinian news site Al-Quds published the article a day later: “enough, let every one of us look for a gun and bullets.”

 

Maybe this is what Abbas meant when he said they were teaching their kids about peace? Maybe he was saying that once the Palestinians kill all the Jews, there will be peace?

Wake up America. The Palestinians aren’t an “oppressed” minority, they are a nation of terrorists hell-bent on murdering every Jewish person living in the Middle East. Israel could give them the West Bank and the Gaza strip tomorrow, they could pull all of their soldiers away from Palestinian territory, they could open the borders to allow Palestinian held territory to trade with whomever they want, and the Palestinians would simply use that as an opportunity to kill as many Jews as possible. How do we know? Because that is exactly what has happened every time Israel has given any concession, or signed any “ceasefire.” The Palestinians never actually cease firing, and they won’t, until the Jews are dead.

Israel is the good guy and we need to remember that.

A 23-year-old Christian tourist was stabbed to death by a Palestinian man as Christians gathered to celebrate Good Friday, ABC News reports.

The attack took place on a tram close to the Old City, where tourists from around the world have come to commemorate Easter and Passover. The woman died shortly after she was brought to a medical facility, despite efforts to save her. The 57-year old Palestinian attacker was apprehended by police.

Local media quoted witnesses as saying the man stabbed the woman multiple times. Reports said a pregnant woman was injured when the light rail came to a sudden stop. The attacker was apprehended by officers at the scene, police said.

Reports indicate two others were injured as well.

According to ABC News, Palestinians have killed 42 Israelis and two visiting Americans since September 2015. The Palestinian Authority regularly incites violence and acts of terror against Christians and Jews in Israel.against-america

Governments around the world are taking steps to prevent attacks by radical Islamic terrorists over the Easter holiday. Authorities in Kosovo claim they have already intercepted plans for such an attack.
