Send this message to your member of Congress:
Please co-sponsor the Taylor Force Act
This week, Senators Graham, Blunt and Cotton introduced the Taylor Force Act in the Senate, and Representatives Lamborn and Zeldin introduced companion legislation in the House (H.R.1164). If you’ve not already done so, I urge you to co-sponsor this important legislation.
The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) longstanding incitement of violence against Israelis through textbooks, television and social media is well known. What’s less known – but even more troubling – is the PA’s policy of providing generous lifetime payments to terrorists who are imprisoned for murdering Israelis. If the terrorist dies in the course of his attack, his family received these payments. These payments are hardly random — they are required under legislation passed by the Palestinian legislature.
The United States provides the PA with approximately $300 million in aid each year. The PA pays approximately $300 million to terrorists and their families ever year. There is no way around this troubling reality: our taxpayer dollars are being used to fund terrorism.
For the sake of Taylor Force and his family, and for the sake of peace, I ask that you co-sponsor the Taylor Force Act.
There will never be peace between Israelis and the Palestinians so long as one of these parties funds terrorism against the other. Please act today to stop PA funding of terrorism.
This bill is named after Taylor Force, a West Point graduate who who survived tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan only to be murdered in Israel by a Palestinian terrorist.
Today we ask you to stand up for Taylor Force. We ask you to stand up for Israel. And we ask you to take a stand against terrorism.
