JPost: The legislation includes a Sense of Congress that the Secretary of the Treasury should find foreign financial institutions that flout anti-terrorism financial regulations to be of primary money laundering concern, “and prohibit the maintenance or use of correspondent accounts in the United States by such institutions.”

Cotton introduced the bill in a press conference alongside Republican senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ted Cruz (R-TX). Taylor Force’s murder led to the passing of the Taylor Force Act in both houses of Congress. The act cuts non-humanitarian US aid to the Palestinian Authority until it stops paying terrorists and their families.

“Such flouting of anti-terrorism financial regulations is only possible through the maintenance or use of correspondent accounts at United States banks for the benefit of terrorist organizations,” the bill reads.

(The legislation is named for Taylor Force, an American Army veteran who was stabbed in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian assailant in Tel Aviv in 2016. Force later died from his wounds)

Opinion: I am continually amazed by how few conservative Christians in my circle of friends and family are aware that the United States Government is directing US taxpayer money to the Palestinian Authority, who uses that money to pay terrorists and their families who have killed innocent Jewish citizens.

Trump Cuts $200 Million In Aid To Palestinians

The announcement comes on the heels of a review examining U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority. According to the official, Washington seeks “to ensure these funds are spent in accordance with US national interests and provide value to the US taxpayer.” 

The terror group Hamas’ control of the Gaza Strip was partly to blame, the State Department official said.

Biden administration to restore $235m in US aid to Palestinians

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

US President Joe Biden’s administration plans to provide $235m (£171m) of aid to Palestinians, restoring part of the assistance cut by Donald Trump.

Two-thirds will go to the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees, Unrwa, which has suffered a financial crisis since it lost $360m of US funding in 2018.

With anti-Semitism growing around the world, the Biden administration has revived Barack Obama’s love for the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent of Hamas.

By the way, the Hamas terrorist who murdered Taylor Force is celebrated as a hero by Hamas, and his family has been receiving martyr payments as a reward since 2016 courtesy of the US and EU.

In case anyone thinks this is happening in a vacuum, read this:

“I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:2
