Pass The Taylor Force Act


 

  • Taylor Force, a West Point graduate and former U.S. Army officer who was brutally murdered on March 8, 2016 by a Palestinian terrorist, while visiting Israel.

  • By killing Taylor Force, the terrorist became eligible for a $350 a month stipend for his family through the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) ‘Martyrs Fund.’ 

  • In 2015, the United States government gave $272 million in taxpayer funds to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

  • In 2016 alone, the PA spent $137.8 million on terrorists jailed in Israel and payments to the families of imprisoned terrorists or suicide bombers, in violation of the Oslo peace accords with Israel.

  • Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Doug Lamborn introduced the Taylor Force Act (TFA) this February.

  • The TFA would shut down this apparatus for incitement by cutting off funds to the PA until they publicly condemn these acts of violence, cooperate in investigations of these violent acts, and terminate payments to terrorists and their families.
