PA Still Paying Terrorists with US Tax Funds; Praises Its Pay-to-Slay Policy Despite US Law

The Palestinian Authority (PA) is continuing to pay out salaries to convicted terrorists using funds provided by the American taxpayer -- a policy that defies a recent U.S. law mandating the PA stop these subsidies or face a cutoff in U.S. dollars -- the Free Beacon website reports today (March 31, 2018).

Palestinian officials in recent days rejected a new U.S. law -- known as the Taylor Force Act -- that bans the PA government from providing salaries to terrorists and their families.

While the Taylor Force Act -- named after an American who was killed by a Palestinian terror attack in 2016 -- mandates the PA cease payments or face a cutoff in U.S. aid, Palestinian officials said they have no intention of ending this practice.

In fact, Palestinian leaders have continued to praise this so-called "pay-to-slay" policy, prompting concerns from Israeli and U.S. lawmakers.
