GOP Rep’s Bill Would Redirect Palestinian Aid To Israel, If State Department Can’t Certify Money Not Going To Terrorists

 

Republican North Carolina Rep. Ted Budd is announcing a bill Thursday that would require the U.S. State Department to redirect Palestinian aid money to Israel if the agency is unable to certify that none of the funds is being used to pay the families of Palestinian terrorists.

Under Budd’s bill, the Iron Dome Reinforcement Act, all of the aid money given to Palestinians would be redirected toward Israel’s Iron Dome defense program, if the State Department is unable to certify that the Palestinian Authority (PA) isn’t funneling any of the money to the families of dead terrorists.

Seven percent of the PA’s budget went to terrorists’ families, found a 2016 analysis Washington, D.C.-based think tank Middle East Media Research Institute submitted to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

President Donald Trump significantly slashed the amount of aid given to the Palestinians, but the U.S. still gave roughly $65 million to the PA in the 2018 fiscal year, according to the Congressional Research Service.

The State Department is already required to certify that none of the funds given to the PA are used to support terrorism, as a result of the Taylor Force Act, which Trump signed into law in 2018. [RELATED: REPORT: Insiders Say House Democrats Are Dozens of Votes Short of Impeachment]

Budd’s bill adds the additional stipulation that Palestinian aid money would be redirected to Israel’s Iron Dome program, in the event the State Department is unable to certify how the funds are being used.

“It has been estimated that between seven and ten percent of the Palestinian Authority’s budget is paid to families of jailed and ‘martyred’ terrorists. Since the mid-1990s, the United States has committed over $5 billion in bilateral economic and non-lethal aid to the Palestinians,” Budd said in a statement released to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“The Iron Dome Reinforcement Act of 2019 requires the Secretary of State to certify that no taxpayers’ funds are being used as payouts or pensions to the families of dead Palestinian terrorists like the Taylor Force Act. However, under my bill, if the Secretary cannot certify this, all funds sent to Palestinian authorities would be redirected to Israel’s ‘Iron Dome’ program which protects their country from Palestinian terror attack,” he said, adding: [RELATED: Bernie Sanders Reveals ‘Housing for All’ Plan and Would Cost $2.5 Trillion]

“Taxpayers deserve more oversight on where these funds go, and if any additional funds are going to be sent to the Palestinians, the taxpayer should be confident they aren’t being used to subsidize terrorist attacks against Israel. [READ MORE…]

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
