Congressmen Seek to End Palestinian Authority Stipends for Terrorists

2

Members of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee agreed on Wednesday to seek an end to a Palestinian program granting monthly stipends to convicted murderers and terrorists. At a hearing on the matter, Democratic and Republican members vowed to close a loophole in U.S. foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority which allows such payments.

The chairman of the committee, Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), characterized the program as a “pay to slay” system. Ranking member Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) said, “It is absolutely outrageous to pay cold-blooded killers and call them martyrs,” and that the program “won’t be tolerated” by Congress going forward.
