Fact #1: The US federal government currently gives the Palestinian Authority more than $300 million in aid a year.
Fact #2: The Palestinian Authority pays the families of terrorists and their survivors about that same amount, which amounts to approximately 7% of its annual budget. This is pure incentive to murder!
Fact #3: Taylor Force, a West Point graduate who served in Afghanistan & Iraq died as a result of a brutal stabbing that also severely wounded 10 others.
Fact #4: Bashar Masalha, the murderer was given a hero’s funeral & glorified as a martyr. His family, as is the custom will be paid an annual stipend greater than the average Palestinian earns.
Fact #5: During the Obama era, U.S. payments to the Palestinians have averaged around $400 million per year. Under Obama the Taylor Force bill failed to receive a vote in either chamber.
