(TargetLiberty.org) – The Biden administration has just announced it plans to illegally send millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to Palestine. Now a Republican senator says this move isn’t just unwise and illegal – it will also cost American and Israeli lives.
Sen. @TedCruz said Americans and Israelis will be murdered as result of the Biden administration’s decision to send hundreds of millions of dollars to Palestinians during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday. https://t.co/k5mdInqKj1

On April 14, the White House said the administration will send $250 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), in violation of the Taylor Force Act. This 2018 law prohibits any US economic aid to the PA if the Palestinian leadership is going to use it to pay stipends to terrorists and their families, but Biden plans to ignore it and send the money anyway. Many people, including the governments of Australia, Germany and Israel, have indicated that they believe the payments encourage Palestinians to commit terrorist crimes.
Responding to the announcement, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) objected to giving the PA money if it’s going to use it to reward terrorists. He pointed out that in 2019 the PA allocated over $342 million for payments to terrorists and their families, and said that Biden’s decision means that a big chunk of that $342 million will come from the taxpayers including you and me.
