US secretary of state says Palestinian Authority intends to cease allowances to those jailed for attacking or killing Israelis!
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told senators on Tuesday that the Palestinian Authority has changed its policy and intends to stop paying the families of terrorists jailed for attacking or killing Israelis.
They have changed that policy and their intent is to cease the payments to the families of those who have committed murder or violence against others, Tillerson said. We have been very clear with them that this [practice of paying terrorists] is simply not acceptable to us.

Add this one to your Trump accomplishment list!
“When Trump met with Abbas in Washington on May 3, the White House said the US president brought up the issue with the Palestinian leader.”
What, the son of Allah didn’t get the job done but Trump did.
Why I can’t believe this.
sure they have
Of course, the PA would never lie, right?
Tillerson lives in a fairy tale world.
Amazing what one can do when he tells the other in no uncertain terms from a position of strength.
Trust with skepticism and verify yugely.
“Of course, the PA would never lie, right?”
You mean like this?
“Trump furious with Abbas: You lied to me”
“Trump yelled at Abbas, You lied to me, Israeli TV reports”
But, Trump has them on record. So if they lie, again, this gives Trump the moral right to act accordingly.
Yeah, sure they have. [/s] They’re just going to be more covert about it.
I am beting it is all words no action. the Palestinians are counting on us and the president loosing interest and as long as it does not make the news continuing the practice.....My bet is that what ever threat trump gave to there Palestinians to get them to say they wont be paying the family of suicide bombers. trump will have to fallow through with his threat.
In other words:
The Obama administration State Department was funneling money to the Palestinian Authority so they could reward their terrorists using US Cash, that policy is now over, the US will no longer fund the rewarding of terrorist acts by the Palestinian Authority members.
My view, precisely.
Out in the open where everyone can see it perhaps.
“In February, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) introduced the Taylor Force Act, which would cut US funding to the Palestinian Authority if it continues to provide monetary support to the families of those who commit acts of terror against Israelis and others.”
The PA understands money. They would not do so unless we held withdrawal of funds over their head. But of course they will still filter money to terrorist families but not do so openly.
Add this to “do we ever get tired of winning?”
This one is YUGE!!!
Yeah, I doubt it too.
Fanatical muslims love other fanatical muslims who kill jews.
Lindsey’s the MAN (I think).
