As Trump Meets Abbas, Victim Families Press Issue of Financial Rewards for Palestinian Terrorists

As President Donald Trump greeted Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA), at the White House on Wednesday, relatives of Palestinian terror victims and their supporters again raised grave concerns over the generous payments made by the Palestinian Authority to the families of terrorists.

The PA currently spends $300 million annually on the payments – close to 8 percent of its budget. Critics say that the PA actively incentivizes terrorism, by promising financial rewards and national glory for those who participate.

On the eve of Trump’s meeting with Abbas, an anonymous White House source told Reuters news agency that the president would press for an end to the payments. This follows the introduction of the Taylor Force Act in Congress – named for the 28 year old US Army veteran murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in Tel Aviv on March 8, 2016– which would limit US aid to the PA until the payments are stopped.
