Knesset Member Behind Israeli Taylor Force Act: Palestinians Will Learn ‘Terrorism Doesn’t Pay Off’

Following the Knesset’s passage earlier this week of an Israeli version of the Taylor Force Act, Palestinians “will gradually understand that terrorism doesn’t pay off,” one of the bill’s co-sponsors told The Algemeiner on Thursday.

Yesh Atid MK Elazar Stern — joined by Likud MK and Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Avi Dichter — was the main driving force behind the legislation, which mandates the freezing of the transfer of tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority (PA) equal to the amount of money the PA provides to imprisoned terrorists and the families of others who were killed while carrying out attacks.

“I certainly believe that the law will weaken the PA mechanism that encourages terrorism and incentivizes it economically,” Stern said.

“I also believe and very much hope that it will be a step forward towards reconciliation and peace,” he added.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
