Hugh Fitzgerald: The Taylor Force Act Does Not Go Far Enough (Part One)

The recent UN appeal to the world to fund the Palestinian Authority’s “Pay for Slay” policy offers an opportunity to point out that the Taylor Force Act, which brought about this UN appeal, does not go far enough.

The Taylor Force Act is an attempt to prevent the Palestinian Authority from continuing to reward “Palestinian” terrorists and their families. The law ends American economic aid to the Palestinian Authority until the PA changes its laws, and ceases paying stipends funneled through the Palestinian Authority Martyr’s Fund to those who commit acts of terrorism and to the families of deceased terrorists. Families of individuals killed by Israeli security forces are paid stipends of at least $1,000 per month. The families of convicted Palestinians serving time in Israeli prisons receive $3,000 or higher per month, many times more than the average Palestinian salary. These sums have served as great incentivizers, both for those terrorists who choose to be “martyrs” and die while killing Jews, and for those who choose not to be martyrs (e.g., preferring to run Israelis over, or stabbing them, rather than becoming suicide bombers), it’s a way to support their families in grand style while they are imprisoned; when they are released, they continue to receive support from the PA.

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.
