"House Bill Would Cut Aid to Palestinian Authority"


“A Florida Republican House member plans to introduce a bill halting U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) until it formally “recognizes Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state” and cuts off all ties with the terror group Hamas.
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.) will introduce on Thursday “
The Palestinian Accountability Act,” a bill timed to coincide with Obama’s meetings in the West Bank with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The measure would freeze all U.S. aid to the ailing PA. It would also cut aid to the United Nations should the international body recognize an independent state of Palestine outside of the peace process with Israel.”
