Taylor Force Act
Congressmen urge Treasury Department to blacklist Palestinian official
According to Reps. Zeldin and Lamborn, Palestinian official Issa Karake is directly responsible for the department that facilitates financial remuneration and other support for Palestinian terrorists.
The ‘forces’ behind US and Israeli bills to withhold ‘pay to slay’ terror financing
Both the U.S. and Israeli laws to offset funds paid out to terrorists represent the first major steps in holding the P.A. accountable for nearly three decades of incitement and terror financing. The passage of both laws is a testament to the relentless pursuit of activists Sander Gerber and Stuart Force.
Palestinians call Israel’s anti-‘pay to slay’ law a ‘declaration of war’
Palestinian Authority spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudaineh said the Palestinians consider this a “declaration of war against the Palestinian people, their fighters, prisoners and martyrs.”
Australia ends direct funding to Palestinian Authority over use of terror payments
“Any assistance provided by the Palestine Liberation Organization to those convicted of politically motivated violence is an affront to Australian values, and undermines the prospect of meaningful peace between Israel and the Palestinians,” said Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in a statement.
Stuart Force, father of Taylor Force, to attend ‘pay to slay’ vote in the Knesset
Stuart Force, the father of U.S. Army Capt. Taylor Force, who was murdered by a terrorist in Tel Aviv in 2016, will arrive in Israel for a Knesset vote over legislation that would offset salaries paid by the Palestinian Authority to terrorists from tax monies collected by Israel.
‘Pay to slay’ Knesset bill: ‘The PA will be forced to make a decision’
The bill mandates that the government deduct the amount that the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists from the NIS 8.5 billion (nearly $2.4 billion) per year of taxes that Israel collects for it, which will be then invested into a fund to pay damages to victims of terror.

Passage of the bill will reduce the amount of money the Palestinian Authority receives each month from Israel by approximately NIS 150 million ($42 million) per month—about one-quarter of the P.A.’s monthly allocation—unless it can prove that terrorists and their families are no longer receiving monthly stipends.
Waiver clause threatens integrity of Israeli equivalent to America’s Taylor Force Act
“We managed to get Taylor Force passed without any type of waiver whatsoever, which was a difficult and noteworthy accomplishment,” said Sander Gerber, a New York-based hedge fund executive who was a strong proponent of the Taylor Force Act. “Any Israeli equivalent of the law should also be passed without a waiver.”
It’s time to crack down on Mahmoud Abbas
The Palestinian leader has supported anti-Semitism and the murder of Jews his entire adult life, but much of the world pretends he wants peace.

Defense Minister Lieberman offers strong words but little action on Palestinian salaries to terrorists
The time has come to penalize the PA for its rewarding and incentivizing of terrorism. However, what is truly absurd, is that the person making the tough comments against the PA policy, is the same person who is responsible for a loophole that would invite external pressure and completely undermine the very same law that he is proposing.
PART 1 of series on Israel’s counterpart to Taylor Force Act
Will Israel pass a law to offset ‘pay-to-slay’ stipends to jailed Palestinian terrorists?
While America was able to pass its version of the Taylor Force Act as part of an omnibus spending bill, the Israeli bills to offset terror payments have stalled for months, highlighting key differences between the U.S. foreign-aid payments and Israeli tax-revenue transfers.

The end of the era of Palestinian deception
With the passage of the Taylor Force Act, which aims to deduct payments to Palestinian prisoners and “martyrs,” fissures are finally emerging in the terror organization’s iron wall of deception.
Israel must pass an effective version of the Taylor Force Act
The Israeli government controls up to 70 percent of the Palestinian Authority. Yet it chooses to continue allowing trade, and even making payments to the Palestinian Authority, despite the direct financial incentives the P.A. gives to terrorists who murder Jews. Simultaneously, Israel's Global Conference on Anti-Semitism almost entirely ignored the issue.
Taylor Force Act signed into law as part of massive spending bill
“I truly appreciate the hard work of the Force family and the many friends of Taylor Force who made it clear to Congress the practice of #PaytoSlay must be stopped,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who introduced the bill in 2016, tweeted on Friday.
