Taylor Force Act
Waiver clause threatens integrity of Israeli equivalent to America’s Taylor Force Act

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.
