ABSTRACT

Taylor Force Act: Palestinian Terrorism-Related Payments and U.S. Aid [September 12, 2017]   [open pdf - 297KB]

"Some Members of Congress have increased their scrutiny of the Palestinian practice of providing payments to some Palestinians (and/or their families) who have been imprisoned for or accused of terrorism by Israel. Critics have asserted that because money is fungible, any aid that directly benefits the Palestinian Authority (PA) could indirectly support such payments. Congress may consider legislation--most of the bills are known as the Taylor Force Act--that could supersede existing provisions on the subject in annual appropriations legislation. The impact that the legislation could have on overarching U.S. priorities on Israeli-Palestinian matters is unclear."
