Report: US Senator Introduces Bill to Cut Palestinian Aid

Jan 8 2015 / 11:52 pm

Republican US Sen. Rand Paul introduced a bill on Wednesday that would immediately halt American aid to the Palestinian Authority, US media reported.

The Associated Press reported that the bill would cut aid until the Palestinian Authority withdraws its bid to join the International Criminal Court to pursue war-crimes charges against Israel.

“We are currently sending roughly $400 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Palestinian Authority,” Paul said, according to the AP. “Certainly, groups that threaten Israel cannot be allies of the U.S. I will continue to do everything in my power to make sure this president and this Congress stop treating Israel’s enemies as American allies.”
