“Palestinian terrorists have wounded or killed more than a dozen Israelis over the last few months, including 45-year old American-Israeli Ari Fuld,” Sen. Cruz said “The Palestinian government continues to provide hundreds of millions of dollars each year rewarding such terrorists and their families, providing an incentive for ever more violence. It’s past time for Congress to impose direct costs on the Palestinian officials who manage the programs that provide these rewards.”
