F ollowing Congressional passage of the Taylor Force Act, cutting US aid to the Palestinian Authority until the PA stops paying monthly stipends to terrorists, the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee approved a similar measure on Monday whereby Israel will withhold payments of taxes it collects on behalf of the PA in a sum equal to whatever the PA expends on its “pay for slay” program. Maurice Hirsch, the former IDF head of military prosecution for Judea and Samaria — and current head of legal strategies for Palestinian Media Watch, an NGO that monitors Palestinian incitement — says he hopes both the US and Israeli laws will serve as a financial one-two punch that will pressure the Palestinians to reform their ways.
