If you want to stop terrorists, you shouldn’t be rewarding them or their families for their heinous acts.
The White House seems to get that: On Wednesday, Al-Quds reported that Team Trump will demand the Palestinian Authority end its practice of paying terrorists and their families and stop funding Hamas.
The demand is part of a White House plan to restart Israel-PA peace talks — the subject of a May 3 meeting between Trump and PA President Mahmoud Abbas.
Peace talks or not, Trump is right to demand an end to rewards for those who slaughter innocents. However fair Palestinians’ political gripes might be, it doesn’t justify terror.
Plus, as we’ve noted before, US taxpayers fund the PA — and they surely don’t want their cash rewarding terrorists.
Stopping those payments won’t be easy. The PA has dodged past efforts to halt them, and Abbas himself regularly encourages terror attacks.
“Each drop of blood . . . spilled in Jerusalem is pure blood, as long as it’s for the sake of Allah,” he said in 2015, fanning the flames of a Palestinian terror spree that left dozens dead and scores more injured. “Every martyr will be in heaven.”
Let’s hope Americans finally have a White House that’s serious about ending that sick PA mentality.
