Maybe Is­rael pol­icy will work this time

The Palm Beach Post - - OPINION: THE DEBATE STARTS HERE -

Re­gard­ing “Trump pol­icy will feed ter­ror­ist ha­tred” (Wed­nes­day), at least the writer ac­knowl­edges they are ter­ror­ists.

Now, for why Pres­i­dent Trump stopped the money we have been giv­ing to UNRWA (a United Na­tions agency):

The Pales­tine Lib­er­a­tion Or­ga­ni­za­tion be­gan as a ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion but was al­lowed to open an of­fice in Wash­ing­ton in 1994 af­ter the Oslo ac­cords pro­duced hope for peace be­tween the PLO and Is­rael. Pres­i­dent Clin­ton bro­kered a gen­er­ous and his­toric peace of­fer that, sadly, was not ful­filled as PLO leader Yasser Arafat walked away.

Pres­i­dent Trump only with­held our $300 mil­lion por­tion of the UNRWA’s $1.24 bil­lion bud­get to show that we will not sup­port anti-Semitic text­books and anti-Is­rael ter­ror­ism and teach­ing chil­dren to hate and kill Jews.

As noth­ing has worked to bring Pales­tine to the bar­gain­ing ta­ble, maybe this will do it.
