Senator Bob Corker chairing a meeting of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which voted to approve the Act

"A Senate bill that would force the Palestinian Authority to end its program of compensating convicted murderers and terrorists in Israel passed through a critical committee markup and vote on Thursday.

The Taylor Force Act earned support from Democratic senators and several Israel advocacy organizations that were previously holding out for edits to the legislation. Sixteen members of the committee voted in favor of the bill, while five voted against it.

The act will now proceed to the Senate floor for a full vote.

The bill compels the State Department to cut off funding to the PA over its 'martyr' compensation scheme, but new language 'spells out the steps by which payments to the PA could resume,' said the office of Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, who authored the legislation... 'We absolutely cannot accept a policy that rewards acts of terrorism like the one that tragically took the life of Taylor Force,' said Senator Bob Corker, Republican from Tennessee and chairman of the committee, referring to the namesake of the bill– a US Army veteran who was murdered in Jaffa last year.

'This legislation will force the Palestinian Authority to make a choice,' Corker said: 'Either face the consequences of stoking violence or end this detestable practice immediately.'"

"Palestinian child terrorists as young as eight years old are increasingly being radicalized and spurred to carry out terror attacks on Israeli citizens, according to a prominent human rights organization that is accusing the United Nations of covering up the recruitment of child terrorists by Palestinian militant groups.

At least 79 separate terror attacks have been carried out by Palestinian children ranging in ages from eight to 17 since 2015, when a wave of Palestinian terror attacks began, according to Human Rights Voices, or HRV, a U.N. watchdog group that has accused the international body of engaging in a 'feeble cover-up' of this growing terror issue.

Palestinian leaders and other officials continue to praise the use of children in terror attacks and continue to encourage youths to take up arms against the Jewish state, according to HRV's report, which was provided to the Washington Free Beacon.

'In violation of [its] legal obligations" to prevent such attacks, 'there have been at least 79 separate terrorist attacks by Palestinian children since September 13, 2015,' according to the report. 'The preferred method of murder and attempted murder by Palestinian child terrorists are stabbings or knifings, the modus operandi in 66 of the 79 attacks.'

At least two of these attacks were committed by terrorists as young as eight, while another four attacks were done by children aged 12, according to the report. Thirteen-year-olds have carried out seven terror attacks, while Palestinian children 14 years of age are responsible for at least 10 of these terror incidents. The majority of these attacks were committed by children ages 16 and 17.

Palestinian leaders have celebrated the violence, even in the halls of the U.N., HRV found..."
