Sen. Paul: End Aid to Palestinian Government until They Recognize Israel’s Right to Exist

Will introduce measure this week in Congress
http://www.paul.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=1144

Apr 28, 2014 - WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. Rand Paul today released the following statement regarding his measure to make future aid to the Palestinian government conditional upon agreeing to a ceasefire and recognizing the right of Israel to exist:

"The recent announcement of a Fatah-Hamas unity agreement brings both danger and opportunity to the peace process, and the next five weeks may prove critical.

Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with an entity that does not believe it should exist and that has used terrorist tactics to seek its end.

That being said, the new unity government has a chance to put itself on the record as clearly believing in the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state, as Israel recognizes the right of a Palestinian state to exist. It should also declare an immediate and lasting ceasefire to enable negotiations.

If that is accomplished swiftly, the peace process can move forward with two willing partners.

In the absence of such a clear, unambiguous statement on the part of the newly unified Palestinian government, the United States should act to enforce the law and cut off aid to the Palestinian government until they recognize Israel's right to exist.

I will introduce a measure when Congress returns this week to make all future aid to the Palestinian government conditional upon this statement, with a cutoff date of five weeks from now if, upon its formation, the new government does not take this vital step toward peace."

It doesn't really matter what the Palestinians think or say. The peace process is joke and serves only to distract people from realizing there is a genocide going on. Their destruction has been planned all along.
