Hating Trump Even More. Elliott Abrams Asks Why Congress Continues To Support Palestinian Terrorism With Our Tax Dollars?

The above was sent to me by a dear friend and fellow memo reader some 45 years too late.
As I have repeatedly said,  the best way to get rid
of a bad law is to enforce it and that is what Trump
is doing to the dismay of liberals.

The Obama crowd enforced laws they liked and
ignored those they did not. They disregarded that
we are a nation founded upon the rule of law because
adhering to the constitution was not one of their goals.
After all, Obama's mission was to radicalize our nation
and bring about unwanted change.

Trump campaigned on a slogan based on returning
our nation back to its former greatness and this
meant enforcing laws that protect our borders, having
low tolerance for criminality and believing our enemies
deserve to be challenged.

So far he is making every effort to live up to his
commitment. Consequently, the anti-Trumper's hate
him even more.

How is Sweden doing?  Go to Prager U Video and find out.
Elliott Abrams once again questions why the world does not stop supporting Palestinian Terrorists. (See 1 below.)
1) Stop Supporting Palestinian Terror - Elliott Abrams 
  • Since the "Middle East Peace Process" began in 1993 with the Oslo Accords, the U.S. has permitted the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to get away with fostering, celebrating, and honoring murder. It's time to end this scandalous American policy and insist that the Palestinians meet standards we would apply to any other aid recipients anywhere else in the world.
  • Palestinian official bodies celebrate those who kill Israelis by naming streets, schools, and parks after them. The message to young Palestinians is clear: This is the behavior we honor and these are the models you should follow. Moreover, the PA and PLO pay money to those who commit crimes of violence against Israelis - and the greater the crime, the more you get paid.
  • There is a sliding scale, and the longer your sentence, the higher the stipend. Issa Abed Rabbo, who shot to death two Hebrew University students he found hiking, and Abu-Musa Atia, who used an axe to murder Isaac Rotenberg, an elderly Holocaust survivor, are getting $3,500 a month.
  • There is growing support in Congress for the Taylor Force Act, named after an American student and U.S. Army veteran who was murdered last year by a Palestinian terrorist. It would restrict funds "available for assistance for the West Bank and Gaza" unless the president certified that the PA was "taking credible steps to end acts of violence against Israeli citizens" and that it had "terminated payments for acts of terrorism against Israeli citizens."
  • There will never be peace if generation after generation of Palestinian youth are reared to honor terrorists. The greatest barrier to peace is a Palestinian political culture that elevates violence against Israelis above any positive achievements.
  • Perhaps a majority of Palestinians would rather forgo the assistance than stop honoring terrorists like Taylor Force's killer as "martyrs." But we will have taken a stand; we will have made it clear that we find such conduct intolerable.
