Rubio To Obama: Warn Palestinians Foreign Aid Is On The Line

President Obama should warn the Palestinian Authority that their new pact with Hamas has put their foreign aid in danger of being revoked, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Mark Kirk (R-IL) urged in a new letter today.

The Senators criticized the decision of the PLO and Fatah to pursue a unity government with Hamas, suggesting that it was in violation of the 2006 Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act.

Rubio and Kirk appeared pessimistic that Hamas would ever renounce terrorism or accept Israel’s right to exist, and suggested that Kerry make a public statement about the issue to strengthen the international credibility of the United States.

Their letter is a similar vein as the bill proposed by Sen. Rand Paul, (R-KY) which would defund aid to the Palestinian Authority until they recognize the the State of Israel, but suggests the power to do so already exists under current law.
