At a cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu applauded the signing of the Taylor Force Act, which was part of the omnibus spending bill signed Friday.
It suspends U.S. foreign aid until the practice of rewarding Palestinians for violence against Israelis and Americans, comes to an end.
The act is named after a U.S. Army veteran and Vanderbilt student stabbed to death by a Palestinian in 2016.
“They invest in encouraging terrorism and cultivating the families of terrorists and the murderers themselves. I think it’s a powerful signal by the U.S. that changes the rules. It shows it is not willing to accept past truths, or as I would say, the past lies – lie after a lie – and stands for truth after truth. I congratulate the American congress and President Trump for this decision.” -Benjamin Netanyah, Israel prime minister
Netanyhau has been a consistent supporter of President Trump, thanking him for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and for the intent to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the old city.
