SWC: US Must Demand the PA Rescind Barbaric, Anti-Semitic “Pay to Slay”; American Jew Murdered in Latest Attack

February 27, 2023

Following today’s murder of an American Jew, the Simon Wiesenthal Center reiterated its demand over the Palestinian Authorities “pay to slay” policy. 

“American taxpayer dollars continue to go to the corrupt Palestinian Authority that continues to promote murdering innocent Israelis," stated Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action for the Wiesenthal Center.

"One phone call from Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his counterparts in the U.K, France, Germany and Japan can force an end to this barbaric anti-Semitic policy. How many more have to die?," Cooper added.

The US must demand that the PA rescind the law it passed that financially rewards terrorists and their families for murdering and maiming Jews.
