[Ed. – Double standard]
Top proponents of conditioning aid to Israel based on alleged human rights violations will not say whether they also support conditioning aid to the Palestinian Authority.
Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) both say U.S. aid to Israel should be conditioned on the Jewish state’s treatment of the Palestinians, which they claim violates international law. Neither congresswoman’s office responded, however, to Washington Free Beacon inquiries about their position on conditioning U.S. aid to the Palestinians in the wake of the Palestinian government’s murder of an anti-corruption activist last month.
The Palestinian Authority’s brutal beating of Nizar Benet, whose murder is fueling anti-government protests in the authority-controlled West Bank, is raising questions about the Biden White House’s decision to resume millions of dollars in funding to the Palestinian government.
