Take action; support Congressman Lowey!

(United States) Rep. Nita Lowey, Foreign Operations Chairperson, is demanding accountability from Abbas on statements he has made in Arabic in the Jordanian press. She spoke of taking away the $150 million in funding promised to the 'Palestinian Authority.' In addition to Abbas's Jordanian statements, the PA official newspaper put a picture of the terrorist who perpetrated the attack on Thursday in Jerusalem on the front page calling him a ‘holy martyr.’ As long as the endorsement of terrorism is still going on in the PA there will never be the possibility of peace. We must do all we can to hold them accountable.

We suggest that you call Rep. Nita Lowey thanking her for demanding accountability from Abbas and the PA for their statements, and that you call or email the White House demanding that they hold the PA accountable for their endorsement of terrorism.

Here is a suggested statement:

We call on the United States to hold PA Prime Minister Abbas and the official PA newspaper accountable to the 2008 Foreign Operations Bill for advocating or honoring terrorist activity. The PA newpaper called the perpetrator of last Thursday’s attack a ‘holy martyr’ and Mr. Abbas spoke with pride of violence he had waged in his past, suggested that terrorism could start anew in the future. Is this the PA that we want to be funding?
