The Graham-Schumer-Barrasso-Menendez measure:

In a rare showing of bipartisan solidarity, members on both sides of the congressional aisle, in both chambers, are uniting to call for the defunding of the Palestinian Authority. 
According to a report recently posted on the congressional website of Senator Lindsey Graham…
U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Chuck Schumer (D-New York), John Barrasso (R-Wyoming), and Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey) have introduced legislation which takes a tough line against the Palestinians’ recent appeal to the United Nations General Assembly for recognition as a ‘non-member observer state.'  
The Graham-Schumer-Barrasso-Menendez measure:
  • Forces the immediate closure of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's (PLO) office in Washington unless the Palestinians have entered into meaningful negotiations with Israel.
  • Eliminates American foreign assistance to the Palestinian Authority if the International Criminal Court adjudicates any matter proposed or supported by the Palestinian Authority.
Senator Graham publically blasted the Palestinian’s subversion of the United States wishes and disregard for the 1995 Oslo Agreement…

“Granting United Nations membership to the Palestinian authority is a nightmare in the making for the peace process and future relations between the Congress and UN… I fear the Palestinian authority will now be able to use the United Nations as a political club against Israel. Most importantly, they will file complaints in the International Criminal Court against the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) or any other Israeli institution engaged in defending the Jewish state. 
This provocative step by the Palestinians could lead to using the International Criminal Court as a forum to marginalize the state of Israel, an action that will not be accepted without consequence in the Congress. We will not use American taxpayer dollars to support a Palestinian entity whose primary goal, if they file a complaint in the ICC, is to marginalize the Jewish state rather than live in peace with the people of Israel.” 
United States taxpayers have footed the bill for $2 billion in aid to the Palestinians under the Obama administration. 
Senator Menendez said the recent rogue P.A. move for recognition could ignite further tensions in the Middle East… 

“This unilateral approach by the Palestinian Authority to gaining sovereignty is provocative, reckless, and threatens to inflame passions throughout the region.”
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), a pro-Israel U.S. congresswoman, is also rallying members of Congress to stop all funding to the Palestinian Authority. 
We must tell our legislators NOW that we want them to STOP President Barack Obama from sending billions of dollars in taxpayer money to terrorist nations and organizations with close terrorist ties – like the Palestinian Authority! 
Our Liberty Counsel Action petition to Congress demands: NOT ONE MORE DOLLAR to the Palestinian Authority!  
Because of the rising level of support in Congress, we are now planning our petition delivery to both the House and Senate Foreign Affairs Committee members on December 14th. 
That gives us just two days to rally as many names on this petition as possible! 
Patriots, we really want to deliver 50,000 names or more and need your name included in this petition delivery.  Would you take one minute right now and add your name?  Click here to join us in this important message to Congress:  

++The Obama administration needs a Department of Common Sense!  
While America’s economy struggles – and our representatives are haggling over avoiding a “fiscal cliff” – our misguided government is sending billions of dollars in aid to appease our enemies, including the refurbishment of Mosques that teach and promote the annihilation of the United States and Israel! 
Defunding the Palestinian Authority makes fiscal sense and foreign policy sense. 
Patriots, I am pleased that many thousands of friends have already signed the petition calling for our elected representatives to defund this anti-Israel, pro-terrorist nation – but I need many more names to deliver to Capitol Hill.  
I hope you will sign our powerful petition and join us in aggressively declaring: NOT ONE MORE DOLLAR to the Palestinian Authority! Please go here to sign:
After signing, would you forward this message to as many of your pro-Israel friends as possible?  That additional step will be greatly appreciated by our many contacts in Israel, including their senior leadership. 
Thank you for standing with us!
Mathew Staver, Chairman
Liberty Counsel Action
P.S. We must seize the momentum in Congress calling for the defunding of U.S. aid to the Palestinians.  Please sign Liberty Counsel Action’s powerful petition to STOP all U.S. funding of the Palestinian Authority:
