House Dem Introduces Bill To Cut Military Aid To Countries That Support Palestinian U.N. Bid

Adam Kredo reports that Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) introduced a bill yesterday that would end U.S. military aid to any country that votes in support of Palestinian membership next week at the United Nations. As Kredo notes, “The legislation threatens to cut-off funding to those nations who take part in the Foreign Military Financing program, a U.S.-run initiative that provides loans for American military equipment and training” but “the president would be given the option to waive the prohibition on a case-by-case basis.”
