PLO Accountability Act of 2017

May 4, 2017
May 4, 2017
Referred to Senate (sub)committee

Introduced the day after President Trump met with PA president Abbas at the White House, this bill would strengthen restrictions on U.S. aid to the Palestinians. Specifically, it would bar the PLO from operating an office in the U.S. unless the president certified to Congress that the Palestinians had negotiated a peace agreement with Israel and “ceased hostilities” against it, had not obtained standing as a UN member state outside a negotiated settlement with Israel, had ceased to be members of the ICC, had stopped official government (PA) payments to individuals found to have committed serious crimes against Israelis or their families, ceased to “engage in a pattern of incitement against or with respect to” the United States or Israel, and had withdrawn or terminated any examination or investigation against Israel or Israeli nationals at the ICC.
