Woman whose family was murdered by a jihadist decries PLO's payments to culprits' families

The widow of a man who was murdered by a terrorist visited the White House and expressed her anger that the PLO would pay money to the families of the jihadists, undoubtably with the help of money taken from taxpayers:
An Israeli widow met with White House officials to express her dismay that the family of her husband’s murderer – who also killed two other relatives at their Shabbat table in July – would begin receiving a monthly stipend from the Palestinian Authority as a reward for carrying out the terror attack.

Michal Salomon’s husband, father-in-law and sister-in-law were stabbed to death on a Friday night by a Palestinian terrorist, Omar al-Abed, as they were about to celebrate the birth of a new child in the West Bank settlement of Halamish. Salomon and her five children escaped and the terrorist was shot dead by an off-duty soldier.

Salomon met with Trump’s Mideast negotiator Jason Greenblatt and “expressed dismay that the [family of the] terrorist would be receiving compensation from the Palestinian Authority for his action,” a senior White House official told the Times of Israel on Tuesday.

Also at the meeting were National Security Council staffer Victoria Coates, Salomon’s father Shlomo Dan Lando, her cousin Brian Zvi Lando, and her children — Avinoam, Reut, Amitay, Ariel and Avishay, the report said.

Her disappointment comes ahead of a critical vote on the the Taylor Force Act—named after a U.S. Army veteran killed in a terror attack in Tel Aviv—that would force the Palestinian Authority to end its “pay-for-slay” program providing financial rewards to convicted terrorists or else forfeit aid.
Well some good news has just come out: the Taylor Force Act has been approved by a committee in Congress:
Earlier today, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), passed the Taylor Force Act, which would halt American aid to the Palestinian Authority until the PA stops paying stipends to terrorists and their families. The committee also passed two additional acts targeting Hamas. [...]

“Since 2003,” Royce said in a statement, “it has been Palestinian law to reward Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails with a monthly paycheck. Palestinian leadership also pays the families of Palestinian prisoners and suicide bombers. These policies incentivize terrorism. With this legislation, we are forcing the PA to choose between U.S. assistance and these morally reprehensible policies, and I am pleased to see this measure move forward in both chambers with so much support.”
The Times of Israel has more. I should hope the rest of Congress makes sure to fully approve the act so that the PLO's monetary intake can be stopped.
