A lawsuit targeting President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken accusing them of violating the Taylor Force Act has been amended to add information alleging that the Biden administration was aware that it was supporting Palestinian terrorists with U.S. taxpayer dollars.

The Taylor Force Act was passed in 2018 after Taylor Force, a West Point graduate who served in the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, was murdered on March 8, 2016, in Jaffa, Israel, by a Palestinian terrorist. The official Facebook page of Fatah, the Palestinian Authority’s ruling party, called the terrorist who wounded ten other people, a “heroic martyr.”

The Taylor Force Act declares that the PA’s “pay-to-slay” program, which pays salaries to terrorists in Israeli prisons and the families of deceased terrorists, incentivized Palestinians to kill Israelis and Americans. It also barred the executive branch from using taxpayer funds to benefit the PA unless the PA renounces its “pay-to-slay” program and ends acts of violence against Israeli citizens.

The original complaint from America First Legal was filed on December 20, 2022. Among the plaintiffs are Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former Physician to the President for both President Obama and President Trump who now serves as a House Representative for Texas’ 13th district, and Taylor Force’s parents, Stuart and Robbie.

The defendants tried to have the case dismissed, but that was rejected on February 2, 2024.

“The amended complaint alleges that the Biden Administration illegally reversed the Trump Administration’s ban on Palestinian funding, spending approximately $500 million U.S. tax dollars for ‘Economic Support Funds’ in Gaza and in Judea and Samaria (the ‘West Bank’), and another $1 billion for the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) to directly benefit the Palestinian Authority (PA),” America First states. “It further alleges that the Biden Administration knowingly subsidized the PA’s ‘pay-to-slay’ bounty system, the expansion of Hamas’s military capabilities in Gaza, and UNRWA’s material support for Palestinian terrorism.”

“The Defendants have had actual knowledge that American taxpayer-funded assistance to Gaza and the West Bank, including Economic Support Fund awards and United Nations Relief Works Agency contributions, including assistance funneled through nongovernmental organizations, was being diverted to or used for the benefit of Hamas and other terrorists,” America First alleged. “Responding to the Biden Administration’s October 18, 2023, announcement of $100 million in American taxpayer aid for Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, the USAID Office of Inspector General, Office of Investigations, issued a situational alert stating that ‘The USAID Office of Inspector General (USAID OIG) has identified this area as high-risk for potential.’”


“The Biden Administration worked closely with the United Nations to increase the flow of funds and ‘reconstruction’ goods into Hamas-ruled Gaza,” the lawsuit noted. “However, the Biden administration knew that these so-called ‘reconstruction’ goods were routinely diverted to build Hamas’s tunnels and rockets. For example, on October 18, 2023, in the aftermath of 10/7, Biden perversely announced $100 million in ‘humanitarian aid’ for Gaza and the West Bank, the United States Agency for International Development Office of the Inspector General issued a ‘Fraud Awareness’ notification stating that there is a ‘high-risk for potential diversion and misuse of U.S.-funded assistance [that could] fall into the hands of foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs) including, but not limited to, Hamas.’”
