Bi-Partisan Congressional condemnations of the Palestinian Authority (PA) for inciting violence against Israelis, such as passed by House Foreign Affairs Committee on October 22, 2015 provides moral support, but do nothing to stop the attacks. Moreover, condemnations by Congress are often used to further fuel the Palestinian hate industry.
Take for example the July 27, 2001, H. CON. RES.202 — Condemning the Palestinian Authority and a variety of Palestinian organizations for using children as soldiers and inciting children to acts of violence and war.”
Fourteen years later, many of those children, encouraged the Palestinian leadership are teaching their own offsprings to do the same. Successful attackers and their families are glorified and are financially rewarded by the PA, and/or Hamas.
Today’s resolution, which was initiated by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R), also called on the State Department to “monitor and publish information on all official incitement by the Palestinian Authority against Jews and the State of Israel.” To what end?

The foundation established a website that “showcases agitating and inciting content calling for action against Israel, using religious imperatives and elements and visual means designed to evoke the users’ Muslim sentiments and influence them to take action. The content on the website includes: news on the subject of Jerusalem and links to videos documenting the terror attacks, glorifying the shahids and encouraging further terrorist activity. The website includes links to a number of videos produced by ISIS on the subject of Al-Aqsa and Palestine.” Clearly, the success of the
