In a new report sent to Congress, the Biden Administration deletes an entire section on Palestinian terror and the support for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (the BDS movement) targeted at Israel. Jay, Jordan, and the rest of the Sekulow team discuss why the Biden Administration would omit these sections of the report - sections the Trump Administration included in their reports. We are also joined today by ACLJ Senior Counsel for Global Affairs Mike Pompeo to discuss. All this and more on today's broadcast of Sekulow .

Today I was sent to Congress's creation deletes section pounds.

Here in the support for boycott Israel talk about that with Mike Pompeo line from Washington DC line phone lines open for your questions right now. 1-800-684-3110 and now your host to sexual so any boost.

This is a report that is said to Congress a yearly edits report as part of the night you got the PLO compliance act so it's it's something that Congress requires the State Department to a report to Congress in this report, the by administration omitted specific references to the Pell city governments ongoing calls for violence, as well as its support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions over the BDS movement. Both issues which attracted Congress, which obviously resolve conflict in the Middle East just recently they were included in the trust administration's report from the State Department to the Congress, but they were deleted without the question is like with the rot emails we have covered as well as a FOIA why what is the purpose is to get rather Taylor force act exactly is it to subvert other laws that we did go in force against the Palestinian Authority.

If this was reported by the State Department's factbook. First of all, they took the report, which was almost verbatim with the report that the trump administration file this with the news reporter indicating and then what they did was they specifically as you said, jointly eliminated the references to Palestinian statements on BDS and is significant and maybe more so the incitement that take place within the schools at a specific prohibition in the funding mechanism. Now we sent we appeared before the human rights Council and we said that both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority vigorously teach anti-Semitism in their education system. This is in the report that we filed with the Gen. assembly of the United Nations women on top of this issue pokes for a long time. This was just back a couple weeks ago, when this legal document filed with the UN, but this does impact than the funding mechanism for all of this will yes divide administration continues to roll forward on all of these funding mechanisms for for the Palestinian government J, many of which, as you noted are in violation of US law. I think the Taylor force act is probably the most significant one but if they are going to try to circumvent that the last thing they can have is an official report from the State Department that says I know the Palestinians are still engaged in violence, which of course they are and the Palestinians are still supportive of BDS, which of course they are. So Jake, I really think this is an effort by the State Department to try to backfill secretary blink and promise that he's not gonna release this funding unless the Palestinian Authority reaches these metrics body meet Seesmic maybe just pull money report in turn a blind eyes to them during this is what so absurd, so they they know the metrics that the secretary of state set forth which was little talk with my pump a little bit later that the activities of the Palestinian Authority that focused on this kind of activity the incitement of violence and teaching in the schools and then on top of that the of course there'd be no good BDS movement name remote literally removed it from the report a report that was identical almost all the news reports indicating what the trump administration submitted just back in October right and it's all that's it like that said, this is a get a deliberate move to subvert US law that would prevent the funding going to the Palestinian Authority if you acknowledge these acts of terror the promotion of tear, boycott, divestment, sanctions movement against Israel because the Taylor force act and again taking a report and basically copy paste to get but deleting key provisions not. I asked if not just for political purposes. To the best of everything else did it but intentional I would've talked with that without former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ACLJ, senior counsel Jeff valve on a senior attorney with a siltation of the dirtiest in the next segment of the broadcast.

I talked about the significance of this deletion. You have to watch all this very carefully done to fleets done for a purpose, not by accident, and it's not just for political purposes will be right back on secular the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

It's called mission like it will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the worship ministry and what Obama care means to the pro-life in many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right question free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/2 second notice to state that we got a State Department report. This is a report that they have to do by law. It's at the 1990 Palestine liberation organization I commitments compliance act so it's is this such a statement reporting on whether not yet whether that they comply. So what should they be receiving US aid and if you look at the report last year which was basically copied verbatim in included that specific references to passive governments, ongoing ultraviolet, such as the roadway lie like that either, but specific references to it and at Ed specific events that occurred, then it also included the support for the boycott investment sanctions movement and as to issues that would be important when considering whether or not you were going to continue to flood the past deliberation that the committees the complies whether they were compliant or not that was deleted those two sections. In a report that was basically copy paste job was. Those sections got deleted and it's not just for political purposes to satisfy the squad or something like that. It's to get around other US law and it second is economic reasons that they're doing so. Jeff Almanza, senior counsel for the ACLJ's been on top of this, Jeff. What's personal your read on the situation here. Overall, by the by the ministration under the gains that took place under the previous administration under the Administration which really help normalize Israel in the region was having a long piece. Effective happening at the store.

Natalie truly historical and now they have committed. Divide administration and every time they speak about it.

They're committing to create a nice state of Palestine a state as we can see now. It seems to be perfectly fine for them that the state will be an overtly terrorist state that Housing Authority is simply a legal entity that successor to the PLO terrorist organization. It is noncompliance which means it remains a terrorist organization and the binding ministration is saying we must create a state using this organization instead of trying to whitewash this the 20th and that they are sending them million $290, which we know the Palestinian Authority using the fund to pay terrorists and now they are trying to eradicate the record, the fact that this ongoing excitement and violence, and payment for Terry's going on. You go to Israel and said this before experiences we all the experiences you will see a Palestinian youth school in school with their teachers walking down the streets you can share that experience again. I was walking through the old city of Jerusalem of a God in I thousand 5.10 12 of the marking a line and they were chanting something in Arabic and I asked our guide with these other two children saying with blood, and spirit. We will take back Palestine. They were indoctrinating these children in the killing and terrorism at the age of five and six years all and let me say this. I witness this and herded with my own eyes and ears.

So the idea with the law than Jordan is to not allow the Palestinians to get money from the United States.

If in fact this kind of activity is still going on the neck and the compliance act was almost 30 years old this compliance act.

The idea was you have to comply with this and certify the State Department certifies it in the previous ministration trump ministration said no, they are still engaged in BDS boycott the best and sanction and they are also teaching this in the school. We pointed this out gap in our filing with the United Nation's Gen. assembly human rights Council may go to Jordan. Actually we stated specifically that both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority vigorously teach anti-Semitism in their educations system.

The Palestinian authority teaches children to anticipate the end of Israel and subsequent reunification of Palestine as one nation. The UN condemned the PAN amounts for Doppler school curricula intact with the tawny towards Israeli which date which the it was akin to child abuse is what the UN said but yet our own State Department here is saying exactly the opposite vision for moving it be that this is that that is truth is that situation regret has it changed, maybe even set worse.

And remember, we've had the other countries in the Middle East. Say you know what a duff with dealing with the Palestinian Authority and with Hamas were to deal directly with Israel now because this idea that we have to solve this problem but you have bad leaders leading both in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. A terror group in the Gaza Strip, a former terrorist organization to the West Bank with really am taught of corruption just the corruption alone would be a reason not to send anybody because people like Lockwood Abbas advocate are billionaires, yet they verily job is been leader of a territory of S of pre-small group of people that the billionaires why because they siphon off body from from countries like the US were willing to keep Peggy to the spouse of Eli suggest what is the point, the political motivation here. Do you think I met my mom and I stand here and respond something to put what you think Jeff is the political motivation, progesterone, age about monthly accounts of ACLJ in international matters, and specifically delights in the Middle East. Go ahead Jeff made very clear and very disturbing images coming out of the United States over July 4 weekend in various places of the people burning on July 4 the American and Israeli flags and chanting from the river to the free Palestine shall be free. Which of the call and "the eradication altogether of the Jewish state to call for ethnic cleansing and genocide and the problem is this is gaining currency among a lot of the far left and now emerging you know it you know the far left is becoming part of the Democratic base until politically removing the years between American and native overt genocide will terrorism them there and they're trying to push for the company authority could be a state to try to pretend that the company authority is significantly different, there there there engaged in turn, excitement, and an and in preaching to the next generation continue to preach the total eradication of the state of Israel. And unfortunately, rather than push back against it is becoming more and more accepted on the left in this country and it's terrifying. We're fighting this by the multiple fronts. Let me be clear, we are at the United Nations on putting up with asking for television on is as much a social media. This will be filed at the United Nations adult exactly with this. This is called a written statements made by the European Center for Law and Justice. It was the it was filed on May 31 of this year's that's number one number two Jordan sent the letter just a few days ago to both the President Pres. Biden and Sec. Lincoln acknowledging and being expressing concerns on the anti-Semitism issue at the same time we have a petition up with over 630,000 signatures on it that pain is working with our office of governmental affairs we are defending students and professors at universities because Harry this has reached into the University level in the United States as well. Absolutely. And it has gone.

I should say it is exploded like a wildfire in universities.

Why because it first exploded like a wildfire in premier high pedigree universities and their faculty members or their students are now faculty members at other institutions and so they have essentially licensed the students to attack Jews and to attack the state of Israel, and it makes little sense. Okay, so let's talk about specifically here what were doing you and fan working on this in government affairs. When you've already sent a letter to Sec. Blanck and into the present and this letter reads is to adopt the international of the Holocaust reverence Association definition of anti-Semitism in the United States so that it is part of our loss part of our legal system. If we adopt that system. And then there's reasons for that. I specifically because of the rise in anti-Semitism receive in places around the world up over 400% 400% and as we point out and is never stated in the media will be talk about all these race issues that were talked about our country. Now at that, according to the FBI.

The majority of religiously motivated hate crimes in the US are committed against Jewish people, which only make up 2% of the population. Yet the majority of of hate crimes or crimes against people, specifically because of their religious background of their heritage so we put all that out anything I think is important because all of this is about the interplay of the laws that do exist, like the Taylor force act but but also in strengthening those laws so that it makes it more difficult for an administration like this to get around strengthening those laws during it's also telling the truth, both domestically and internationally, and a look if you zoom out.

This is sort of an effort to whitewash the Palestinian record on all of these issues and I think they're doing it mainly for two policy goals one is the one regarding talked about how the dollars to the Palestinian government during the other one is so that when they get back into a cozy relationship with Iran that there will be less pushback on it. Look our mission here is to tell the truth here and across the around the world.

That's why we wrote a letter present by the one you just talked about Jordan.

This is also a very huge reason that we have accreditation at the United Nations because were in it. Now where the United Nations is not going to hear the truth from the American administration on these issues. But guess what, if the American administration will tell United Nations the truth guess it will work in and do it we just did it in this report I appreciate Jeff Almonte's room with us. Thanks for working on this. Let me also say folks working this as I said on multiple levels at the United Nations.

Domestically in the White House. We brought this issue to the White House.

Also in the Congress. Your support of the ACLJ in our matching challenge month shows you the depth and scope of what we can do and be hearing shortly from the former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Your support of the ACLJ allows all of this, including the broadcast that happened ACLJ.org dissipate the matching challenge only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life.

We've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn, called mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the street and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is powering the right question for copy mission life today online/the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most important to you today online okay secular senior counsel for global affairs for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo icing tape right to it. There's a report out now that the Biden ministry should their State Department has removed sections on palaces incitement of terrorism in support of the boycott, divestment six movement from their mandatory report to Congress. It's a 1970 law that requires that report.

Are you concerned because this report was basically a copy and paste of the previous State Department port under the administration what you were serving Secretary of State. But for these deletions. I specifically all the support for incitement of terrorism and support for the BDS movement. Is this just added tip to give the Palestinian Authority a free pass record with reporting out what is left without it almost certainly intentional to your point that cut-and-paste what was done previously but my sense of meaning precisely what they were doing and it would appear that it is aimed at not having a factual record when they got to do the kind think they want to do to underwrite the Palestinians. Perhaps violate the Taylor force acting on a lot of reasons you would want to leave notes backed out in reporting to Congress. I hope that's not the case, but we thing the following to the next semester is a very different approach to issues in the Middle East you're talking about Ron earlier this is a very different relationship with Israel. A close friend and partner in their willingness to play quickly with tariffs in the West Bank and not hold accountable the folks in the Gaza Strip is something we've Artie been a lot of evidence from in the first five or six months of the ministration things. It's fascinating to me and all of this is we filed on May 31 of this year with United Nations door European Center for Law and Justice a written statement.

This is written submission, and we point out specifically that both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority teach anti-Semitism in their education systems. The PA teaches children to anticipate the end of Israel and the reunification of a Palestinian state. The UN itself condemned the Palestinian Authority and Hamas for adopting the school curriculum and textbooks that taught this hatred to Israel. Yet we have a situation as we raise that with the UN recited the UN's own precedent and then are heard. Administration takes a report that your department did just last year in October, almost verbatim is what all the news reports are indicating and they just omit the two sections about the most crucial BDS back that they are promoting boycott the best and sanction and the incitement to violence that you mentioned the Taylor Orsak I think that's what's going on here. They're just trying to level their own playing field or or remove the obstacles which are sense on that point is not only immoral but unlawful requirement.

Reporting should be going to be factually accurate. I think they know the Palestinians are inciting violence leave that out of the report would just be together would be to avoid the fact that not have to be a purpose for that purpose would be to make sure that when they go to underwrite the Palestinians weather that you and I relief agency under that is completely corrupt or or whether it's another method used to underwrite the leadership that they can say well we didn't violate the teleport of the note Mr. Thomas to be on the record for intent on doing now we know that the Palestinian authority is carotid. We know that money ends up in the hands of terrorist use to attack Israel.

Why is the administration so emphatic in reversing the policies that you put in place when we know what the outcome is going to be deeply left squat eight date they don't understand the value of Israel. As Israel, a pro-Palestinian in the ProCare and that there are promoting the kind think that we know the military throughout the region that we could write about. Leadership is so corrupt they rejected vaccines from the daily for 700,000 that affected people make no thank you.

We don't want that. The crop became taking money from all kinds of places and they are spending continued on their terrace pack. Whether that's a lot like the rocket about that.

I spent a lot of time in Ramallah and with those folks that they aren't prepared to engage in a serious conversation about how to, ability in the region. Ministration is all too close to right when you when you cuddle up to the Iranians with the deal when you now begin to underwrite the cost of your setting a real thing on not only go straight well you are going to take a tear in a direction hundred 80 different from, and a great deal more dangerous than American people. The other part of this is not just the deletion of their incitement of terrorism and violence is also the promotion of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement that was pointed out in the last report I sent to Congress.

That's all gone. Reportedly at the eye. The idea here is to receive this rise in anti-Semitism in our own country and around the world, but some places up anti-Semitic attacks up 400% and that it just how dangerous to ignore.

To put it all together say record a talk about the violence to whitewash the support.

Also, for these efforts like boycott, divestment six, which unfortunately are are gaining some support in academic circles of the United States and also with suburbs of Congress about the letter that was brought Nikki. I went to play for the bed and anything Medicare attack about God important indications of American support for those people who will get that religious freedom and will get real costs on top who are anti-Semitic or who engage in activity like BDS activity on the very fringes of the anti-Semitism activity you thought if we push back. We tried to deny funding to those schools is an awful lot of work to be done. We thing the right setting anti-Semitism in our big cities in Los Angeles and New York. We need to make sure were doing everything we can, and then helping country get right with God as well right of anti-Semitism around the world of the dangers for all of us got less and give your opinion this, the Palestinian Authority has to be dealt with by mean there's no question, but dealing with it. This way I think adds to legitimacy to it.

Regime is not legitimate and doesn't that in fact cut against the move for peace in the Middle East. We were completely clear point prepared conversations with about 30 had to be paired to engage right back that not just say no income for the last decade really really good outcomes for their own people.

Yet when you provide resources and money not only feel the terror you provide global legitimacy when America provides money to the global state just simply don't deserve it. It's always great for suggesting my company are joining us on the broadcast part of the ACLJ team take you Sec. Pompeii was always for these again we see the report receive the information able to bring you over Secretary of State previous State Department which he covered in the report that was correct about the policy authority by evisceration copy. Most of that like most of that report except for the part about the truth about the terrors of that is cited by Palestinian Authority and their support for the delegitimization of the Jewish state of Israel. The boycott, divestment and sanctions brusquely join our second half hour by four active record intelligence investment very different now to comment on this move by the State Department as well and are working at the ACLJ will be right back at the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be $10 gift becomes 20 oh $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family. Give a gift today online ACLJ live from Washington DC second half hour of the broadcast. If you are distorting us. Let me just quickly get you up to speed. So it's been reported. Now there's an annual report it's included in the policy liberation relation commitments compliance act. Folks, the State Department has to report to Congress each year about the compliance is the policy for this is specific to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, not not boss so it's it's whether.what are they doing are they being compliant with the law force to be compliant with US law, you can't get insight or support terrorism, and you can't try to delegitimize an ally that the Palestinian Authority is doing both of those and last year the State Department in the report cited not just the general statement of of the incitement of violence and terrorism but specific instances where Palestinian authority leadership was inciting violence and terrorism against Israel and also spreading anti-Semitism. They all that was included and also was included was their support by the Palestinian Authority of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement, which is a movement to undermine a top US ally are the number one US ally in that region of the world was a very volatile region in the world, if not the most volatile region in the world did the Bible ministration comes along, they've got issue the report now what they do is they take most of the report they copy and paste it except for the deletion of the Palestinian Authority support incitement of terrorism in the deletion of the Palestinian Authority support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement, which is also supported by the squad members are people like that. What this does when you'd would you do this is not just for political purposes is not just a piece of anti-Israel left in the United States so that certainly could be part of it is to is a work around existing US law, which if they were to admit in the report that the terrorism was occurring in the excitement was occurring.

The boycott, divestment sections movement be supported by the Palestinian Authority that would be possible that the funds we said over could be used for those efforts which the proper ministration said was happening so miraculous of those pods.

Now the Bible ministration just deletes it from history and acted like it exists right now it's all going down the it's like it never happened.

It was like he was never reported to Congress. The point what they're doing is to try to change the report by making those two omissions or to any of those out so that they can lay the predicate for funding. I think that's precisely correct and I think there are several questions that need to be answered in light of this fact that the Palestinian Authority is essentially indistinguishable from Hamas and other terrorist group Hamas is essentially indistinguishable from Iran. And so the question then becomes hoops and the deletion with respect to the Palestinian Authority is part of this, the question becomes, why is the Biden administration doing things and I think at the end of the day. They are preparing the United States to capitulate essentially to terror because the Biden administration is trying to follow into the gigantic steps of the Obama admin's adoration and the Obama administration did what it basically paid Iran to join the Iran nuclear deal and you and I said that the other to be a little bit of time that the limit time for the private but this is basically the same people now just been promoted since its Obama to it's the same people who were there before President Reagan became President.

All every one of them promoted and now they're in higher positions with more authority and more influence and more policymaking deceptive decisions and more influence on American relations to the Middle East and throughout the entire world State Department now that the White House that's what happened exactly this. All the same access to this practice where you take other people. The last time around.

Five. Ministration just got promoted the truth they would for the State Department to the White House.

They got higher level positions retarding record now for acting director intelligence we get back secular American Center for Law and engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those for their faith covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes 20 $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge. Make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms gift today online okay only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called will show you how you personally and the publication includes all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists ramifications. 40 Years Later St., Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/secular state report that is able report to Congress.

It was a very similar report to last year's report, except for now, what we are seeing the news was the deletion specifically of the Palestinian Authority's incitement of terrorism and their support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement were joined now by ice our senior counsel for policy and national security record. Now Rick just wrath about the fact that the State Department is sitting report which is almost identical to the report sent last year by the trumpet ministration except for these two very key provisions. We know it's not just about you know appeasing the left.

This is done to try and get around and work around US laws so that they could get funding back in US dollars back into a the Palestinian Authority, even after they've failed and failed so many years to even represent the people on what this is doing after the last year where career service officers have been collecting information about terror acts that the Palestinians have been doing this information has gone into the draft reports but the political people at the state by political people overlook the career officials and remove that information that had been being collected now this is denying facts is politicizing the situation.

All because they are rushing to try to have some sort of idea, but I don't think any DL is ever going to hold you don't make progress diplomatically. If you somehow ignore the facts and that's where I think where were different between the trumpet ministration we had to confront uncomfortable facts when it came to trying to molest or diplomatically.

Too many people in Washington state hand like a conflict doesn't exist and then schedule a big fancy line to pretend like they they make progress that is not progress that's ignoring the facts. One of things I just thought of is the fact that you based on the reports were saying. It looks like they buy ministration took the basic report that was issued by the trumpet ministration in October and then simply omitted edited out the section dealing with the incitement to violence and then of course also the section on encouraging boycott, divest and sanction one of things I just thought about was. I'd like to know how that happened because as you said something very important I want to underscore maybe we do this to a premium information act request. In fact, career people within these departments have been putting together this I want you to explain this again the incitement's the violence they had this information if it's at our government's fingertips. And yet, the administration decides to remove that probably political reason and that is to get funding to the Palestinian Authority.

We need to know how that happened and why. So_again what people you are working with this DNI's director of national intelligence would be gathering that now the administration is ignoring more of the action is done on a bilateral basis. So when I was US ambassador to Germany, I oversaw the writing of a lot of these types of reports whether the right parts or number of different requirements that we and the way it works is that you assign career diplomatic service officers to monitor all year long. You don't just follow this information overweight.

Mary served 11 years and we are very good at tracking information. It's gotta be new information. Just because the country did something in the past we start over every year and so if we call them out for given rights abuses that we call the terrorist acts that's not old information. That information had been collected through the years and so we were collecting information on the actions of the Palestinian Authority. We knew exactly where they were supporting terrorist activities that is new information that is not rolled over from past year and right now we have political people at the State Department. Looking at current information and same organic ignore it because we want to make some sort of diplomatic and so my point is rejecting work career foreign service officers is something that Washington media people usually get really tired About but somehow they're just ignoring this, since I think a freedom of information act request an answer for your team or government accountability team take a look at that immediately because I think that may be an avenue to find what the heck happened here. I like to see those emails going back and forth. What the report said what the career people were saying what actually happened here Mr. ambassador.

We know in the submission that we made the sale J on behalf of of our members and so forth made to the United Nations just this May that the Palestinian Authority diverts funds to reward murderers who commit terrorist acts against Israelis, the EPA paid approximately $300 million annually to support jail terrorist families and in one instance to Palestinian cousins receive significant payments from the Palestinian Authority after massacring a family of five, including a newborn baby. What in the world is the Biden administration doing aligning us this way with the Palestinians and undercutting and deleting the references to their terroristic activity. Why is Biden doing this. Why is his administration doing this. Can you put any sense that now Doesn't make any DL. They only had there been very political about somehow protecting the reputation of the Palestinian Authority so that they can justify why they're giving them so much money.

Imagine if in this part, we were able to be very specific about how the Palestinian authority is supporting terrorist activities that would be embarrassing for the binding ministration because they just gave him hundreds of millions of dollars. And so what they're trying to do is take away the actions to justify the money that they're given to them and so it's just the classic diplomatic for making sure that your goal of being nice and and having pleasant relations with another entity is somehow the call and somehow has to be supported and so therefore you get rid of the facts that contradict that outcome you say Rick to is the deletion of the boycott, divestment, sanctions portion while receiving a rise in anti-Semitism both vocally in the United States college campuses where anti-Semitism would being anti-Israel kind of they're all kind of melting together seat in Congress with actual members of Congress were supporting these groups and supporting the boycott, divestment sections will but this is also deleted receipt of 400% rise in anti-Semitic attacks this past year and rhetoric like the boycott, divestment sections of the rhetoric that goes with that that meets up to get it it it's inciting out its own right to not include the facts surrounding BDS and all of the groups that have been using BDS to attack Israel to attack Jews to make it seem like you know all of the. The anti-Semitism is justified because of what's been happening. I think it is really shameful and that's why I think when J says we go after you request the information surrounding how this came about. I really think that it's at 12 tracker Pro information that we can really use transparency should be our friend. We should be embarrassed by making sure that Mark of the career foreign service officers is not completely dismissed by political appointees in the Biden stretch. Now I want to do anything change scribbling notes here about what actually asked when you run it by you to because when I want to know is exactly what you said. If in fact the career folks in the agency's had the data provided that data to the State Department. I'm sure they did or to other agencies and then met yet the State Department comes off and omits that there has to be exchanges of information why they did that and how it happened, working to get to the bottom. Rick, thanks for your insight is always great to have you on the team and again folks without your support. ACLJ. None of this happens, and now we got any working right now on putting together a FOIA request.

Make protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms. Today online okay to secular just to add to this to the be significant to retirement. This funding what are we talking about what for its its new report is up by Fox news at Pell city and nongovernmental organizations that were funded by the US were introducing children if you will use that word to terrorism and terrorist activities. So the body is part of $500 billion in relief of the USAID ultimately got to six controversial NGOs. They received a total of $7.2 billion between 2015 2019 in the form of sub- grants that's that's important to point out, this was a program started by the Obama administration and of course the money goes out so the money goes out to the first grantee if you will add they did dole it out over years is $500 billion. So there's crossover into the trap administration. This money was Artie released. This money Artie been received to the initial ID initial grant was out but the trumpet ministration sees all this happy they start cutting all this funding off now. This funding is back and submit the powers back. USAID now so what what were they funding while they were introducing kids to convicted terrorist and children lobby on behalf of imprisoned Islamic Jihad members and at what protest they were funding children were chanting and anti-this is similar to like what you saw the streets of Jerusalem where were the prisoners until death behind you would to liberate liberation resist until death intifada until death. This was US money going to find terrorist indoctrination of children. Yes it was and it can is going to continue to be with Samantha power back in USAID. This is not gonna change as we said before, this is the replay of the Obama administration and the Obama administration policies. The trumpet ministration can only put the brakes so much on something that was already in the pipeline, Jordan, that was already moving forward and try to do so now with this it's been reversed back just for a moment on this FOIA.

I would like to know, and I think were going to prepare this through a Freedom of information act request to the Department of State who documents who show decided to omit the Palestinian org authorities terrorism activities in the BDS from the report to the Congress.

What documents reflected the decisions to delete who overruled the career diplomats, who probably assessed in and amassed documents showing that there was para terrorist activity by the Palestinian authority.

Why was this done what paper show this. This is the kind of things that we are going to put together Jordan in our team to ask these Department of State account of the people of the United States for Gary.

This is again II think it's pretty shocking fan, but this is this how Washington has been working for decades, many decades administration to administration, Republican and Democrat trumpet ministration came along and we just had to officials that now with us with Ricard Allen and Mike Pompeo shook this up. They said that we don't have to do businesses as usual over back to that so quickly as quickly bases the State Department to get to it. There deleting it from the report. It's like Palestinian terror does exist. BDS movie does exist and that's how this but that's how he turned back on the speak it in another $500 billion in the getting to groups that are directory kids terrorism.

Here's the truth about all this funding Jordan. Are there a lot of different buckets that it ends up in the region, there's the USAID there's unrest, there's the economic support funds which the Taylor force act is supposed to ban here's the truth you're in. All of those funding mechanisms eventually wind their way to the Palestinian government and they used in in the form of terrorism to advance their goals to wipe Israel off the map to oppose US interest. All of those funding accounts end up with the Palestinian government under and I really thought your interview with secretary Pompeo was enlightening on this and I think our idea of a FOIA is very important in this case, you need to see the back channel of how this decision-making I was made because while I fully agree that the reason that these sections were removed from the report is to be put to Lynn cover to let air cover if you will, for the funding that is now being released. That's not what US law requires US law requires that the Secretary of State personally certify that pay for sleigh and other terrorist acts have ended before that funding is released. Secretary blinking has said he's not going to do it.

You heard from secretary Pompeo.

That of course he didn't certify because even the Palestinian government admits that there still doing it.

So Jordan we need to find out whether or not that specific conversation happened behind the scenes and whether or not they acknowledged that they know US law requires the secretary to certify admitting it from this report Jordan in my provider cover.

But guess what, it doesn't comply with US law review Elliott face recruited. What is the administration worried about Congress saying that they had to delete it here it's that's what's it's not the members of Congress don't know this is going on. They have their own reports that information it's to bypass the loss the rules. It's to say they were on the record. We didn't certify basically that that the policy authority was inciting violence or terrorism and worthy authority on Congress.

You told us to give you a report it's not in there. It's not happening either as their support for boycott, divestment sections, it's not relevant absolutely. So essentially the State Department and the political branch of government. Do not want to admit the evidence which is right before our own eyes. I suggested earlier that the Palestinian Authority is indistinguishable from Hamas and other terrorist and that Hamas is essentially indistinguishable from Iran. Now we have evidence that the United States government is complicit.

If you will, in terror attacks on Israel. Why, because the United States is indirectly funding those terrorist attacks and so the State Department wisely. I think from a political perspective, they do. The State Department does not want to admit what they are actually doing so. They're trying to hide the ball there trying to suggest that they are indeed in compliance with the law we know, or at least we can certainly strongly infer that they are not, and I think it's time that the State Department and the Biden administration be exposed know I was thing about this Jordan you look at the activities that were engaged in here.

Where were dealing with in Congress. You addressed a letter to the White House we've dealt with it at the United Nations United Nations. So one of things here and he very quickly, as we are taking direct action on this and we've heard from over 630,000 people. Yes, that's a significant amount of people who want to know exactly what we want to know who decided to omit the Palestinian Authority terrorism from the report to Congress what documents reflect the decision to delete who overruled career diplomats where the papers where's the paper trail where the back channels within the find out the next sections court. This is this is what we get the ACLJason reporting the news is being reported today. We will be taking action that's that's what we do.
