The PA's pay-for-slay program is why the U.S. Congress passed the Taylor Force Act this year, and part of why the Trump administration closed the PLO office in Washington and cut aid to organizations, including UNRWA and programs administered by USAID, that support the Authority. Since money is fungible, every dollar of western aid is one more dollar the PA can spend rewarding terrorists and their families.

With the bloody battle for northwestern Syria underway, the media is focused again on chemical weapons. However important, the larger moral and strategic issue is the murderous Bashar Assad regime's drive to reconquer all of Syria, backed by Russia and Iran.

Last month the Trump administration took the first concrete step in a new, potentially forceful approach to Iran by renewing sanctions and effectively departing the nuclear deal. Yet Tehran has responded with its usual defiance, including recently deepening its presence in Syria, threatening the Strait of Hormuz and reportedly putting missiles in Iraq.

For months now, recurring clashes between Israel and Hamas in Gaza have featured a mix of old and new. Always seeking innovative ways to target Israel, Hamas has debuted new tactics like indiscriminate airborne incendiaries and interspersing terror cells in crowds of civilians attempting to infiltrate Israel. But the purpose of such tactics follows a dangerous, underappreciated pattern of terrorist groups intentionally trying to delegitimize Israel's lawful self-defense.
