The United States should cease its support for the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation, 62 members of Congress said in a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. The letter, which has been circulating the past month in Congress as part of a Republican-led effort, cites what it charges is the corporation’s continued support of violence and terrorism against Israel. Since 1994, the corporation, which runs a television and radio station, has received about $500,000 from various U.S. federal agencies.
