The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a bill that would cut off the Palestinian Authority and restrict humanitarian assistance. The House approved the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act on Tuesday by a vote of 361-37. The bill, initiated by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), cites the Hamas government’s refusal to renounce terrorism and recognize Israel in cutting off the Palestinian Authority and restricting assistance through non-governmental organizations.
