The Zionist Organization of America sent a letter to every member of Congress urging them to end all U.S. aid to the Palestinians because of anti-American statements made by Palestinian Authority leaders in response to the U.S. attack on Iraq. Ahmed Abdel-Rahman, a senior Palestinian Authority official, reportedly condemned the attack and called for an immediate halt to the bombing. Earlier this week while in Gaza, President Clinton told the Palestinians he would ask Congress to almost double the $100 million the United States currently spends each year on projects in the Palestinian self-rule areas.
