We’ve written a lot about Daniel Wultz (here, here, here, and here)–the brave American teenage victim of Islamic terror who died, last week. Many friends of his Miami-based family, including Linda Maurice, have contacted me. Writes Linda:
Despite his pain, Tuly Wultz (Daniel’s father) is a man with a mission. He said to my husband Charles and me that while his leg will heal, his “chest has a hole where his heart was, and that will never heal.” As I tried to explain to my grieving 13 year old (she is having an incredibly tough time dealing with Daniel’s death… she doesn’t understand why all their prayers didn’t work), everyone needs to find a way to deal with difficult times. My way is
through writing and activism. It’s what keeps me going. And I think
fighting back is what is going to move Tuly forward too.
Today, Daniel’s parents, Tuly and Sheryl Wultz, were scheduled to appear with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, to press for American pressure on the Palestinians who continue to support terror. They were there to urge Members of Congress to vote for the H.R. 4681, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006.
The bill–which was heavily opposed by the Islamist lobby in the U.S.–passed, today, 361-37.
While we are no fans of PM Olmert and feel that his weakness and landgrab on behalf of Islamic terrorists only encourages more attacks like the one on Passover which claimed Wultz, we do support this bill. It has a number of measures we only wish our government would be forced to undertake. Until the Palestinian Authority takes serious steps to stop terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, has financial transparency, and a number of other reasonable conditions, the bill would:
* Restrict all financial and other assistance to the Palestinian Authority;
* Restrict all financial and other assistance to the Palestinian controlled-areas of the West Bank and Gaza;
* Restrict monies to UN agencies and programs helping the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza;
* Designate the Palestinian Authority as a Terrorist Entity;
* Deny Visas for PA officials and prohibit them from having representatives in the U.S., including diplomats;
* Target international financial institutions funding them; and
* Prohibit any U.S. officials from having any diplomatic ties with Palestinian terror organizations (that one should have been U.S. policy long ago).
So, which Congressmen voted in favor of Islamic terrorism?
The roll-call vote was recorded, and the following Congressmen voted NO to this (most of them are the usual loyal Arabs and anti-Semitic loons–like Kilpatrick, Conyers, Moran, McDermott, Kucinich, Dingell, and McKinney):
The following Congressmen abstained (including Jesse Jackson’s son):
Johnson, E. B.
The following Congressmen did NOT vote (including, conspicuously, Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell“):
(If your Congressman is not on any of these lists, he/she voted for the bill, a vote that should have been a no-brainer.)
