Eliot Engel severely weakens Hamas sanctions bill after lobbying from Qatar, Islamic lobbyists

17

Eliot Engel (D-NY) watered down an anti-Hamas bill that could have impacted the terror organization. Jewish organizations let it happen without a protest.

Rep. Eliot Engel is a total disgrace and coward. This act of appeasement by Engel is likely due (at least in part) to the primary challenge he is facing from a far-Left Democrat. As expected there was no push back from any of the pro-Israel Jewish organizations for this outrageous decision. This is just another example of how timid and ineffective America’s pro-Israel lobbying groups are.

Rep. Engel bows to Arab lobbyists, pro-Israel friends are silent

Eliot Engel (D-NY) watered down an anti-Hamas bill that could have impacted the terror organization. Jewish organizations let it happen without a protest.

By Israel National News, October 3, 2019:

An anti-Hamas bill has been severely watered down by Congressman Eliot Engel. It’s a turn of events that should trouble every supporter of Israel.

The New York Post claimed this week that Engel (D-NY), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, agreed to change the bill after heavy pressure from Qatar and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

The Post quoted “a personal acquaintance of Engel’s” as saying, “Eliot told me directly that he was getting a lot of pressure from the Qataris” about the bill. At the same time, Engel or his representatives held seven meetings this past spring with lobbyists for the PA, apparently to discuss the bill.

The Qataris didn’t like the fact that the bill mentioned Qatar’s massive financial support for Hamas. The PA didn’t like the fact that it would have penalized regimes—like the PA—that assist Hamas in various ways. 

So the bill, which was authored by Rep. Brian Mast (R-Florida), was changed. The language about Qatar was removed, and loopholes were added so that aid to Hamas which is considered “humanitarian” would not be blocked. 

We put “humanitarian” in quotation marks because we all remember how “humanitarian” concrete, which supposedly would be used to build homes, instead was used to build tunnels to kidnap and murder Israelis.

At this point in the story, you would imagine that those Jewish leaders who claim to be Engel’s buddies would have intervened to restore the original language of the Mast bill.
