GOP presidential hopeful Rand Paul’s proposal to slash US funds to the Palestinian Authority was voted down by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday, according to the online news magazine Politico.

The libertarian senator’s gambit is an apparent effort to curry favor with sections of the Republican base who are wary that he is not sufficiently pro-Israel.

The measure would have conditioned future aid to the Palestinians on their recognition of Israel as a Jewish state and a renunciation of violence.
