  (Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, if we didn't already have enough proof 
that the Palestinian Authority is not an honest partner for peace with 
Israel, Abu Mazen's speech at the U.N. General Assembly today confirmed 
it and showed that he is a self-serving autocrat who is more interested 
in delegitimizing Israel, the Jewish state, than in building up a 
future Palestinian state.
  Abu Mazen's message was clear. He intends to scuttle any prospects 
for peace, pursue Israel at the International Criminal Court, and 
continue his ploy for achieving unilateral statehood at the U.N.
  President Obama must immediately suspend all assistance to the 
Palestinian Authority.
  If the Palestinians do move to join additional international 
conventions and organizations, the U.S. law is unambiguous. We must 
suspend all funding to any of these bodies that accept a nonexistent 
state of Palestine to its membership.
  Mr. Speaker, the President has been seeking ways to circumvent and 
waive these provisions for years, but we must see to it that the 
President implements the full intent and letter of the law. Suspend all 
aid now.
