ZOA still wants to hold PA funding

The Zionist Organization of America did not get the memo:

ZOA says Abbas is not a moderate, and wants his Fatah Party to reform its charter to remove what ZOA says are articles calling for Israel's destruction. The Palestine Liberation Organization, where Fatah predominates, has already had such articles removed from its charter.

Earlier this week, a pro-Israel dovish group, Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, lobbied lawmakers to fund Abbas' Palestinian Authority.
But the "doves" did. And do check out the ZOA press release with the quotes from American lawmakers attacking Fatah, calling for the US embassy to be moved to Jerusalem, calls for "repudiating the 'right of return'" etc.
