Trump Administration wants to end special UN agency just for Palestinian so-called “refugees”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 8, 2018

“It is important to have an honest and sincere effort to disrupt UNRWA”

(Jared Kushner)

 

And, doing so would save the US a whole heck of a lot of money! (See chart below)

Kushner and Haley

Jared Kushner and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley have a tough job ahead! It is worth the fight!

I’ve written about the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) over the years. It was specially set up in 1949 to care for the Palestinians displaced from what became the state of Israel.

However, unlike every other refugee situation under the UN umbrella, these ‘refugees’ are never permanently resettled and serve only one purpose—they perpetuate the Middle East hatred of Israel.

If they were legitimate refugees they should have long ago been taken care of by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

In fact, as you read this, the key thing you need to remember is that NO Muslim country wants to permanently resettle Palestinians and the UN never pressures those countries to take in their co-religionists as permanent citizens.

The other Muslim countries are perfectly happy to let the angry Palestinians create generation after generation of so-called ‘refugees’ on Israel’s border.

Here is just one of many stories about this administration’s push to abolish UNRWA.

Kushner Calls for Quashing UNRWA, Resettling Palestinian Refugees

(Don’t panic, they aren’t talking about resettling them here.  We take very few Palestinians as refugees to the US.)

Jared Kushner, Mideast adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, called for a “sincere effort to disrupt” the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees and look to resettle them in current host countries, internal emails obtained by Foreign Policy Magazine show.

“It is important to have an honest and sincere effort to disrupt UNRWA,” Kushner reportedly wrote in emails in January, according to the Aug. 3 report. The emails were addressed to a number of senior government officials, including Trump’s Middle East peace envoy, Jason Greenblatt. “This [agency] perpetuates a status quo, is corrupt, inefficient and doesn’t help peace,” he reportedly wrote.

Kushner has been tasked with brokering a peace deal to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. FP reported that both American and Palestinian officials have painted the push to undercut UNRWA as part of a Trump administration effort to strip Palestinian refugees of their status. The move could tip the balance of peace talks in Israel’s favor by removing the issue of Palestinians’ “right of return,” which Israel has rejected.

Of course Israel rejects the “right of return”, they would have no country as the masses of Palestinians would take it over completely. And, besides, are we going to demand a right of return for all Jews and Christians driven out of most of the Middle East and North Africa?

The Palestinian refugee population stands at around 5 million, with nearly one-third living in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, and Gaza. Over 174,000 Palestinian refugees currently live in Lebanon in 12 camps and gatherings.

[….]

While the U.S. was a key supporter of UNRWA since its establishment in 1949, the Trump administration took a drastic measure in January to cut funding to the agency.

The United States announced that it would contribute just $60 million in 2018, down from about $360 million last year.

More here.

I hope Trump succeeds in killing UNRWA!

Notice that only one rich Muslim country gives any significant amount of money to maintain the Palestinians as refugees.

Perhaps as we write this, the Trump Administration is lobbying other western countries to pull their funding too!

  1. I remember when these Palestinians were mostly Christian . They seem to have grown exponentially in number over the decades. Israel was built on land that was purchased from Arabs,fair and square. It was once a backwards swamp but has been transformed into a modern democratic nation. It even has a wildlife refuge! Israel is so small on the map ,yet how those surrounding Muslim populations, with their masses of land, envy the Jews for it .

  2. Why should we give them a cent? we have a huge national debt that we should be paying off, not forking out taxpayer money to fix Israel’s mess. What do we get out of this, anyway?

    Let’s see, should we cut a 69 year old program that hasn’t worked yet and that we currently pay $$$370 MILLION$$$ a year for?

    1/3 of a TRILLION $$$$$ a year on an ineffective 69 year old program? Doesn’t seem like there is any question on what should be done.

    RIP IT OUT BY THE TEETH! FIRE them all! We don’t need no stinkin’ program!

  4. IF our readers wonder why? Why the fight over killing all the Jews and taking over Jerusalem and Israel?
    Here goes – muxxxxd said on his deathbed for his followers to “rid the entire Arabian penisula of all Jews and Christians”.
    And “we will come after the Saturday worshippers then we will come after the Sunday worshippers.”
    Then why all the terror?
    Muxxxxd said for his followers to “Spread terror among the non-believers until they say there is. I god but Allah and Mxxxxxxxd is his messenger.”
    When you understand Muxxxxxd then you see the murserous rage ordered by Muhammed to kill Jews and Christians.
    Simple realty.
    A tragedy.
    Vote wisely in November.
