If Donald Trump dumped UNRWA it would be a miracle

Posted on December 29, 2017

Update January 6, 2018: Many good points in this op-ed at The Hill about getting rid of UNRWA. Many of you may not know that the United Nations treats Arabs (so-called Palestinians), who lost the 1948 war with Israel, as a very special class of ‘refugee’ with their own very special UN agency called the United […]

Palestinian human rights activist says UNRWA is using Palestinians as pawns

Posted on December 4, 2014

He wants the UNHCR to come up with a plan to permanently resettle the Palestinians and forget the “right of return.” Unbelievable that a Palestinian would have the guts to say that the special UN agency (UN Relief and Works Agency) set up more than sixty years ago to supposedly care for Palestinian refugees, is […]

Palestinian workers protesting UNRWA, want more of your money!

Posted on January 15, 2014

Demonstrations broke out in the West Bank on Sunday where Palestinian employees of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) are striking for higher pay. Before you read on, check out Judy’s post on UNRWA here just a few days ago. Then keep in mind that the US is paying approximately 25% of UNRWA’s annual […]

UNRWA: Maybe the worst organization in the world

Posted on December 22, 2013

In case you doubt that Israel is singled out by the United Nations, read this paragraph from Jordan Schachtel at American Thinker: Since World War II, over 50 million people worldwide have been displaced as a result of armed conflict, yet the only group of refugees anointed by the United Nations for specific attention is the one […]

Palestinians blame their own leadership and UNRWA for the suffering of Syrian Palestinians, not Israel this time

Posted on October 29, 2013

We learned recently that many Palestinians fleeing Syria died attempting to reach Europe via the Mediterranean.  So this first article from last week was interesting as Palestinians blamed their own factional leadership for their seeming lack of concern for the average Palestinian.   One has to read through 16 paragraphs before the word ‘Israel’ (the usual […]

Posted on January 16, 2010

David Bedein reports in the Philadelphia Bulletin: Jerusalem — A senior Canadian government official has briefed officials in Israel and the Palestinian Authority with the news of Canada’s decision to defund the United Nations Refugee Works Agency (UNRWA) which administers 59 refugee camps for Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendents who left their homes in the […]

Attempt to block UNRWA’s terror ties stalled in Congress since January

Posted on October 17, 2009

FrontPage Magazine published an interview yesterday with  Asaf Romirowsky, a Middle East analyst and Adjunct Scholar at the Middle East Forum, who brings our attention to a bill in Congress dealing with UNRWA. That’s the UN agency in charge of the Palestinian refugees; we’ve written about it extensively. Briefly, we give it a lot of money, much of which […]

No hope for Palestinian “refugees” as long as UNRWA is in charge

Posted on May 6, 2009

Dissolve the UNRWA is the title of an article on FrontPage Magazine today by Joseph Puder.  UNRWA stands for United Nations Relief and Works Agency, and its sole responsibility is the Palestinian “refugees.” There are many reasons to put “refugees” in quotation marks; one is that alone among all agencies, UNRWA counts as refugees all descendants of those […]

Jihad Watch posts informative film on UNRWA

Posted on February 9, 2009

Check out the short film on the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) at Jihad Watch here.    UNRWA is the special (highly controversial!)agency set up to specifically take care of the Palestinian multi-generation so-called ‘refugees.’ For more information, go back to Judy’s post here and follow links back to our extensive coverage. By the way, […]

UNRWA: tied to terrorism, and counting citizens of Jordan as refugees

Posted on February 1, 2009

The former chief attorney for UNRWA has issued a report full of facts the “international community” needs to face up to.  The Jerusalem Post’s Tovah Lazaroff reports here. The main point is the agency’s terrorism links,  but there’s another important point within the article that I didn’t know, which I will go into later in this post. The article […]
