If Donald Trump dumped UNRWA it would be a miracle

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 … Continue reading If Donald Trump dumped UNRWA it would be a miracle

Palestinian human rights activist says UNRWA is using Palestinians as pawns

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 … Continue reading Palestinian human rights activist says UNRWA is using Palestinians as pawns

UNRWA: Maybe the worst organization in the world

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 … Continue reading UNRWA: Maybe the worst organization in the world

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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