|Jihad Watch : “UK says funding cut to UNRWA could lead to instability,” Middle East Eye, January 26, 2018:
So goes the standard argument for not cutting funding to UNRWA: it
would “undermine stability,” UNRWA has a “unique and important mandate,”
and provides “vital services.” What is the case for cutting that
UNRWA — the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine
Refugees In the Near East — purports to be a non-political samaritan
organization, distributing aid to “Palestinian refugees” all over the
Middle East. Nine of the top ten donors to UNRWA are North American and
European; only one is Arab — Saudi Arabia, which provides less than 5%
of UNRWA’s budget. Apparently Arabs and Muslims are content to let the
West do all the heavy lifting.
Of the tens of millions of refugees that have been created since
World War II, there is only one group of refugees — the “Palestinians” —
for whom that refugee status is inheritable. That is, the child or
grandchild of a “refugee” is also declared to be a “refugee,” and as the
status is handed down, the number of “refugees” on UNRWA’s rolls keeps
increasing. There are now over five million such “refugees” in Jordan,
Lebanon, Syria, Gaza, the West Bank, and other Arab countries.
mostly kept in camps by the host countries, and with the exception of
Jordan, denied even the right to citizenship. The Arab states, with
UNRWA as their handmaiden, don’t want to allow these “refugees” to be
integrated; they want them to remain as geopolitical pawns, tugging at
the heartstrings of the U.N. and the sentimental and gullible West, as
they wait — how long, O Lord, how long — to “return” to their “homeland”
