    Will the World Finally Turn Off the UNRWA Spigot?

    Good article. Highlights:

    - UNRWA’s 30,000 employees are mostly Palestinians, and many are Hamas members.
    UNWRA has said it does not and will not discriminate against them.

    - UNRWA has not settled a single refugee -- but is designed to keep Palestinians stateless and dependent on charity.

    - By supporting UNRWA, the international community keeps the conflict alive.

    - The US is UNRWA’s largest donor. Last year, it supplied $360 million of UNRWA’s $1.2 billion yearly budget.

    Switzerland is reconsidering the role of UNRWA as well.
    Basically looks like it turned into a whole industry, its' main resource to generate money is keeping people in camps and prolonging the conflict.

    Exactly as for Hamas, no conflict - means an end to a whole web of NGO's, aid organizations and jobs.

    How would one even define a "camp" in a semi-autonomous region such as Gaza under Hamas or Area A under PA government? Why are they still called "camps" and why are the residents still called "refugees". They are settled in their country of origin under a self-determining government elected by them. I assume they have full nationality and citizenship. They have rights identical to those who do not live in "camps". So there is no reason to define them differently than all the other nationals or citizens of their respective regions.

    Note: Its different in Lebanon or Jordan where they are actively prevented from normal nationality and citizenship. That's a whole different conversation.

    UNWRA is an aid agency. It has no authority to settle refugees.

    UNRWA has actually morphed into a bloated endowment for islamic terrorists.

    One does not allow wannabe murderers to come into one's country when one knows what their intention is, and always has been.

    Bomb them. Make them want to live in their "almost" country of Gaza. All they have to do is get rid of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

    Israel is not the Arab's country, never has been.
    They gave it up when they tried to kill all the Jews in it.

    They made their choice, now they are tasting the consequences of wanting to commit genocide on the Jewish indigenous people of the land.
