Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 14, 2018

While we're glad to discover that other nations are capable of generosity to UNRWA, what has never been clear to us is why the agency exists. The U.N. agency responsible for refugees is the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, but Palestinian refugees from Israel's 1948 War of Independence have their own. Since almost the moment the UNRWA was created in 1949, the agency has effectively worsened the plight of Palestinian refugees by labeling them -- and their descendents -- as refugees in perpetuity. Refugee status, as Israeli politician Einat Wilf puts it, is for Palestinians a "hereditary trait."

The United States will now voluntarily contribute to the agency only $60 million rather than the expected contribution of $360 million, with all subsequent funding subject to further consideration.

360 million???? For WHAT???

I dont understand why we are funding them 60 million!!! Why would we fund people who are anti-U.S.?

Finally, someone came to their senses...
