PalArabs again protesting those who help them

From Ma'an:
Popular committees in West Bank refugee camps will close down the offices of UNRWA, the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees, in protest of alleged reductions in aid.

Ibrahim Saqr, the director of Nablus refugee camps’ committees, said that that the decision to strike came after the UN once again rejected the committees’ demands.

He also said that the shutdown was a “first step” in a program of protest. On Thursday the committees will shut down the offices of UNRWA’s regional directors as well as warehouses.
Yes, yet again, the Palestinian Arabs addicted to handouts are protesting that the free food and medical services and schooling that they receive isn't enough for them - so they will shut down the aid to "protest."

This isn't the first time this has happened. A similar action occurred last August, and last April the protests turned so violent that the UNRWA workers were forced to go on strike to protest their very safety as they attempt to provide services for the people that were threatening them! Not surprisingly, the UNRWA hushed up that incident.

This is what happens when entire generations of people are brought up with two basic ideas:

1. They are entitled to everything they demand, forever, without having to work for it.
2. Violence is the most effective way to get things done.
