Another inane tweet from UNRWA's Chris Gunness:

UNRWA slightly modifies its benefits program to no longer pay 100% of medical services to everyone who claims to be a "Palestine refugee" forever. They threaten violence. And UNRWA uses this an an opportunity to threaten the rest of the world by saying that if UNRWA isn't fully funded to give everything these fake refugees demand, the entire region is in danger.

In the article he is tweeting, the group that is threatening UNRWA is - Hamas!

Palestinians are considering civil disobedience if the United Nations Relief and Works Agency doesn’t back down on cuts to healthcare subsidies, Hamas Movement representative in Lebanon Ali Barakeh told The Daily Star. Barakeh also announced in an interview that Moussa Abu Marzouk, the deputy of Hamas’ political bureauwill visit Lebanon in early February to meet Lebanese officials.

“There will be a main protest Friday [that aims] to send a strong message to the international community that we will not [relent] until UNRWA goes back on its unjust decision, raises its hospitalization budget and allows Palestinian patients to receive treatment without restrictions or conditions,” Barakeh said.
A lot of the protests are being driven by lies:
Medicinal costs are unchanged — Aziz will still receive her prescriptions free of charge. But she doesn’t know that, thanks to an orchestrated campaign of misinformation by popular Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas, to drum up political support.

Zizette Darkazally, senior communications adviser and public information officer for UNRWA’s Lebanon branch, said in an interview with IBT: “[Palestinian] groups portrayed [the healthcare changes] in a bigger context … using inflammatory words like intifada [the Arabic word for uprising] and telling people, ‘UNRWA is going to disappear.’”
UNRWA's Darkazally is doing her job in trying to get the truth out - UNRWA only slightly limited benefits and it cannot afford to keep the gravy train running forever. And that is what she is telling the media.

Gunness, on the other hand, instead of defending UNRWA, is defending Hamas! He is using these threats by terror groups as a reason to shake down the world for more money.

It doesn't take a math genius to realize that as long as UNRWA maintains its absurd definition of "refugee" to include every descendant of anyone who claimed that they lived in British Mandate Palestine between 1946 and 1948, the funding problems are only going to get worse. Yet UNRWA has not attempted to reduce the number of "refugees" on its rolls since around 1951 - and even then it admitted that many of "refugees"  really weren't, and were soaking UNRWA to get free food and medical care.

Instead of coming up with a plan to integrate "Palestinians" into the countries that they've lived in from birth, UNRWA ignores the issue and threatens the world with the specter of Palestinian terrorism if the crybabies don't get what they want.

Lebanon can treat their fellow Arabs like criminals, forcing them to live in the overcrowded camps and not letting them work at many jobs, and UNRWA doesn't say a word.

Because UNRWA doesn't care about Palestinians' long term prospects. They just want to use them to keep the international funding going for as long as possible.

The Arab nations have already woken up to this. The rest of the world will soon get sick of this welfare culture as well.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
