From TOI:

The Trump Administration will announce in the next few days that it rejects the long-standing Palestinian demand for a “right of return” for million of refugees and their descendants to Israel, an Israeli television report said Saturday night. The US will announce a policy that, “from its point of view, essentially cancels the ‘right of return,'” the report said.
The US — which on Friday announced that it had decided to cut more than $200 million in aid to the Palestinians — and has also cut back its funding for UNRWA — will also ask Israel to “reconsider” the mandate that Israel gives to UNRWA to operate in the West Bank. The goal of such a change, the TV report said, would be to prevent Arab nations from legitimately channeling aid to UNRWA in the West Bank.
I was not aware of any mandate Israel gives to UNRWA in the West Bank, besides allowing officials to travel through Tel Aviv and similar services given to any NGO.

I also didn't think that it was possible for Arab nations to give money to UNRWA in the West Bank directly.

While I believe that UNRWA has no reason to exist in the West Bank, this story needs to be explained a bit better.

This story highlights a basic truth, though.

Any move to defund UNRWA in the West Bank would include lots more money for the Palestinian Authority to expand the services it already does for the "other" kind of Palestinian, and to do it more efficiently - more schools, more hospitals, more medical clinics. The PA would gain hundreds of millions of dollars to help its own citizens.

Yet is would prefer that this money go to UNRWA.

Have you ever heard of a government that had the opportunity to enrich its coffers and prefer the money go to an NGO instead?

This is all the proof you needs that the Palestinian leadership isn't interested in building a state, but in using the false "refugee issue" to eventually destroy Israel - no difference than how they acted when UNRWA was created in 1950.

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.
