Members of Congress and foreign policy experts alike have urged a defunding of UNRWA.
The lack of transparency, having members of terrorist organizations on its payroll, are a couple of the legitimate reasons for defunding of UNRWA.
Not to mention its leaders often serve as propaganda appologists for the Islamists. I speak here of of Mr. John Ging, a first-class international dhimmi dimwit.
So what does the Obama Administration do?
It orders the U.S. State Dept. to increase aid by $20 million to the Hamas terrorist population in Gaza. The money will go through UNRWA.
Which of course means Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the other terrorist factions in Gaza will benefit from the U.S. taxpayer.
Repugnant. Absolutely repugnant.
"As we look for ways to crack down on terrorism and terrorist activity, looking at UNRWA is a good start. American taxpayer dollars fund approximately one-third of UNRWA's operating budget. UNRWA provides food, medicine, economic aid, jobs, radical education, political opportunities, and even logistical assistance to Hamas and other extremist groups. UNRWA's budget, which exceeds $365 million, is funded by many nations, but the United States and other Western nations are the largest contributors."
Israel's fight with Hamas in Gaza is just one geographical theater in the overall global Islamist jihad against the West.
It is a crucial front in the so-called "war on terror."
Obama has shown a fondness for Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln was a war time president. On one occasion he asked General Grant when he expected Lee and his soldiers to be starved out of the trenches around Petersburg, Va.
"Never. So long as our army continues to supply their army with beefstake."
That in reference to a successful Confederate raid on a herd of yankee cattle behind Union lines.
When will Hamas and the other terrorists in Gaza and the Arab populated areas of Judea and Samaria be defeated, disarmed, and dismantled?
Never. So long as the U.S. and other nations continue to pump $ millions in aid to an Islamist society that supports the jihad against the West.
Money and other aid will never win any hearts and minds in the Muslim world. Instead, those things will be used against us.
Islamists need to be defeated, not appeased.
UNRWA must be dismantled:
