Why are we paying for hatred in the Middle East?

(Wednesday blog)

A couple of months ago, President Trump cut all US aid to the Palestinian authorities through UNRWA. The US State Department described the organisation, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), as “irredeemably flawed”.

The US administration has “carefully reviewed” the issue and “will not make additional contributions to UNRWA,” spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

Previously the US had been the most generous donor:

Of course, we had the usual outrage and fury from our Palestinian friends. A spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas later said the move was an “assault” against his people.

And, of course, those who were living well off Western cash protested and claimed they were doing wonderful work towards eternal peace and happiness. A UNRWA spokesman bleated: “These very programs have a proven track record in creating one of the most successful human development processes and results in the Middle East. The international state community, our donors and host countries have consistently praised UNRWA for its achievements and standards“.

Anyway, now the US has sensibly pulled out, we in Britain will be the third largest individual country donor to our wonderful, tolerant, peace-loving Palestinian chums.

And here is a short video showing how our money is used by the Palestinian authorities to foment hatred, violence, war and the extermination of all Jews. Aren’t you glad your taxes are paying for this?

    While not being relevant to the point being made in the article today, that picture has been used for propaganda purposes before by ‘other’ than the Palestinians. It is not of the liberated Buchenwald concentration camp, but the result of a Bomber Command raid on the
    Nordhausen aircraft factory in 1945. As many of the workers were slave labour from the nearby concentration camp, so the dead displayed were obviously still dressed in concentration camp clothes.

    As the America 3rd army entered the town 6 days later, one wonders at the point at that stage in the war of killing thousands of people and presenting the American forces a pile of rubble and heaps of corpses to liberate.

    “On April 3 and 4, 1945 three-quarters of Nordhausen was destroyed by bombing raids of the Royal Air Force, resulting in the deaths of around 8,800 people, including 1,300-1,500 sick prisoners at the Boelcke Kaserne barracks within Nordhausen.”
