Bibi Wants UNRWA to ‘Disappear’ after Trump’s Funding Cut Threat
Local Editor

Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants a UN agency serving Palestinian refugees to "disappear" because he believes their descendants are a threat to the Zionist entity's existence.

In this respect, Netanyahu backed US President Donald Trump's threat to halt payments to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East [UNRWA].

"I fully agree with President Trump's strong criticism of UNRWA," Netanyahu said at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting.

"I made a simple suggestion that the funds for UNRWA should be gradually transferred to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, with clear criteria for supporting real refugees, rather than fictitious refugees, which is what is happening today under UNRWA," he further claimed.

UNRWA's humanitarian relief provides education, health care, and social services to the five million Palestinians in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East al-Quds.

For his part, UNRWA's spokesman dismissed Netanyahu's allegations, saying it's the conflicting sides that are causing the problem of refugees, not his agency.

UNRWA is entirely dependent on voluntary contributions from UN member states, and in 2016, the US funded almost 30 percent of UNRWA's budget, by providing over $368 million. The total amount it has received from the US since 1994 has run up to $5 billion.
