Bucking--not backing - Trump is a sure-fire recipe for committing political suicide
President Trump has created a veritable diplomatic tsunami affecting the political fortunes of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Hamas and Jordan - with his decision to cease all future donations to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) - currently US$360million per annum and comprising about 30% of UNRWAs budget.
The numbers of UNRWA-registered Palestinian Arab refugees in Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza have been increasing in leaps and bounds annually because they include all the descendants of those Palestinian Arabs caught up in the 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israel wars.
Trump should just tell the mullahs that until they integrate to 70 year “refugees” back into their appropriate nation states, they will receive no aid or trade deals. Cut them off!
Supporting our enemies has never been a good idea. Trump is doing something about it. Nice to have a REAL president again.
Agree. I’ve spent the better part of the last three years working aerospace/military projects in the ME and I can tell you that President Trump is doing the right things. He is respected. Not something I can say about the previous administration.
There is no such thing as a Palestinian Arab.
This could have been done years ago but president Trump is the only president to put America’s interests first. All the previous regimes put their own interests or their financial backers interests first. It’s nice to finally see a president who takes care of Americans first.
Donald Trump will loom large in the history books a century for now, either as Adolph II or as GW II, depending on who writes the history. He is turning out to be the most effective President since FDR and maybe since Abe.
What if the Arabs surrender to Israel, will the political wall to exclude them from any governing coalition hold?
A new gender designation.
Until the 1960s, the stand-alone term ‘Palestinian’ meant ‘Jew’. The stand-alone term was used on Jewish identity cards in the British Mandate. The very term ‘Palestinian Arab’ indicates the difference.
The ‘Jerusalem Post’ operated for years as the ‘Palestine Post’, and it wasn’t targeted at Arabs or Muslims.
I saw a video clip of a “Refugee” who has been paid since 1953. They said he now has about 100 descendants. (Who are also paid from that fund.
Not only do we pay for freeloaders here, we pay for those that sneak in Illegally and those that don’t!
Get a yob, ya bum. No, IED building or killing Jews is not considered a job...
I think that President Trump should publicly state that going forward that an money that the UN donates to the Palestinian terrorists by any UN agency will result in America removing 100x of that wasted money from the money it donates to the UN.
To hell with the parasitic, antiamerican UN.
