UN envoy demands Trump resume funding to UNRWA
Arutz Sheva ^ | 25/7/18 | Ben Ariel

The UN special envoy to the Middle East Nickolay Mladenov on Tuesday urged U.S. President Donald Trump to resume funding he had cut to the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN agency which assists “Palestinian refugees”.

Addressing a UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East and quoted by Haaretz, Mladenov said that "UNRWA’s financial crisis remains a very serious concern. At present, UNRWA needs some $217 million to sustain its work in 2018. I urge the swift mobilization of support to enable the continuity of assistance and a maintenance of stability on the ground in the region."

"UNRWA has communicated to staff that every effort will be made to mitigate the impact on the most vulnerable refugees of reductions in emergency assistance. Of particular concern, is the possibility of a delay to the start of the school year for some 526,000 students in UNRWA schools throughout its areas of operation," added Mladenov.

The U.S. announced in January it would cut some of its funding to UNRWA, citing a need to undertake a fundamental re-examination of the organization, both in the way it operates and the way it is funded.

The organization later received pledges of $100 million in additional funding from Qatar, Canada, Switzerland, Turkey, New Zealand, Norway, Korea, Mexico, Slovakia, India and France as a means of making up for the aid that was cut by Washington.

UNRWA said last month that it had managed to pay salaries and provide some services, but also said there was still a large budget deficit of $256 million.

UNRWA is notorious for its anti-Israel activities. During the 2014 counterterrorism Operation Protective Edge, Hamas rockets were discovered inside a school building run by UNRWA.

Is he "urging" or "demanding"? Either way, the answer is the same. "Fool me once, shame on you." Brazenly "urge" or "demand" without even pretending to deceive, go to hell.

UN envoy demands Trump resume funding to UNRWA

Dear UNRWA

The U.S will no longer support any UN organization or NGO anywhere which directly or indirectly funds or financially supports any Palestinian terrorist group.

ESAD!
Love and kisses.

I wish we’d cut off all UN or NGO funding.

Did they take down the museum with an American flag and an Iraeli flag you step on at the threshold, and a rock saying “A Jooo! is hiding behind me, come and kill him,” that they set up in honor of 9/11? How about doing that before they “demand” anything.

NO!!! President Trump screw them. They have been screwing, lying and exploiting all of us for many many years. They assist PLO/HAMAS terror, they facilitate terror, they support terror and they need our funds to continue to do so.

SCREW THOSE MFs!

Trump said the US will no longer be the world’s piggy bank.
They just need a little more time to let the new reality sink in.
Trump is the strong Father to the world. He has put down his foot and said No More. The world is in tantrum meltdown mode. Ain’t gonna work.

All Trump’s efforts will be reversed in 2024, if we can’t get a conservative congress to write some of his acts into law. The next Rino or liberal president will undo everything he’s done.

True that. We’ll have to work really hard for the midterms and 2020/2024 elections.

I don't see China or Germany listed there. Did they contribute?
