The Trump administration and Israel have threatened to close down a United Nations agency dedicated to helping Palestinian refugees amid rumors that funding to the agency had already been cut.
For example, Breitbart Jerusalem reported last week that the agency was unable to confirm whether its statistic of 500,000 was a true reflection of the number of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon when that country's own bureau of statistics cites 175,000 - almost two thirds less than UNRWA's number. A collapse in UNRWA could also open the way for Hamas terrorists to gain influence in the PA government. "It also perpetuates the narrative of the so-called "right of return" with the aim of eliminating the State of Israel, and therefore UNRWA must disappear". He added that the organization "must disappear" because the Palestinians' right to return to Israel was a stance meant to eliminate the State of Israel.
Observers said UNRWA's support for Palestinian refugees actually helped Israel, by taking responsibility for the health, education and overall well-being of displaced Palestinians and their offspring.
UNRWA is entirely dependent on voluntary contributions from United Nations member states, and in 2016, the USA funded nearly 30 percent of UNRWA's budget, by providing over $368 million.
Walcott could be set for Southampton return
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has insisted he hopes the England global stays put, but Walcott could be on the move this month. He has gone on to make over 400 appearances for the Gunners, racking up more than 100 goals in the process.
"What perpetuates the refugee crisis is the failure of the parties to deal with the issue".
He said that President Mahmoud Abbas will open the meeting with a speech, explaining that invitations have already been sent out to all Palestinian political groups, including Hamas, to attend the meeting, pointing out the possibility that some PCC members in exile will not be allowed by Israel to enter the occupied territories to attend the meeting in Ramallah. The reportsuggested that Netanyahu would prefer that the funding cut be implemented gradually.
"They don't even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel", the U.S. leader added. Nonetheless, White House officials have continued to say they intend to put forward a plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
However, in a tweet last week, the American president said "we have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table", seemingly contradicting his prior remark. "The decisions of when to provide aid in the fiscal year, and in what allocations, lie with the Secretary of State".
