UNRWA warns of cuts to Gaza, PA programs
Mon Jul 9, 2018 10:40am

UNRWA, it should be noted, applies ONLY to Palestinians. ALL other refugee problems are handled by the UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR). The special deal for the Palestinians is coming to an end. UNRWA will be abolished. It is about time. UNHCR does NOT consider anyone a refugee other than first generation. UNRWA considers refugee status hereditary for an unlimited number of generations. Why? Because UNRWA supports the enemies of JEWS. Palestinians do not deserve special status. Let them be handled by UNHCR like all others.

By the way, UNHCR has a good record at settling refugees. UNRWA has never settled even ONE refugee.


UN agency for descendants of Arab refugees to cut back on operations in wake of $217 million budget shortfall.

The UN agency for the descendants of Palestinian Arab refugees has warned that cuts to key program in the Gaza Strip and Judea and Samaria are planned over the coming weeks if a US funding freeze cannot be overcome.

Figures were not yet available on the cuts being planned if the major gap in financing is not resolved, but a letter sent to agency staff at the weekend and seen by AFP on Monday highlights areas targeted.

A source familiar with the plans described the areas expected to be affected in further detail, saying they included employment programs, housing assistance and mental health support, among others.

Most of the cuts were expected in Judea and Samaria in areas governed by the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas. Some program were due to run out of funds by the end of July, according to the source.

The letter said the agency, known as UNRWA, would work to maintain vital food assistance programs, particularly for the impoverished Gaza Strip.

But the source said those too could face reductions in the coming months if additional financing was not found.
