US ends funding for UN Palestinian refugee agency
« on: September 02, 2018, 09:14:48 pm »

I'm surprised that they were funding a Palestinian refugee agency anyway.  It's hardly consistent with supporting Israel.

RAMALLAH, West Bank   The U.S. decision to end its decades of funding for the U.N. agency that aids Palestinian refugees and their descendants is "an attack on the rights of the Palestinian people," Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's spokesman said Saturday.
Nabil Abu Rudeneh said the move "does not serve peace but rather strengthens terrorism in the region." He said it was just the latest hostile act of the Trump Administration against the Palestinian people, after it recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved its embassy there. He said the Palestinian leadership was considering appealing to the U.N. Security Council to confront the American stance.
