Where does the money for the ongoing decades-long UNRWA fiasco come from?

...We think the video clip we showcased in another post of ours just a few days ago gives a good sense of what UNRWA donors are getting for their donations - in business terms, their return on investment, or ROI. Though the video runs for less than ten minutes, it turns the turgid prose - and figures - above into very uncomfortable realities. It also puts faces and voices to the hundreds of thousands of child-victims of the appalling UNRWA, a self-praised United Nations agency with a track-record of destroying lives, as we explained just last week here: "...Barbarism, bigotry and blood-lust: What a UN-provided education delivers". This is a humanitarian disaster that many prominent politicians and diplomats prefer we don't comprehend or see.

UNRWA was created almost seventy years ago and has evolved into the UN's single largest arm, employing more than 30,000 staffers.

Fully 99% of that hugely blown-up total workforce is made up of locally recruited Palestinian Arabs, says Wikipedia. So long as the mind-numbing, ongoing flow of cash and diplomatic coddling keeps on, UNRWA will not slow down - or achieve any of the goals which it was created to pursue.

Its purpose in life, as expressed in UN Resolution A/RES/302 (IV) from December 8, 1949, is

relief of the Palestine refugees... to prevent conditions of starvation and distress among them and to further conditions of peace and stability, and that constructive measures should be undertaken at an early date with a view to the termination of international assistance for relief...

But in reality, those goals were abandoned decades ago. Temporary fixes are often the most permanent of structures.

People new to the amazing Palestinian Arab refugee tale might find it hard to believe what a person needs to do in order to qualify as a Palestinian Arab refugee:

  1. Note that the UN text says 'Palestine refugees' not 'Palestinian refugees'.

    It was so worded to mean all refugees from or to Palestine irrespective of ethnicity or religion.

    Under this provision, the Jewish refugees from Arab / Muslim countries TO 'Palestine', later recognised as sovereign Israel, are also entitled to assistance.
