Canada's Back - funding corrupt UN agencies

Recommended Posts

To their credit the Harper tories cut funding to the UN relief and works agency for Palestine. I've read a lot of unsavoury things about this agency over the years, including that it's mainly staffed by Palestinians who overtly hate both Israel and Jews and make little effort at hiding it. I've also heard that for a supposedly neutral group its very close to terrorist groups and does not work with the Israeli government at all. There have been reports of them smuggling weapons across the border and moving them around in UN ambulances and trucks.

That Canada immediately rejoined the UNRWA as soon as Trudeau was prime minister, with no preconditions is an excellent example of their 'style over substance behaviour, both on the domestic front and internationally. We've forked over $100 million to this corrupt agency since Trudeau took over, with no idea how or where it's being spent, or whose pockets it's going into.

In theory, UNRWA exists to provide support to Palestinian refugees: food, shelter, education, health care. The organization has become a highly politicized vehicle that promotes the dream nurtured among Palestinians to destroy Israel and return to their ancestral homes.

Israel, and many observers around the world, see UNRWA instead a self-sustaining bureaucratic fiefdom, serving the whims of its executives first, at best, and outright hostile to Israel (and sympathetic to its terrorist attackers) at worst.

If the news media in this country had even the tiniest bit of integrity, they would blast the Trudeau government hard on this one.   My guess: you will only read about it here (or maybe in Yurp)
