The UNRWA Dilemma

If the entire Palestinian Authority leadership lives off an international
welfare check that arrives only because the conflict still exists, there isn't

Jerusalem Institute of Justice, have received per capita, adjusted for
inflation, 25 times more aid than did Europeans to rebuild war-torn Western
Europe under the Marshall plan after the Second World War.
Most of these funds, according to the study, reached the Palestinian people
through The United Nations Relief and Work Agency for Palestine Refugees in
the Near East (UNRWA).
UNRWA is the only UN refugee agency dedicated to a single group of people,
and the only agency that designates individuals as original refugees if they
have lived in areas effected by the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, for a minimum of
only two years, before being displaced. UNRWA is also the only UN agency
that designates the descendants of the original refugees as refugees as well
– even though 90% of UNRWA-designated refugees have never actually
been displaced. [Continued]
