How Trump Started a Civil War Between the UN and Hamas


The UNRWA’s abbreviation leaves out its full title, United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, and its heavy focus on Gaza. The UNRWA classifies 1.4 million or 73% of the people living in Gaza as “refugees” even though it’s an independent territory run by Hamas.

There are really two UNRWA agencies. One is a UN agency run by a small number of international staffers. Another is an arm of Hamas which employs thousands of “Palestinians”. Many if not most of these are members of Hamas. Some, like Suhail al-Hindi, the former head of the UNRWA union, who was also a member of Hamas’ leadership, serve in the upper echelons of the terror group.

While a handful of European UN employees act as the public face of UNRWA, the actual agency is run by Hamas operatives who control its schools, using them to recruit and to store weapons. The union representing UNRWA employees is controlled by Hamas and its employees implement Hamas policies.

Hamas had announced as much when its newspaper responded to a call to fire UNRWA Hamas members by writing, “Laying off the agency employees because of their political affiliation means laying off all the employees of the aid agency, because…they are all members of the ‘resistance.’”

The power struggle between the UN employees and Hamas was tested before during clashes over the teaching of the Holocaust in UNRWA schools and the use of UNRWA schools to launch attacks on Israel.

The real crackup came when the Trump administration cut off all funding to UNRWA.

On a Rosh Hashana call, President Trump told Jewish leaders that the free ride for terrorists was over.

“I stopped massive amounts of money that we were paying to the Palestinians,” he announced. “The United States was paying them tremendous amounts of money.” more here

  1. …Good, this needed done, and only defunds terrorists.

    Now, if you could only defund Democrats the same way, then the TRUE enemies of humanity would eat themselves, and none of these evil organizations they so carefully cultivated around the world could exist in the FIRST place…

  2. We should have never been giving them money in the first place.

    As the Birchers used to say “Get US out of the UN”.

  3. …we need to keep a UN presence just to use our veto power to screw with them. Simply make it a perk for Trump campaign voulenteers to go there on a rotating weekly basis with instructions to vote NO on everything that comes up.

    …never let them have their way…

  4. Taxpayer money wasted on these faux humanitarian orgs, set on autopilot, and not one damn President preceding Trump said nary a word.

    Taxation without representation. I say cease all funding to every NGO, foreign country and global org. Since the Marshall Plan, we’ve been programmed to accept its our responsibility to take care of the entire world.

  5. One must wonder why a supposedly moslem organization (which would avoid all pork) would call itself “HAM ASS?”

    Curious, is it not?

    Just sayin’.

    “Name one good thing the UN does. Just one.”

    …well, they DO wear toilet-bowl blue helmets that are HIGHLY visible on the battlefield, which should show up BEAUTIFULLY in any aiming reticle when they try to deploy them against US…

  7. Defunded this arm of Hamas. Defunded Planned Parenthood.
    Threatened colleges with defunding for free speech violations…Just for those things alone Trump earned
    another four years.

    There was a President who battled the UNIPARTY to get us out of the UN! Same guy fighting UNIPARTY on “birthright” citizens! Ronny. The Rove leftist joined the Dems (aka BIPARTISIAN) to defeat the Bible thumper. but he did try; failed badly, but tried. Never underestimate the power of Karl and the UNIPARTY!
