Never mind UNRWA — end US funding for the pro-terror United Nations itself

POLITICS: Never mind UNRWA — end US funding for the pro-terror United Nations itself

It’s time — beyond time — to rethink US funding for the United Nations.

After all, America has laws against financing terrorist groups, and the United Nations does just that:

  • Its secretary-general supports Hamas, demanding an end to attacks on the terror group, whose Oct. 7 massacre he tried to justify.
  • Its “court of justice” claims Israel is a possible perpetrator of genocide.
  • It’s aided and abetted mass murderers, demonized an innocent democracy (Israel) and perpetuated Mideast venom.

And, no, it’s not just the 13 UN Relief and Works “staffers” who took part in the Oct. 7 massacre, including at least nine actual Hamas terrorists.

As UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer notes, UNRWA’s ostensible mission — to provide social services for “refugees” of the Arabs’ 1948 war against Israel — is a “front.”

After all, most actual refugees are handled by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

UNRWA’s main purpose is to perpetuate the notion that the descendants of Palestinians who left Israel 75 years ago are themselves refugees today, and that through violence and “martyrdom,” they’ll one day return and make the land Jew-free.

Its staff teach children to strive for this and never give up.

They spread lies about Israel, redirect international aid and resources to Hamas and welcome terrorists to use their schools and homes as bases, including storing weapons and holding hostages.

The United Nations can plead ignorance; Secretary-General António Guterres claims he was “horrified” — “horrified” — to learn about the 13 UNRWA workers.

In fact, over a thousand of these UN employees have documented terror ties.

Groups like UN Watch (and The Post) have long sounded the alarm about UNRWA.

And though Guterres backs an inquiry into UNRWA’s Dirty Baker’s Dozen, he’s calling on nations to keep funding the pro-terror group to serve “the dire needs of the desperate populations.”

Sorry: No way UNRWA can be trusted with that work, nor any organization associated with the anti-Israel, antisemitic, terror-supporting United Nations, which has essentially sided with the terrorists.

But President Biden routinely bows to UN-think: White House National Security spokesman John Kirby on Monday echoed Guterres on UNRWA: “Let’s not impugn the good work of a whole agency because of the potential bad actions here by a small number.”

Sorry, but, again, it’s not just 13 — it’s the whole agency.

And the UN itself.

Just last November, after the Oct. 7 massacred (that Iran was behind), the UN Human Rights Council named, yep, Iran, as chairman of its Social Forum.

This body is not a force for good in the world. Not by a long shot.

Without wholesale reform, and Gutteres gone, it doesn’t deserve another nickel of US taxpayer money.
