MEF Welcomes Trump’s Potential UNRWA Reforms

PHILADELPHIA – January 31, 2018 – The Middle East Forum welcomes reports that the Trump administration might “refuse to accept UNRWA’s special status for ‘Palestine refugees,'” and suspend all U.S. government funding of the group.


The Forum has long sought the end of U.S. recognition of fake Palestinian refugees who never lived in what is today Israel, removing a source of irredentism and terrorism.


“So long as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency continues to proliferate ‘refugees’ and breed a victim mentality, it encourages conflict,” said Forum director Gregg Roman. “Should these reports be true, it would be a major step toward peace.”


“The American taxpayer is UNRWA’s largest donor, paying $370 million in 2016 alone,” noted Forum president Daniel Pipes. “These funds support violent attacks on Jews, encourage corruption, and delay an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict. The Forum encourages President Trump to take bold leadership and reign in a rogue organization.”


These potential moves are consistent with the Forum’s Israel Victory Project, which calls for delaying diplomacy until the Palestinians give up their effort to eliminate the Jewish state.
