Welfare for Fake Palestinian ‘Refugees’

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

There are currently five million people living off the UNRWA dole. Sooner or later there will be fifty million. Jordan’s government has done everything possible to inflate the UNRWA welfare rolls and keep cities like Baqa’a and their people on the Western dole. One day the Jordanian government, the British-appointed monarchy ruling over the original Palestinian state, may decide to give up the farce and put all their people on the UNRWA rolls as refugees. And we’ll have to keep on paying without asking any questions– after all, it is in our “national interest.”

When Senators and Deputy Secretaries talk about national interests, what they really mean is the interest of Muslim monarchies in the Gulf, who bring up Israel and the plight of its terrorists every time an American diplomat or general drops by Riyadh, Doha or Kuwait City.

The UNRWA, Baqa’a and the PLO aren’t American interests — they’re a Muslim interest. What Leahy really means is that it’s in America’s national interest to cater to Muslim interests, whose kingdoms, despite their billions in oil wealth and their passionate feelings on the subject, somehow can’t be bothered to cover the cost of feeding, teaching and caring for Baqa’a.

The King of Jordan found 1.5 billion dollars to build the Red Sea Astrarium, a local version of Disneyland, but the Hashemite monarchy, like the House of Saud, the Al-Thanis, the House of Sabah, and every other bunch of burnoosed tyrants with palaces and investments across the world, can’t be asked to care for their own people in their 50-year-old refugee camps, who are kept that way because it’s an easy way to sock the gullible West for another few billion dollars to fund their terrorist training bases.

Even if there were a valid reason for the United States to champion Muslim interests by carving up Israel in order to create yet another Sunni Muslim state, it would not be a national interest, it would be appeasement. Palestine is as much in America’s national interest, as the Sudetenland was in Britain’s national interest.

Is it really in America’s national interest to turn over its foreign policy to the Muslim monarchies who birthed Al-Qaeda and are conducting a covert war against the West? Is it in our interest to keep funding terrorist training camps like Baqa’a without asking any questions? And is Senator Leahy, who treats questioning the UN bureaucracy as an unpatriotic act, the real patriot, or is he the pawn of a gang of tyrants who have one hand on America’s shoulder and the other on the knife in its back?

Unless we are expected to keep on funding Baqa’a on its 200 year anniversary, sooner or later the numbers have to be added up, and people whose only claim to the bottomless aid bucket is that their great-grandfather was on the losing side of a war of conquest, started by their side, will have to get a job.

    This is the consequence of kissing Muslim asses and buying into their false narrative of "Israeli occupation.'
    Israel resettled Jewish refugees expelled from Arab lands about the same time Palestinian refugees were ordered to leave Israel by invading neigbouring Arabs in the prelude the 1948 war… to ensure clear killing fields for Jews.

    Israel has since resettled Jewish refugees and transformed them into productive citizens.
    There's no reason why oil rich Arabs who have vast swaths of empty uninhabitted territory could not have done the same for the Palestinian refugee problem they created.

    Cash strapped, heavily indebted United States has absolutely no business funding Palestinians, when oil rich Arabs are awash with petrodollars. It makes no sense to borrow money from China to fund Arabs that hate and want to kill Americans.

      The mighty O is trying to replace cultures with Islam.

      What you need to know is Dearborn MI is full of paid for to bring them here Palestinians. Obama paid to bring them here. He needs to bring 100 million here to make the US an Islamic country. We are one executive order from that. He can bring muslims in countries the govt has fallen in. Those governments fell over the US dollar devaluation. Wait till after the election.

    “Is it really in America’s national interest to turn over its foreign policy to the Muslim monarchies who birthed Al-Qaeda and are conducting a covert war against the West? Is it in our interest to keep funding terrorist training camps like Baqa’a without asking any questions?”

    NO!

    It is time to tell Jordan to Sh*t or get off the pot. America is done paying for their people; the very people they oppress and blame Israel for. NOT ANOTHER CENT to any of these Islamic Countries which MUST eventually be in conflict with us just because of our Constitution. These countries aren’t fooled by our appeasement. It is the USA that is fooled. Enough is enough. If in all these years they couldn’t find a way to progress one iota than perhaps they should face the consequences…without bilking us.

  • Schlomotion

    Mr. Greenfield's article simply proves that Jewish Nationalists are on the wrong side of alternative fuels, of reducing pollution, of human rights, and of Federal Reserve reform. They love their fellow Jewish Nationalists and then money in that order. This article is nothing but an organized attack on the money of Palestinian refugees as a means to extend the Israeli Border Wall into the United States. This type of racism is atrocious and inexcusable, and the foreign nationalists who live in the US should be reminded that they have to share this place with others as it has been shared with them, or else risk vilification and expulsion themselves.

    • stern

      So you support US dollars going to bogus refugees (the only refugee population in history ever to pass its refugee status onto succeeding generations), rather than towards paying off the national debt, say?

      Your hatred of Jews and Israel is making you more and more idiotic by the day.

      • Schlomotion

        It is not Israelis' job to tell the United States which of our refugees are legitimate and which are not. Nobody hates you, you just aren't in charge here.

        • reader

          Why is it your job? Do you equate yourself with the United States, troll? This is a bit too much even for your self-aggrondizing critique of your literary talant, which is so-o-o-o unrecognized that you have to contend with the free for all of the internet. That's all you got.

          • Schlomotion

            It's just good citizenship for me to be concerned with the budgeting and the civic brotherhood toward immigrants and refugees who come here. That's not something that you just forfeit to some rabid Israeli who can't bear that Palestinians live in the US.

          • reader

            This is just good taqiyya horse sh*t. You've already trolled yourself to the point that you can't hide the fact that US citizenship means nothing to you.

          • Schlomotion

            You're so proud of yourself that you know that word. Taqiyya. However, dissimulation, or lying takes place in all religions, and Jews as much as any other group of people have secretly or discretely practiced their rituals, or pretended to convert, or pretended that they were having a discussion when they were really trying to advance their group identity. So what? So you have the Muslim word for it. In Hebrew it is be-tahbūlōt or בתחבולות. Abraham lied his way across North Africa saying his wife was his sister. It's written in your own books. There are numerous examples in the Torah where "God" instructed someone to lie.

            Every After-Tax dollar goes to the ever greedy OPEC.

            Socialists side with any reactionary entity that shares Socialist hatred of the US.

            Atheists who oppose christian, jewish values SUPPORT islamism, SUPPORT the construction of mosques while christians are massacred in Egypt, Pakistan, Nigeria, Indonesia.

            Socialists see islamofascists as allies in the socialist war against civilization.

            Where have you seen socialists, "anti-war" activists demonstrating outside of Syrian embassies/consulates in the US or Europe???

            Socialists denouncing Assad for his regimes murder of 10,000+ Syrians is "counter revolutionary". Russia defends the Assad regime.

      Mr. Schlomotion's comment simply proves that eating paint chips as a child will lead to a life time of mental handicaps. He loves his fellow anti-Semites and insane ideas in that order. This comment is nothing but an irrational attack on fiscally responsible ideology while defending murderers. This type of stupidity is atrocious and laughable, and these uneducated hatemongers who live in the US should be reminded that they have never bothered to get off their arses and do anything for this country and therefore should simply be happy at the freedoms they enjoy of our blood seat and tears.

      And if we are villified or expelled as he threatens, good luck to you in the future. Oh, and gfy!

      NONSENSE. Palestinian so-called "REFUGES" are the ONLY population on the Planet who actually INHERIT their "REFUGE" Status from One generation to the next, to the next, to the next ad infinitum. And Meanwhile, there have been slews of articles of how UNRWA, who doles the small fortune of Western Dollars to these people are actually involved in RADICALIZING them, essentially increasing Terrorist Attacks on Israeli citizens. Charming….

  • marios

    schlomotion is Muslim and lie, facts distortion, fraud, etc in Arabic taqiyya are what he and Islamists used.
    As in first comment Arabs of Palestine left Israel as Arabs leaders ordered them. So they are not refugees at all. Invented people "Palestinians" are world wide beggars, thieves, baby-murderers. They celebrated 9/11 as their victory everywhere including in US and in Chicago which is citadel of Democrats. The outnumbered Jews (more than 650000) who were expelled form Arabs countries are Refugees. Senator Kirk is a great personality, Patriot of USA and real friend of Israel. He understand that to support only ONE LOYAL ALLY IN THE ME ISRAEL is US interest. Democrats overwhelmingly are anti-Semites and use demagoguery to hide it as our Pres. BHO now. No surprise as socialists were always anti-Semites.

  • Nakba1948

    Only a Zionist fascist could think that some fanatic living in Brooklyn has more of a claim to the West Bank than my family and I; we can trace our ancestral roots in Nablus back to the 17th century. The only thing "fake" is the modern "state" of Israel. You clowns delude yourselves if you think it has any resemblance to the Israel of the Torah, Bible, or Qur'an. Not a one of you can trace your lineage back to individual Jews living in Biblical Israel. Ironically, most Zionists are secular, and I put a heck of a lot more stock in what religious Jews have to say about the fraudulent nature of the Zionist entity: http://www.nkusa.org/AboutUs/Zionism/opposition.c

    Are these good people "anti-Semites" too? Your desperation is showing. You and I both know that "Israel's" days are numbered. Palestine will again be free, from the River to the Sea!

    • Bulan Sabriel

      Where did your family come from before that colonized occupied-Schechem?

      • Nakba1948

        There are no records, to the best of my knowledge, predating those I have, but there's no reason to think that my ancestors weren't living in Nablus<b/> long before the 17th century. Zionists claim a legacy to the land based on apocrypha from thousands of years ago. Is a 400-year-old rigorous genealogy no good for you? (That's a rhetorical question; I could care less what you Ziofascists think. The entire world acknowledges the Palestinian Right of Return.Think about that.)

          There's no reason to think that the entire "Palestinian nation" in reference to the Arabs is not a KGB invention dating back to well after WWII, exactly when the KGB agent Arafat entered the scene and the USSR forced an infamous and vile "Zionism is a form of racism" resolution. The Palestinian Right of Return is exactly as legitimate as Hitler's claim for the lebensraum for his Reich and judenreine Europe.

    America and other Western countries are broke. Why are Americans immorally forced to finance global jihad? There are 56 Muslim nations. Muslims have the MORAL responsibility to take care of their own. Saudi Arabia is swimming in oil wealth and must do the ethical thing and financially take care of their Muslim brothers.

    Neturei Karta are JINO's (Jews in name only). Documents were found that showed the Neturei Karta were paid by the PLO. Neturei Karta are TRAITORS to the human race and I have told them so in NYC to their faces. They are disgusting.

    • Nakba1948

      And what sort of rabbinic authority are you that you can single-handedly decide who is and who's not a Jew? I know this much: the beliefs and actions of NK are much more in line with traditional Jewish teachings than are those of the bigots on this website. Which "documents" are you referring to? I've never heard such a claim. But supposing it were true: the PLO, however inept and corrupt, is committed to the liberation of Palestine through nonviolent means. So is NK. Why shouldn't they be allied? Neturei Karta represents the most righteous among people. That you would dehumanize them as you dehumanize my people tells us all we need to know about you.

    There used to be Jews living in Arab nations, but they also fled, in 1948 and subsequent years. Now there are virtually no Jews in Arab countries — even in a moderate Arab country such as Jordan. How many Jews do you think there will be in the terrorist state of Palestine when its flag flies over a new UN sanctioned sovereign nation? By the way, historically, until,1964, there never was no such people as Palestinians or never a Palestinian land, That is propaganda. Up until 1924 until they were defeated by the British, the land was owned by the Ottoman Empire (Turks) for 500 years except for the land that the Jews purchased back from the Ottomans in the 1800s which was larger than present day Israel.

    Mega money tax dollars $$ for Muslims in Palestinian Authority and more money for Arab Muslims in America?

    "Feds consider special rights for Arab Americans," by Rachel Leven for The Washington Times, May 29
    The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance.

    The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) petitioned Commerce earlier this year to ask that Arab Americans be made eligible for the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), which helps minority entrepreneurs gain access to capital, contracts and trade opportunities.

    The ADC petition cited “discrimination and prejudice in American society resulting in conditions under which Arab-American individuals have been unable to compete in a business world.” The group claimed discrimination against Arab Americans increased after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    My response in next comment.

  • Linda Rivera

    Muslims are the most powerful group of people in America (and the world)! Whatever Muslims ask for, they receive it! If you want special rights and privileges not given to others, you will have to convert to Islam!

    Muslims demand special prayer rooms in the workplace, universities and colleges. They demand special time to say their prayers at work, even though everyone else says their prayers at home! In the UK, America, and other countries, Muslims driving taxis and buses have refused to pick up blind/disabled passengers with dogs. Muslims are determined that their host countries must conform to the Islamic religion-political system-Sharia.

    Muslims apply for jobs where they know that the company requires their employees to wear a certain type of clothing. When Muslims get the job, they show up wearing their head covering and when told it breaks the dress-code, the Muslims sue in order to make non-Muslims OBEY them. And make lots of money from infidel employers!

    The demands of Muslims are never ending and if Muslim commands are not obeyed, Muslims, sue, sue, sue. This racket is very profitable financially and it also FORCES non-Muslims to OBEY Muslims.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      We can sue islamofascists too. Tie up the bums in court.

        You and whose dime?

        Remember when a greenmailer comes after you – they are judgment proof.

        And the Lefty courts are so lopsided – you cannot counter-claim.

        Green-mailer files petition claiming topeka owes a million, and topeka has to hire terrorists…

        b/c Muslims say so

        Evidence: America is evil – see Zinn

        In court, topeka shows they have never given terrorists any money.

        topeka is guilty – cause whitey’s gotta pay – or American’s if he ain’t white.

        In the counter-claim tho: topeka has to show the Green-mailer was caught red-handed wearing a suicide vest to a girl scout camp, film at 11.

        If topeka can prove it… the suit stops until Green-mailer can re-file as Gryn-mailer… and repeats the process until topeka caves….

        if Green-mailer runs out of money – he files for a grant – and as a Non-Profit NGO, on the Left, he pulls in 50k-500k, all he needs to keep going.

        If he’s too evil for the Fed’s they send him to Tides…

        Who else has that kind of money?

        All OUR Billionaires, including America-Haters like Buffet, Soros, and Cameron, are small time hoods compared to the Fed Govt that funds these guys.

        We pay for their team through our taxes.

    Discrimination by Muslims against non-Muslims is very shocking. Studies show that 80% of mosques in America teach violent jihad against hated non-Muslims. Non-Muslims are viciously dehumanized.

  • Linda Rivera

    Because peaceful Jews in the highly cherished Biblical homeland of Judea and Samaria OBEY God by living on the land He gave and because Jews worship the One Great Glorious, Awesome God, the Magnificent Creator, who is the total opposite of the Muslim god, Jews are horribly dehumanized by the Palestinian Authority. In the Palestinian Authority, savage Muslim killers of Jewish innocents are regarded as HUGE HEROES by PA Muslims. Sports teams, summer camps, streets, city squares, etc. are dedicated to, and named after cruel killers of Jews. God's eternal Law:

    YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, is regarded with contempt. God does not give ANYONE a free pass to break His holy laws because of their religion-political system.
