Giving money to the United Nations is a waste. Spending it on the whining terrorists living in Gaza and the West Bank is an even bigger waste.
But what if your name is Obama and you want to double your waste factor? Then you dump 250 mil on a UN agency that exists for no other reason than to cater to the whiny brats with a fictional identity and a live of killing people known ad Palestinians. And that way you get the worst of both worlds.
The United States announced a new contribution of US$123 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), which will enable the Agency to continue its work serving a population of some five million registered Palestine refugees in the region. This latest donation brings the total U.S. contribution to UNRWA in 2013 to US$ 244.5 million.
“Despite the difficult economic situation worldwide, the U.S. has proven once again that it is dedicated to the development of Palestine refugee potential,” said UNRWA Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi.
(By way of contrast , in 2012, the total cash donated to UNRWA by all Arab states was less than $16M, of which Saudi Arabia gave $12M.)
Now that comes on top of the foreign aid given directly to the Palestinian Authority. Obama had unblocked $500 million in aid back in March. And Kerry is pushing for a 4 billion dollar investment plan in the PA.
Man that Sequester sure was devastating.
