99 percent of "Palestine Refugees" are fake
Arutz Sheva ^ | 13/1/18 | Daniel Pipes

.....

....Yes, contrary to what one might expect, the Government of Israel wanted continued U.S. payments to UNRWA, fearing that their termination might cause a new intifada, the collapse of the Palestinian Authority, or renewed warfare with Hamas. Also, Jerusalem sees UNRWA as a lesser evil than alternative recipients of the money, such as the PA.

.....

And even if no one replaced U.S. donations, denying UNRWA money does not get to the heart of the problem, which lies not in its sponsored activities but in its perpetuating and expanding population of "Palestine refugees" in three unique, even bizarre ways: allowing this status to be transferred without limit from generation to generation; maintaining the status after refugees have acquired a nationality (such as the Jordanian); and assigning the status to residents of the 'West Bank and Gaza, who live in the putative Palestinian homeland. These tricks allowed UNRWA artificially to expand the refugee population from 600,000 in 1949 to 5.3 million now; an accurate count of real refugees now alive numbers around 20,000.

Therefore, while enthusiastically endorsing Trump's political goals, I suggest that withholding funds is not the right tactic. Better would be to focus on the "Palestine refugee" status. Denying this to all but those who meet the U.S. government's normal definition of a refugee (in this case, being at least 69 years old, stateless, and living outside the West Bank or Gaza), diminishes the irredentist dagger at Israel's throat by over 99 percent. It also puts the "Palestine refugee" status into play, permits millions of Palestinians to live more healthily, addresses the dank heart of Arab anti-Zionism, and helps resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Accordingly, I propose... .....

The majority are Jordanian, and a subset of them tried to take over Jordan in the 70’s... And lost. Jordan executed over 5000 of them for an attempted coup. Starting in the late 60’s the “Palestinian” movement was funded by the KGB. They’re a complete fraud.

How about NO MORE refugee money to anyone, either here or abroad!

Tell them to listen to Tom Petty.

“Accordingly, I propose that the president adjust U.S. policy to work with Jerusalem and continue to send aid to Palestinians while making it contingent upon the overwhelmingly majority of recipients formally acknowledging that they are not now and have never been refugees.”

Accordingly, we decline to accept your proposal.

How about we do this instead? We cut off aid now, all of it, and offer to reinstate it if they redefine “refugee” as you suggest. Oh, and also do a lot of other stuff we’ll think up later.

So is Jordan. It was started by the British to give a fiefdom to one of the Hussein brothers, who had wanted to be king of Syria, but got thrown out of Syria by the French. British stole the land from the Jewish Homeland and gave it to the ousted Hussein. Another Husseini got Iraq. Another became the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. The Saudis got Saudi Arabia, and the French got ousted from Syria, too.

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity exists only for tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”

Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, 1977

It is ALL FAKE!

I liken the payments the US and other countries have made to the PA/PLO to the tribute paid to the Barbary Pirates in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

If “Millions for defense, not one cent in tribute!” was good for America in 1797, then, By God! it is good for America in 2018!

Quit paying these Moslem assholes and start killing them!

I remember way back on the TV news when they used to call Yasser Arafat, an Egyptian, then suddenly he was a Palestinian and we were expected to accept his being a Palestinian as the actual factual truth.

DNA tests for all, find out how many Palestinians are descended from the children of Israel who were forced by threats of death to submit to the islam. Can you imagine the identity crisis this would cause?

I’m pretty sure they have no economy except the international handouts. So defunding them would break up the party.
