    • The Palestinian plot to end-run Trump at the UN

      The Palestinians want your money, and they’re trying to make an end run around Congress to get it.

      On Friday, the United Nations General Assembly will vote on a resolution to change the way a Palestinian-centered agency is financed. For years, only a fraction of the funds for the UN Relief and Work Agency, which is dedicated exclusively to benefit Palestinians, came from UN budgets; 90 percent of the agency’s ever-growing needs were financed voluntarily by donor countries.

      The resolution, sponsored by a large group of countries sympathetic to the Palestinians, will recommend “a gradual increase in the support provided to [UNRWA] from the regular budget of the UN” by next year. Plus, mandatory fees in the past could only fund the salaries of non-Palestinian workers; the new resolution removes that restriction as well.

          GB, drive by your local beer store this evening and buy a Czech Pilsner, Pilsner Urquell is a good one. Israel and the Jewish people have got to be grateful after all.

                • NETANYAHU: UN SHAMES ITSELF; HALEY: MORALLY BANKRUPT

                  UN General Assembly condemns Israel for ‘excessive’ force at Gaza border

                  After US amendment censuring Hamas is rejected on procedural grounds, 120 countries vote in favor of resolution calling for 'protection' for Palestinian civilians

                  General Assembly resolutions cannot be vetoed. Unlike UN Security Council resolutions, they are not legally binding on member states. On June 1, 10 countries voted in favor of an almost identical text in the Security Council, proposed by Kuwait, but it failed to pass due to a US veto.

                      Maybe it's because many nations are concerned, it isn't just the organisation itself.
                      But it's a clear message to all members.
                      It seems that the US and Israël are right in any case, goodguys can't do bad things. What's next, deporting all "stateless" Palastinians to Syria? And you can separate kids and their parents...

                        What's next?

                        Maybe the Palestinians will finally understand that their objective of a Judenrein Palestine is nothing but a pipe dream.

                        Until then, I toast Trump and Haley for telling the UN to pound sand.

                            Why do you blame the organisation, and not it's 23 members that voted against the text? The UN is nothing but the voice of it's members...
