US Turns Against Israel At UN

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Granting “Palestinian” “refugees” the right to return to Israel would be the end of Israel as a Jewish state. Furthermore, the issue of “Palestinian” “refugees” is a complete fallacy. A lie that has been perpetuated by the Palestinian Authority and the UN to destroy Israel.

The Biden Administration has been attacking Israel relentlessly as of late. However, it’s recent attacks against Israel is not surprising. Any honest person knew that the Biden Administration would be overtly hostile to the State of Israel. Just like the Obama Administration.

US changes its UN vote from ‘no’ to ‘abstention’ on UNRWA affirmation

By United With Israel, November 10, 2021

“As many Members know, under President Biden, the United States announced it would restore its financial support to UNRWA,” Deputy Ambassador Mills stated.

US-Israeli ties took a hit at the UN General Assembly when the Biden administration abstained from a vote on a resolution reaffirming the “right” of return for Palestinian refugees on Tuesday.

The General Assembly votes on the same non-binding resolution every year, expressing its support for the socalled refugees. During the presidency of Donald Trump, the U.S. voted against these resolutions. Biden’s abstention is in line with U.S. abstentions during Barack Obama’s term.

“This year, the United States returns to a position of abstention on the text “Assistance to Palestine Refugees,” American Deputy Ambassador Richard Mills told the UNGA’s Fourth Committee.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the committee “gave initial approval to six anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian draft resolutions that will come later this year to the UNGA plenum for a final vote.”

The current resolution on which the U.S. abstained passed by an overwhelming vote of 160-1 with nine abstentions. Israel was the only country to vote against it. Joining the U.S. in abstaining were Cameroon, Uruguay, and the Pacific island nations of Micronesia, Palau, Nauru, Papua New Guinea and the Marshall Islands.

According to the Post, the U.S. voted against two other resolutions regarding the UN Relief and Works Agency, which provides aid for Palestinian refugees.

Unspinning the Refugee Problem

The number of Palestinian refugees is a matter of contention.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees currently assists more than 82.4 million displaced people around the world. Refugee status is not passed on to descendants under UNHCR guidelines.

However, the UNRWA’s definition allows refugee status to be passed on to descendants. According to the UNRWA, there are roughly 5.4 million Palestinian refugees. In 2018, a classified State Department document reportedly indicated that there are only 30,000 true refugees.

While international law has provisions for compensating refugees for lost property, it contains no sweeping requirements or “rights” for refugees to return to their previous homes. What Palestinians call the “right” of return is a hope to destroy Israel’s Jewish character by overturning the demographic balance.

Israeli officials further argue that Israel has already taken in more than 820,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands, which amounts to a population exchange. Their absorption into Israeli society came with little to no assistance from the UN.

In contrast, the definition of “refugees,” according to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), has created another absurdity — roughly 63 percent of Gaza’s population is considered refugees.

Israel and the Trump administration maintained that UNRWA has perpetuated and politicized the Palestinian refugee situation, which is why many have called to eliminate UNRWA.
