Dept. Covers Up How Many Real Refugees are Still Alive
January 20, 2018
The State Department is sitting on a classified report that
states what anyone who reads the first paragraph in Wikipedia about the UN
agency caring for Arabs who left Mandatory Palestine during Israel’s 1948 War
of Independence: after 70 years, those refugees are almost all gone.
According to that classified State Dept. report, The
Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday, the actual number of authentic
refugees hovers around 20,000.
One of the questions on the FAQ page of the United Nations
Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) website
is: “Who is a Palestine refugee,” the answer to which is: “The operational
definition of a Palestine refugee is any person whose “normal place of
residence was Palestine during the period June 1, 1946 to May 15, 1948, and who
lost both home and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 conflict.”
The FAQ page then continues: “Palestine refugees are
persons who fulfil the above definition and descendants of fathers fulfilling
In other words, a person who was born in a refugee camp
somewhere in the Middle East and lived there all his life, never having been
inside Israel, is considered as if he himself had been uprooted from Palestine
between 1946 and 1948. Which is why UNRWA, whose original list of uprooted
dependants included 860,000 persons, today cares for more than five million, in
Judea and Samaria, Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that UNRWA was created
to make sure that some day Israel would be forced to resettle within its borders
not only those whose feet touched the ground there before 1948, but all their
offspring. There is also no doubt that UNRWA was created to cultivate a
demographic time bomb specifically against the Jewish State. Because, unlike all
the other refugee agencies, UNRWA is the only one dedicated to prevent the
rehabilitation of its clients by keeping them as eternal refugees.
UNRWA is the only refugee agency which is separate from the
United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the main UN refugee
agency, which is responsible for aiding non-Palestinian refugees all over the
world. Unlike UNRWA, UNHCR has a specific mandate to aid its refugees to
eliminate their refugee status by local integration in the country to which they
fled, resettlement in a third country, or repatriation when possible.
In other words, while UNHCR’s business is to cut down on
the number of displaced persons by helping them move on with their lives, UNRWA
is dedicated to keep them displaced – to the tune of at least $1.1 billion
annually, the US share of which in 2016 has been $368 million.
That’s a lot of mullah for 20,000 actual refugees.
According to the Beacon, any US official who wishes to read
the report must have top-secret security clearance and access to a secure
facility containing the documents.
Or plug “UNRWA” and “UNHCR” in their Wikipedia
According to the Beacon, The UNRWA report was first
commissioned in 2015 by former senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), who then forwarded a
congressional amendment to require the State Department to provide Congress with
a report on the number of refugees served by UNRWA who actually lived in the
territory now known as Israel between 1946 and 1948. But the State Department
classified its report, and never informed the senator.
When Congress heard about it in 2017, it directed the State Department to provide an unclassified version of the report – which was ignored.
