PA Chooses to Fund Terrorism Rather Than Education

While the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) faces a serious financial crisis, President Mahmoud Abbas insists the PA will continue to pay salaries to convicted terrorists and their families, “Even if we need to cut from our flesh”.

UNRWA is currently facing a financial crisis which places its educational programs, serving 320,000 children, in doubt. UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl announced last week that the schools will open on time but the problem is not solved.
“While announcing today the opening of the school year, I wish to be clear that UNRWA is by no stretch of the imagination out of the woods. Since January 2018, UNRWA has mobilized $238 M of additional funding, which is very encouraging. However, we currently only have funding to run the Agency’s services until the end of September. We need a further $217 M to ensure that our schools not only open but can be run until the end of the year.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
