Hugh Fitzgerald: “Palestinian” Rage as the American Government Comes to its Senses

The United States on Friday ended all funding to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees,” and it is instructive to look back at the “Palestinian” fury at the American government earlier this year for cutting its contribution to UNRWA from $125 million to $60 million; it was something to behold. It was full of dire warnings about what terrible things would ensue for these “refugees” (that is, the five million people whom UNRWA calls “refugees,” even though only 20,000-40,000 are still alive of those who actually left Palestine in 1947-1949; the rest are the ever-multiplying descendants of the 700,000 Arabs who left). There were repeated warnings of “devastating consequences.” Apparently these desperate “Palestinians” have no other conceivable sources of support to call on, such as, for example, several of the richest countries, per capita, in the world — Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Kuwait, and Qatar. Between them, they can’t come up with an extra $65 million for their “Palestinian” brothers. This is strange, especially when you consider how very deeply they feel for the “Palestinians,” as is shown by their rhetoric and votes at the U.N. And it can’t be for want of money. Why, in the last year, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bought a $500 million dollar yacht, a $300 million dollar chateau, and a $450 million dollar painting by Leonardo, without batting an eye. Could it be that the P.A. insists that the money must come from the Americans, and not from other Arabs, to reinforce the idea that the United States “owes” the “Palestinians” this aid? From a January Al Jazeera report:
