Obama giving UNRWA $40 million

Now that Canada has decided to stop supporting UNRWA, the Obama administration is stepping into the gap by giving $40 million to the terror-dominated organization.
The United States announced on Thursday that it will donate $40 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Arabs in the Palestinian Authority-assigned areas, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria who fled when Israel was established in 1948. About a quarter of the package is supposed to be designated for food and the creation of jobs. The rest is for maintaining basic services provided by the agency.

The American funding comes despite a report commissioned by the European parliament, which showed that Hamas terrorists have been chosen by the agency's labor union to oversee its Gaza facilities, which was part of a Canadian decision last month to stop its UNRWA funding.
What could go wrong?

This is on Congress too. US Congress is the most pro-Israel body in the world (moreso that the Israeli Knesset even), but they need marching orders to get it right sometimes.

This is one of those cases where, for whatever reason, AIPAC has not sent the message that the funding should stop. Those directives usually come from the Israeli government itself.

I would have thought that the Canadian decision would have signalled a change in the weather on that issue with AIPAC, but apparently someone still wants the UN supporting the terrorists.
