Welfare for Palestinians without Dignity or Citizenship?

Reader comment on item: U.S. Efforts to Defund UNRWA: Successful or Not?

Submitted by Robert (United States), Oct 17, 2018 at 08:26

It is ultimately in the Best Interests of the United States not to support this HUMILIATION of the Palestinian Arab people for whom, by Culture, Dignity is so very important.

Perhaps now the US will fund a better cause, like Work and Housing for Palestinians in Jordan, the country that sprung out of the British Mandate for Palestine (to be free of Jews)?

UNRWA may compete with a far better American financed program that gives Palestinian a much better Capitalist alternative for Educated Palestinian Arabs competing against all other Arabs much further from the benefits of Modernity.

I know - you maintain that "Jordan Is Palestine" has outlived its vitality. I do not. Jordan is at least Palestine, yet it is also more than Palestine.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Defeat is a miserable experience. It requires the brutal realization that war goals will not be achieved. Sugar-coating means the war goes on.
