Netanyahu urges UN to dismantle its Palestinian aid agency
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Sunday for the United Nations to shut down its Palestinian refugee aid agency, saying it was responsible for incitement against the Jewish state. Netanyahu said he raised the issue during the visit in recent days of Washington’s UN envoy Nicky Haley, who has accused the United Nations of bias against Israel. He said that while millions of other refugees around the world were cared for by the office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), only the Palestinians have their own body. “In UNRWA’s institutions, there is a great deal of incitement against Israel,” Netanyahu said during the weekly cabinet meeting. He also said the agency’s very existence “perpetuates and does not solve the Palestinian refugee problem”. “Therefore it is time to dismantle UNRWA and merge its parts into the UNHCR,” he added.
