Bassil Slams U.S. on UNRWA: We Won't Accept Naturalization, Partitioning

W460

Caretaker Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil on Sunday blasted a U.S. decision to halt funding for the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA, while stressing that Lebanon will not accept “naturalization or partitioning.”

“What does the 'deal of the century' has in store after Jerusalem was recognized as Israel's capital, the approval of the Jewish nation-state law and most recently halting funds for UNRWA to abolish the right to return? Refugees, displacement, integration, segregation and transfer!” Bassil tweeted.

And calling Israel a “one-sided state that rejects the other and seeks to create neighboring one-sided entities,” the minister and leader of the Free Patriotic Movement underscored that Lebanon will not accept the “naturalization” of Palestinian refugees on its soil, the “partitioning” of the country, or “a deal that would end the era of diversity.”

Why is the U.S obligated to give to UNRWA? How much do Bassil's bosses in Iran/Syria give to UNRWA?

As to naturalization of Palestinians, it is more than a broken record now and Bassil better find another amusing topic to keep his followers busy.

You better start feeding them ya bassil. You now have billions of dollars stolen from the people, you can certainly help the poor refugees.

Strong supporters of the Palestinians, such as Lebanon, Qatar, KSA, Iran, Sweden, Norway and France must show their support by contributing the funds needed for those in Gaza to live well, have excellent medical care and good housing and electricity. It is not realistic that the US, a strong supporter of Israel, will provide this funding as Gaza is committed to Israel's destruction.

There’s only one viable solution. The Israelis with dual citizenships should trade in their foreign passport and give it to Palestinian refugees. Either these Israeli Jews want to live next to God, or they want to live in New York, Paris, London and Berlin. That’s a task for the U.N. and it would be fair and square.
