Opinion – US cuts nearly USD300 million in aid for Palestinian refugees – Fox News

Here’s powerful article from Fox News, highlighting America’s decision to pull the plug on Palestinian aid via the UN. There is the precedent, with the US pullout from UNESCO. Because of intermediaries, a surpisingly small portion of the funding reaches those most in need. Also the UN is deeply biassed according to the US. Analysts argue that the US is looking for other donor countries to shoulder more of the burden and the US is looking for more effective distribution channels for foreign aid. Sadly, we live in an age where international agencies and charities are increasingly meddling in politics, rather than focusing upon the effectiveness with which they meet their core objectives.
