WATCH: At the UN Security Council, US Mideast Envoy Jason Greenblatt, blasts UNRWA failures, blaming the Palestinian refugee organization for squandering the significant funds donated by many countries, including the $6 BILLION contributed by the U.S. alone.
President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, said in a speech to the Security Council that the Palestinians would make a mistake if they did not come to the economic conference initiated by the United States in Bahrain.
“It would be a mistake for the Palestinians not to join us. They have nothing to lose and much to gain…” he said adding that it would be the first step towards a political solution to the conflict that would “transform the lives of the Palestinians.”
He pointed out the “irony” that at the same time as the economic conference in Bahrain, UNRWA will be hosting a “pledging conference for a broken system,” as he blamed the Palestinian refugee organization for squandering the significant funds donated by many countries, predominantly the US.

- Near ‘bankruptcy’ & hundreds fired, UNRWA pays $108k for new assistant
