"United Nations Relief and Works Agency needs to go away" Op-Ed by Robert Singer

In a recent op-ed published in the Washington Times, Robert Singer reflects on the role of UNRWA as a system that perpetuates conflict, fosters victimhood and teaches hatred.

Following the revelations exposing UNRWA's involvement in the October 7th massacre, it became evident that the UN agency for refugees has deviated from its original humanitarian mission. 75 years after its creation, it is time that UNRWA turns into UNHCR.

"There can be no justification in 2024 for having two separate U.N. refugee agencies with different budgets, criteria, justification and staff. A Palestinian refugee should be treated the same way as any other, and durable solutions should be found to solve the challenge rather than perpetuate it."
