UNRWA: The embodiment of moral relativism

The very existence of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is an expression of moral relativism. This UN agency was established in 1949 to provide services for 750,000 displaced Palestinian refugees. Two years later the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was founded to “protect refugees and solve refugee problems worldwide.”[3] It would have been commonsense to incorporate UNRWA into this new body, which looks after all other refugees throughout the world.[4] The survival of UNWRA more than six decades later, while UNHCR deals with far larger numbers of refugees from all other countries, thus constitutes an expression of extreme moral relativism.

    UNRWA is the original welfare scam from which every other racket followed. Sadly, the taxpayers are forced by their own governments to finance these poverty pimps.

    It’s not ‘moral relativism’, it’s maintaining a ‘happy and contented Arab Bloc’ in the UN.
