(Worthy News) - UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn took to social media Saturday evening to call the US's decision to end its funding of UNRWA “shameful” and called it “a vital UN refugee agency.”

The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) supports roughly five million Palestinians in Jordan, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

Corbyn further stated that the “UK must help to fill the gap” left by contributing more to the agency.

The State Department said that the US has decided to end all funding for UNRWA and described the agency as “irredeemably flawed.” [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Let the Queen take it out of her rainy-day fund ...... you know, that $250 Million she gets annually as a stipend.
    That's one heck of a stipend. I wonder if that includes per diem.
    The Queen is a $ Trillionaire .... why does she need a stipend?
