The US support for UNRWA was not an act of generosity. The USA in 1950 was behind the establishment of the Agency, with a promise that its creation would lead to the implementation of resolution 194 (11 December 1948).

The resolution called for the unconditional return of the Palestinian refugees. UNRWA can only be dismantled if that resolution would be respected. The recent Trump decision is a break for the American commitment and responsibility and is made in the service of Israel.

with no concern to the American national interest. It is another case of the tail waving the dog. It can have disastrous effect on a community that has already suffered for seventy years and one hopes that other countries would chip in and replace the dishonest broker of peace.

They want to keep a military presence in the area for oil interests, for example. It's all about keeping a Western presence. It's why Europe supports Israel as well.

They money is coming from tax payers they decide where it goes and how much. The resolution doesn’t state the share of the US, US can cut as it sees fit, if you don’t consider it a generosity then tell me why the US gives more than all the other members of the UN?
