Do I really care about anything LAD posts? No, not really. That is why I don't bother to read his posts because I know LAD has some serious issues with JOOS that need to be addressed, as to why they fascinate him and why he is such a Jew hater.

You stopped posting the article. Perhaps because it showed that Dheisheh was in the West Bank and in an area under PA governance. The rest of us would then conclude that it was the Palestinians themselves that were responsible for the conditions in the camps.

Ah, what might have been done with the money stolen by the Palestinian Authority. Perhaps if they had not turned down a peace arrangement with Israel so many times, and walked away from negotiations so many times they would have been better off.

Or perhaps you were afraid to post the link as it would show solid buildings with water towers and TV antennae no doubt connected to the latest flatscreen TVs. (Poor people - they don't have cable. Sob.)

Nah, better to live on UN handouts.

A few dozen protesters closed down the UNRWA headquarters in Ramallah. Why? Because UNRWA which is supposed to be apolitical (it's not really) hadn't issued a statement supporting the terrorist hunger strikers in Israeli jails. Contrary to what the MSM implies, most of the hunger strikers are not detainees rather they are longer term prisoners convicted of a variety of charges.

UNRWA should be disbanded. It's budget and responsibilities handed over to UNHCR which actually does resettle refugees instead of keeping them in camps. After 64 years one should concede that UNRWA has failed in it's original mission. Camps within the West Bank should be handed over to the Palestinian authority.

Armenia: one of the most successful voluntary naturalisations in recent decades

In one of the most successful voluntary naturalisations of refugees in recent decades, the number of refugees from Azerbaijan obtaining Armenian citizenship reached 65,000 by the end of January 2004.

The naturalised refugees were among the 360,000 ethnic Armenians who arrived in Armenia from Azerbaijan between 1988 and 1993 as a result of the conflict over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. With no resolution in sight for the Nagorno-Karabakh situation, the government and UNHCR have focused on helping refugees integrate locally in Armenia. Local integration is, of course, one of the three main solutions that we seek for refugees - the other two being repatriation or resettlement to a third country. Naturalisation became an option for the refugees in 1995 with the enactment of a citizenship law containing special provisions to make naturalisation much easier for refugees from Azerbaijan. UNHCR supported the process with financial and material assistance to regional government offices to help with administration and paperwork.

At first, relatively low numbers of refugees came forward, mainly due to a lack of awareness of the right to naturalise and of the necessary procedures. In 1999, UNHCR began an information campaign in conjunction with the government to better inform refugees of this option. In part thanks to this campaign, the numbers shot upwards, with nearly 8,000 naturalising in 1999. Another incentive for naturalisation came after July 2000, as former Soviet passports could no longer be used for travel outside of Armenia. Citizenship allows refugees to obtain an Armenian passport. The numbers nearly doubled in 2000, with more than 15,600 naturalisations, followed by another 16,300 in 2001. More than 17,400 others naturalised over the next two years, and the more than 300 new citizens in January, 2004 pushed the total to over 65,000 since 1995.

Other large-scale voluntary naturalizations of refugees in the past include over 8,000 Guatemalans in Mexico since 1996, and 36,000 Rwandans in Tanzania in 1980.

Since 1948 an estimated 3150 people have been killed by terrorist attacks in Israel and 4-5 times as many injured (not counting war casualties, of course).

http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/terrorism/terrisraelsum.html

In population equivalent terms for America, that would be 130,000 dead.

If terrorists had killed 130,000 Americans and injured half a million, how do you think Americans would react and what would the USG be doing about it?

Success Story A UNHCR Livelihoods Project
Expressions in Exile
Bangladesh

OVERVIEW
Refugees are not formally allowed to work in Bangladesh, however income generating
activities undertaken at home, and service provision in the informal sector, are areas where
refugees are allowed to work. Working in these areas increase their self-reliance.
UNHCR is working in partnership with the private sector and NGOs to help refugees develop
their skills and ensure that their products are able to be sold. Expressions in Exile is the brand
name for the products that were initially started by five refugee women from the Chin State
of Myanmar. The women were, until March 2009, largely reliant on UNHCR's assistance and
used to make traditional Chin blankets for their own use. Through partnerships, the refugees
have improved the design, quality and access of their products and are now making shawls,
scarves, ponchos, baby blankets, picnic blankets, bed spreads and bags. Demand for
Expressions in Exile products has exceeded expectations and UNHCR is, together with
partners, helping the women to assess the viability of expanding their production. In the near
future it is anticipated that more refugees could get involved.

AIM OF PROJECT

There was increased need to support all refugees in their self-reliance efforts. Moreover,
there was a protection imperative to empower women economically by improving their skills.
· To build partnerships between refugees and NGOs and private enterprise that are
sustainable and that do not require UNHCR's intervention in the long run.
· To encourage refugees who are self-reliant to extend support to other refugees and
other members of their community, including Bangladeshis who are extremely
vulnerable or who need to also become self-reliant.

PROJECT OUTPUTS/RESULTS

The refugee women are now supplying their products to outlets of two successful businesses
in Dhaka which specialize in handicrafts. Since its inception in mid-2009, Expressions in Exile
has made a net profit of about US $700. Most sales were realized during the British High
Commission Fair, and through supply orders from a fair trade organization, Hathay Bunano
ps1 and Jattra, a retail outlet. The women have outstanding supply orders with Jattra and
DriVen Partnerships2 (a social enterprise).
Interest in their products has also been expressed by several overseas-based
businesses, and the women are preparing for more Trade Fairs later in the year.
The project has empowered them, it provides a forum for peer interactions and
support, and is an informal community protection network (CPN).

When UNRWA asks for more funding, check their track record in resettling refugees - and just say no.

WORLD REFUGEE DAY: UNHCR savours Nepal success

KATHMANDU, JUN 19 -
Resettlement of the Bhutanese refugees living in Nepal has become the largest resettlement programme of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), according to the UN body.

Over 32,000 Bhutanese refugees have left for the United States and other countries since the UNHCR launched the resettlement programme in November 2007, said UNHCR in a release on the eve of World Refugee Day.

The US alone has accepted 27,926 refugees. Refugees have settled in other countries like Australia (1,530), Canada (1,445), New Zealand (447), Denmark (326), Norway (324), and the Netherlands (178), while some 100 refugees are expected to leave for the United Kingdom soon.

"We are very proud to be the largest resettlement programme and I am very pleased to announce this on the occasion of the World Refugee Day," said Stéphane Jaquemet, UNHCR Representative in Nepal.

UNHCR's budget was 3.32 billion US in 2011.
UNRWA's budget was 1.2 billion US in the same period.

Here's a suggestion - move refugees in Somalia to the West Bank... and refugees in the West Bank to Somalia. Put UNHCR in charge. I'd say the former would be instantly far better off and much more grateful. Not only that - the Somalis would probably sign a peace agreement with Israel the next day and prosper. And we'd actually have peace!

When UNRWA asks for more funding, check their track record in resettling refugees - and just say no.

And, UNRWA in Gaza is rife with Hamas. When questioned about this UNRWAs head in Gaza one Karen AbuZayd "... said it was too difficult for UNRWA to run checks against terrorist watch lists because "Arab last names sound so familiar."

Syria suicide bombers kill 55, ceasefire in tatters

Reuters) - Two suicide car bombers killed 55 people and wounded 372 in Damascus on Thursday, state media said, the deadliest attacks in the Syrian capital since an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 14 months ago.

The blasts further shredded a ceasefire that was declared by international mediator Kofi Annan on April 12 but that has failed to halt bloodshed pitting Assad's security forces against peaceful demonstrators and an array of armed insurgents.

Opposition leaders said Annan's peace plan was dead, while Western powers insisted it remained the best way forward.

Muslims killing Muslims. It's the weather channel.

The only problem is the stupid headline. There was never a ceasefire.

I searched the UN site for mention of any action that it took as a result of the Hama massacre in 1982. Care to guess the results?

I see your point, J. Schwarz. His posts make as much sense whether you read them or not.

On my doctor's advice, I'm no longer allowed to read his posts. I'm on a low SPAM diet. :(

I wonder if the guy ever looks at the adds to the discussion section? Most normal people if they saw what they wrote did not add to the discussion would think maybe there is something wrong with the posts, but others who are oblivious would have no clue. Why would some people have no understanding of what others think about the posts? That is why some people are in need of serious help.

No, but tell us what you came up with. (I already know.) Only that George Galloway's "Viva Palestine" convoy, now in Syria, didn't make a stop there or in Homs - where whatever "aid" they are carrying might actually be needed. There are none so blind.

Maybe Bookie and Asma Assad can share beauty tips - like what shade and brand of mascara to wear to a massacre.

The only thing I found was very recent and was meant to prod the UN (via a guilt trip) to take action this time around. Asma had better have a fast getaway plan. I don't think that she'd get the courtesy of having her shirt pinned up like Claretta Petacci's if she were to be caught.
