Next week, if not sooner, this will be portrayed as a callous UN betrayal of the Palestinians, no doubt engineered by shadowy Zionist hands. It would be so easy to support the cause of Palestinian statehood if they weren’t their own worst enemies, and if supporting Palestinians didn’t mean endorsing terror, intimidation, and the ultimate establishment of a Sharia state. From the Jerusalem Post, with thanks to LGF:
The United Nations decided over the weekend to suspend its construction project in the Jenin refugee camp after Palestinian gunmen threatened crews rebuilding houses destroyed during Operation Defensive Shield in 2002.
Five men armed with M-16 rifles raided the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) offices in the camp on Friday to protest that the new houses were two small. The gunmen threatened to harm the UN staff if their demands for larger houses were not met.
