Nasser Kandil wrote: UNRWA & Gulf money
 It is ironic that the American decision of stopping the funding of the Palestinian Refugee
Agency which was issued as a preparation for canceling the right of return from the
principles of the Palestinian cause aroused many questions regarding the fate of the
Agency and its offerings for hundreds thousands of Palestinians, while the Gulf money is
put in the American pocket. The issue of the Agency which depends on two hundred
million dollars a year is stopped by Washington.
 It is ironic too, that the Saudi and the Emirati satellite channels opened discussions and
dialogues with the Palestinian leaderships about their plans to stop this American threat
and how to deal with it, but no Palestinian leader dared to reply that the plan depends on
a word by the King of Saudi Arabia through a royal order to cover that amount now.
 In Lebanon there is a political party that supports Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries,
and TV channels that are funded by the Gulf countries, but both of them do not feel
ashamed of distributing panic and worry through presenting an issue as an entitlement
that confuses Lebanon which hosts half a million Palestinian refugees, instead of saying
that the required amount of money comparing with the Gulf capacities is simple and
trivial. Those who are concerned with the Gulf friends can cover the amount and there is
no justification for anxiety and panic since it is easy to solve.
 If you feel no shame, then do what you like.
