Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Avi Dichter complained recently that the Hamas terrorist regime, which calls for Israel’s destruction, receives United Nations funding.
Speaking at the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Israel conference in Eilat on Tuesday, Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Avi Dichter (Likud) spoke of the funding sources for UN activities in Gaza, “Every year, the U.S. gives $350 million and the EU (European Union) gives $450 million. A clear majority of this money ends up in the pockets of Hamas.”
He added, “In our area, there are Israel, the Palestinian Authority (PA) of Mahmoud Abbas, and the Hamas regime. Abbas has not visited Gaza in nine years. And unfortunately, PA leaders do not have the courage to take steps toward peace.”
On the Palestinian refugee issue, Dichter said, “It is no less the PA’s problem than it is ours. Half of the residents of the PA are refugees.”
