#1 Among the group's projects are helping half a million children get an education and fending off attempts to radicalize them.

I'll bet even this "education" includes the definition of the word "fungible".

#2 This means we should cut even more, 'cuz our European 'pals' will pick up the slack every time, right? I sense a 'two birds with one stone' thing happening here.

#3  Belgium is stepping in to help the UN agency for Paleostinian refugees with a pledge of $23 million

Wouldn't it were better if you invested this money in Belgian Congo?

#9 I would suggest that had the West stopped funding UNRWA years ago there would be today few if any Palestine refugee camps.

#10 had the West stopped funding UNRWA years ago there would be today few if any Palestine refugee camps.

It was decades ago, but one of the things that changed my opinion of Paleos was some news footage from a Palestinian refugee camp showing people living in a two-story cinder block building. Conduit on the outside suggested electric service. Now maybe I'm a traditionalist, but for me, a refugee camp means tents, porta-johns and people standing in line for bags of rice and powdered milk. This was more like a cheap apartment complex.

Given the amount of money shoveled into the "Palestinian Cause", you could have created a freaking Abu Dhabi by now One of the glories of the Trumpening is that this long-running scam is coming to an end.

#11 Is Belgium up to date on their NATO spending. If not the money should be going there. Yes I know the EUnics are deadbeats but it's the proper shortfall to address.
