Political analyst on official PA TV: US President Trump’s “entirely Jewish team” is “working to eliminate the Palestinian cause”

Official PA TV program Talk of the Hour, on the employment crisis of UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) employees in “Palestine,” hosting publicist and political analyst Dr. Hani Al-Aqqad and supervisor of the UNRWA portfolio in the PLO Department of Refugee Affairs Muhammad Al-Subakhi

Publicist and political analyst Dr. Hani Al-Aqqad: “The letters exposed by the American paper Foreign Policy from [US Presidential Adviser] Jared Kushner speak about how UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) has become useless and a source of corruption, and therefore it needs to be ended [since] it is not carrying out useful tasks. Also when this man [Kushner] speaks, he speaks in the language of the Israelis, the language of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s government. He is not speaking an international language. You know and everyone knows that now the team, [US President Donald] Trump’s team, which is working to eliminate the Palestinian cause and end the struggle in favor of Israel, is an entirely Jewish team.”

The US news website Foreign Affairs published an article on Aug. 3, 2018, that exposed e-mails by US Presidential Advisor Jared Kushner discussing problems with UNRWA and calling for action against it.
