...now that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has signed a unity deal with the PA, it means that the U.N. is funding a terrorist-led legal war (lawfare) against our ally Israel. And since the U.S. funds the U.N.—upwards of 22% of the U.N.'s annual budget—it's now a taxpayer-funded jihadist legal war on Israel.

In their recently released U.N. Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for 2018–2022, the U.N. outlines it plans to cooperate with the PA on their "path to independence."
Every four years, the U.N. renews its anti-Israel commitment through a new UNDAF report. This report, like previous years, is rife with anti-Israel bias and both legal and factual inaccuracies. The document persists in describing Israel's lawful borders, including its capital Jerusalem, as "the occupation of Palestinian territory by Israel." In short, the report describes the very existence of Israel as a violation of international law. This is absurd.
What is even more absurd is that unlike previous UNDAF reports, this new framework not only declares lawfare on the State of Israel, but also pledges millions to support the PA's anti-Israel efforts. Specifically, the framework allocates millions of dollars to train, advise, and equip "Palestinian victims and institutions" with the "knowledge and tools to effectively access international accountability mechanisms in order to hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law," "strengthen the capacity of Palestinian organizations to advocate effectively for the Palestinians in the occupied territory," and help the U.N. advocate "on the impact of Israeli violation on Palestine's development prospects."
This supposedly neutral international body has once again shown its true colors. It has chosen to falsely accuse the only liberal democratic nation in the Middle East and aid a terrorist-led organization. It has opened its peacekeeping and judicial mechanisms to abuse. It has even gone so far as to fund these outrageous efforts.
Even worse, now that Hamas, a recognized terrorist organization, has signed a unity deal with the PA, it means that the U.N. is funding a terrorist-led legal war (lawfare) against our ally Israel. And since the U.S. funds the U.N.—upwards of 22% of the U.N.'s annual budget—it's now a taxpayer-funded jihadist legal war on Israel.
This cannot stand...
