1950 UNRWA is Established


UNRWA LogoIn 1950, the UN set up the United Nations Relief and Works Agency as a temporary relief effort for Palestinian refugees.  Former UNRWA director Ralph Galloway stated eight years later that:

The Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem.  They want to keep it as an open sore, as a weapon against Israel.  Arab leaders do not give a damn whether Arab refugees live or die.  The only thing that has changed since [1949] is the number of Palestinians cooped up in these prison camps.”
