Corruption on top of failure at the UN’s Palestine agency.

President Trump cut off US funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees last September because UNRWA is “irredeemably flawed.” In fact, it’s worse than he thought.

An internal ethics report leaked to the press this week exposed a corrupt UNRWA “inner circle.”

Notably, its married director, Pierre Krahenbuhl, allegedly created a position for his married girlfriend in the Jerusalem office where he works. He also put her on “an extreme fast track,” then allegedly jetted around the world with her (business class), while she lobbied him to hire her husband, who was then conveniently farmed out to a Jordan field office as deputy director.

That’s just a nugget in pages of allegations describing a “toxic environment” full of “nepotism, retaliation, discrimination and other abuses of authority, for personal gain, to suppress legitimate dissent and to otherwise achieve their personal objectives.”
