UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees....

Som interesting facts about their 2006 budget.
Of UNRWA's $462 million 2006 budget, $137m. came from the US, $41m. from Sweden, $27m. from the UK and $12m. from Denmark. Saudi Arabia, the world's richest oil-producer, managed to scrape a mere $1.2m. Smaller Kuwait managed a tad more with $1.5m., still a drop in its overflowing oil bucket. The rest of the Arab states are even less generous. Oil-rich Bahrain spared no more than $30,000. Indeed the Arab world's share has declined. In the 1980s it financed 8% of UNRWA's outlay. By 2006 it put in less than 3%.

Palestinians are cannon fodder, they're supposed to die for the 'Arab cause' - so Arabs don't waste their money on them, improving their lives would make them less willing cannon fodder.

UNRWA is one of the greatest causes of the Palestinian "problem" being an ongoing one.
