Each year, Australian taxpayers fund millions of dollars in foreign aid. This money is sent to humanitarian relief efforts around the world in the hope of improving the lives of those who are less fortunate. However good the intention, successive Labor and Liberal governments have been carelessly funding terrorism through foreign aid handouts.
Australia gives $43.8 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA) for Palestinian refugees in the Near East . This money is given to the local West Bank and Gaza Strip communities which is funnelled into anti-Israel groups such as Hamas as well as to anti-Israeli education programs.
The Liberal Democrats believe there should be an immediate halt of funding to UNWRA to reduce attacks on Israel. Australian taxpayers should not be complicit in assisting terrorism due to the gesture politics of the Liberal and Labor parties.
One of the lone voices in ending this aid is Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm. After hearing of these issues first-hand during a visit to Israel earlier in the year, Senator Leyonhjelm has been questioning the Liberal government on why this funding is continuing.
