CIDA's non-humanitarian programming is limited to the West Bank. In Hamas-controlled Gaza, CIDA only funds humanitarian projects using trusted partners, such as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.UNRWA? Trustworthy? Don't make me laugh/cry. It's unlikely we'll ever know how many of our taxpayer shekels funneled to our "trusted partner" have ended up in the hands of jihadi Hamas. But since Hamas is now sharing the duvet with Abbas as they go for statehood at the UN, isn't it high time for Canada to cut them both loose?
