The horrible role of UNRWA and its use by the US government over the decades

In the new book by Salah Salah (former politburo of the PFLP) he talks about UNRWA, and if there is someone who knows the Palestinian refugee camps intimately it is Salah Salah and his wife Samira.  UNRWA has been a tool of the US government often used to spy on the Palestinian people and to mould and change their political culture. There are declassified US document in which the US even considered (in the late 1960s) using UNRWA as a "security" force against the Palestinian people and its rising armed resistance groups but the rejection by the general secretariat of the UN torpedoed the plan.
