Palestine’s exploitation of its refugees and use of children as human shields are among the most shameful practices in the Israel-Palestine conflict. ++ The international community has for years sustained these abuses: the UNRWA perpetuates the misery of Palestinian refugees, doing nothing to dismantle camps or help them rebuild their lives, acting as “facilitator for the terrorists' goal of grinding an entire civilian population under their thumb.” ++ The West has a duty to condemn these tactics and recognize Palestinians’ human rights.
