The meaning of UNRWA’s real work and misguided congressional folly

From Arab American Institute

In today’s Washington Post, an Associated Press story appears about 14 year-old Palestinian girl, Asil Abu Lil.  Asil, along with two of her classmates, have reinvented the walking stick.  Literally.   According to the report, Asil was driven to redesign the simple walking cane after watching her blind aunt and uncle struggle in the hilly countryside of their Palestinian village.  This resourcefulness and ingenuity has landed the girls a spot in Intel Corporation’s International Science and Engineering Fair in San Jose, California next month.  The prestigious fair, the largest in the world for youth, receives more than 6 million applicants worldwide and only 1,500 are chosen to attend as finalists.  This is the first time ever Palestinian students have been selected to make the trip to California.
