Chloé Valdary is a junior and an International Studies Major at the University of New Orleans. In 2012, Chloé created the group Allies of Israel on her campus to promote the Jewish state and Israel advocacy. In the spring of 2013, She held the first pro-Israel rally on her school’s campus, called ‘Declare Your Freedom.’ Over 100 people were in attendance, and the speech she gave went semi-viral in 10 days. As a result of her work, she has been covered by such groups as Jewish Press, BET.com, Breitbart.com, The Jerusalem Post, and Israel Hayom, to name a few. She was named one of the top 100 people positively affecting Jewish and Israeli life in the Algemeiner’s inaugural celebration of this category. This list included notable figures like Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Barack Obama, and filmmaker Stephen Spielberg. Chloe has written articles for The Jewish Press, CAMERA on Campus, Arutz Sheva, The Jewish Thinker and The Times of Israel.
Based upon the premise that the UNRWA uses to define refugee, every Jew on the face of the earth is a refugee. There is thus a horrid double standard being employed. If in principle, every Palestinian Arab must return, then by that same principle, every Jew must return. And not only to Israel proper, but to Gaza. They must work to build up every settlement they have begun. They must return to the Temple Mount. Think of the abject irony. If the UNRWA stands on principle, the logical conclusion of its premise is that the Jewish state must only grow in territory and in Jewish population. Because the UNRWA does not promote this, its platform is inherently contradictory and of course anti-Semitic.
