How UNRWA incites Palestinian children to violence and antisemitism
“Poisoning Palestinian Children – UN Watch Report on UNRWA Incitement”
The U.S. is the largest donor (pdf.) to The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), contributing $380 million in 2015.
We previously have reported how UNRWA indoctrinates Palestinian children to hate Jews and incites violence, VIDEO – How UN Refugee agency teaches children to hate and attack Jews:
We recently showed a video about how Palestinian incitement to violence is generated both top-down from the Palestinian Authority, and bottom-up through social media, VIDEO: No truly “Lone Wolves” in the Palestinian Knife Intifada
A newly released video expands on the problem of incitement.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is notorious for helping to perpetuate the Middle East conflict, among other ways, by perpetuating the “refugee” status of Arab refugees created during the civil war and Arab invasion at the end of the British Mandate for Palestine. These refugees are unique in that other Arab countries refuse to integrate them or allow citizenship, while UNRWA uniquely counts even subsequent generations as “refugees.”
But UNRWA does much worse. It helps incite violence against and hatred of Jews through bigoted education. A recent film and study released (h/t Elder of Ziyon) demonstrates the problem, Filmmaker Calls for UNRWA ‘Self-Introspection’ Over Palestinian Classroom Incitement:
UN Watch just released a 130-page report, Poisoning Palestinian Children – Report on UNRWA Incitement (full embed at bottom of post). The report was presented earlier this month to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
The Executive Summary to the Report describes the overall nature of the evidence presented:
This report exposes more than 40 Facebook pages operated by school teachers, principals, and other employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which incite to terrorism or antisemitism. The report is divided by region, and includes UNRWA staffers in Lebanon, Jordan, Gaza and Syria. These cases are additional to the 30 cases of incitement revealed at the end of 2015 by UN Watch.
The examples of incitement in this report include UNRWA teachers and staffers celebrating the terrorist kidnapping of Israeli teenagers, cheering rockets being fired at Israeli civilian centers, endorsing various forms of violence, erasing Israel from the map,
praising Hitler and posting his photo, and posting overtly antisemitic videos, caricatures, and statements.
The following recommendations are made:
In light of the foregoing, UN Watch urges all donor states—and in particular the U.S., the EU, the UK and Canada—to:
(a) Demand that UNRWA be in full compliance with its obligations, including each of the provisions outlined above, prior to donor states releasing any further funds to UNRWA;
(b) Demand that UN Secretary-General António Guterres and UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krähenbühl immediately condemn their employees’ incitement to terrorism and antisemitism; and
(c) Demand that UNRWA adopt a zero tolerance policy for employees who incite racism or murder by immediately terminating them, and prominently post on its website these and other actions it is taking to root out this insidious conduct by UN staff.
This video demonstrates much of the incitement:
The U.S. is one of the largest donors to UNRWA. It’s time either for UNRWA to stop the incitement, or to lose U.S. taxpayer dollars.

Yes — but what does Morning Joe think??
I’m curious – how much money does Germany contribute? Much of what is described is against German law. Are the Germans funding activities that would be considered criminal acts if committed by German citizens?
Stop the funding. How about setting up a petition asking Trump to kill those funds, those funds can be directed to building the wall, or better yet, deploying drone swarms along the border, and mines at various depths to make tunnel building interesting.
UNWRA is the mother of all enablers for Palestinians. It enables them to live in refugee camps unemployed; it enables them to remain in poverty. It enables them to radicalize. In Gaza, it even enables them to store weapons in UNRWA buildings, as all UNRWA employees are-Guess Who? Yes, Palestinian refugees. But most importantly, UNRWA keeps the Palestinians weak and addicted to UNRWA. Maybe UNRWA is better for Israel? Who knows.
Heh – over at Ace of Spades this morning, the image he has up is of Palestinians burning Valentines Day cards with the caption: ROSES ARE RED, VIOLETS ARE BLUE, SAY NO TO THE JOOS, OR I KEEEL YOU!!!
P.S. With all due respect, the recommendations made for UNWRA are pointless. It’s like asking the KGB to interrogate suspects a little more gently.
The UNWRA is one of those organizations that is so totally corrupt that reform is not possible. It has to be first, disengaged with, and second, attacked at every opportunity and in every way, until it is destroyed utterly.
In 2015, the USA gave UNRWA $380M, the EC gave $137M, the UK gave $100M, and Germany gave $92M.
The thing is, for all that Israel complains about UNRWA, itdoesn’t really want it gone.
