Why are we backing UNRWA, the United Nations’ permanent inciter?
After the latest violence in Gaza, it is clear that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency’s continuous support of Palestinian terrorism is a major cause of instability in the Middle East and should be defunded.
According to newly released footage inside Gaza, Palestinian children in UNRWA schools are being encouraged to take part in deadly riots at the Israeli border. Palestinian school children recounted being taught that they have the right to attack Israeli civilians by all means necessary, including “weapons, stabbing and car ramming.”
This revelation is the latest in a disturbing trend of cooperation between UNRWA and the terror group Hamas. In June 2017, UNRWA announced the discovery of a terror tunnel under two of its schools in Gaza. During Operation Protective Edge in 2014, Hamas weapons were found inside UNRWA’s schools as often as three times in a single week.
Occasionally, UNRWA actually returned discovered weapons to Hamas terrorists that would later be used to attack Israelis. Hamas has fired rockets against Israelis from UNRWA schools, parking lots, hospitals, and residential areas, all the while using Palestinian civilians as human shields.
