Welcome to UNRWA: STOP TEACHING HATE

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) schools have been inciting three generations of young Palestinians to hate and kill Jews. We believe that the path to peace and reconciliation between Israel and the Palestinians begins in the classroom – BUT not in these classrooms:
Our goals are reformed textbooks and teachers committed to tolerance and peace. To quote Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the United Nations and an ardent supporter of the need to change the education Palestinian children are receiving in UNRWA schools:

UNRWA can stay there, and we will be a donor if it reforms what it does. If changes are made in the textbooks so there is no teaching of violence and incitement, if they change the refugee count to an accurate number, then we will look again at partnering with them.
THE PATH TO PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST BEGINS IN THE CLASSROOM…
BUT NOT IN THESE CLASSROOMS!
“OUR ULTIMATE GOALS ARE REFORMED TEXTBOOKS AND TEACHERS COMMITTED TO TOLERANCE AND PEACE.”

WHAT ARE PALESTINIAN CHILDREN
CURRENTLY EXPOSED TO IN THE CLASSROOM?

Incitement-filled books that encourage hatred and the killing of Jews, deny the existence of the Jewish State of Israel (a UN member state), claim that Jews have no historical connection to the land and glorify martyrs. Promoting martyrdom and jihad will not produce a generation of Palestinians inclined to negotiate a peaceful resolution of the conflict.

EVEN IF UNRWA WERE TO BE DISSOLVED, THE HATE AND INCITEMENT IN THE EDUCATION WOULD STILL HAVE TO BE ADDRESSED.

WHO WE ARE

The mission of the UNRWA: STOP TEACHING HATE Caucus is to ensure that the UNRWA/Palestinian Authority curricula conform to standards of peace and tolerance required by United Nations principles and documents. It is immoral to use textbooks which teach Palestinian children to hate and kill Jews, to glorify martyrdom, to vilify and deny the existence of Israel, and to use maps on which Israel (a UN member state) does not appear.
