Welcome to UNRWA: STOP TEACHING HATE

A Petition to Promote Peace in the Middle East
An eight year old report could reveal the true number of Palestinian refugees.
UNRWA: Stop Teaching Hate has joined with Honest Reporting in a “We the People” Petition to the White House asking for the declassification of a report which will expose the Palestinian Refugee Myth – in Ambassador Nikki Haley’s words it is very important to “declassify the report that provides a current estimate of the number of Palestinian refugees who are receiving support.
This goes to the heart of speaking hard truths in the name of moving peace forward.”
Together, we can reshape the narrative to more truly reflect reality.
This video, developed by our partner, Honest Reporting,
illustrates the importance of declassifying the report.

News bulletin from Joan Lurie


This week, Feb 14 – Feb 19 is Palestinian Child Soldier week!


The goal of this ongoing project is to stop the training of child soldiers – A form of child abuse and a violation of the Convention of the Rights of the Child. One of our goals is to stop child abuse; this is a cause with which we can all identify!

Every year the sponsors of the project dedicate a week to helping raise awareness of the training of child soldiers and to put a stop to it where possible. This year the campaign consists of sending emails to UNICEF personnel urging them to protest. After I had several conversations with the organizers, UNRWA has been added! Several dozen organizations will send mass emails to UNICEF and to UNRWA demanding that they call upon Hamas, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the PLO to stop training child soldiers.

We look forward to continuing to work with this project.



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.
