Welcome to UNRWA: STOP TEACHING HATE

Israel Defense Forces

News bulletin from Joan Lurie

David Bedein, Director of Israel Behind the News has been in the forefront of supporting research to expose the content of and damage done by UNRWA education. Now he has started a campaign to encourage current donor nations to stop paying without conditions on how the money is used. Since the overwhelming majority of UNRWA funds come from donor nations (and not directly from the UN) withdrawal of these funds or, better, conditioning continued funding on improving the education could be an effective strategy. This letter is being posted because we believe this is a necessary step especially since the Biden administration is going to restart US payments to UNRWA which had been cancelled by the Trump administration.


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.
