Group raises alarm over UNRWA’s anti-Israel incitement within its Jerusalem schools
Remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House of Foreign Affairs Committee
David Bedein, head of the Center for Near East Policy Research, told JNS that as a result of the educational curriculum used in Shuafat’s UNRWA schools, “every child is indoctrinated that they should kill the Jews.” But what is unique, says Bedein, is the fact that “this is happening inside Israel.”
Scrutinizing UNRWA’s Schools
As co-chairs of ReformUNRWA: Stop Teaching Hate , we believe Ilhan Omar must be removed from the Committee and urge the committee Chair, Congressman Engel, and other democrats and republicans to work toward that goal.
UNRWA, why have you ignored this basic truth? (Jerusalem Post)
The United Nations has a terrible record in situations like this. When the Human Rights Commission was disbanded because of its bias and inaction against human rights violations, it was replaced by the Human Rights Council, which has adopted virtually all the abysmal policies and personnel of its predecessor. Changing the name of an organization does not change its agenda. We will continue to campaign for a replacement for UNRWA that will promote peace.

With the United Nations General Assembly meeting this past week, they have been keen to bring to the attention of the world the education that is being provided in UNRWA schools. We believe that the hate-filled education that has been provided to young Palestinians over the last three generations is a leading cause of the failure to achieve peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Our message is simple: The education of Palestinian school children must change drastically if there is ever to be a lasting negotiated peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Why? Because these schools have been inciting three generations of young Palestinians to hate and kill Jews, and the only means of conflict resolution that these students have been exposed to is one of violence.
