The United Nations agency that administers a school in Gaza where dozens of civilians were killed by Israeli mortar fire last week has admitted to employing terrorists to work at its Palestinian schools in the past, has no system in place to keep members of Hamas or Islamic Jihad off its payroll, and provides textbooks to children that contain hate speech and other incendiary information.
A growing chorus of critics has taken aim at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in recent years, although momentum on Capitol Hill has been slow. But last week’s incident, which Israel maintains was prompted by Hamas operatives firing mortars at Israelis from a location near the school, has prompted some lawmakers to scrutinize the U.N. agency.
Rep. Steve Rothman, D-N.J., introduced a resolution in the fall calling for greater transparency and accountability at UNRWA. The bill called on the agency to make its textbooks available on the Internet for public inspection and to implement “terrorist name recognition software and other screening procedures that would help to ensure that UNRWA staff, volunteers, and beneficiaries are neither terrorists themselves, nor affiliated with known terrorist organizations.”
Rothman said he plans to re-introduce his UNRWA resolution in the coming weeks because, “as timely as this bill was before, it is even more timely now. It is urgent that Congress can be assured that U.S. taxpayer money is not being spent to support Hamas and its murderous activities.”
Ahh here is a little bit more of that TRUTH, funny how it usually takes a couple of days for the TRUTH to come out…
This part is rendered a lie ” The United Nations agency that administers a school in Gaza where dozens of civilians were killed by Israeli mortar fire” by THIS PART “U.N. Agency That Runs School Hit in Gaza Employed Hamas and Islamic Jihad Members” Holy shit that can’t be right? Do you mean those INNOCENT Palestinians that elected the TERRORIST organization to represent them, they are all HUMAN SHIELDS and they elected to continue that trend. I suggest Israel oblige them, the gene pool needs some chlorine in Gaza.
