Former-Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat had been advocating for the closure of the Hamas endorsed UNRWA schools for years, arguing that all the schools in metropolitan Jerusalem should be overseen by the Israel Ministry of Education.

The Israeli government has decided to shut down schools operated by the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
While there are numerous refugee populations in the world, the only one enjoying the support of its own dedicated UN agency (UNRWA) is the so-called Palestinian “refugee” population (though it is debatable whether or not they can even be called genuine refugees). Continue Reading »
Jerusalem’s Mayor Nir Barkat goes to war on UNRWA, having formulated a detailed plan of action to completely remove the corrupt organization & their officials from Israel’s capital and replace its services with municipal services that are shared by the entire city.
By Tzvi Lev
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat revealed on Thursday evening a detailed plan of action he had devised to remove the UNRWA organization from Jerusalem and to replace the services it provides with municipal services.
Since 1965, the organization has been responsible for some 20,000 “refugees” living in the Shuafat camp, who also bear Israeli identity cards and are entitled to the National Insurance, Education and Health Services of the State of Israel and the Jerusalem Municipality as residents of Jerusalem.

Amid countries recently suspending their funding to the Palestinians after a new report revealed PA schools use Western money to teach the students to risk their lives and die as martyrs, the UK recently gave £20 million in aid to maintain Palestinian schools.

As support for the Palestinian cause drops off even in the Arab world, news that Australia has cut a $7 million ‘lifeline’ to a death-cult is welcome indeed.
Maybe it’s also time for Britain to get real – especially in the wake of the barely reported stoning of Prince William’s vehicle – and acknowledge the need to stop encouraging terror with taxpayers’ money. Continue Reading »

UNRWA, the only UN refugee agency dedicated to only the Palestinians, and the only agency paying full health, education and other services for Palestinian descendants, two & three generations on, receives a £38.5 million ($51M) boost from the UK, with other Western countries asked to pick up the slack.
The United Kingdom announced on Tuesday that it would provide £38.5 million in advanced aid to UNRWA after the Palestinian refugee agency was flung into a severe financial crisis due to the US decision to cutback $250 million in funding this year.
“The UK will deliver financial support to UNRWA earlier than originally planned, releasing £38.5m to the Agency which includes £10 million on top of the £28.5 million package of support announced by Minister Burt at the Extraordinary Ministerial Conference on UNRWA in Rome in March.”

After Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and other countries cut extravagant donations to UN Relief and Works Agency, claiming UNRWA is responsible for exacerbating & maintaining, rather than solving the problem, UN envoy Nikolay Mladenov tells Security Council that the UN’s Palestinian agency has ‘an unprecedented shortfall of over $250 million.

The UNRWA School System: A convenient, Western financed incubator for propagating Palestinian terrorists.
By David Bedein
The US government decision to suspend funds to UNRWA schools until reforms take place in UNRWA has raised some eyebrows.
Why did the US suspend funds to UNRWA in the first place?
Since 1999, Hamas has been chosen in successive internal UNRWA elections in Gaza to lead the workers union and teachers union of UNRWA, as mentors who influence generations of Palestinian refugee descendants to launch a violent Jihad for the ‘right of return’ to Arab villages lost during the 1948 war.
In that context, the first comprehensive study of UNRWA school books, completed in July 2017, reflects the terrorist domination of UNRWA schools. Continue Reading »
First, plagued with having UNRWA schools used to store Hamas rockets during the summer months, now, for the second time this year, a Hamas terror-tunnel was discovered beneath another UN educational institution in Gaza.
– UNRWA statement: “The presence of the tunnel underneath an UNRWA facility,” which retains immunity under international law, “is unacceptable and places the children and staff in danger” (by nullifying its immunity status when firing missiles at Israel).

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) discovered two weeks ago a Hamas attack tunnel underneath one of its schools in Gaza. Continue Reading »
Although Hamas has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to rehabilitate their attack tunnel network since its last war with Israel, Hamas denied any connection to the tunnel found under the 2 schools saying it “strongly condemned” the UNRWA statement because it can only be exploited by Israel to “justify its crimes.”
A Hamas tunnel passing between two Gaza schools belonging to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) discovered during construction work in June has been sealed.
UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness confirmed that the agency in charge of Palestinian refugees had closed the tunnel underneath the two boys schools in the Maghazi refugee camp, which was found during the summer holiday at a time when the schools were empty. Continue Reading »
