UNRWA Wipes Anti-Semitic Material From its Website With No Explanation

Leading Jewish blogger Elder of Ziyon has again caught the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) publishing and then deleting explicitly anti-Semitic material from its website.

Wrote Elder:

Last week, I reported that the UNRWA “human rights” school website included explicit antisemitism (a copy of the document can be seen here):

The Jews in the sixth and seventh centuries promoted social corruption (1981: 39), and the claim that they are God’s chosen people demonstrates that the Jews did not know anything about human rights.

Hamas Issues, Rescinds Sweeping Regulations on Journalists in Gaza - Hamas issued and then withdrew sweeping restrictions on foreign journalists working in the Gaza Strip in the aftermath...

A short time later, UNRWA took down the entire website. No explanations, no apologies – just another coverup.

Yesterday, I exposed that the last remaining Arabic UNRWA school website said to students that they should clean their schools, quoting a hadith that said that Muslims should be clean – unlike Jews. (Archives here and here.)

Less than a day later, UNRWA again removed the entire website. Again, no explanations or apologies. No indication that the topics being taught in UNRWA schools are any less hateful and bigoted than they were yesterday and last week and three years ago.

There are no longer any UNRWA school websites in Gaza, since every one I found contained hate. But there is no indication whatsoever that UNRWA has done anything to fix the problem.

A UN organization that gets nearly a billion dollars a year from the world’s nations is teaching hundreds of thousands of students hate and jihad, and when confronted with proof using its own websites, it engages in a massive cover-up.

Elder then added:

I spent a fair amount of time yesterday tweeting most of the news correspondents who cover the UN about this issue. While I did see some pageload activity showing that some clearly read my exposés, so far I have heard nothing from them asking for more details or any indication that they are working on stories.

In a related development, a prominent Conservative parliamentarian in Canada has urged the UN to investigate UNRWA. James Lunny called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to “investigate the complicity of UNRWA” and said countries that fund the agency, such as the United States, should “deal with some accountability measures.” Lunny was speaking in Ottawa alongside David Bedein, head of the Jerusalem-based Centre for Near East Policy Research, who alleged that Hamas, listed by Canada as a terror group, has taken over UNRWA.
