U.N.-run schools have long been linked to terror, from acting as hiding places for Hamas' weapons and rockets to being where young terrorists are indoctrinated. The Jerusalem Post's Ariel Ben Solomon reports that American congressmen will begin an investigation into the incitement to terror being taught in UNRWA schools:
Members of the US House of Representatives are going to begin investigating incitement to terrorism in the Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) schools using material provided by a Jerusalem based research center, its director told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.
“Congress is going to begin an official investigation of UNRWA using some of our material to look at creating new standards for the organization,” said David Bedein, director of the Jerusalem based Center for Near East Policy Research.
“While they cannot defund or get rid of UNRWA, which is ensconced in the UN,” they can advocate changes be made, said Bedein, who also heads the Center’s affiliated Israel Resource News Agency, established in 1987...
Bedein’s organization released a new video, “The UNRWA Road to Terror: Palestinian Classroom Incitement,” showing youth that purportedly attend UNRWA schools voicing support for terrorism against Jews.
One student in the video named Arafat, an UNRWA student in Shuafat, Jerusalem said, “They teach us in school that Jews are fickle, bad people.”
“I am ready to stab a Jew, and drive [a car] over them,” he added.
Another UNRWA student in Kalandia said, “Stabbing and running over Jews brings dignity to the Palestinians. I’m going to run them over and stab them with knives.”
