Donald Trump recently froze $125 million in U.S. funding for UNRWA unless and until the Palestinians stop using UNRWA-funded schools to incite students by promoting violence against Israel and its Jewish citizens. As everyone knows, that will never happen, so it’s time to cut them for good. Right now, ONLY the U.S and Europe funds this corrupt UN organization. Let the Muslim countries fund it.
BEHIND THE NEWS Under the Obama Regime, U.S. State Dept officials who supervise school books for the PA and UNRWA, assured us that new PA/UNRWA school books do, in fact, reflect principles of peace, tolerance and UN values.
On March 18,2016, the White House said:
“While there is still work to be done, the Palestinian government has made significant progress in reducing inflammatory rhetoric and revising official textbooks. Over the past few years, the PA has helped improve the Palestinian curriculum, including textbooks that discuss human rights and the Holocaust, which has contributed to a better education for young Palestinians. The Palestinian curriculum is transparent, and all textbooks are available for review in Arabic on the website of the official Palestinian Curriculum Development Center. The Government of Israel even approves of and utilizes the Palestinian texts for schools in East Jerusalem.“
None of the above is true, which you can see in the video below. A furious Donald Trump confronted PA leader Mahmoud Abbas about his lies about the UNRWA schools. And now he is putting his money where his mouth is.
