To grasp the complexities of the Israel- Gaza war, take into account that UNRWA the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, is responsible for the well being of 75% of Gaza’s population, who dwell in “temporary” UNRWA refugee camps since 1949. with the expectation that they will return to their villages that existed before 1948.

For 26 years, our news agency and research center, staffed by Israeli and Arab journalists has covered UNRWA… providing news agencies with features, monographs and films which reveal the inner workings of the only refugee agency in the world whose purpose is to maintain refugees in a situation of “refugee perpetuity” to the third and fourth generation..

Our news coverage of UNRWA can be perused at:

At the invitation of legislative staff of the Israeli Knesset, US Congress, the Canadian Parliament, the British Parliament and the European parliament, our office has screened our films shot on location in UNRWA facilities, and provided the findings of our UNRWA studies with donor countries that provide $1.2 billion each year fir this UN agency

Our agency also shared documented reports which show that Hamas embedded itself into the administration of UNRWA.

In that context, our agency discovered and documented that the new curriculum used by UNRWA prepares their half a million students to return – by force of arms – to Arab villages that existed before 1948, which have been replaced by Israeli cities such as BeerSheva, Askhelon and Ashdod – all of which have recently been pummeled by aerial attacks launched from Gaza.

For years, UNRWA has responded that our agency “fabricated” our investigations of UNRWA. UNRWA denied that UNRWA was involved in any “war curriculum”, and also denied that presence of terrorists or weapons in UNRWA facilities.

However, on Thursday, July 17-, UNRWA admitted that 20 rockets ready to be launched were discovered in an UNRWA school. UNRWA issued a release that it would “launch a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident”, stating the “UNRWA has strong, established procedures to maintain the neutrality of all its premises, including a strict no-weapons policy”

A change in UNRWA policy? Time will tell.

    Strangely enough, when UNRWA made the admission about the discovery of rockets in a school, they claimed it was a “first”.

    Given that there have been several reports of Hamas Islamic Jihad and Fatah storing and firing rockets from UNRWA schools in the past and pictorial evidence of this exists, could anybody tell me if the official who made the admission did so with a straight face?
