Is renewed education on the premises of a United Nations school system not a positive development?

Not necessarily.

UNRWA schools in Gaza operate under the control of Hamas, defined by the US, Canada, the UK and even the EU a terrorist entity.

In consecutive elections since 1999, Hamas has won control of the UNRWA Gaza workers union & the UNRWA Gaza teachers union ever since.

Renewal of UNRWA schools in Gaza means that Hamas can again operate from a convenient base of operations, to motivate an indoctrinated school population to shoot light weapons, balloons and rockets into southern Israel, fired from the cover of UNRWA schools, whose slogan remains: “The right of return by force of arms”.

After all, UNRWA pounds into the impressionable minds of young Gaza pupils that Israel’s Western Negev was populated by Arab villages were expelled to ‘temporary” UNRWA refugee camps in Gaza- They have been there ever since, educated by UNRWA schools – now controlled by Hamas – that they possess an inalienable right to take back lands lost during Israel’s war on Independence at the time. Gaza youth have no idea that six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel at its birth in 1948.

After years of Hamas organizing children from UNRWA schools to march on the fences which demarcate the Israel frontier under the slogan of the “right of return by force of arms”, do Israel and the UNRWA donor nations not know what a Hamas is again capable of doing- under the haven of UNRWA schools?

The lack of understanding of Hamas can best be illustrated by the commentary piece authored on July 27 by pundit Yoav Limor in the daily Israel newspaper Israel Hayom –  “IDF Intelligence: Hamas Still Seeks Israel’s Destruction, But Not Immediately”.

Limor quotes a source in intelligence that Hamas motivation for war against Israel can be assuaged by economic assurances as if Hamas can be bought off.
