Yerushalayim Mayor Nir Barkat: UNRWA Is Causing Terrorism


Yerushalayim mayor Nir Barkat on Wednesday participated in a special session of the Knesset Internal Affairs Committee regarding the removal of UNRWA from Yerushalayim.

UNRWA is the United Nations (UN) agency for “Palestinian refugees.” The organization has faced criticism for its employment of members of the Hamas terrorist organization and for the incitement and anti-Semitism which is taught in UNRWA-run schools.

“UNRWA is strengthening terrorism,” Barkat said in the discussion. “I present here a textbook used in their schools, which praises terrorist Dalal Mughrabi of the ‘blood bus’ in Herzliya. [In that attack,] 38 civilians were murdered.”

“This is what the children of Yerushalayim are taught under their watch. Terrorism. And that must be stopped.

  1. Good morning. About time you realized that the US is causing terrorism. Didn’t you see it when they stored rockets for Hamas in their UN schools and hospitals?

  2. These facts have been unchanged since (before) Barkat took office, but he’s only commenting on them now, when he’s one foot out the door. He’s leaving the dirty work to his successor, who will have to actually d o something about it, or face flak (and worse) from whichever side he does NOT favor. Very smart political move, but cynical is a nice way to put it.
