Israel slams Biden's resumption of UNRWA funding for Palestinians
US President Joe Biden had promised during his campaign for the presidency that he would resume such funding, but has yet to make good on his pledge.

Israel warned the Biden administration that its decision Wednesday to restore funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA ) would only help perpetuate the conflict. "Israel's position is that the organization in its current form perpetuates the conflict and does not contribute to its resolution. The renewal of UNRWA assistance, therefore, must be accompanied by substantial and necessary changes in the nature, goals and conduct of the organization," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

It added that US President Joe Biden's decision to reverse his predecessor Donald Trump's 2018 policy decision to halt funding to UNRWA had been come up in conversation between Israeli and American officials. Israel's Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan said he had also warned the State Department of the danger of such activity, particularly without ensuring that "incitement" and "antisemitic content" are removed from its educational curriculum. “Israel is strongly opposed to the anti-Israel and antisemitic activity happening in UNRWA’s facilities," Erdan said. "We believe that this U.N. agency for so-called “refugees” should not exist in its current format. UNRWA schools regularly use materials that incite against Israel and the twisted definition used by the agency to determine who is a “refugee” only perpetuates the conflict.
