Over 100 teachers and staff of schools run by UNRWA have been explicitly and publicly promoting hateful content, particularly against Jews and Israelis, including celebrating deaths, according to a new report by the NGO UN Watch. UNRWA, which operates several schools for Palestinians, is now coming under fire for the comments made by its educators and staff. As documented in a UN Watch report titled "Beyond the Textbooks," multiple cases are outlined showing instances of incitement. This, the report claims, flies in the face of UNRWA's own rules and values, specifically a zero-tolerance rule for racism, discrimination and antisemitism.

A total of 113 instances were obtained by UN Watch solely from viewing the public social media pages of UNWRA employees, many of which celebrated and promoted violence, even among children. The Geneva-based NGO added that it only analyzed those who publicly identified as UNWRA employees, and estimated that the actual number of staff who incite violence may number far higher.

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) on Tuesday called on Canada to suspend its funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and hold the agency to account after a report revealed that more than 100 of its educators and staff have publicly promoted anti-Semitism and violence on social media, and that on numerous occasions the agency has failed to dismiss teachers who incited such hate.

The report from UN Watch, which examined Facebook users who publicly identified themselves as UNRWA employees, details the posts of numerous employees – including a math teacher who posted a video of Adolf Hitler, depicting him as an inspirational philosopher, and a quote promoting an antisemitic conspiracy theory; a teacher in the West Bank who accused Jews of controlling the world, creating the coronavirus and seeking to destroy Islam; and a school principal and teacher who shared a map, entitled “The Map of Arab Palestine,” which erases Israel.

Several UNRWA employees glorified massacres of Israeli Jews, celebrated convicted terrorists and rejected Israel’s right to exist.
