According to a report by a non-government organisation (NGO), teachers working with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) have continued to publish posts on social media containing inflammatory remarks about Jews, despite making a commitment not to do so.
One prominent example is Hana’a Daoud, a teacher based in Jordan, who wrote a post which quoted an inflammatory passage from the Koran quoted in the Hamas Charter, which says: “‘The Last Hour will not come until the Muslims fight against the Jews, until a Jew will hide himself behind a stone or a tree, and the stone or the tree will say: O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him’. This is what Allah has promised us, and victory is ours, and Jerusalem is ours, and Gaza is ours.”
Another example is the computer teacher, Nihaya Awad, who at one point posted an image of an armed member of the genocidal antisemitic terror group, Hamas, standing next to a child. This was accompanied by a text praising Hamas, which said: “We testify by Allah that you have demonstrated your faithfulness…and conveyed the message…and have won for your Al-Aqsa…and have broken your enemy’s nose…and have rekindled hope in your faith…may Allah accept your obedience…and raise your matter.”
The Director of the NGO, United Nations Watch, the UN watchdog that authored the report, said: “Around the world, educators who incite hate and violence are removed. Yet UNRWA, despite proclaiming ‘zero tolerance’ for incitement, systematically employs preachers of anti-Jewish hate and terrorism. We call on the governments that fund UNRWA, as they gather at the United Nations to announce new pledges, to declare that they will stop enabling a system that teaches new generations of Palestinians to hate and murder Jews.”
