Long have the Israeli's claimed that Hamas had been using targets Israel would not want to hit to store it's weapons. That was recently confirmed by UNRWA.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) disclosed Thursday in a statement that they have located a cache of twenty rockets in a school operated by the agency.
The weapons were found "in the course of the regular inspection of its premise," the statement detailed, "in a vacant school." The UNRWA strongly condemned "the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations." The school in the incident was vacant, the statement said.http://www.i24news.tv/en/news/israel/diplomacy-defense/37479-140717-unrwa-rockets-cache-found-in-agency-gaza-school
The Israeli's were right the whole time. UNRWA had to apologize to Israel.
Which brings us back to UNRWA.
Led by the United States, the founders of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the institution tasked with oversight of the Palestine refugees, conceived of it as a temporary instrument to help relieve the plight of the Arab refugees displaced by the struggle over Israel's creation in 1948-49. But over the ensuing sixty-three years, UNRWA has evolved into an agency that perpetuates the refugee problem as a source of conflict rather than contributing to its resolution. Its refugee camps and educational programs keep alive the impossible dream that millions of descendants of the original refugees will "return" to today's Israel. Its social service delivery programs create permanent dependency and impede local integration into the societies and countries where its beneficiaries have resided for decades. Unlike its sister agency, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), which is responsible for millions of non-Palestinian refugees worldwide, it does not have an active program for "local integration" of refugees where they now reside nor "resettlement" in third countries.UNRWA basically stops Palestinians from normalizing back with Israeli's.
From their own website, it starts with education.
On of our main aims, based on our commitment to Palestine refugees’ human development, is to help children and youth gain appropriate knowledge and skills by providing universal primary education. High-quality basic education provides young Palestine refugees with an understanding of their place in the world and a common set of key values, including dignity, tolerance, cultural identity, gender equality and human rights, and helps them develop the skills to thrive as adults in an evolving, challenging landscape.It's the first goal listed and first picture on their website, see for yourself.
Somehow, this organization has completely lost the plot.
Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), chairman of the House subcommittee on Human Rights and co-chairman of the Bi-Partisan Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism, told CNSNews.com that U.S. donations to the United Nations Refugee and Works Agency (UNRWA) make the federal government accountable for what is in the books.
We are responsible for the content and the content has been, year in and year out, explosively anti-Semitic, anti-American and anti-Israeli,” Smith said, at the event he hosted with the Center for Near-East Policy Research, which is based in Jerusalem and which has studied the topic extensively .

Thanks to Google translate, you can read the curriculum for yourself.
One of the main studies is, surprise, Islamic studies! Much like peace studies, it's not really about studying Islam.
One should note that UNRWA is still opposed by HAMAS. HAMAS didn't see UNRWA as radical enough. In response to UNRWA trying to teach about the Holocaust, HAMAS rejected it, saying :
"UNRWA students do not need to learn about the Holocaust, as much as they need to be taught about their history and geography, the statement added, stressing on “the students’ right to know about the massacres committed by the Zionist enemy against the Palestinian people since the Nakba until now" - Hamas Office for Refugee Affairs
Hamas willing glosses over the millions who died in the Holocaust, not just Jews, but Gypsies, Protestants, Catholics, Atheists and others who refused to believe in the Secular Religion of the Nazi regime.
Goebbels created the Nazi secular religion. We never should forget it.
Some of these vacuous pseudo-historians, like Jonathon Turley, suggest :
"The Nazi illusion has appeared in past attacks on secularists despite Hitler’s repeated emphasis on faith."
No. Hitler emphasized faith, that is true, but it was a secular faith put together by Goebbels. A faith that could replace current "organized religions." Hitler was not really Catholic at all.
This is often what is given as proof that Hitler was a religious Catholic.
What Hitler was saying is that secular schools were inadequate because they taught no higher moral instruction. The morality it would teach would be built "on air." What Hitler needed was believers. People with character. People who believed strongly enough in something to die for it. And it started with children and schools. Call Hitler the worst genocidal megalomaniac of all time, which he was, but he didn't get to the head of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, and almost take over the World, without some brains.
Hitler thought of Christianity as a scourge! To be wiped out!
To forget the history, is to forget how secular religion, the Religion Hitler promoted, finds it'self at the opposite end of the spectrum from Christianity.
Such is the disrespect against Christians, let alone everyone else who died in the Holocaust or fighting the Nazis.
Perhaps the reason for this is the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who at the time, was a supporter of Hitler and the final solution.
I'm sure many people, knowing that, would want to know more. Learning that might make one question why he was so involved. And that's what is the heart of the vast effort to change the narrative, question if it happened, degrade it, or not teach it all.
