United Nations Directly Implicated in October 7th Attacks, U.S. State Dept Freezes Funding

After months of credible accusations, multiple members of the UNRWA, which is a subsidiary of the United Nations, have been directly implicated in the October 7th attacks carried out by Hamas. 

The UNRWA has long existed inside Gaza as an ally to Hamas, whether it be teaching genocidal antisemitism in its schools or turning a blind eye to aid being used for terrorist gains. Shortly after October 7th, at least one UNRWA teacher was shown to have held one of the Israeli hostages in his attic. Now, several other employees of the agency have been exposed.

 

The U.S. State Department immediately moved to freeze funding to the UNRWA. That's a sharp turnaround from the direct defense offered of the UNRWA very recently by the administration.

In response to these latest revelations, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has contacted and demanded the United Nations Secretary-General conduct a swift and thorough investigation of its agency. 

Unfortunately, that's like asking the fox to investigate who stole the hens. As RedState has reported, the UNRWA is an awful organization that directly provides aid and comfort to Hamas. In early December, a spokesman for the UN agency went on CNN and repeatedly deflected when presented with evidence of malfeasance. :snip:

UK latest country to pull funding for UNRWA for group’s links to Oct. 7 Hamas attack

The United Kingdom has joined other nations in halting funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Gaza, known as UNRWA. On Friday, the agency opened an investigation and announced several employees were fired due to their alleged involvement in Hamas’s attack on Israel on Oct. 7. 

“The UK is appalled by allegations that UNRWA staff were involved in the 7 October attack against Israel, a heinous act of terrorism that the UK Government has repeatedly condemned,”  the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in a statement.

Israel accused 12 employees of the UNRWA of participating in Hamas’s attack on Israel, which resulted in at least 1,200 people dead and more than 250 hostages taken. The death toll has surpassed 26,000 Palestinians as of Friday, according to the territory’s Hamas-run health ministry.

United Nations Directly Implicated in October 7th Attacks, U.S. State Dept Freezes Funding

Well Not Really

But in reality that’s not really true. Our tax dollars are still going to fund UNRWA and here’s how we know:

"On Friday, in response to allegations that employees of the UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) had been involved in Hamas’s October 7 terrorist attack on Israel, the State Department announced that it had “temporarily paused additional funding” for the United Nations agency. The funding pause, however, applies only to new and additional funding, not funding already obligated before the pause went into effect on Wednesday, a State Department spokesperson told Pluribus.

When asked for details on what obligations would and would not be affected by the pause, the spokesperson directed Pluribus to a fact sheet released by the State Department on January 16, 2024.

The fact sheet reports that funding already committed or obligated to the UNRWA for fiscal 2024 for work in the West Bank and Gaza totaled $51 million as of January 16. Although the State Department did not directly answer questions about the amounts or the timing involved in distribution of funds, the spokesperson stated that “we are pausing any new or additional funding.  Contributions to UNRWA that were not obligated as of January 24 are suspended, contributions to UNRWA obligated prior to this date remain in effect.”

10% of UNRWA Staffers Tied to Terrorist Groups: Report

January 29, 2024
 

Roughly 10 percent of staffers with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the international body's aid group for Palestinian refugees, have ties to terrorist groups, according to a Monday Wall Street Journal report.

About 1,200 employees, 10 percent of the agency's 12,000 Gazan workers, are linked to Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Journal reported, citing Israeli intelligence reports the Jewish state shared with American officials. The intelligence found that 49 percent of UNRWA staffers had close relatives with official ties to the groups, and 23 percent of male UNRWA employees had ties to Hamas, more than the average rate of 15 percent for the general Gazan male population.

Officials told the Journal that the employees they believed had ties to Hamas were "operatives," meaning they were involved in the terror group's military or political activity.

The intelligence documents, per the paper, were part of a briefing Israeli officials gave to their American counterparts days ago, alleging the participation of 12 UNRWA employees in Hamas's Oct. 7 attacks. The Biden administration suspended aid to the agency following the revelations. UNRWA said it fired those staffers.

The Progressive (ie antisemitic) View

 

Jan 31, 2024 #Gaza #Israel #UNRWA

Robert Inlakesh breaks down the US & Israeli accusations that 12 UNRWA staff were involved in the Hamas led attacks on October 7th following the ICJ ruling that led to Western countries cutting off money from the aid organization. UNRWA is a lifeline for Palestinians in Gaza who are facing a humanitarian crisis due to the Israeli bombings and blockade.

Hamas-Linked UNRWA Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

A socialist lawmaker in the Norwegian Parliament announced on Thursday that he has nominated the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) for consideration of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Åsmund Aukrust, a member of Norway’s Arbeiderpartiet, told Dagbladet that his motivation for making such a selection is because of UNRWA’s “long-term work to provide vital support to Palestine and the region in general.”

The news comes as significant controversy has befallen UNRWA in the aftermath of the October massacre in southern Israel by the Hamas terrorist organization. A recent report by Israeli intelligence officials has determined that as much as 10 percent of the agency’s 12,000 employees in Gaza are members of the terror group, and at least 12 associates directly participated in the horrifying rampage against civilians that followed.:snip:

A small question. How Long Will The Palestinians be  regarded as refugees? I mean is been 67 years since  Israel  took over The West Bank & Gaza.
