“UNRWA schools continue to indoctrinate Palestinian children toward antisemitism”

Without providing a shred of evidence that antisemitism and corrupt administrators has been rooted out of an insolvent UN agency , the Canadian taxpayer was voluntold to pay up to $90M to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

Earlier this month the agency, which was put on blast by Al Jazeera in July 2019 for a “dysfunctional” administration engaging in “misconduct, nepotism, retaliation … abuse of authority for personal gain, to suppress legitimate dissent and to otherwise achieve their personal objectives”, ran out of money and could not meet payroll.

For the next three years, “This support will help respond to the rising needs of vulnerable Palestinian refugees in UNRWA’s 5 areas of operation (the West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan) and will also provide emergency life-saving assistance to an estimated 465,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon,” claimed a department statement.

“Canada’s funding will also reinforce UNRWA’s ongoing efforts to uphold UN values and humanitarian principles, including neutrality, within the agency and its operations… Canada exercises enhanced due diligence for all humanitarian and development assistance funding for Palestinians. This work includes ongoing oversight, regular site visits, a systematic screening process and strong anti-terrorism provisions in funding agreements.”

Canada had dropped funding to UNRWA in 2015 due to its well-documented ties to Hamas. Since coming into office, the Trudeau Liberals have already sent more than $110 million Canadian tax dollars to the group.

The Trudeau government, seeking to curry favour with progressive and Islamist radicals, did not address what B’nai Brith Canada calls “abundant evidence that the Palestinian Authority textbooks de-legitimize both Israel’s existence and the very presence of Jews in the country – including the denial of the existence of Jewish holy places there – demonize both Israel and Jews, and advocate violence instead of educating peace and coexistence.”

Bnai Brith CEO Michael Mostyn said, “It’s intolerable that UNRWA schools continue to indoctrinate Palestinian children toward antisemitism and eternal war, rather than peace and acceptance. Canadians deserve to know that their international aid dollars are not supporting terrorism or incitement in any way, shape or form… UNRWA’s core objectives are not conducive to finding equitable solutions for Palestinian ‘refugees’ and its educational efforts help perpetuate a feeling of hatred towards Israel and the Jewish people. This must end.”

Columbia Professor Denies Jews Expelled From Arab Lands 

An Associate Professor of Arab Politics at Columbia University is alleging that Israel’s campaign at the United Nations seeking justice for Jewish refugees exiled from Arab lands is a “ploy.”

Joseph Massad, writing in Middle East Eye, claimed that “Israel’s fabrications about the immigration of Arab Jews to Israel are so outrageous that the country holds a commemoration on 30 November each year.”, as though this is a deception. But to Massad, “This date just happens to coincide with the ethnic cleansing by Zionist gangs of Palestine, which began on 30 November 1947, a day after the UN General Assembly adopted the Partition Plan.”

Massad was attempting to counter a planned UN resolution from Israel’s Ambassador, Gilad Erdan, who informed Secretary-General Antonio Guterres it was intended to require the UN “to hold an annual commemoration for the hundreds of thousands of Jews exiled from Arab countries due to the creation of the State of Israel,” according to a report in Ynet.

“The choice of date seeks to implicate Arab Jews in the conquest of Palestine, when most had no role in it,” insisted the professor, who went on to allege “the history of Arab Jewish emigration to Israel is not one of expulsion by Arab regimes, but rather one of Israeli criminal actions that forced Jews in Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, Egypt and other countries to leave for Israel.” As for the 120,000 Jews “transferred” from Iran, Massad’s view is that “the history of Arab Jewish emigration to Israel is not one of expulsion by Arab regimes, but rather one of Israeli criminal actions that forced Jews in Yemen, Iraq, Morocco, Egypt and other countries to leave for Israel.”

He continued, “All this aside, there is the matter of Israel’s unceasing attempts to equate the financial losses of Arab Jews with those of Palestinian refugees… As for the property of Arab Jews, indeed, they should be fully entitled to it and/or to compensation – not on account of some fabricated expulsion narrative that serves the interests of the Israeli state, but on account of their actual ownership.“    

In 2018 Massad firmly established himself as an antisemite by declaring that “If there should be a definition of anti-Semitism to be adopted by the Labour Party (or any other political party or institution) in Britain today, it should include the condemnation of anti-Semitic and colonial expressions such as: “Israel is the Jewish state,” or “Israel is the state of the Jewish people.”

Earlier this year, Columbia University president Lee Bollinger acknowledged that “With respect to anti-Semitism, there are now assertions by outsiders that Columbia is an “anti-Semitic” institution with systemic bigotry.” The Columbia Spectator has details of at least four antisemitic incidents that occurred on the campus this year before the end of October.

Antisemitic professor engineers disappearance of his Twitter account

A Twitter account of a Professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California campus in Merced was suddenly deactivated last week after questions were asked about a pattern of online behavior that the Anti-Defamation League described as  “repulsive” posts that promoted “Antisemitic tropes.”

According to an investigation by Jweekly, Abbas Ghassemi used “IsraHell” in place of “Israel” and upon the US election vote count putting Joe Biden in the lead said “Surprise, surprise!! The entire system in America is controlled by [the] Zionist. Change of president is just a surface polish, change of veneer. Same trash, different pile!”

Ghassemi tweeted about Zionists and Israel controlling certain components of the United States another eight times between October and December.

Seth Brysk, director of the ADL’s Central Pacific region, told JWeekly that Ghassemi’s actions “appear to violate the social media platform’s rules for directing hate against a group.”

“(They) provide textbook examples of crude, antisemitic canards; mendacious allegations about Jewish power and control, attempts to dehumanize and demonize Jewish people, denial of Jewish peoplehood and the right to self-determination, Holocaust trivialization, insinuations about Jewish greed, and more. It is deeply offensive.” Brysk added.
