As we approach the solemn day of Yom Kippur, a time for reflection and atonement, I find it fitting to express my deep appreciation for the support we have received in our ongoing mission to shed light on the lethal policies of UNRWA (United Nations Relief & Works Agency). Over the years, we have striven to offer a positive alternative for UNRWA policy change, and I must say that this year has seen significant progress in our endeavors. Yet, much work remains ahead.

To kickstart the New Year, we are launching a renewed campaign for UNRWA policy change, an initiative we hold dear. On October 8, at 8 pm Israel time (in English), and on October 9 at 1 pm Israel time (in Hebrew), we will gather at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem to discuss our objectives and strategies.

Our primary goal remains unchanged: we aim to persuade UNRWA donors from around the world to condition their support on one crucial stipulation – that UNRWA must cease its systematic incitement. It is high time that UNRWA’s funds be redirected to aid the descendants of the Arab refugees from 1948, who form the majority within UNRWA, in their quest to leave behind the indignity of refugee camp life, once and for all.

This year marks a significant turning point in our mission, as we collaborate with someone whose family has been directly impacted by the tragic consequences of UNRWA “education.” Rabbi Leo Dee, a courageous advocate for change, lost his beloved wife Lucy and daughters Maia and Rina in a senseless act of violence perpetrated by individuals from the Askar UNRWA camp. Our upcoming documentary will reveal the shocking truth of how UNRWA embraces the murderers of his family, in line with the Palestinian Authority’s law that grants an automatic lifetime salary to anyone who kills a Jew. Furthermore, this law extends financial support to the family of the murderer if they die as martyrs.

In addition to our documentary presentation, the event will feature Dr. Arnon Groiss, a distinguished scholar with 25 years of research into UNRWA education. Dr. Groiss has meticulously reviewed all 1,000 schoolbooks used by UNRWA and will share insights into the current state of UNRWA education.

It is disheartening to note that the media tends to downplay UNRWA’s embrace of those who commit acts of violence against Jews, a fact often unknown to UNRWA donor nations. Our immediate task is to bring this issue to the forefront, highlighting the current state of UNRWA’s policies and offering a compelling alternative – a campaign for an UNRWA PEACE INITIATIVE.
