Israel Resource News Agency, operating as an independent news agency and research center under the Nahum Bedein Center for Near East Policy Research, has been at the forefront of scrutinizing UNRWA’s activities since its establishment in 1987.

Amid ongoing conflict, our agency has uncovered concerning findings regarding UNRWA’s conduct, including the use of its facilities to store weapons and facilitate violence. Despite Canada’s temporary withdrawal of funding from UNRWA between 2011 and 2015 due to these revelations, recent developments have seen Canada resume its role as one of the top funders of UNRWA.

To hold policymakers accountable and ensure responsible use of taxpayer funds, we present a series of questions for Canadian government and parliament:

  1. What measures will be implemented to ensure UNRWA donations are used exclusively for peaceful purposes?
  2. Will there be ongoing monitoring of UNRWA schools to eliminate any content promoting violence or incitement?
  3. Is there a plan to increase transparency regarding the allocation of UNRWA funds, especially cash donations?
  4. Will there be efforts to conduct regular inspections of UNRWA facilities to prevent the storage of lethal weapons and ammunition?
  5. How will UNRWA youth clubs be monitored to prevent involvement in activities promoting violence?

  1. Will there be support for the expulsion of Fatah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad affiliates from UNRWA?
  2. Is there a plan to remove murals depicting violence from UNRWA facilities?
  3. Will there be advocacy for UNRWA summer camps to focus on non-violent programs?
  4. Is there a request for UNRWA maps to accurately represent all members of the UN, including Israel?
  5. Will there be efforts to remove maps from UNRWA materials that rename Israeli communities with Arabic names?

By addressing these questions, donor nations can uphold their commitment to humanitarian aid while ensuring accountability and transparency within UNRWA’s operations.
