US Should Redirect Funding Away From UNRWA

    The U.S. should follow Canada’s lead on redirecting funds away from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which provides food, jobs and education in the Palestinian territories, Heather Robinson of the Huffington Post writes. The U.N. agency, according to Robinson, has been using textbooks that promote propaganda denying Israel’s right to exist and lack concrete perspective espousing nonviolent conflict resolution. The same books are being used in Palestinian schools run by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.
