Why won’t the U.S. government release the whole truth about Palestinian textbooks’ rampant incitement, martyr worship, and refusal to accept Israel’s existence?
The think tank that I run, the Center for Near East Policy Research, has completed a four-year research activity, in which all 364 school books for grades 1-12 that were published by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and used in UNRWA schools, in the years 2013-2018 were examined.
We presented our findings at the US Congress, Canadian Parliament, the Swedish Parliament, the British Parliament and, most recently, at the UN.
As a result, U.S. Sen. James Risch (R-IDAHO), chairman of the US Senate Near East Subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, asked the GAO (Government Accountability Office) to conduct an investigation of Palestinian Authority school books now used by UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.
Until recently, the US was the largest funder of UNRWA, donating 30% of the $1.2 billion UNRWA budget.
54% of the UNRWA budget is allocated to UNRWA education.
The GAO completed its comprehensive report on UNRWA education.
