"UNRWA dispatched a speaker ... to raise funds for a new UNRWA Holocaust curriculum that UNRWA announced it was about to implement... What became of the UNRWA Holocaust Education Initiative? We asked that of a senior official in the UN who supervises UNRWA. His answer, in writing, was that there was never any plan by UNRWA to implement any Holocaust education initiative.
In other words, UNRWA raised funds for a program that never existed and never would exist. Yet UNRWA used it to improve its image in the Jewish community and in Israel.
Between 2011 and 2016, the Center for Near East Policy Research dispatched experts to conduct a briefing each year for staffers and members of the US Congress about the UNRWA war curriculum.
Since the US donates $400 million of the $1.2 billion UNRWA budget, UNRWA was not happy with these briefings and sent a representative to each of these briefings to passionately state that UNRWA runs no war curriculum in its schools, and that UNRWA was devoid of incitement...
Fearful that the new US Administration will cut the US contribution to UNRWA, UNRWA has suddenly changed its message, sending out messages that it has created a peace education curriculum to eradicate the incitement which UNRWA had been saying for years did not exist.
UNRWA went to the trouble of circulating the precise changes that it intended to implement to overhaul the UNRWA curriculum. The Palestinian Authority, contracted by UNRWA as the exclusive supplier of school books to UNRWA, objected to any changes that UNRWA was reportedly offering.
So there will be no PA UNRWA peace education curriculum.
Yet the international and Israeli media universally reporting today that UNRWA is about to implement a peace education curriculum.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
As with the story of the UNRWA Holocaust Education Initiative which never existed, UNRWA spreads the story of a peace education curriculum – with no basis in reality."
