UNRWA: Barrier to Peace

| May 27, 2008

UNRWA perpetuates the Palestinian refugee issue, serving as a major obstacle toward resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. UNRWA’s definition of refugees includes not only the refugees themselves, but also their descendants. It also employs teachers affiliated with Hamas and allows the dissemination of Hamas messages in its schools. UNRWA should be dissolved, with its services transferred to more appropriate welfare organizations.
