Gershon Baskin, writing in the Jerusalem Post, has issued a call to build Gaza.

However, UNRWA will not let Baskin build Gaza.

70% of the Arabs who live in Gaza live in UNRWA facilities. UNRWA defines them as refugees, 66 years after the 19​48 war,

UNRWA educates its clients NOT to build permanent homes in Gaza, and NOT to view their future in Gaza.

Instead, UNRWA educates ​its clients to prepare to return to villages that they left in 1948, now located in the Western Negev, Ashkelon, Ashdod, BeerSheva, and Jaffa.

Baskin needs to learn recent history.

UNRWA has actively interfered with every effort to help “build Gaza”, for 65 years.

The Center for Near East Policy Research has been instrumental in reaching elected officials, decision makers and journalists, commissioning studies, reports, news stories and films. In 2009, the center began decided to produce short movies, in addition to monographs, to film every aspect of UNRWA education in a clear and cogent fashion.   The center has so far produced seven short documentary pieces n UNRWA which have received international acclaim and recognition, showing how which UNRWA promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence in their education'   In sum, Bedein has pioneered The UNRWA Reform Initiative, a strategy which calls for donor nations to insist on reasonable reforms of UNRWA. Bedein and his team of experts provide timely briefings to members to legislative bodies world wide, bringing the results of his investigations to donor nations, while demanding reforms based on transparency, refugee resettlement and the demand that terrorists be removed from the UNRWA schools and UNRWA payroll.   Bedein's work can be found at: www.IsraelBehindTheNews.com and www.cfnepr.com.
