One of our most extensive areas of journalistic research has involved investigations of Palestinian Authority /UNRWA education.
We engaged Israeli and Arab journalists to film PA/UNRWA schools, acquire and translate all new PA/UNRWA school books, and investigate the terror involvement in UNRWA facilities.
Over the years, we brought these investigations to attention of Middle East subcommittees both houses of Congress, resulting in an official GAO study of PA/UNRWA education.
GAO findings released after delay of a full year, confirm that the PA has provided UNRWA a war curriculum for 515,000 UNRWA students….making the possibility of any kind of peace process seem utterly absurd.
Take a look at that GAO study:
We had translated and examined all PA school books used by UNRWA once the new PA curriculum was launched on August 1, 2000.
The idea of an independent curriculum which would be generated by the nascent Palestinian Authority was seen as the panacea of the peace process.
While the new PA curriculum was characterized by incitement, the last two years have witnessed a deterioration into war indoctrination, as documented by the studies provided to the US Congress by our professionals, which has now been independently confirmed by the GAO, as commissioned under the authority vested in the GAO by Senator James Risch, chair of the Near East Subcommittee. who insisted on independent verification of the findings of CFNEPR.
Now thanks to the GAO disclosure of its study of PA/UNRWA education, the public can gain better understand where the problem lies.
