Elizabeth Campbell directs the UNRWA lobby in Washington, D.C.

Prior to joining forces with UNRWA, Campbell acted as the “humanitarian policy adviser” in the Bureau of International Organization Affairs in the Department of State, where she worked on refugee and humanitarian issues in the United Nations system

Most recently, The GAO issued a scathing report blasting US State department officials who provided false reports on UNRWA for the US Congress.


Campbell, indeed, wrote a misleading and inaccurate description of UNRWA in her letter to the editor of the New York Times of April 5, when she asserts that UNRWA operates on” principles of “neutrality, impartiality, independence and humanity”


Having commissioned thorough examination and translation of all Palestinian school books used by UNRWA since 2000 by journalist Dr. Arnon Groiss, a 42 year veteran of the Arabic language division of Israel Radio, holding a PHD in Islamic Studies from Princeton, we discern that UNRWA education for 321,000 UNRWA pupils is based on deligitimization and demonization of Israel, along with indoctrination to liberate all of Palestine, by force of arms, while featuring killers of Jews as role models for the children.

If anyone were to deny this description of UNRWA education, we post precise descriptions, pictures and reports from the all 364 UNRWA school books at: www.israelBehindTheNews.com

Meanwhile, Hamas has been running the teachers association and workers union of UNRWA in Gaza for the past 20 years: A far cry from the required neutrality of UN employees.

In short, UNRWA contradicts the peaceful mission of the UN.

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.
