The JPost reported in the above article on May 23, 2019 that the German representative told the UN Security Council that he wanted to know why the US was not concerned by the possibility of Hamas-led schools replacing UNRWA schools in Gaza.

Does the German government not know that Hamas took over the UNRWA teachers union in Gaza in 2003, and that the UNRWA schools are openly run by Hamas, as the Center for Near East Policy Research has documented and filmed for the past 16 years.

Does the German government not know that the UNRWA teachers union in GAza held elections on April 24, 2019, and that the Hamas tightened its control even further over the UNRWA school system in Gaza

We should not be surprised. Two months ago, we asked the German government about how they view the transparency of German charitable funds to UNRWA. The answer from Germany was that they rely on UNRWA.
