After all, UNRWA pounds into the impressionable minds of young Gaza pupils that Israel’s Western Negev was populated by Arab villages were expelled to ‘temporary” UNRWA refugee camps in Gaza- They have been there ever since, educated by UNRWA schools – now controlled by Hamas – that they possess an inalienable right to take back lands lost during Israel’s war on Independence at the time. Gaza youth have no idea that six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel at its birth in 1948.
After years of Hamas organizing children from UNRWA schools to march on the fences which demarcate the Israel frontier under the slogan of the “right of return by force of arms”, Israel and the UNRWA donor nations know exactly Hamas is again capable of doing under- the protective haven of UNRWA schools.
