In the midst of the ongoing conflict, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has emerged not only as a provider of humanitarian aid but also as a contentious element fueling violence. Investigative reporter David Bedein has been shedding light on UNRWA’s role as a host for Arab terrorism since 1987, offering a crucial perspective on its implications for regional stability.

Dr. Eli Lasch, former head of medical services in Gaza, warned of an imminent eruption of violence within UNRWA refugee camps back in 1987. Lasch, having observed the aftermath of the PLO’s influence within UNRWA camps in Jordan and Lebanon, underscored the organization’s reluctance to invest in improvements, leaving the refugees in a state of stagnation.



  1. UNRWA and the IN should be exposed and branded as the antisemitic entities they are . They magnified and perpetuated a problem that should have been solved by 1950 given an equivalent population swap even after the rush of Arabs into Israel in 1946-1948.
