You, dear Arutz Sheva reader, can make a difference if you send this letter or a version of it, to the ten major donors to UNRWA. Information about those countries’ representatives is below, following the letter.

Dear Ambassador…

It is a foregone conclusion that the UN General Assembly will renew the UNRWA mandate this week, which will once again confine descendants of Arab refugees from the 1948 war to yet another three years of “temporary” refugee perpetuity.

The question remains: Will UNRWA donor nations insist on reasonable conditions for the UNRWA mandate renewal?

We are asking you, as a representative in the General Assembly of one of the ten donor nations which contribute the most money to UNRWA, to ensure conditions are imposed on UNRWA’s operations.

Here are several conditions we recommend:

1. Cancel the new UNRWA curriculum 

The new curriculum incorporates principles of Jihad, martyrdom and “right of return” by force of arms, in UN schools which are supposed to promote the UNRWA slogan of “Peace Starts Here.”  The path to peace begins in the classroom – but not in these classrooms where Palestinian children are taught that they must fight Israel to control all the land from the Jordan River to the sea.

And in that proposed scenario, what is to become of the Jews?  Please watch the movie at this link: as children declare that all the Jews currently living in the state of Israel will be eliminated..

2. Cease paramilitary training in all UNRWA schools

UNRWA should demonstrate commitment to UN principles for “peace education”; the training of child soldiers is in flagrant violation of UN principles and international law.

3. Insist that UNRWA dismiss employees affiliated with Hamas.

In accordance with laws on the books in many Western nations, it is forbidden to provide aid to any agency that employs members of a terrorist organization.

4. Demand fiscal transparency– all donor funds that flow to UNRWA should be audited.  Since the UN itself does not provide any funds, there is no internal audit going on.

This would address widespread documented reports of wasted resources, duplication of services and the undesired flow of cash to Gaza-based terror groups, which have gained control over UNRWA operations in Gaza over the past 18 years.

5. Introduce UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) standards to UNRWA

This move will serve to advance the resettlement of Arab refugees, after 67 years of stagnation and suffering. Current UNRWA policy is that refugee resettlement would interfere with the “right of return” to Arab villages that existed before 1948 and so no real attempt is made at resettlement.

Further, according to UNRWA, refugee status is inherited and therefore Palestinian refugees now number about five million.  The UNHCR, the one refugee agencey dealing with al the millions of refugees in the world except for Palestinian Arabs, does not endorse inherited status so all other refugees in the world are resettled with relative efficiency.

It is essential that such conditions be introduced in UNRWA’s ongoing operations, so that the next generation is not trained to revere violence, Jihad and martyrdom…all in the name of the “right of return” to villages which existed before 1948. Only then can efforts to negotiate peace stand a chance.

In that context, Bedein authored Roadblock to Peace: How the UN Perpetuates the Arab-Israeli Conflict - UNRWA Policies Reconsidered, which caps Bedein's 28 years of investigations of UNRWA. 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. Bedein and his team of experts provide timely briefings to members to legislative bodies world wide, bringing the results of his investigations to donor nations, while demanding reforms based on transparency, refugee resettlement and the demand that terrorists be removed from the UNRWA schools and UNRWA payroll.   Bedein's work can be found at: and A new site,, will be launched very soon.
