ZOA Action Alert: Protest UN Palestinian Arab Refugee Agency’s Antisemitic, Pro-Terror School Curriculum

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is devoted exclusively to Palestinian Arab refugees. Unlike the UN High Commissioner for Refugees – the UN body that deals with every other refugee group around the world – UNRWA’s goal, since its creation in 1949, has never been to resettle refugees. Instead, as esteemed journalist Jonathan Tobin recently noted, UNRWA “keeps them in place in refugee camps – now built-up urban neighborhoods – so as to maintain their status as political cudgels with which to beat Israel.”

UNRWA promotes this objective in the schools it runs for Palestinian Arab children, including in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, and the eastern part of Jerusalem. These schools teach children to hate Israel and Jews and they glorify terrorism. UNRWA is generously supported by our tax dollars. In 2021, the U.S. gave $318 million to UNRWA, making the U.S. its largest donor.

 Join us to protest the antisemitic, anti-Israel education provided to Palestinian Arab children in UNRWA-run schools, and U.S. support for UNRWA. 

Two rallies are taking place this Friday, November 19, 2021, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm:

In Washington, DC, at 1875 K Street, N.W.

In New York City, at 775 United Nations Plaza


A UN agency supported by our tax dollars should be promoting peace and tolerance – not Jew-hatred, Israel-hatred, or terrorism.
