UN Watch names UNRWA employees inciting hatred

Palestinian employees of the UN agency UNRWA are inciting Palestinians to commit terror attacks against Israelis from social media accounts on which they are explicitly identified as workers of the United Nations, according to a report by UN Watch published today.

Hillel Neuer, head of the NGO which monitors the UN and its agencies, says the report was submitted to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, to UNRWA chief Pierre Krähenbühl and to US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power. The US, according to UN Watch is the largest funder of UNRWA with $400 million annually.

In the report, Neuer names nine UNRWA employees and brings screenshots of jingoistic, inciting posts from their Facebook pages that call for the murder of Jews or at other times push conspiracy theories according to which terrorists killed by Israeli security forces were innocent.
