Reissue of ​ ​worst text for UNRWA schools, despite calls for change

At a time when publicity of incitement in the the UNRWA schools continues, following official UNRWA incitement hearings in the US Congress, there is a new development at the Palestinian Authority Curriculum Center, which oversees curriculum for the UNRWA

UNRWA, which relies on the PA curriculum, this week republishes a new 2023 edition of the 5th grade civics classroom text dedicated to the legacy of Dalal al-Mughrabi, commander of Arab terrorists who landed in a boat on the beach of Maagan Michael natural reserve on Saturday afternoon, March.11., 1978

Following their landing, the terrorists encountered a nature photographer, Ms. Gail Rubin, an American citizen, the niece of US Senator Abe Ribicoff. and shot her dead. They then proceeded towards Israel’s Coastal Highway, took control over a cab and a bus, and later – over another bus.

They gathered all the passengers in one bus and continued southward towards Tel Aviv, while shooting along their way at other vehicles and also at several passengers inside the bus – according to the survivors’ testimony.

Near the Gelilot crossroad, north of Tel Aviv, the Israeli police managed to stop the bus and shooting started. Some of the terrorists burst out of the bus and shot the policemen, while others shot the passengers inside the bus who tried to escape. The terrorists had rigged the bus and during the fighting detonated the explosives which turned the bus into a fire trap in which the passengers who had not managed to escape perished. 34 Israeli civilians were killed altogether, including 13 children.

9 of the 11 terrorists were killed, including Dalal al-Mughrabi.

Two weeks after the original text was first provided by the PA for UNRWA schools in 2017, I accompanied our staff of translators and analysts to present the book and our comprehensive study of UNRWA incitement to meet with the senior staff of the the recently installed UN secretary general of the UN, António Guterres.

The meeting was facilitated by Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Wiesenthal Center, a recognized NGO at the UN.

The response of the UN secretary general staff was immediate.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres contacted UNRWA in Jerusalem and asked for the removal of the textbook which glorifies Dalal al-Mughrabi.

Except that the text was never removed.

The only difference is that the new publication date is 2023:

A message that UNRWA will not budge.

On the day of the book’s republication, our news and research agency appeared at the PA – UNRWA curriculum center and purchased 100 copies.

The idea is to provide the UN text book with the picture of a murderer to every possible decision maker. Seeing is believing
