Canada funds UNRWA which indoctrinates kids with antisemitism
The Canadian government must acknowledge the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) supports, encourages and creates potential terrorists by virtue of its anti-Israel, terror glorifying, antisemitic curriculum. Evidence of this was presented by the Bedein Center for Near East Policy Research to officials of the US Congress in a webinar on March 17th, and accessible here.
What are the Anti-Zionists Defending?
Cartoon by Yaakov Kirschen
The above depicts the lovely cooperative relationship between two “peace loving” Arab powers who garnish sympathy and support from European governments, leftist NGO’s, unwitting peaceniks, the EU, UN, Islamist radicals and a host of other antisemites. Have a look at a few lovely models of the immoral behavior of the Palestinian Authority as documented by Palestinian Media Watch. Below are examples of the Palestinian Authority’s policies and practices which should be condemned.
On International Women’s Day:
PA’s role models for women include terrorist murderer of 37 Dalal Mughrabi, MP Jarrar, a member of the PFLP terror organization who spent time in jail for inciting to terror, and District Governor Ghannam who as policy glorifies terrorists
PA TV News highlights 4 women as “role models of honorable and fighting women”: A poet and a photographer together with terrorist murderer Dalal Mughrabi and terrorist Fatima Barnawi who placed a bomb in a movie theater
Women’s rights activists criticize the PA, pointing out that “only on International Women’s Day” do organizations and institutions talk about women’s affairs, but they take no real action
Palestinian Feminist leader Nadia Abu Nahleh: “Women’s affairs are still at the bottom of the political administration’s list of priorities”
PA Minister of Women’s Affairs: 24% of Palestinian women receive less than minimum wage from Palestinian employers
Election Highlights in the Arab Sector of the Disputed Territories:
Ahead of PA elections, terror organization PFLP emphasizes its goal to destroy Israel, confirming violence and terror is “foremost” means of struggle:
“[PFLP emphasized] its firm opposition to recognizing the racist Zionist entity, and its determination to continue with all forms of the struggle, and foremost among them armed resistance, in order to liberate every grain of the soil of Palestine.”
Abbas kicks out member of Fatah Central Committee for announcing he will run in elections on separate list from Fatah.
In advance of the PA elections, Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub has announced that Fatah urges “all the national activity factions” to run together on a joint list. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 28, 2021] Rajoub’s statement came after the terror organization PFLP announced its election platform, which included rejection of Israel’s right to exist and a reiteration of PFLP’s long term goal to seek Israel’s destruction using violence and terror.
Reward for Terrorism:
Having now almost completed 10 years in prison, the salary the Palestinian Authority pays to the murderers of the Fogel family is set to rise by 50%, from 4,000 shekels ($1,203) per month to 6,000 ($1,806) per month.
On March 11, 2011, two Palestinian teenagers, aged 17 and 19, brutally murdered Ruti and Udi Fogel and three of their children, Yoav, Elad and baby Hadas.
As part of its “Pay-for-Slay” terror reward policy, the PA has been paying the murderers of the Fogel family a monthly salary since the day they were arrested. As part of this policy, to date, the PA has already paid each one of the murderers 338,400 shekels ($101,847).
The PA’s Influence on the International Criminal Court’s Bias:
Theoretically, the ICC investigation of the “situation in Palestine” is meant to examine the claims that all sides, including Palestinians, have allegedly committed crimes covered by the Rome Statute. Crimes committed by the PA officials would potentially include the incitement to murder Israelis and the PA policy of paying financial rewards to terrorists and their families.
The potential crimes of other Palestinian terrorist groups, such as Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine would include inciting and conducting systematic attacks on Israel’s civilian population, including murder, and indiscriminately firing rockets at Israel’s civilian population.
While these actions clearly give rise to concrete suspicions, the PA Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Malki has exposed that the PA and the Prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, have been in constant contact and that Bensouda even gave the PA advance notice of her decision to formally open an investigation, but asked that the PA ”keep it secret”. Al-Malki also explained that PA representatives intend to meet with the Prosecutor in the near future.

Confronting Anti-Zionist Israeli NGO’s
Foreign Funding of Israeli NGO’s, duplicitous relations emanating from European countries, and disreputable behavior by Israeli academics, all contribute to AntiZionist propaganda and endangering Jewish lives. There can be no sensible reason for the lies created by some Jewish and non-Jewish NGOs operating in Israel, except they are well funded and sustain funding by sustaining hostility towards Israel. These NGOs have built their reputation on fictions. European countries which spout platitudes about “never again,” dishonor the memories of the Holocaust and its victims with their pernicious antisemitism, exhibited in their being major contributors to the antiZionist NGOs listed by Matan Peleg, CEO of Im Tirtzu, in his webinar for CAEF on March 18th. Canadian individuals and NGOs which add funding are also culpable.
Is it Time for a New Zionist Congress?
A group of young American Jews have decided enough is enough. Here is the descriptive intro to an article published in Tablet Magazine this week by Blake Flayton.
“Defiant Jewish undergraduates are forming their own national organization dedicated to combating anti-Semitism and promoting Jewish pride. Join us.”
Here is an excerpt from the article which in its fullness describes the current reality of campus life and often the community environment where people are expected to park their Judaism at the door, denounce Zionism, condemn Israel for deeds never committed and stand for social justice for everyone but Jew.
Flayton states this antidote to the antisemitism virus: “We seek to inspire Jewish young people, with education and advocacy, to build pride in their Zionism, to nurture their passion for self-determination, and to rebel against the forces that tell us these things must be traded away for a false sense of safety.”
Parents and Grandparents must help and encourage their children to be informed, and help them decide on how they wish to get involved. Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights has worked to bring truth to light about Jewish rights in the land based on history, law, and morality in an easy to read book entitled The Jewish Rights to the Land of Israel.
CAEF urges the imperative to teach Jewish history to our children, and instil Jewish pride. CAEF is proud to announce that on April 1st we will host a webinar with Ben Freeman, author of Jewish Pride, Rebuilding a People. Watch for the notice.
