UNRWA Elects Hamas

 

Really?  There can’t possibly be a problem coming up here over the horizon.

Palestinians employed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the U.N.‘s  main aid arm in Gaza, elected candidates affiliated with the terror group Hamas to 25 out of 27 seats on a union board that represents ten thousand UNRWA workers.

The development brings fresh criticism to the much-maligned U.N. agency, which oversees aid to Palestinians designated as refugees in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, and has been accused by members of Congress of having ties to regional terror groups that engage in anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activities.

“For the moment, Hamas and UNRWA seem to have an agreement that UNRWA may continue to function in Gaza so long as it does not engage in actions that significantly contradict Hamas’ world view,” one former senior UNRWA official, talking on the condition of anonymity, told Fox News. He added that the “dominance” of Hamas in the union was not a recent event, and that the terror organization had been winning the UNRWA Gaza staff union elections for a number of years.
