Think Your Kids' Schools Are Bad? UN-Run Schools Are Teaching Kids to Fight for ISIS
Kids as young as seven are calling for the killing of Jews and are pledging their allegiance to ISIS in schools run by the UN. The documentary “The UNRWA Road to Terror: Palestinian Classroom Incitement," shows a clip of a Palestinian child who is a 13-year-old student at one of the schools run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency chanting “With Allah’s help I will fight for ISIS, the Islamic State.”
Congress is currently looking into bills before it adjourns for the summer that could halt funding for these schools. The U.S. provided $390 million to aid to UNRWA in 2015 alone.
Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., thinks there should be reforms for these schools saying, “It is a crime against humanity, an outrage, and does not in any way prepare the Palestinian population or future generations of Palestinians for peace with Israelis. It is unacceptable that the international community, including the United States, is funding UNRWA without demanding change.”
The documentary shows children from several schools expressing their hatred for Jews and their willingness to join and support ISIS. A 7-year-old girl is filmed saying, "We have to make war to prove we are stronger than the Jews."
Another child who is 13 says, "Right now I am prepared to be a suicide bomber." The film's producer, David Bedein, has been researching UNRWA for close to 30 years. Bedein claims there are some discrepancies regarding how the U.S. has handled this issue saying, “The U.S. government sponsored the peace process, yet the same U.S. government undermines any hope of peace by funding problematic UN schools."
