Following is one of the 40 perpetrators identified in UN Watch’s 130-page report entitled “Poisoning Palestinian Children: A Report on UNRWA Teachers’ Incitement to Jihadist Terrorism & Antisemitism.”
Omar Asaad, who identifies himself on his Facebook profile as an UNRWA employee, features on his public Facebook page a picture of Hitler, with this caption: “I could have killed all the world’s Jews, but I left some so that the world would know why I killed them.”
This post prompted an UNRWA community discussion on Facebook about Hitler and his Nazi genocide against the Jews, with UNRWA school principal Ahmad Nasser commenting that God “should not have left any of them.”
The hateful, racist discussion among multiple UNRWA employees—including a senior UNRWA education official—is evidence of a system-wide UNRWA culture of tolerating antisemitism, and the lack of any meaningful disciplinary action by UNRWA.
Mr. Assad’s antisemitic posts, and those added by his UNRWA colleagues, grossly violate UNRWA employees’ duty to reject racism in all its forms.
