Here is a propaganda video from a UNRWA that was posted this week:
It shows a teenager, Waed Abu Rajab, describing how difficult it is for him to get from his house to his UNRWA school in Hebron.
As he describes his ordeal, the camera follows him going to school.
He describes how he is often stopped at two separate checkpoints. The video shows him walking right through them.
He describes how it can take him a half hour to go to school. No delays are seen.
He says that the guards always ask him intrusive questions, like where he is going. No one asked him anything.
He says he is scared. He doesn't look scared at all.
He says that if the soldiers don't harass him, settlers will. No settlers are visible in the video.
He says that sometimes the soldiers shoot tear gas for no reason, and they don't mind because they always wear gas masks. None of the Israeli security forces there are wearing gas masks.
Not a single claim of his is corroborated by the video, and most of them are contradicted.
Of course, the video doesn't mention that the reason the checkpoints are there is because people who are Waed's age were stabbing every Jew they could find in Hebron only a few months ago..
No, that doesn't fit UNRWA's propaganda story.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
