  • Elder of Ziyon
The new Palestinian Authority curriculum, which is used by UNRWA, has been reviewed by IMPACT-SE. The group finds that the books being used by the PA and UNWRA include encouraging kids to become "martyrs:"

Palestinian children learn that they are part of a long history of martyrs.
And the thousands of righteous and martyrs who have beautified her pure soil with their
innocent blood and who have given her their pure souls. And they defend her from
passing invaders and oppressive tyrants . . .
Arabic Language, Grade 10, Vol. 1, 2017, p. 18.
Children are encouraged to offer their blood, described in Tawfiq Zayyad's poem, "Remaining":
And [our] pure blood, we will not spare, will not spare, will not spare
Here we have a past, a present and a future.
Arabic Language, Grade 10, Vol. 1, 2017, p. 133.
The following is an excerpt from "Don't Tell My Mother!" by Muhammad Barash. The title
suggests that children not obey parents' warnings when called to be martyrs:
And the last scene I saw before I found myself unconscious was that of a child who came
running toward me, carrying a flag, shouting: martyr, martyr [shahid, shahid]!
Arabic Reading, Literature and Criticism, Grade 11, Vol. 1, 2017, p. 19. 
I am a Muslim; I sacrifice for the liberation of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Islamic Education, Grade 5, Vol. 1, 2017, p. 56.  
The textbooks demonize Israel, refers to Zionists in the 1940s as "occupiers," make child-killer Dalal Mughrabi into a hero. There are dozens of examples of religious indoctrination, flse history, erasing Israel and encouraging students to fight against "Jewish occupiers" who clearly include every Jew in "Palestine" since the textbooks do not distinguish between Israel and the territories.

So it is telling that the EU has just decided that, to encourage the PA to unify with Hamas in Gaza, they will increase their funding to UNRWA by €10.5 million:

Following the agreement signed in Cairo on 12 October and the handover of Gaza crossings to the Palestinian Authority on 1 November, the European Union reaffirms its readiness to mobilise its full support to current efforts to reunite Gaza and the West Bank under one single and legitimate Palestinian Authority. While the agreement and the handover were important and welcome steps in this regard, they need to be followed up by further steps to enable the Palestinian Authority to resume its full responsibilities in Gaza and achieve intra-Palestinian reconciliation.
We are having consultations internally, with key international partners, as well as within the Quartet, on how best to help this process to succeed. How to grant targeted support to Gaza, in particular to the citizens, is part of these consultations. In light of special circumstances and needs, the EU has decided to exceptionally increase its annual contribution to UNRWA by another EUR 10.5 million. A considerable part of this funding is dedicated to Palestine refugees in Gaza, in particular for health and education.
So, yes, the EU is funding hate.
