  • Elder of Ziyon

UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness was interviewed by Xinhua where he did what he always does: lying, exaggerating and blaming Israel for horrible things the Palestinians do to each other.

 The spokesperson for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees (UNRWA) Christopher Gunness warned the precarious situation of both UNRWA and Gaza Strip.
UNRWA, which is considered the world's oldest humanitarian organization, remains on the edge of its financial predicament with the growing humanitarian crisis in the region that are overshadowing the growing dependency of Palestinian refugees on the services of UNRWA.
The Red Cross is 153 years old, more than twice the age of UNWRA. Not sure if this was Xinhua's mistake or if they parroted Gunness.

"The world may not be paying attention to them, but the situation in Gaza has gotten incrementally worse hour by hour, while that attention has drifted to other parts of the world," he said, warning that "you now have 64 percent unemployment," which is a "record."
 Yes, world. Stop paying attention to Yemen where literally tens of thousands of children are starving to death (as opposed to Gaza, where the number is zero.)  Yemen has five times more people in danger of dying than Gaza has people.

Stop paying attention to Syria, where more Palestinians have been killed than in the Gaza wars - yet where UNRWA's fundraising is far more muted. And, of course, don't even consider any humanitarian crises in sub-Saharan Africa where there are wars and famine. Gaza faces unemployment!

In recent months, it was made public that 95 percent of the water in Gaza is undrinkable and power outages last for long hours every day, which has lead to a series of setbacks in the health, reconstruction and psychological situation of Gazans, among others.
Gunness said despite this dark situation, he sees a ray of hope for Gaza in the Palestinian national unity government that has recently taken over the executive bodies in the coastal enclave, after rival political parties Hamas and Fatah signed a reconciliation deal in Cairo last October, ending a decade of the control of the Islamic Hamas movement on Gaza.
So the PA is the savior of Gaza?

The entire reason that Gaza is having a crisis now, the reason that there is such a shortage of drinking water and sewage treatment,  is because the PA has reduced electricity and medicines there - and those restrictions are still in place!

The very people who have created the current crisis in Gaza are the ones that Gunness is praising. He bases his entire fundraising effort on demonizing Israel. He will not say a single bad thing about Hamas or the PA, not about their infighting and not about their support for terror and their prioritizing buying weapons over helping people in Gaza. Of course he won't talk about how UNRWA itself teaches children about how wonderful it is to sacrifice your life by attacking Jews.

Gunness is a thoroughly despicable man in every respect.

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.
