Last year, UNRWA-USA - the American fundraising arm of UNRWA - started a "UNRWA Alumni" program to get people who grew up in the Middle East, going to UNRWA schools, to proudly say that they are "Palestine refugees."

The video is terrible and hard to understand, but each of the people speaking identify themselves as "Palestine refugees" - and are American citizens.

It just points to the absurdity of UNRWA considering anyone descended from people who lived in Palestine in 1948 to be forever "refugees" and forever eligible for UN benefits. 


Dr. Yassine Daoud is a Palestine refugee now living in Maryland, but more than that, he is a successful medical doctor, caring father, and supportive husband to award-winning Palestinian author and public speaker Laila El-Haddad. As our country discusses who refugees are and what refugees looks like, this family has taken it upon themselves to help reshape that narrative, through participating in charitable events, giving back to their American and Palestinian communities, and sharing their own story. 
There is a further irony in UNRWA using its fake "refugees" as a means to change American attitudes towards real refugees, as can be seen from this other story of a successful UNRWA graduate:
Today, Nada Kiblawi is a successful entrepreneur and businesswoman living in northern Virginia, alongside her husband and three adult children. The now retired founder and co-owner of NHK Consulting, Nada provided engineering services to some of the world’s largest and most reputable companies. 

Born and raised in this camp and in poverty, Nada sadly recalls that she was deprived of a normal, happy childhood. “I’m at a loss of words when I think back upon my childhood years,” she says. “All children born refugees are deprived a childhood. My land, home, and youth, were stolen from me and those of the fourth generation of refugees born into and raised in camps. "
Why is no one pressuring Lebanon to treat their hundreds of thousands of Palestinians like human beings? Why are they still in disgusting camps after for generations? Because UNRWA exists! As Kibwali shows, generations of kids grow up to blame Jews for "stealing" land they have never seen and that many families had not even been there for as long as they have been in Lebanon. But if it wasn't for UNRWA, Lebanon would have been forced to take responsibility for the refugees, the way every other country has to. Because of UNRWA, the issue can be pushed off another few generations, with more kids being taught incitement against Israel and Lebanon, which literally has apartheid laws against Palestinians, is not mentioned by UNRWA or UNRWA-USA.

UNRWA instills this sort of antisemitism and it keeps people of Palestinian ancestry in these terrible conditions by virtue of its very existence.

The propaganda continues with the story of Mohammed Eid:
I grew up in a 200-square-foot house, with five siblings and our parents in Rafah Camp in Gaza. The street was my living room, my study area, and where I played. As a child, I had never seen a baseball field, a swimming pool, or the cinema.
Baseball field in Gaza?? Well, Gaza has some very nice soccer fields. And swimming pools. 




And it used to have cinemas, but Hamas outlawed them.

Now, the question is, why Mohammed Eid, who was an toddler when the Palestinian Authority was created, grew up in a "refugee camp" at all? Israel tried to move Gazans into real houses - but the UN passed resolutions against it and those who tried to take advantage were threatened. Yet under PA and Hamas control, these camps still exist. People who live in their own country under their own rulers are not refugees. Why is Eid's family treated like one?

Because UNRWA exists. Because it has brainwashed generations to say that their homes are in Israel and they cannot live as equal citizens in a Palestinian state next to Israel. 

UNRWA-USA is engaged in a massive propaganda campaign to extend the "refugee" problem forever. And it takes only a little effort to look at the words of their star propagandists to see how this works. 




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.
