UNRWA is very proud of their human rights curriculum:
We have been delivering human rights education in our schools since 2000 to promote non-violence, healthy communication skills, peaceful conflict resolution, human rights, tolerance and good citizenship.

In May 2012, the Agency endorsed its new Human Rights, Conflict Resolution and Tolerance (HRCRT) Policy to further stregthen human rights education in UNRWA. This policy builds upon past successes, but also draws from international best practices and paves the way to better integrate human rights education in all our schools.

...In Gaza, we have developed a dedicated human rights curriculum.

Specialists from UNRWA, the Red Cross, human rights NGOs and the wider academic community developed the comprehensive curriculum, anchored in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. All of our over 200,000 students have a dedicated human rights lesson each week.

All children are taught about:

  • Fundamental human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration
  • Their individual responsibilities, including tolerant behaviour
  • The history of the global struggle for human rights
  • The historical context that gave rise to the Universal Declaration.

I reported on Monday that the UNRWA Arabic "human rights" curriculum website includes antisemitic statements.

Other documents on that same site do not reflect any of the self-congratulatory standards that UNRWA boasts about in English.

Here is how another document on that same site describes the history of Zionism:

From the beginning the land of Palestine was the core of the conflict with the Zionist movement that founded the State of Israel. One of the decisions of the First Zionist Congress, which was held in the city of Basel in Switzerland in 1897, was that Palestine is a land without a people, and it is the duty of the Zionists to displace the world's Jews to live in Palestine, and since that day the Zionist movement has been working day and night on the theft of Palestinian land and the resettlement of Jews in our country.

In the catastrophe of 1948, the Jews committed massacres in order to displace the Palestinian people. Most of the Palestinian people migrated from the land of Palestine to become refugees in neighboring countries. Not only that, but the Zionists worked by all means in order to take over the remainder of the land from the hands of the Arabs who remained in their homes through their policy of Judaization of Arab land, and through the development of unjust laws, such as the confiscation of the land of absentee landlords and military reasons for the confiscation and seizure under the pretext of developing the Galilee and other laws.
The Basel program does not resemble how this "history" describes it in the least.

In short, UNRWA is teaching lies. Those lies turn directly into anti-Jewish incitement.

Which is only one way how the UNRWA "human rights" curriculum actually teaches hate.
