This week, UNRWA in Gaza (and maybe elsewhere) demanded that employees sign a Code of Conduct. It was several ages long. One section said:

UNRWA views gender equality in accordance with the views of the United Nations and as a result describes gender equality as including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender colleagues (UNRWA employees) and beneficiaries (service recipients - the refugee population).
It simply says that UNRWA employees must treat all people equally and with respect, in accordance to UN policies.

The reaction in Gaza was, predictably, fierce. And every single organization that commented argued that UNRWA should discriminate against gays. 

The Joint Committee for Refugees in the Gaza Strip issued a statement saying, “This code violates the moral system of our Palestinian people.... blatantly violates the feelings of refugees and employees, calls for vice, and disdains all the customs, traditions, struggle, and history of our Palestinian people, and is in violation of to the laws of the host country....So-called gay rights are completely rejected and have no place in our Palestinian society, and the claim that they are among human rights are false claims."

The Joint Committee of the Employees’ Unions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip at UNRWA denounced the code, saying, "We call on UNRWA management to respect our values, our common sense, and our Islamic morals, and not to spread such ideas." They told union members to return the booklet unsigned.

The head of the Hamas government media office, Salama Maarouf, said, "We clearly declare that this matter is unacceptable to us, and we see it as a clear violation by the agency's management of its internal regulations and its founding work protocol, which requires it to adhere to the values, customs, and laws of the communities to which it provides services."

The Democratic Assembly of UNRWA Workers "called on the UNRWA administration to retract the bulletins and immediately investigate who placed them in the bulletins, and to apologize to the great Palestinian people for this incident, which is considered a dagger in the side of the Palestinian refugee." It also said that the Code "calls for immorality."

The Association of Palestine Scholars said that UNRWA was "glorifying obscenity and vice, and targeting the moral and humanitarian values ​​of Palestinian society.”

You know, the moral and humanitarian values that celebrates murdering Jews.
