As rumors began circulating that UNRWA employees participated in the terrorist attacks against Israel, the White House began trying to hide where it was sending its “humanitarian aid.”
Now it’s beginning to look like one of Biden’s favorite UN groups has over a thousand links to the terrorist organization Hamas.
In a bombshell investigation, The Wall Street Journal writes:
Six United Nations Relief and Works Agency workers were part of the wave of Palestinian militants who killed 1,200 people in the deadliest assault on Jews since the Holocaust, according to the intelligence dossier. Two helped kidnap Israelis. Two others were tracked to sites where scores of Israeli civilians were shot and killed. Others coordinated logistics for the assault, including procuring weapons.
Of the 12 Unrwa employees with links to the attacks, seven were primary or secondary school teachers, including two math teachers, two Arabic language teachers and one primary school teacher.
The information in the intelligence reports—based on what an official described as very sensitive signals intelligence as well as cellphone tracking data, interrogations of captured Hamas fighters and documents recovered from dead militants, among other things—were part of a briefing given by Israel to U.S. officials that led Washington and others to suspend aid to Unrwa.
Intelligence estimates shared with the U.S. conclude that around 1,200 of Unrwa’s roughly 12,000 employees in Gaza have links to Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and about half have close relatives who belong to the Islamist militant groups. Both groups have been designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S. and others. Hamas has run Gaza since a 2007 coup.
One senior official told the newspaper, “UNRWA’s problem is not just ‘a few bad apples’ involved in the October 7 massacre. The institution as a whole is a haven for Hamas’ radical ideology.”
The investigation finally forced the Biden administration to put a pause on funding the terrorist allies.
“The Department of State has temporarily paused additional funding for UNRWA while we review these allegations and the steps the United Nations is taking to address them,” State Department spokesman Matthew Miller told The Washington Free Beacon.
Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, has been briefed about the allegations, his spokesperson said.
“The Secretary-General is horrified by this news,” said spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric.
“An urgent and comprehensive independent review of UNRWA will be conducted,” Dujarric added.
In 2021, the Biden White House restored American funding to the UNRWA after Trump had cut it off after saying that the organization was “irredeemably flawed.”
Biden gave the group over $700 million. Despite knowing the terrorist attack was forthcoming, the president allegedly sent millions in “aid” to UNRWA.
