Hamas Chief Ismail Haniyeh Was a UNRWA Teacher - Former Agency Official

Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh worked as a teacher for UNRWA in the past, former UNRWA official Ahmad Oueidat revealed in an interview with London-based media last week, according to footage translated by MEMRI.

“First and foremost, we can mention Ismail Haniyeh, who was an UNRWA teacher, and so was Dr. Talal Naji, Secretary-General of the PFLP-GC,” said Oueidat. The former UNRWA official said that UNRWA has tried “to constitute a national platform and a long arm, which would enable the Palestinian refugees to obtain their rights and first and foremost – the Right of Return.”

“There used to be quality in [UNRWA’s] education. The teaching cadres really embraced their profession. However, the Americans and the Zionists did not look at this favorably. This is why they insisted on interfering. We, as UNRWA employees, had to deal with that interference.”

“They forced us to remove pictures and various topics. They planted [in the curricula] topics that have nothing to do with our values and our heritage, under the fancy slogans like neutrality, independence, impartiality, and humanity – as if UNRWA was not humane and neutral before,” added Oueidat.

Meanwhile, an agreement reached by US congressional leaders and the White House on a massive bill funding the military, State Department, and a range of other government programs will continue the ban of US funding for the UNRWA until March 2025, two sources said on Tuesday, March 19.

“God, we ask that you bring an end to the hostilities and terror. We pray that Your infinite Love will flow to all the people and that salvation will come to all those who don’t know you yet. We pray that You will work inside the heart of every person and make them denounce terrorism, embrace Your light, and live in truth, joy, and peace from now on. We pray that all terror schemes will be stopped so that no citizen will be harmed. We thank You for hearing our pleas, and for loving us and providing for us at all times.”
