Over $730 million has been funneled by the Biden Administration to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), an organization for refugee assistance in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that has harbored personnel who incited violence against the Jewish people.  It has been revealed through a March joint report by the non-governmental agency U.N. Watch and Israeli non-profit Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education, that UNRWA has been accused of hiring educators who “regularly call to murder Jews” and use textbooks “that glorify terrorism, encourage martyrdom, demonize Israelis and incite antisemitism.” Experts bemoan grants and other funding from the State Department to Palestinian organizations due to lack of “guardrails” and “a high risk” that Hamas could access the money.  In 2018 Trump ended funding to UNRWA saying that it’s an “irredeemably flawed operation.”  Under Biden, the decision was reversed and the U.S. is currently the agency’s largest funder.
