      US Investigates Claims UNRWA Funds Hate and Violence


      United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Members of Congress are demanding an investigation into the provision of financial assistance provided to UNRWA - The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. It is alleged that UNRWA uses curricula promoting violence, anti-Semitism and religious extremism among Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Authority. A United Nations internal investigation team denies the allegations.
