      Hamas to UN: Your Textbooks Are 'Too Peaceful'

      In its latest spat with UNRWA over educational issues, Hamas has blasted the UN relief agency over textbooks that are deemed to be “too peaceful.”

      The Associated Press (AP) reported on Thursday that Gaza's Hamas authorities have blocked UNRWA from introducing textbooks promoting human rights into local schools, saying the agency ignores “Palestinian cultural mores” and focuses too heavily on "peaceful" means of conflict resolution.
