Hamas sleeper cell and Islamic Jihad discovered working together inside UNRWA - Christine Douglass-Williams


by Christine Douglass-Williams

While many Western governments have rightly condemned state-funding of terror, they too have found themselves reeled in, in the name of humanitarianism, to fund the same jihad terror. 

“The head of UNRWA’s employees’ union in the Gaza Strip is a fairly anonymous Hamas official who has been placed by the terror organization inside the agency as a “sleeper” who can use the organization’s resources for Hamas’ purposes.” Alarming news considering the enormous global funding going into UNRWA [United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees];  and in fact into other jihad terror groups who manipulate ‘charities’ who claim to aid the ever expanding Palestinian refugee “crisis”.

If Western funding for all jihad terror organization (and all of their affiliates) ended, the jihad mission against Israel and against the West would be substantially stymied.

While many Western governments have rightly condemned state-funding of terror, they too have found themselves reeled in, in the name of humanitarianism, to fund the same jihad terror. Only Donald Trump has been taking an active role in ending such funding. For example, he pulled out of the Iran Deal, cut hundreds of millions in ‘aid’ to Pakistan; and while America was UNRWA’s biggest single donor, last year, the U.S. ended all funding for UNRWA . The U.S. State Department described the agency as “irredeemably flawed”.  UNRWA was found to be inciting anti-Israel sentiment within its Jerusalem schools. Arab children were “being taught that they will one day destroy Israel and replace it with a Palestinian state.” The Palestinian jihad terror mission continues to thrive on Western taxpayer dollars.

UNRWA has objected to its staff belonging to Hamas or other terror organizations but has not taken decisive action on its own initiative to enforce its objections.

“Exposed: Hamas Has a Sleeper Cell Inside UNRWA”, by Baruch Yedid, Jewish Press,  June 24, 2019:

The head of UNRWA’s employees’ union in the Gaza Strip is a fairly anonymous Hamas official who has been placed by the terror organization inside the agency as a “sleeper” who can use the organization’s resources for Hamas’ purposes, TPS has learned.
The United Professional List recently won the elections for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees’ (UNRWA) employees union.
Arab media reported that the event was perceived as a victory for Islamic elements in the Gaza Strip and underscored the failure of their opponents on the Fatah list. The List, a joint Hamas-Islamic Jihad organization, won 22 of the 27 seats.
Amir al-Mashal, who as already served as head of the UNRWA employees union in Gaza, led the List to its latest victory.
Salameh Shalakh, an Islamic Jihad official, admitted that the List was “a union of Islamic organizations.”
The United Professional List has previously served as a non-for-profit Islamic organization but has been listed as a political organization since Hamas took control of the Strip in 2007.
This group ran for the Palestinian Authority (PA) parliament in 2006 and in the municipal elections in 2005 and now serves as the firm basis for Hamas’ regime.
Gazan officials estimate that Al-Mashal is a “sleeper” agent, a Hamas member placed at a key position from which he can use the organization’s resources for the terror group’s needs.
Dr. Suhail al-Hindi, a member of Hamas’ Political Politburo, served as chairman of the UNRWA employee union before al-Mashal.
Al-Hindi served as a senior member of UNRWA, which is funded by the U.S. and the European Union and which is responsible for disseminating support to hundreds of thousands in Gaza while serving as a senior Hamas member, designated by the U.S. as a foreign terror organization.
After his appointment to Hamas’ leadership, al-Hindi issued a series of denials claiming he had not been elected to Hamas’ bureau. He even claimed he planned to sue those responsible for the reports.
UNRWA has objected to its staff belonging to Hamas or other terror organizations but has not taken decisive action on its own initiative to enforce its objections.
UNRWA suspended al-Hindi after it was discovered that he had been elected to Hamas’ political leadership and even Israel exerted significant pressure.
