A report into antisemitism among staff at the UN Relief and Works Agency has highlighted a series of disturbing recent posts on Facebook.
Hani Al Ramahi, who describes himself as a “Projects Support Assistant at UNRWA”, posted an image on October 8th in which a keffiyeh-clad man grasps a blood-covered knife bearing the Palestinian colours. The caption reads: “Stab Zionist dogs.”
Two days earlier on October 6th, fellow UNRWA employee Ibrahim Ali, who lives in Hebron, posted a series of videos on his timeline that glorify the shootings and stabbings of Israeli Jews.
Um Karam, who identifies himself as a teacher at UNRWA, posted the widely-distributed video of a sermon in which Sheikh Abu Rajab pulled out a knife and exhorted Palestinians to murder Jews in the name of Islam. And on October 4th an UNRWA employee named Saleh Mohsen celebrated the outbreak of such stabbing attacks against Israelis by calling for a “West Bank Intifada”.
These are only four of numerous similar cases highlighted by the report – for more details click here.
