We are watching in real-time as the values of our nation are subverted.
UNRWA – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency that operates in Palestinian areas – has long been linked to Hamas and terrorism.
Despite claiming to not know about Hamas’ preparation for repeated attacks against Israel, many Hamas rocket launch sites are located right next to UNRWA schools, making it impossible for the UN-funded staff to be ignorant about what was going on.
Yet, it turns out that things are even worse than that.
It turns out that 3,000 UNRWA staff – funded by the tax dollars of donor countries from around the world including Canada – openly CELEBRATED Hamas’ barbaric and savage attack against Israel on October 7th:
A group of 3,000 @UNRWA 🇺🇳 teachers celebrated Hamas' massacre.
They are paid by your tax money.

Now, Canada’s funding of UNRWA should have ended long ago.
It was cut by the Harper Government, but Trudeau restored it.
When Canada restored funding to UNWRA we were promised extreme oversight, site visits & anti-hate training. Any proof any of that happened? pic.twitter.com/8fsW3kHKXU

Even after the October 7th attack, even after all the links between UNRWA and Hamas have been revealed, Trudeau continues to send our tax dollars to UNRWA.
And now, Salma Zahid, a Liberal MP who travelled to the Middle East is praising the organization:
Today I met with UNRWA officials in Jordan, visited one of their schools for Palestinian refugees and met with a dynamic group of their youth parliamentarians, elected by their peers to be their voices. Their passion for education and human rights is inspiring. pic.twitter.com/0dOPj2mLZ4

I met a dynamic group of young Parliamentarians at the UNRWA school in Amman who are passionate advocates for their peers, see education as the key to a good future, and worry for their peers in Gaza who can’t go to school right now. pic.twitter.com/8L9hTHK0uu

The original UN Watch report was released on January 9th. MP Zahid’s Tweet was put out on January 15th. There’s no way the Liberals didn’t know about the UN Watch report when MP Zahid praised the UNRWA.
As I’ve said before, the Liberals know what they’re doing here.
They continue to make it clear that they won’t ever take a strong stand against Hamas, against anti-Semitism, and against the UN agencies that have aided, abetted, and cheered Hamas’ horrific crimes.
The fact that a Liberal MP is praising the same group – UNRWA – that had so many staff CELEBRATE the subhuman actions of Hamas on October 7th should be a profound wakeup call on how bad things are in this country, and how much our values have already been undermined.
