U.N. school's Facebook page featured violent anti-Semitic cartoons

Rebel Staff

After complaints from U.N. Watch, a United Nations school outside Damascus was forced to take down its Facebook page, which had featured "crude, anti-Semitic caricatures (...) that incite to the murder of Jews."

According to, the site was connected with the UN Relief and Works Agency's Rameh school, based in the Jaramaneh camp.

The cartoons depict "terrorist attacks against Jews using vehicles, calling it a 'car intifada.'"

This refers to "a string of Palestinian vehicular assaults last fall. One attack in October in Jerusalem killed a U.S. citizen, 3-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun, and 22-year-old Ecuadoran citizen Karen Jemima Mosquera."

U.N. Watch reminded Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in its complain that "the U.N.’s special relief agency for Palestinians [UNRWA], had received some $400 million from the U.S. last year in exchange for its signed promise to refrain from supporting terrorism and to uphold neutrality."

I find it shameful that the diversity of the confused and retrogressive left is so uniformly exclusionary and picky that it renders the exact opposite of the meaning of the word. Jewish children to the left are little more than soylent green.

Oh, a “signed promise”! I guess everything is fine now. Nothing to see here!

After sixty years of the same-old same-old at UNRWA, why is anyone surprised? BTW, did anyone find hidden weapons stored at that school?

These are the world’s only multigenerational refugees. Its time to shut down UNWRA, if not the UN itself.

Someone explain why on earth should Canada pay heed in any shape or form to the UN? I believe everyone is under the illusion that UN stands for United Nations; Time and time again they show that it stands for Ultraistic Nanity (an extremist point of view (or act) : the condition of deficiency in some respect).

“United Nations school outside Damascus” = indoctrination of the young into hatred. Its high time that Canada tells the UN to go pound sand.

It is highly doubtful that any of the arab so-called refugees in Syria have ever seen a Jew… I am so happy that Canada has completely defunded the UNRWA and our tax $ is not supporting their ‘schools’ aka terrorist training sites and missile storage facilities.

UN = socialists = partners of islamic terrorists. Too many examples of the left standing up for islamic terrorism.
