FOI docs reveal Liberals glossing over UN group's terror ties

Brian LilleyArchive

For well over a year, I’ve been talking about the Trudeau government’s flirtation with funding a UN body that has had close connections with terrorist groups, that has employees that glorify terrorism, and that educates children to hate Jews and Israel.

Of course, I’m speaking of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

Canada started funding UNRWA again recently despite some grave concerns and the latest documents I’ve obtained through access to information show a government desperate to cover this up, gloss over concerns and rush the money out the door before Canadians ever knew what was happening.

An email, calls for “strict omerta”, the mafia code of silence. (page 206) While also asking if the payments could go to UNRWA on November 7th.

The announcement of the money wasn’t made until November 15th, a week later. And the plan for rolling this out, included giving a heads up to the NDP and Green leader Elizabeth May, but not to the Conservatives who opposed the move. (page 39)

Why the rush and the secrecy? Because the Liberals knew this would be controversial and they know there are problems with UNRWA.

Whatever good cause the organization was started with back in the 1940s, it has become an organization that has far too much rot in it. From staff unions controlled by the likes of Hamas, a banned terror group in Canada, to the hiding of Hamas arms caches in UN facilities during the 2014 rocket attack reign of terror in Israel.

Canada had long been a funder of UNRWA but after this information came to light, after one too many incidents of school books used by UNRWA inciting hatred, Canada, under Stephen Harper pulled its funding, but the Liberals never liked that move.

It’s not like Canada stopped giving humanitarian aid to the Palestinians, it just didn’t go to UNRWA because there were concerns it was being diverted to Hamas, to support terrorism.

But even as the Liberals prepared to reinstate funding, they acknowledged that money being diverted to terrorism was a possibility. Throughout the document there is talk of increased “due diligence” on this issue and in a chart meant to deal with controversial issues, this is part of the answer given on the idea money could end up in the wrong hands. (PAGE 71 & 72)

“As with all Canadian assistance to the West Bank and Gaza, Canada exercises enhanced due diligence on funding for UNRWA. This includes ongoing oversight, regular site visits, a systematic screening process, and strong anti-terrorism provisions in funding agreements.”

The document also says:

“Canada is working with UNRWA to include further monitoring, neutrality, accountability, and reporting requirements to assure compliance with Canada's expectations.”

When you have to include extra vigorous oversight and demand neutrality, maybe there is a problem. Maybe you should send your aid dollars to another group.

But this is about more than aid, more than helping Palestinians, this is about Justin Trudeau and the Liberals sucking up to the UN to win the security council seat at the next vote.

Now, as for neutrality, why would that be an issue? Well because as UN Watch has documented in its report many of the teachers and administrators at UNRWA, at least according to their social media profiles, love Adolf Hitler, hate Jews, celebrate killings, stabbing and bombing and generally back terrorist groups.

They also made a video documenting this so lawmakers could see for themselves before they made the decision to give money to UNRWA, but they still did.

Don’t worry though, the Government of Canada under Justin Trudeau is making sure we train them to be neutral on social media, or to hide their support for terrorism as can be seen in an email from Jacqueline Théoret, an executive at Global Affairs, providing some communications lines. (page 115 of ATIP)

“As with all Canadian assistance to the region, there will be enhanced due diligence applied to UNRWA funding. This includes ongoing oversight, regular site visits and strong anti-terrorism provisions. Canada will also provide part of its funding to train staff on proper use of social media.”

Alright, let’s look at one of the teachers profiled by UN Watch in their report.

Nwara Noor Nwara, who identifies herself as an UNRWA teacher on her Facebook profile, published the post below, in which a close-up of several machine guns is accompanied by the text “we are with the resistance.”

I looked at her Facebook timeline and quickly found a posting mourning the death of Muhammed Kota, the chief bomb maker for Hamas who died in an accident recently. As in he blew himself up.

But there is Nwara Noor Nwara mourning the man that made so many bombs to kill so many innocent people.

UNRWA teachers still supporting terror, Canada now supporting terror.

I’m not arguing against humanitarian aid, I’m arguing against supporting a group that far too often has been shown to have dangerous connections to terrorist groups while also inciting death to the Jews and an end to Israel.

Canada can do much good in the world but it won’t accomplish that by giving money to groups like UNRWA.

Thanks Liberal voters. I was really concerned that my tax dollars might not be used to fund terrorism.

What do Canadians do to get this little puke arrested?

These lefties are like women who write to convicted murderers in the penitentiary. The need some kind of warped thrill or twisted cachet of romancing a bad ass. Not quite sure of the motivation but I’m sure some psychologist can flesh it out for us. At any rate it is the same motivation that lefties have for murderous regimes and religions.

They loved Stalin, supported Hitler, can’t get enough of those religion of pieces dudes. Maybe its just a desire to be a pseudo-intellectual contrarian.

This is a wake up call to the world regarding the UN. It’s not as good as people think, it’s predominantly an islamo fascist war mongering organization. Dismantle the UN, charge it with crimes against humanity and holocausts around the world and shut it down forever. This is a very good, informative video Brian.

Maurice Potvin, thank you for answering my question. I’m believe your numbers are correct. Incredibly shocking and sad, there are daily Islamic terror attacks worldwide. Thank you for tracking this.

Excellent reporting Brian. We need to let more Canadians know this.

Oops – dyed in the wool! I do wish we could edit our comments.

My older sister is a housekeeper for many of the elderly Jewish people in Ottawa. Many knew PET personally, and have been loyal to the liberal party. My sister is a died in the wool conservative, so she has had many political discussions with her employers over junior and the liberal party. It’s only recently that they are beginning to admit that junior hates them, and means to do them harm.

Not certain if any readers here have ever worked for the UN in Israel – as a military officer I did – for about two years.

The UN is never to be trusted.

You will never find a Canadian military officer that has a good opinion of the UN organization.

The UNRWA is truly, truly corrupt.

But then again so is the limp wristed boy who is the ruler of Canada.

That is why the cash is flowing – look into the background of the boy who rules Canada and you will find islam is extensive – he supports it big time.

Look into the background of the boy who rules Canada and you will find the Jews rate very low on his opinion scale.

Canadians put this boy in to power – they now will suffer through.

I have so little faith in major city resident Canadians any more that I am predicting (hope I am wrong) a majority at the next election as well.

It is a long time from being over.

In the end, Canadians of all stripes will HATE Justin Trudeau more than his, apparent father, Pierre.
Much, much more.
If Canada even survives the Trudeaus…and their Globalist comrades and accomplices.

Does anyone remember when PET died and junior was on stage talking about him. He didn’t look like he was mourning at all. He was basking in the the attention. All narcissists love themselves more than anything else, and they love being the center of attention. They will do anything for power and fame. So yes, Maggie should be very careful. Though I can’t seem to get that image out of my head, of Maggie and Sophie wearing head scarves. I think it was MacLean’s magazine that published the pic. So I’m not sure either one of these ladies knows of the true intentions, of the traitor in their midst.

Its what MARXISTS do.

Will the adverse effects of the Trudeau policies manifest themselves sufficiently to overthrow him in the next election? That is the question. Canada has become so entrenched in this out of control leftist philosophy that I wonder.

Drew, I don’t think the terrorists would attack Trudeau or any of the Liberals. They’re so flagrantly on the side of the terrorists, that the terrorists wouldn’t dream of attacking them.

A Rebel Fan it would not surprise me too much if he did sell his mom for fame.
I would seriously not give a damn if some member of the liberal party or Justin are were ever attacked by terrorists, they would damn well deserve it.

Tammie Putinski-Zanbelt: I use My numbers are different than their posted totals because I take their figures going back to 9/11, 2001, and add up each year to the end of 2016, which added up to 32,543 Attacks, 208,513 Killed, 291,891 Injured (I checked and rechecked the numbers several times so my addition is correct), and then I add to it the daily totals thus far in 2017. There hasn’t been one signal day thus far that the number hasn’t increased. If my number are wrong, it’s because their totals are wrong. But I trust their totals. So Islamic terrorism happens EVERY DAY!

Margaret Trudeau had better be careful. It seems like Justin would sell his own mother if he thought he could get a seat at the UN for the sale.

Maurice Potvin, I have meaning to ask you about which site you are using to track terrorist attacks since 9/11 (not being critical, asking because I am curious) Thank you.

‘Sunny way’ lunatics.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 33,010 Attacks, 211,711 Killed, 295,786 Injured that we know of.

What Brian Lilley has uncovered in his investigation is a definite political scandal. The government needs to answer to the people. We the people, should shine a light on this and widely share this report, and demand answers in the House of Commons. Trudeau likes to talk about transparency, well, his government is about as transparent as a brick wall. The Conservatives need to push for answers and keep pushing. I don’t know if John Baird had a protege or not, he certainly knew how to address an issue with tenacity.
How many other government policies/spending fall under the title of “strict omerta”?
This can be a huge scandal for Justin, and the international community probably would heavily criticize this. We need this report to be picked up in the US; UK; Europe; Australia……

Everything justin does is to spite the previous government. He’s going back to 3rd place after this reign

Go to House of Commons e-Petitions and sign e909, the one wanting the constitution changed to refuse sharia as a legitimate system. Takes all of one minute.

I just e-mailed Trudeau and copied my Conservative Member of Parliament.
I outlined the reason why funding to UNRWA should be stopped immediately; “Canadians do not want tax dollars funding organizations with ties to HAMAS or spreading anti-Semitic teachings”. I also explained that I am very troubled by the fact this was done in secrecy, using mafia code words in e-mails within the government; while not giving the official opposition this information and rolling out funding very quickly.
I sent a separate e-mail to my MP with a link to Brian Lilley’s report and asked him to share this with the Conservative Caucus. I hope he does share it & these facts are discussed during Question Period.
If you agree that Trudeau has once again crossed the line, please e-mail him and demand that funding to UNRWA is to stop.
