This coming Tuesday millions of children across America will be donning their scariest costumes and going door to door asking for candy. It’s that Halloween time of the year again.
Whether you are a parent and whether your children go “trick or treating,” you can expect your house to be swarmed by lots of little ghosts, zombies, Captains America, Disney princesses, and vampires. Many of the visitors will be carrying those little orange UNICEF boxes. Please remember when you greet the kids to give them loads of wrapped candy, but don’t — please don’t — give a penny to UNICEF. It supports terrorism, anti-Semitism, and hatred toward Israel.
Don’t blame the little kids. Just refuse politely. They are totally unaware of how sinister this agency is, and so probably so their parents.
It’s doubtful that many read the March 2013 UNICEF report, “Children in Israeli Military Detention,” which is yet another example of UN agencies collaborating with Palestinian advocacy NGOs to promote the demonization of Israel and promote Palestinian propaganda, rather than policy improvements. Furthermore, NGO Monitor has created a report called No Way To Treat A Child, which disproves each of the charges in the UNICEF report.
UNICEF partially funds the British charity, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP), which according to the evidence provided by NGO Monitor supports terrorism and anti-Semitism, while promoting distorted and false narratives under the guise of medical expertise and scientific fact.
- MAP focuses on the “nakba” (catastrophe of the creation of Israel) as a central theme in its work. MAP has dedicated newsletters, reflections, and several articles on the topic.
- During a wave of terrorism that began in the end of 2015, MAP’s publications repeatedly criticized Israeli policy and actions, without even mentioning the attacks on Israeli civilians.
- MAP’s “2014 Gaza relief partners” included the Hamas-run Gaza Ministry of Health (MoH) and IDEALS, an NGO funded by Interpal, which the United States has designated a terrorist entity.
- In 2009, MAP enjoyed the profits of “Seven Jewish Children,” a play that was publicly condemned for antisemitic undertones.
UNICEF partially funds Palestinian Summer Camps that promote terrorism. As reported by PALWATCH
The PA’s summer camp messages to children included glorifying terror, venerating Martyrdom-death, and picturing a world without Israel in which all Israel has become “Palestine.” Camp activities included children performing plays in which the children depicted Palestinian stabbers carrying out terror attacks and being shot and killed by “Israelis,” and dying as honored “Martyrs.” Children created sculptures and drawings of the map of “Palestine,” which includes all of Israel in addition to the PA areas, encouraging children to disregard the existence of Israel and foresee a world without it. Children were taught that Palestine’s border to the north is Lebanon and to the south is the Gulf of Aqaba, again depicting a world in which “Palestine” has replaced Israel.
This report documents how the PA and the PLO transmitted these hate messages to Palestinian children through its summer camps.
At a camp organized by the PA-funded National Committee for Summer Camps, children performed a mock stabbing terror attack at the closing ceremony of the camp [and they say dodge ball is bad].
The following sequence of photos provides an example of the kind of propaganda UNICEF helps promote to poison the minds of children.
The first photo shows a girl wearing an Arab headdress and playing the part of a terrorist, as she faces off against a boy playing an Israeli. The second and third photos show the Palestinian girl “dead” on the ground with a knife in her hand with the “Israelis” who “shot” her standing next to her. The fourth photo shows a number of children standing behind the terrorist “martyr” lying on the ground with a Palestinian flag draped over her, as is common practice at their funerals.
An ad for PYALARA, which is funded by UNICEF, demonstrates the organization’s support of anti-Semitism.
The ad shows an axe destroying a Star of David. The large Star of David that has been destroyed is decorated with stars and stripes, presumably representing the USA, and an additional smaller Star of David – a common theme in anti-Semitic cartoons that imply Jewish control of the US. On the axe that destroys the Star of David is the word “Boycott!” in the imperative tense [sic].
Notice that this advertisement featuring anti-Semitic imagery also bears the UNICEF logo in the lower left corner.
