U.N. Watch: More propaganda
Once again the United Nations aid agency for Palestinians obliterates its credibility with a report blaming Israel for an increase in Gaza’s infant mortality rate.
Dr. Akihiro Seita, with the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), suggests that Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip since 2007 is a contributing factor in the infant mortality uptick, according to a report from Agence France-Presse.
But nowhere does the UNRWA report cite the influence of Hamas terrorists and their anti-Israel obsession over the same period.
And how curious, too, that, according to the supposedly objective relief agency report, the number of infant deaths has gone down over recent decades —before Hamas took control.
In the latest survey, for 2013, the number of babies dying before reaching their first year rose to 22.4 per 1,000 live births, up from 20.2 per 1,000 in 2008.
Casting more doubt on UNRWA findings is that “no appropriate registration exists for infant deaths among Palestine refugees in Gaza,” writes Claudia Rosett of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
And UNRWA is the same “humanitarian” agency that posts anti-Israel cartoons on its Facebook page, according to the group U.N. Watch.
Instead of building health care centers with the aid it receives, Hamas dedicates itself to the destruction of Israel. UNRWA’s propaganda only sustains that single-minded objective.
