Trudeau gives your cash to Hamas-influenced group

Trudeau gives your cash to Hamas-influenced group
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems to prefer spending his time – and your money – overseas. 
While Trudeau was glad-handing with the communist dictator of Cuba, his government announced funding to a UN organization with open ties to Islamist terrorists.
On Wednesday, the Trudeau government announced it would send $25 million taxpayer dollars to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), an organization that is supposed to provide relief and social services to Palestinian people. 
This may not seem out of the ordinary, since Canada funds all sorts of UN projects and schemes. But UNRWA is not just another UN agency.
UNRWA has, according to various experts, been infiltrated by Hamas members and sympathizers. Hamas is an Islamist terrorist group, as designated by the Government of Canada. 
Unlike most other UN agencies, UNRWA employs highly partisan and radical ideologues. UNRWA employees openly support terrorism and routinely elect a slate of pro-Hamas, pro-terrorism candidates to run its official union.
UNRWA has a long and sordid history of supporting terrorism.
In 2002, an UNRWA ambulance driver was arrested by Israeli security services. The man, Nidal Nazzal, admitted to transporting weapons and explosives to Hamas terrorists using his UN-branded ambulance.
The agency promised to crack down on employees who openly work with terrorists. 
And yet a decade later, during the 2014 war between Hamas and Israel, terrorists were caught on video storing weapons and launching rockets from UNRWA buildings.
When UNRWA schools and hospitals aren't being used to hide rockets and launch attacks against Israel, they are being used to indoctrinate a new generation of Arab children with a dangerous and hateful ideology.
According to a report from the Mideast Freedom Forum, UNRWA schools and textbooks "propagate a climate of violence" and undermine a peaceful and constructive understanding of Jewish people and the state of Israel.
Occasionally, UNRWA will cancel its school programs altogether and send Palestinian children directly to Hamas – where they receive military training and are groomed to become terrorists.
A 2014 report by the Near East Policy Research Center, titled "The UNRWA-Hamas Axis" provides an explanation for the extremism within local schools. The report found that eleven out of fourteen positions on the UNRWA teachers' union were held by members of Hamas.
As I wrote in a column last February, "UNRWA is an obstacle to peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict. It must be condemned for this behaviour, not supported by Canadian tax dollars."
UNRWA still hasn't cleaned up its act, and has demonstrated no desire to change.
So why is Justin Trudeau sending our money to a group associated with hatred and terrorism?
Perhaps the best explanation comes from Trudeau himself, in an interview he did with The New York Times Magazine. Trudeau told the American publication that "there is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada."
Trudeau doesn't believe in the preeminence of Canadian values like justice, peace, freedom and democracy. He believes that all cultures are equal, and that there is nothing special about the West. That is why he admires communist leaders in Cuba and China, and that is why his government funds Islamist activities.
Just hours after the Boston Marathon bombings, Trudeau said that rather than condemning terrorists, we should look at the root causes of terrorism.
If Trudeau knew a bit more about the Arab-Israeli conflict, perhaps he'd realize that UNRWA – an organization that indoctrinates children and incites violence against Jewish people – is one of the major root causes of terrorism in the region.

B'nai Brith Canada

Here's the full petition: 

B'nai Brith Canada is demanding that the Canadian Government provide evidence that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) no longer engages in problematic and dangerous behaviour, and is operating at a standard in line with Canadian values and expectations as it relates to human rights.
"To turn over $25 million in aid to an agency that has supported the Palestinian Authority's sustained campaign to rewrite Judeo-Christian history, incite violence, and delegitimize the State of Israel shows a lack of accountability for Canadian taxpayer dollars," said Michael Mostyn, B'nai Brith Canada's Chief Executive Officer.
"While the Government is introducing anti-terrorism provisions, which is commendable, there is no mention of preventing indoctrination and incitement, which frequently leads to violence. Incitement has been one of the primary complaints the world has had in regards to UNRWA, and it has not been addressed in Wednesday's governmental announcement."

B'nai Brith has made its concerns known to the Government. At this time, we remain unconvinced that UNRWA has made any substantive changes to its operating procedures and that these procedures still allow for the lives of innocent civilians to be endangered. We demand that, prior to any transfer of funds, the Government provide Canadians with evidence of these changes to ensure that taxpayer dollars will not be used to promote incitement to terrorism or indoctrinate the next generation of Palestinian youth against Israel and the Jewish people.

If you agree that the Government needs to show evidence that UNRWA has changed its operating procedures and is no longer contributing to the Palestinian Authority's campaign to demonize and delegitimize the Jewish people and our unbreakable ties to the State of Israel, please sign our petition below.
We the undersigned believe that Canadian taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund organizations with links to terrorist organizations like Hamas, and call upon the Government to provide evidence that UNRWA has substantively changed its operating procedures to prevent any and all incitement to violence.
