Unwraveling the Trudopian Approach to UNRWA

The approach? In a nutshell, it's to fund the Hamas-aiders/abettors up the wazoo, and to delude oneself that all is well with this eliminationist body.

Here's how one of Justin's bafflegab-spouting factotums unpacks it:
Responding to CJN queries, Louis Belanger, director of communications for the Minister of International Development, said, “The Government of Canada does not tolerate any misuse or diversion of assistance to support terrorism. Accountability and safeguards are central to the management of Canada’s development and humanitarian assistance in the West Bank and Gaza. 
“Canada is aware that UNRWA has faced criticism and allegations on controversial issues – some are based on fact, while others are unfounded. UNRWA schools use the textbooks of the jurisdiction in which they educate because students in UNRWA schools sit for local exams…UNRWA closely monitors and reviews the curriculum in its schools to ensure consistency with the values of the United Nations and with UNRWA’s expectations. When problematic issues are identified by UNRWA in the local curriculum, they provide enrichment materials and alternatives to give further context and represent UN values.”
UNRWA in sync with "UN values," eh? What say you to that, Mr. N.?:
However, Hillel Neuer, executive-director of UN Watch, a Geneva-based watchdog group, said “UN Watch is gravely concerned that Canada is yet again handing UNRWA millions of taxpayer dollars to fund teachers who endorse Hitler and advocate the murder of Jews. 
“Despite a detailed report that I presented at Parliament in April, identifying 60 more UNRWA employees who preach anti-Semitism and jihadi terrorism, neither the Trudeau government nor UNRWA has informed us of a single UNRWA teacher who has been fired as a result. This calls into question Canada’s claim, when it announced its original $25-million funding in November, that UNRWA has a policy of ‘zero tolerance.’ 
“The government’s new announcement that UNRWA will be hiring a ‘neutrality co-ordinator’ is of little use so long as UNRWA sends the message that preachers of anti-Semitic hate and terror are welcome to teach before classrooms of vulnerable children.”
"Zero tolerance" for the reality and continuation of a Jewish Israel: that's merely one of the sacred "UN values" that our Liberal government (along with Trump's) upholds by continuing to fund UNRWA.

Update: My amiga LRC has some thoughts on the matter.
