UNRWA quietly admits Jordanians sexually abuse Palestinian children

May 17, 2013


(EOZ) UNRWA published a booklet talking about how your sizable donations to that agency can help “Palestine refugees.”

Here is one of their suggestions:

$318,000 rehabilitates one school and provide its students with a safe learning environment

UNRWA aims to ensure that education services meet national and international standards and provide Palestine refugee children with a safe learning environment. The rehabilitation of schools premises, built in the 1960’s, is a top priority for UNRWA in Jordan.

Current safety hazards are weakened structures due to dilapidated columns, risk of falling debris, loose plaster in the ceiling, decaying lintels and seismic risk from earthquakes. An additional risk is the sexual harassment and abuse of both male and female children in school toilets, because of their location outside the main building.

Changes to infrastructure include the relocation of toilets inside school buildings and extension of the height of the boundary walls.

UNRWA schools in Jordan need to be better protected from…Jordanians? Jordanians who like to sexually abuse little Palestinian boys and girls?

Why isn’t UNRWA complaining loudly about this outrage? Why aren’t they insisting that these children be protected by Jordanian authorities? Practically all of Palestinian Arab “refugees” in Jordan have held Jordanian citizenship since 1950, how can such abuse be buried? No doubt the schools need better security, but how come UNRWA isn’t publicly insisting that Jordan protect her own citizens? (WHY?)
