Pro-Israel lobby groups attack UK funding for UNRWA, PA

Pro-Israel lobby groups in Westminster have begun 2019 with fresh attacks on UK government funding for both the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Palestine refugee agency UNRWA.

MP Louise Ellman, vice-chair of Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), introduced her International Development Assistance (Values Promoted in Palestinian National Authority Schools) Bill to the Commons yesterday.

Ellman attacked British funding for PA schools, which she accused of promoting “incitement”.

“Ministers have been repeatedly asked to suspend all aid to the PA which directly or indirectly finances those teaching and implementing this curriculum until fundamental changes are made,” Ellman stated. “They have refused to do so. It is now time to require them to act.”
