UNRWA responds to PMW report on sporting event named after suicide bomber Idris

PMW  |
Statement by UNRWA Spokesman, Chris Gunness:
"The United Nations Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA firmly rejects allegations made by Palestinian Media Watch that an "UNRWA youth center" named an event after a suicide bomber. The false accusation comes in an article posted by Palestinian Media Watch director, Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik. The allegation that an UNRWA youth center had named an event after a suicide bomber is patently false as UNRWA has not run youth centers in the West Bank for over ten years."

Note: In response to UNRWA, PMW published a bulletin expressing disappointment that UNRWA chose to condemn the messenger PMW and not the Al-Amari Youth Center. PMW maintains that UNRWA should condemn the youth center, first and foremost, for sponsoring a football tournament named after a suicide terrorist. Second, UNRWA should condemn the youth center for unauthorized use of the name UNRWA in their logo. Third, UNRWA should condemn the youth center for publicizing on the internet a connection to UNRWA that no longer exists. Click here to view PMW's full response to UNRWA.
