Anti-Israel content exposed in UN agency's school textbooks, as lawmakers decry 'systematic hatred'

A newly declassified report is shedding light on anti-Israel material found in U.S.-funded textbooks used by the United Nations' Palestinian refugee agency (UNRWA) in Palestinian schools -- while faulting the State Department for leaving out key information in updates to Congress.

"Although State submitted its required reports to Congress on time, State included inaccurate information in the 2017 report and omitted potentially useful in all three reports," the GAO report says.

In particular, the GAO faults State for reporting that UNRWA had completed training teachers and distributed "complementary teaching materials" to address the problematic content that had been identified, when it had not.

In a statement to Fox News, the State Department noted that the GAO report concluded that State took steps to address problematic content.

In its statement to Fox News, the State Department noted the decision to cut funding to UNRWA, and described the refugee agency as operating in "permanent crisis mode."
