BBC News maintains its silence on the UNRWA ethical abuses story

A week has passed since revelations concerning alleged mismanagement and abuses of authority at the highest levels of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees emerged.

BBC ignores UNRWA ethical abuses story

The BBC continues to maintain ‘radio silence’ on that issue and – although it did take the time to inform audiences that “[l]ast year the US stopped contributing to the UN Relief and Works Agency (Unrwa), which has been supporting Palestinian refugees since 1949 [sic]” two days after that story broke – it did not apparently consider the fact that Switzerland and the Netherlands subsequently suspended their funding to the agency worth reporting.

Since then Belgium has followed suit.

BBC reporting in August 2018

“Belgium has temporarily suspended its funding to UNRWA, following reports of a UN investigation into ethical misconduct among its senior staff, according to Israel’s Embassy in Belgium.

The embassy tweeted about the suspension on Friday, quoting from Belgian Minister of Finance and Development Cooperation, Alexander De Croo, who stated, “If the accusations are true, it’s completely unacceptable.””

In short – three countries suspend their funding to a UN agency in the wake of an ethics report revealing alleged mismanagement and abuse of authority at its highest levels and yet the BBC does not consider that its audiences need to know about that story.

  1. An increasing number of the British public now know that they get reliable news coverage from following NPR, EuroNews and other sources, where they can at least be sure that most of the world’s news is actually covered, instead of being ignored. The BBC Tax is just an increasing waste of money, and a growing number of people are cottoning on to this.

  2. But the world are unlikely to hear such a story from the pro UN (read pro Islamic) BBC because they know that a large number of countries that populate the UN headquarters are Islamic based and Islam doesn’t do embezzlement, theft and corruption does it? Not arf….it is all part of taqiyya a form of Islamic deception. The Quran (16:106 and 3:28 ) allows Muslims to lie in order to protect themselves or to protect the Muslim community i.e. deception of the infidel (non Muslims) Just another element in the struggle to create a world caliphate. All countries need to withdraw funding to UNWRA a racist indoctrination program that teaches programs Palestinians from birth, to die as martyrs killing Jews in the false hope of 70 virgins in the afterlife.
