The U.N. aids and abets terrorists, again

Michelle Malkin on the latest scandal involving the United Nations, the “ambulances-for-terrorists scandal.” Michelle reports that Israeli television has film footage of armed Arab terrorists in southern Gaza using an ambulance owned and operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) as getaway transportation after murdering six Israeli soldiers in Gaza City on May 11. Although the U.N. inssits that this was an isolated incident and that the driver was forced to transport the gunmen, Malkin points out that “this ambulances-for-terrorists program has been going on for years. And ‘humanitarian’ workers have been willing collaborators.” For example, according to the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center at the Center for Special Studies (CSS), senior UNRWA employee Nahed Rashid Ahmed Attalah confessed to using his official U.N. vehicle to bypass security and smuggle arms, explosives, and terrorists to and from attacks. And Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, recently documented how “buildings and warehouses under UNRWA supervision are allegedly being used as storage areas for Palestinian ammunition and counterfeit currency factories.” According to Malkin, Cantor’s 2002 report also noted that UNRWA hosts summer camps in martyrdom for young terrorists-in-training. Rep. And Chris Smith, R-N.J., has also lobbied for increased scrutiny of UNRWA funding, which has been used to publish anti-Semitic textbooks and posters in schools that “glorify homicide bombers and the slaughter of innocents.”
There’s also a scandal within the scandal — according to AccessMiddleEast.org, not one U.S. television news station has expressed interest in showing American viewers the footage of the U.N. ambulance being used as a terrorist getaway car. If the footage were shown, perhaps many more Americans would reach the same conclusion Malkin has — “Not one more American dime should go to fund the bloody self-righteousness of the world’s most generous terrorist relief organization.”
