    And what are the consequences for Israel for these false allegations? Oh right, none.

      i’m kinda hoping the “whoops our bad” from countries that suspended funding results in an apology of far more humanitarian funding than would have otherwise been given… not that it’d make up for it, but if Israel’s idea was to destroy the UNRWA then strengthening it and making sure that will never happen would be a fuck you i guess

    Thank you for sharing this news! So many major contributors (including my home nation of Canada) were far too quick to blacklist the whole of UNRWA based on unproven allegations against 12 of about 12,000 (!) staff in Gaza. Especially given the urgency of the humanitarian situation there. It is undeniably important to make sure there are investigations, but the countries that suspended aid sure acted quickly and dramatically given the lack of conclusive evidence. I really hope this spurs other nations to follow suit, and comes with a big serving of humble pie and healthy skepticism regarding future claims.
