A Palestinian NGO funded by UN bodies and foreign governments held a tree planting ceremony last Friday for “Land Day,” in which it honored 209 “martyrs of the intifada” in a mass celebration of the recent terror wave.
The event held by the NGO, Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC), was exposed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) on Monday. PMW noted that among the “martyrs” were numerous terrorists who murdered or tried to murder Israelis since last September, in a terror surge that has left 34 dead and over 400 wounded.
PMW further revealed that UAWC is funded by UNRWA and UNDP, both UN bodies, as well as the governments of Australia, Spain, Netherlands and Japan in addition to numerous European NGOs, as recorded in UAWC’s website.
“Their funding of the UAWC implicates all these institutions and organizations in the act of honoring murderers of Israelis,” explained PMW, noting that it has recently exposed similar cases of UN funded groups honoring terrorists.
Among the terrorists honored with an olive tree and mentioned in a report on the event last Friday in the official Palestinian Authority (PA) daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida was Muhannad Halabi, who stabbed and murdered two Israelis and wounded the wife and 2-year-old baby of one them in Jerusalem’s Old City last October.
