Tomorrow, October 31, millions of children across America will be putting on their scariest costumes and going door to door asking for candy. It’s that Halloween time of the year again. Whether you are a parent or not, whether your children go “trick or treating” or not, I guarantee that your house is going to be swarmed by lots of little ghosts, zombies, Captain Americas, Disney Princesses and vampires. Many of the visitors will be carrying the little orange UNICEF boxes. Please remember when you greet the Kids, give them loads of wrapped candy but please don’t give any money to UNICEF. UNICEF supports terrorism, Antisemitism, and anti-Israel hatred.
Don’t blame the little kids just refuse politely–they are totally unaware as are their parents. Give them an extra Kit-Kat bar and send them on their merry way. The world will be better off.
For example, UNICEF’s branch in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza’s has partnerships with groups that have close ties to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist group. PLFP is designated as a terrorist group by Canada, the EU, the US, and Israel.
Per NGO Monitor
Defense for Children International – Palestine is one of these groups Their information is regularly parroted by UNICEF despite significant factual inaccuracies and obscuring of data (see NGO Monitor’s reports No Way to Represent a Child: Defense for Children International – Palestine’s Distortions of the Israeli Justice System and The Origins of “No Way to Treat a Child” for details). Another group is Addameer. Both of these associations not only violate humanitarian principles and international and domestic laws, but they compromise UNICEF and donor funding, and potentially place already vulnerable Palestinian children at risk for recruitment.
The UNICEF report, “Children in Israeli Military Detention,” is yet another example of UN agencies collaborating with Palestinian advocacy NGOs to promote the demonization of Israel and promote Palestinian propaganda, rather than policy improvements. Furthermore, NGO Monitor has created a report called No Way To Treat A Child, (embedded below) which includes a section (beginning on page 8) which proves each of the charges in the UNICEF report to be wrong.
UNICEF partially funds the British charity, Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) which according to the evidence provided by NGO Monitor, supports terrorism and Antisemitism, as well as promoting distorted and false narratives under the guise of medical expertise and scientific fact.
- MAP focuses on the “Nakba” (catastrophe of the creation of Israel) as a central theme in its work. MAP has dedicated newsletters, reflections, and several articles on the topic.
- During a wave of terrorism that began at the end of 2015, MAP’s publications repeatedly criticized Israeli policy and actions, without even mentioning the attacks on Israeli civilians.
- MAP’s “2014 Gaza relief partners” included the Hamas-run Gaza Ministry of Health (MoH) and IDEALS, an NGO funded by Interpal, which the United States has designated a terrorist entity.
- In 2009 MAP enjoyed the profits of Seven Jewish Children, a play that was publicly condemned for antisemitic undertones.

UNICEF partially funds Palestinian Summer Camps that promote terrorism. As reported by PALWATCH
The PA’s summer camp messages to children included glorifying terror, venerating Martyrdom-death, and picturing a world without Israel in which all Israel has become “Palestine.” Camp activities included children performing plays in which the children depicted Palestinian stabbers carrying out terror attacks and being shot and killed by “Israelis,” and dying as honored “Martyrs.” Children created sculptures and drawings of the map of “Palestine,” which includes all of Israel in addition to the PA areas, encouraging children to disregard the existence of Israel and foresee a world without it. Children were taught that Palestine’s border to the north is Lebanon and to the south is the Gulf of Aqaba, again depicting a world in which “Palestine” has replaced Israel.
This report documents how the PA and the PLO transmitted these hate messages to Palestinian children through its summer camps.
At a camp organized by the PA-funded National Committee for Summer Camps, children performed a mock stabbing terror attack at the closing ceremony of the camp [and they say dodge ball is bad]
The first photo shows a girl wearing an Arab headdress and playing the part of a terrorist, as she faces off against a boy playing an Israeli. The second and third photos show the Palestinian girl “dead” on the ground with a knife in her hand after the “Israelis” who “shot” her standing next to her. The fourth photo shows some children standing behind the terrorist “Martyr” lying on the ground with a Palestinian flag draped over her, as is common practice at the funeral of “Martyrs.” [Facebook page of the National Committee for Summer Camps, Aug. 3, 2017.
The ad (below) shows an axe destroying a Star of David. The large Star of David that has been destroyed is decorated with stars and stripes, presumably representing the USA, and an additional smaller Star of David – a common theme in anti-Semitic cartoons that imply Jewish control of the US. On the axe that destroys the Star of David is the word “Boycott!” in the imperative tense.
This advertisement featuring anti-Semitic imagery also bears the UNICEF logo.
Sadly there are many other examples of UNICEF supporting terrorism, Antisemitism, and anti-Israel propaganda. If you are interested in reading more, my friend Elder of Zion has written about UNICEF extensively.
The key is that if you do not support terrorism, Antisemitism, or anti-Israel propaganda.PLEASE don’t put your pennies in the orange box.
