It happens every October, millions of children across America on their scariest costumes and going door to door asking for candy. Our houses are swarmed by lots of little ghosts, goblins, Batmen and and Peter Pans. Many of the visitors will be raising money for an organization that funds terrorist and anti-Semitic activities. The organization, The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is best known by the little orange boxes they give the children for use in collecting pennies.
What most people don’t realize is, some UNICEF money funds projects like Palestinian Summer Camps that train kids to be Homicide Bombers, Production of Anti-Semitic literature, it has written materials praising the oppressive north Korean regime. In short those pennies are being used to support terror and hatred.
Today we have a new example. PMW has discovered an advertisement featuring anti-Semitic imagery bearing the UNICEF logo was placed by an NGO that enjoys the United Nations agency’s support. The advertisement was placed by a Palestinian Authority youth organization, PYALARA (Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation), which is funded by UNICEF. It promotes a TV show created by PYALARA
The ad 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 is another example of the misuse of UN funding. An ad by a Palestinian youth organization, PYALARA, which is funded by UNICEF, shows an axe destroying a Star of David. The UNICEF logo is right on the ad. The large Star of David that has been destroyed has on it pictures of stars and stripes, presumably representing the USA, and an additional smaller Star of David.
The organization PYALARA (Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation) has been funded by UNICEF since the year 2000: “PYALARA has been chosen by UNICEF as a major strategic partner in Palestine.” [PYALARA website]
On the axe that destroys the Star of David is the word: “Boycott!” in the imperative tense. Youth are invited to watch the PA TV program calling for a boycott of Israel. In the program the host acknowledges that they are aware that the boycott is illegal but they have chosen to ignore this:
“We know that the Palestinian Authority is tied to a number of agreements that prohibit it from completely boycotting Israel… we call upon all the youth, to all the residents, to all businesses and stores, to completely boycott the Israeli goods in their stores.”
The program started as follows: “The program Speak Up has decided to dedicate this program to a theme which is a national obligation upon each of us – the topic of boycotting Israel in all ways.”[PA TV March 21, 2010]
The ad reads that the weekly youth program Speak Up is “produced in cooperation with PBC (PA TV) with the support of UNICEF.”
