WASHINGTON, D.C. – A new report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) accuses the U.S. State Department of misleading Congress over recent years regarding actions by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) over the distribution of textbooks that promote Palestinian violence against Israel, evidence that has long been documented.

UNRWA was established by the UN General Assembly in 1949 to assist Arabs who became refugees during Israel’s War of Independence the previous year.
